It tickles the hell out of me that all they talk about is the Rocky Mount City Council. Look at the name of this site The Community Council ain’t that nothing.
I don’t know who are the funniest them or that WHIG-TV Station. You got to look at their racist morning shows especially after a Rocky Mount City Council meeting.
Johnnie Cunningham is local black male is a favorite on both as he post on the The Community Council facebook page but call in to WHIG-TV quite regularly attempting to discredit Councilman Andre Knight and Reuben Blackwell but he can’t.
Rev. Roosevelt Higgs a local black male is a favorite on WHIG-TV regularly and has been trying to discredit Councilman Andre Knight for years even after causing Edgecombe County to pay Knight’s attorney fees when Higgs challenged his residency. This guy is something else because he has lived in the E. L. Roberson Center with his mom for since the flood of 1999 but has been used Speed for his residency. The sad part is the 4 black County Commissioners know this along with some other blacks but they have allowed him to keep messing stirred up even up to recently in March when he attempted to manipulate the appointment of the Edgecombe County Sheriff. This is just a damn shame how these black folk allow this dude to get away with mess attacking black leadership. He has even attacked some if not all of these elected officials but Rocky Mount City Council has been his pet peeve because he was WHIG-TV and some other whites flunky.
It is a damn shame how we allow certain black folk to attempt to discredit our leadership.
The system is set up so that black folk are scared to speak out even when they are hurting. When you hurt me I am going to let you know. When you hurt other folk and I can see for myself what is going on, I hurt then too. I refuse to be silent on issues that affect folk as a whole.
I look at all of these media outlets and social media sites how they single out certain folk. But most of all I look at the comments and who are not afraid to speak out. Them white folk ain’t scared.
Look at what black folk being speaking out about on social media. Just damn scared until it hit home.
Right now there are 2 things going on on social media that is dear to me, I said to me because I know some of the folk or have been contacted by some of the folk.
In Sharpsburg there is discussion on 252 Hoodnews about black folk (women/young folk) cars being towed that don’t need to be towed when the Sharpsburg Police Department call a local wrecker to get the cars. If the folk don’t pay the money to get cars back they get to sell them. I have been told and it has been stated that when the folk ask to let their cars sit there and they come back to get it or to request to call their own wrecker, they have been denied.
Today in the paper and all those I named above are going after Councilman Andre Knight. Look at the comments who are saying what. Black folk are scared to comment.
Now I understand some black folk are scared to comment because they are scared of retaliation. Well just know that when your time comes, you may need some folk to help you while you were silent while it was happening to others.
This pisses me the hell off because I refuse to be silent. I can’t understand how folk sit back and allow injustice to take place and say nothing.
I will not sit down and shut up even if you come after me. I will stand until the end.
I ain’t mad with nobody, however I will not allow you to promote mess that ain’t right. Tell the whole story!
It looks like the City Council not the Community Council voted unanimously on moving forward with the progress downtown. Well I guess this dispels the myth that it is an Andre Knight and the black council members thing.
What tickles the hell out of me is all of the comparisons that the Community Council keep putting out there about what other towns are doing and have done and ain’t done. But how in the hell do they know what can be done in Rocky Mount until it is done?
I am proud to know that Victor Vines formerly of Pinetops, NC graduate of South West Edgecombe High School Pinetops NC and NC State University Raleigh NC is one of the architectures that will design the facility.
However Barnhill Contracting another local construction company will be a part of this historical process also.
