Speedway owner loses staff, ‘all but 2’ sponsors after post

PINE HALL (AP) — The owner of a North Carolina racetrack said he has faced death threats, lost employees and seen “all but two” of his sponsors evaporate amid the backlash over his social media post invoking the noose found in the garage stall of Black NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace

Mike Fulp, who owns the half-mile, dirt track 311 Speedway in Stokes County, told the News & Record he knew his troubles from what he described as a joke were self-inflicted. Fulp’s post advertised “Bubba Rope” for sale on Facebook Marketplace the day after an FBI investigation determined the noose found at the Talladega Superspeedway garage had been there since at least October and was a coincidence, not a hate crime.

“I’ve lost all but two of my sponsors,” Fulp told the newspaper. “I’m responsible. I’m responsible for trying to make some jokes.”

Fulp said he’s been getting death threats and received messages threatening his family.

“My employees got harassed,” he said. “I had seven employees quit.” (Read more)

imageSources say this hangmans noose was found at Battle Park Rocky Mount NC. They big man because of the removable of their baby. I feel good to have been on the Rocky Mount Human Relations Commission during the time of the 4 Community Discussions we had on the removal. The 40,000 consultant fees I felt was not needed and the thing to do was to just remove it, but money well spent.

Morris Wilder Says Withhold Your Utility Payments

The Political Agitator’s response: My question is how in the hell do you only want a city council person to respond to the write offs how about the other folk who got millions of dollars written off and Caucasian folk been doing write offs and other for years along with other special stuff. But when Black folk start reaping the benefits it is a problem. Write offs are not illegal so go somewhere and sit down and shut the hell up. Folk don’t listen to this dude because your ass gonna be in the damn DARK!

Withhold your utility payments

I just received my utility bill in the mail as usual.

However, I decided that instead of paying the bill as I normally do, I would send a letter to the city and the mayor stating that I would be withholding my payment, and all future payments, until the City Council takes the appropriate actions to fully answer all the allegations presented in the report by the state auditor, Ms. Beth Wood.

I am urging that all the citizens of the city to take this same approach. If our words are not getting actions, maybe withholding our money will.

Sheriff puts new focus on community relations

Edgecombe County Sheriff Clee Atkinson is working to stay ahead of the curve in community relations between his officers and local residents, whether they are Edgecombe County residents or visitors.

“With recent events and unrest in our nation, my top priorities as sheriff of Edgecombe County is the safety of my deputies and serving and protecting the citizens of this county through our core values of respect, integrity and professionalism,” Atkinson wrote on the agency’s Facebook page. “As an outcome of such, we would like to take time out to reassure our citizens by sharing some common practices that are implemented in our office. They are designed to ensure fairness and transparency through our service.”

Atkinson listed eight specific items:

  • Deputies receive and will continue to receive Implicit Bias Policing Training.
  • Deputies have been outfitted with modern Axon body cameras to record encounters with the public, the cameras automatically activate when the taser or firearm is unholstered, eradicating user error.
  • Policy requires other law enforcement officers to intervene and make a report when they witness unnecessary force being used.
  • The Use of Force Continuum is followed and officers receive training on it each year.
  • Deputies are to give a warning before utilizing force when circumstances allow.
  • A Use of Force review board has been established.
  • Deputies are held to a strict social media usage policy, both on and off duty.
  • The sheriff’s office continues to actively build community relations.

“We continue to train and improve our operations to comply with federal and state law, as well as best practices to assure we serve our citizens to the best of our ability and power,” Atkinson said.

The body cameras were approved for purchase at the May meeting of the Edgecombe County commissioners.
