I love it when folk say now that the election is over all of the candidates need to work together. Really?
So how in the hell do you trust your opposition when they chose to run against you? And then when they lose they say ignant ass mess and other folk ignore that and say ya’ll need to work together.
Hell you didn’t work with you before the election, they ran against you and then now you suppose to work with them. Work with them how and on what? You can be ignant to the facts if you want to.
How in the hell are you going to say the best candidate don’t always win when you don’t share why your candidate is the best candidate?
I am so sick of blanket ass statements especially from folk who ain’t even into politics in real-time.
You may be more educated than I but when it comes to politics I will challenge yo ass any day any time.
Now Run & Tell That!
If you need a title to fight for people and issues in order to feel as if you are making a difference, you might need to evaluate why you are even attempting to fight for people or seek position….. Antonio Lawrence
The Watch Dog response: Ab so lute ly! This is a very powerful statement. Some folk say they have so much to offer but when they lose they go back into hiding. If they got the answers why they don’t attend the meetings and offer their expertise?
Oh but they got to have a title to help make things better.
I fight too damn hard for folk putting my life on the line and spending time from my family while folk don’t want to do what is right. If I show up I am going to hold you accountable so when I appear and always with my weapons my video camera and photo camera along with my camera on my phone, you better be on your best behavior. But most of all you better know what the hell you are doing. Expect me to be at your meetings then I expect you to know what the hell you are doing and not waste my damn time. No more because I am going to show you how ignant I can be because you haven’t seen that side as of yet.
Edgecombe/Nash County FOLK better worry about the ass kissing on the local where it begin and goes up. I been at the table, where were you? I seen the leaders who play both sides but you only know the side you see or hear about outside of the meetings. I have been calling out black, brown, white and other since the late 80s. I been in meetings sometime being the only person from the community speaking up for other folk. I been at the table with folk taking money from the good Ole boys to keep us right where we are.
This year I have no limits gonna take it to a new level so if folk don’t want to read what I say, need to hit delete today. Gonna give it to you as a grown ass man. I have invested too much time and resources which includes finances to allow folk to say mess that don’t make sense to me, I repeat to me.
If you gonna come out politically then state your opinion based on the facts.
The autistic author Sparrow R. Jones said it well:
I am not mad at you that Clinton lost. I am unconcerned that we have different politics. And I don’t think less of you because you vote one way and I vote another. No… I think less of you because you watched an adult mock a disabled person in front of a crowd and still supported him. I think less of you because you saw a man spouting clear racism and backed him. I think less of you because you listened to him advocate for war crimes, and still thought he should run this country. I think less of you because you watched him equate a woman’s worth to her appearance and got on board. It isn’t your politics that I find repulsive. It is your personal willingness to support racism, sexism, and cruelty. You sided with a bully when it mattered and that is something I will never forget. So, no… you and I won’t be “coming together” to move forward or whatever. Trump disgusts me, but it is the fact that he doesn’t disgust you that will stick with me long after this election.
So this is what folk are mad with Steve Harvey about, “Steve Harvey pays a visit to President-elect Donald Trump at Trump Tower.” Well he is a comedian and he meet with and have folk to call in to his morning show.
What I read is after he met with them he felt that they were sincere. Well that is his opinion. He may be wrong and he may be right. All I know is I can’t do anything but wait and see what happens.
My question is if you had a chance to meet with elected officials be it one you like or don’t like to voice your opinion about your community …would you meet with them
After meeting with them would you report back how you really felt after speaking with them or would you just report that you just don’t want to have anything to do with them even if they sounded sincere?
All I know is this is a wait and see moment for me because I can’t keep Trump and whomever he appoints out of the White House.
I just hope all of these folk who are mad with Steve Harvey because he met with Trump em that these folk are actually engaged in local politics and at the state level where one can really affect change,
