I love a strong educated God fearing Black Woman. Rocky Mount City Manager Rochelle Small-Toney has not disappointed me although I had some doubts about how she would endure the lynching that she began to receive day one after the announcement of her hiring.
When Small-Toney came to Rocky Mount the Special Cs lynched her from the start. But because she is the strong educated God fearing Black Woman that she is, she has come in promoted and hired some strong qualified candidates. If you listen to the Special Cs you would think that she only hires Black folk. I dare anyone to check the record to see what is the make up of the city staff and report back.
I understand that the Special Cs on the Rocky Mount Concerned Citizens Facebook page are having a lynching time because of the announcement Small-Toney most recent promotion and hiring of 2 strong educated professional Black Women.
It is sad that over the years when Caucasians were in charge of running things in Rocky Mount it was no problem. But now since there has been qualified Blacks in leadership roles within the city and on the council, Special Cs are really showing how racist they can be.
My question to Rocky Mount citizens is what the fuss?
It is time for the Special Cs to end the lynching and to get onboard and stop their distractions. It is time to allow the leadership in Rocky Mount to do their jobs without having to deal with the racist rhetoric that has no merit. It is obviously clear that even the audit that the Special Cs pushed has found no fault.
I want to challenge the citizens of Rocky Mount to look at what is going on for yourself as it relates to the leadership of Rocky Mount how the city is progressing in spite of the past almost 2 years that there has been a lynching of Black Leadership. But if you look at the total picture you will see all of the leadership is working together for the better of all the citizens.
Thank you Rochelle Small-Toney for a job well done.
