Friends Really?

My definition of a friend is one that will be willing to tell me when they agree and/or support me when they know I am doing something that I request their support. I do not need a friend who will agree with me just because we are friends and not being able to tell me that I don’t think what you are doing is a good thing.

I will tell my friends just how I feel and if they have a problem with that then so be it. I would rather have them to be mad with me because I tried to tell them instead of not letting them know how I feel. When we don’t let our friends know how we feel sometimes they may make some bad choices. If we say nothing, then we are somewhat responsible for the choice they made.

So do you have friends according to my definition and are you one that is willing to tell your friend that you can’t agree and/or support them on that issue?

Edgecombe County Who Am I? I Tell My Story And Don’t Wait For Others

In the black community folk have had this thing that if you talk about the things you do you are boasting, bragging or what the hell ever. Well if you don’t tell your story, your story may go untold or someone may just tell it when you are laid out during remarks time. Well they may tell it then but they gonna know it before then.

I have earned my rights when it comes to politics. I have done my homework and most of all educated myself by going places and getting to know the players. I know all the players locally, numerous statewide and many on the national. I am well known across the state and somewhat worldwide but that ain’t important. What I have to offer is what is important. What do you have to offer?

I know what I have done over the years and much of it has been in the background. I have done things and folk never even knew what role I have played. I don’t think no one in Edgecombe County is as passionate about our politics than I from a public standpoint. There may be some who are just as passionate but they do not show it publicly so that can be questionable and debatable. There is nothing to question or to debate when it comes to where I stand.

I am proud to be able to say I have supported some good folk as it relates to electing folk to make decisions for the folk of Edgecombe County. I have and strongly support black, brown, white and other who represent my folk of Edgecombe County but not limited to. You see it does not bother me because some folk  don’t like me, I love them anyway because I am going to fight for them anyway.

My point is folk you can like me or not, I don’t give a damn! I am going to do what I was put here to do and that is to be a voice for the voiceless. To support my brothers and sisters who want to be elected to help make Edgecombe County a better place to live. But they know that I will hold them accountable for their actions because you will not hurt my folk without me coming after you. So do right and I will do right about you.

I am who I am! I don’t play when it comes to folk making decisions that affect other folk lives. I am for truth no matter who it is for or against. I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest! I can be your best friend or your worst nightmare.

I tell folk all the time if you want to represent me and my folk in Edgecombe County you better talk to me because I will voice my opinion. I will do my homework on you and I will share it.

Just a couple of days ago we the Democratic Party Executive Committee appointed Clee Atkinson as Sheriff of Edgecombe County to fill the unexpired term of Sheriff James Knight that ends 2018. I was there when we appointed Knight and I have been there for many others. So if you don’t think I am passionate and dedicated, you better do your homework.

I am pleased with the outcome of the Sheriff appointment and most of all my heart is heavy because talking to the white community throughout the Sheriff Appointment Process, I am pleased to know that the white community supported Clee. I remember when I first joined the Democratic Party Executive Committee back in the early 90’s there was a power struggle and much race relation issues. But today I am proud to say we have come a long ways. I look forward to us moving forward getting better and better. Sheriff Knight can be given much credit for bringing us together as a race and I say thank you. I see Sheriff Clee doing the same.

I have been misunderstood many times but I strongly feel that is because folk don’t know how to take me. I am not a scared black man. I say what I mean and mean what I say. I say publicly what others say behind closed doors. I say things because they need to be said and I have seen great results after doing so. I may take some heat but I can stand the fire.

What tickles me the most is that I have been called a militant by black folks and a racist by white folk. Militant because I say what they are scared to say and because they think what I say is going to cause a disturbance but I have seen the results and they have been great. Because of what I say it creates dialogue and that is what is needed.

Called a racist. Wow! But if you look at my track record, look at the newspaper and especially my blog/social media sites, you will see that I hold my black folk accountable for their actions. I have spent my time over the years calling out more black folk who I had issues with than I have white folk. So when they call me a racist I just laugh because I know what I do and what I do will benefit all folk.

Keep on listening to those folk who speak negative of me and you may just miss your blessing.

Edgecombe County black, brown, white and other I love all of you and it ain’t nothing you can do about it.

Folk Take My Kindness For My Weakness, I Don’t Bother Folk But Some Try To Discredit Me, Not!

Folk I know more than you think I know!

Don’t get mad with me because I know. Folk share stuff with me but I do my homework to see if what they share with me is truth. One thing folk know about me is that I am going to do my homework because when I put it out there I want it to be about the trues!

Folk take my kindness for my weakness. I am not the one! I treat folk how I want to be treated but many times I have to treat folk how they want to be treated because they don’t like it when I play nice. I am flexible but I ain’t colorblind and never will be.

All Lives Matter but not until you recognize my Black …. Matter. Some folk black, white and other seems to don’t understand.

Well ya gonna learn the day!

I love you and it ain’t nothing you can do about it, but . . .

Question: So Why Can’t We March And Protest That Black Lives Matters When A Black Man Kill Another Black Man

The Watch Dog response:

Much love my brother just sharing my ignant opinion.

1. So have you participated in any marches and protests?

2. You ask, “why can’t we also March and protest when a black man kill another black man to me this is as just as important as whites killing blacks all lives matter not just black lives it was wrong what those police officers did but we can’t blame all white police officers for what a frue police officers did everybody is not races”

I posted the following on November 27, 2014

3. Do you see the difference in a black man killing a black man and a black man being killed by a police?

I want to see your response and how others respond to this one before I respond.

This should be a question that everyone need to answer to because there is a difference.

4. Who blaming all white police officers?

You say: “how can we say we love God which we have never seen if we don’t even love our brothers and sisters of all races and colors we haft to love all man kind”

I love all folk however all folk don’t love me black and white. I have been fighting for justice since the late 80’s and I have been called a militant by some blacks and a racist by some whites. Hell I know who I am and whose I am so it does not matter.

What I do know is that during my fight for justice since the late 80’s going to school board meetings, other meetings and community meetings speaking out, sometimes by myself, being singled out while fighting for all lives, black folk and white folk were at home but they benefitted from what I was doing whether they liked me or not. The sad part is when you fight for justice and those who call you everything except a child of God, they benefit as well. Too bad the fighter can’t pick and choose who will benefit. Many didn’t like me then and still don’t because I say what I mean and mean what I say because I ain’t a scared Negro.

I posted this on October 26, 2013.

Although I have chosen not to participate in any marches and protests over the past several years other than the HKonJ sponsored yearly by the NAACP and other organizations in Raleigh, I commend groups like Black Lives Matter for what they do to bring about awareness.

I challenge all folk:

I didn’t just start doing what I do, I started back in the late 80’s.

The following is the original post on Facebook posted my brother Tye Murphy

I like the fact that we all are marching and protesting that black lives matter because we do matter but I got a question why can’t we also March and protest when a black man kill another black man to me this is as just as important as whites killing blacks all lives matter not just black lives it was wrong what those police officers did but we can’t blame all white police officers for what a frue police officers did everybody is not races how can we say we love God which we have never seen if we don’t even love our brothers and sisters of all races and colors we haft to love all man kind let God deal with bad people they are going to get whats coming to them but don’t let whats going on around you make you miss heaven by having hatred in your hearts Jesus is love so love and forgive so our heavenly Father can forgive you real talk.

Van Holland Tell Us About Community Policing The Way It Was Done When The Previous Chief Was Here

Dude I want to learn the day! Tell me! So that I can run and tell that! Come on tell it Mr.!


From This Day Forward!

I will not allow anyone to disrespect me from this day forward without a response. Do not push me. I have had enough! When I talk serious business, don’t joke because everyone that knows me, know I don’t mix business with jokes!

You are not going to define me because I define me so when you go there, you damn sure gonna get it.

I do nothing without looking at what the consequences could be, so when I do something, I am willing to deal with the consequences.

Now Run and Tell That!

Want to interject “Pissed Me The Hell Off!”

Just Makes Sense Column

Kim Castle I agree, I guess, if they appeal the right for transgenders to use the women public restroom. I will not be using them unless someone is with me and I have a weapon. It is to crazy to take a change. I don’t have a problem with transsexual that no longer has a penis.If a transgender has a penis, he should use the men restroom. End of story. I don’t want to be in a public restroom out of state knowing a man is in the stool next to me. That is just wrong.

In response to:

I just wonder why the need for a discussion to use a bathroom. If a man has a PENIS he does not need to be in the bathroom with my wife and daughter I don’t care how he is dressed. Curmilus Butch Dancy II

Since HB2 was based on ignance then why not repeal it and call it what it is? That would be too much like right. Just my ignant opinion!
