I am requesting the meetings at the Confederate Monument and Battle Park both be cancelled.
Some folk are saying they just heard about the meetings and are they true.
I keep telling folk I know more than what a lot of folk think I know.
This is where I stand!
I have been trying to write a response to Gwen Wilkins’ letter to editor in the Rocky Mount Telegeam for 3 days starting and stopping because I work a real job. When I am on Social Media folk be calling me (some I ignore and call them back later), inboxing me, texting me sharing information with me. I be sharing what they send me but folk think I see all of this stuff and I come up with these things. I be trying to do posts on my blog and responding to folk. I just finished the letter and posted it. Now I am getting overwhelming messages about the flyers about the meetings scheduled today at the Confederate Monument and Battle Park along with this flyer right here. Now this one right here is an insult to all Black Men who have been speaking out in Rocky Mount Johnny Cunningham, Bronson Williams, Nehemiah Smith, Troy Davis, Andre Knight, Reuben Blackwell, Cooper Blackwell, Kyle Durrell-Johnson, HD Pope and some others. As I stated last week some of these ministers need to go somewhere and sit down and shut the hell up.
From this piece of work to a piece of ….. First of all I have not defended Councilman Andre Knight so I guess you ain’t talking about me but just in case you are, yes the audit was pushed by some Rocky Mount Special Cs and their lovers some Ignant Safe Negro Black Folk. However Councilmembers Chris Miller and Tj Walker said they received calls from around 200 folk. TJ said he received calls from someone as far as Florida and he felt threatened for him and his family because of Mayor Sandy Claus Roberson telling lies that they refused to attend his Special Called Meeting. They told him to call all the media outlets and get it corrected.
Damn you want to bring up the election last October because he was a candidate but damn you fail to forget that Beth Wood NC State Auditor had an election coming up in March of this year so could it not have been said the same thing that she wanted to wait until after the primary this year? Some of us felt that was what she was waiting on.
Detailed audit? Hell with all them hours it should be detailed but as detailed as you say it was, well we will see how the agencies respond.
Oh so Rep. Shell Willingham and former Rep. Angela Bryant can’t have an opinion about the audit but you can? Damn ain’t your ass special!
Anyone that do not think there is no conversation between Beth and some of these Rocky Mount Special Cs are unconscious. Hell J. Keith Harris posted him taking a photo on Jones Street saying he is at Beth’s office.
Ignant ass save Rocky Mount from what humiliation? What has been proven is how Councilmembers Chris Miller and TJ Walker showed how Mayor Sandy Claus Roberson lied on the council and especially them saying they refused to attend a meeting. Sandy Claus even did a photo with a Police Sgt. trying to intimidate councilmembers to attend his special called meeting. They showed that ass that he has no power.
They showed that ass they won’t signing that b.s. that Councilman Lige Daughtridge Community Council because they recognize and understand they took and oath of office when they were sworn in.
Just had a flashback. I remember when you were mad with Lige and when we were calling each other I recall you telling me that you looked up Lige and his real name was Elijah Lige Daughtridge. Then I started calling him by that name for a short time.
Andre showed Mayor Sandy Claus and Lige he was not going to resign. Who in the hell does that especially before the agencies respond? Damn the last time I checked a person has their rights until they are taking away from them for a cause so why would someone give up their rights until proven guilty and reprimanded. You are really pa the hell thetic!
How damn ignant to say businesses ain’t coming to Rocky Mount. We shall see!
I am tickled to death because you know how politics work after serving in the local Democratic Party, after serving as the 1st Congressional District Democratic Party Chair and serving as 1st Vice Chair on the NC State Democratic Party until they kicked your ass out. You have been mad as hell every since I witnessed and videoed it. You even asked me to write a letter to editor about how they treated you at the last meeting you served. I did not because you had played games within the party however I didn’t like they way they mistreated you on that day by not allowing you to carry out the meeting as your position called you to do.
Gwen tell us about the $47,704 that was written off. matter of fact show it to us.
As far as having double utility bills soon, if folk didn’t use their $1200 and some even got more to pay their bills and/or saved to pay future bills, then that is a “they” problem.
Damn you don’t get to choose if the City Manager has to pay the money back you wanted to be appointed to the council and because Andre and Reuben didn’t support your ass you are still mad. You ran during election time and your ass lost so get the hell over it. Richard Joyner was the winner!
Someone even mentioned that Andre Knight was “voted in” by the voters of Ward 1 and to “get over it.” Well, truth be told, they voted him in not knowing he had not paid over $47,000 in utility bills in years. This was hidden from the good people of Ward 1, hidden from his supporters who stood at the polls for him, hidden from those who contributed money to his campaign … and it was hidden from the citizens of Rocky Mount.
Damn you say, “Someone even mentioned that Andre Knight was “voted in” by the voters of Ward 1 and to “get over it.” Well, truth be told, they voted him in not knowing he had not paid over $47,000 in utility bills in years. This was hidden from the good people of Ward 1, hidden from his supporters who stood at the polls for him, hidden from those who contributed money to his campaign … and it was hidden from the citizens of Rocky Mount.” SMDH!
He does need to resign and spare Ward 1 and the city further embarrassment and humiliation. Council members who sit by and do not stand up to this flagrant disregard of misuse of public funds for fear of losing a political seat or their job should seriously rethink their purpose. “No man can serve two masters”… Matthew 6:24.
Wow! You say, “He does need to resign and spare Ward 1 and the city further embarrassment and humiliation. Council members who sit by and do not stand up to this flagrant disregard of misuse of public funds for fear of losing a political seat or their job should seriously rethink their purpose. “No man can serve two masters”… Matthew 6:24.”
Damn you are big mad!
You need to keep that scripture on your forehead because you use your nationality to be Caucasian, Black and other depending on who you are around.
You say, “Your silence is acceptance. Fix it!”
You are LOUD but you started out saying it was about racism before you got mad with “us” because we didn’t support you for the seat that Councilman Richard Joyner was appointed to and recently was voted in.
So you are the PERFECT one but obviously you got a wake up call.
Ignorance is bliss!
Now Run & Tell That! Gwen Wilkins
Asking for me!
Anybody that didn’t know that the rioting and the looting was not going to come must not have been paying attention. What do hurting and angry folk do?
So what was so different about this moment in time that you thought that the hurting and angry folk were going to deal with the hurt and anger when they have not been given anything to help soothe the hurt and anger? I didn’t say make it go away.
So why did you think that rioting and looting would not be a part of the movement?
While folk are hurting from the COVID-19 directly and indirectly, you have Democrats who want to do something for (all) people knowing the majority of Black Folk ain’t lazy but we are all lumped into the same category. But the mentality by the good ole boys make it appear that only Black folk will benefited and not folk who look like them.
Hell I been working all of my life and been on my current job for the past 33 years and then treat me like someone that has never worked anywhere saying nope they don’t deserve any Stimulus because they will not want to go back to work. Well I have not been out of work. I am considered an Essential Worker.
Well just maybe the package that the Democrats passed around 2 – 3 weeks ago that the Republicans are holding up had been voted on and passed, the hurt and the anger may not be as bad.
Black folk are sick and tired of being treated like we are nobody but it is okay for some folk to live a good life while we have to accept being humiliated but expected to go to work and forget. It takes strong Black Folk to endure what other races can’t.
Don’t Blame Me!
