Colts Statement On National Anthem Demonstration

Today our football team made a statement on behalf of the Black communities in our state of Indiana; but also on behalf of all Black communities from where our players and coaches call home. Our intent is to bring attention to the issue of systemic racism and the injustice inherit therein. We also wanted to demonstrate a symbolic gesture of how we believe meaningful change happens.

TO BE CLEAR – we were not protesting the flag, the anthem, or the men and women who wear the uniform. The timing of this action is meant to highlight that the presence, power, and oppression of racism remains inconsistent with the unity and freedoms of what it means to be an American.

Our Black communities feel the weight of this issue and they are hurting. Our statement today and going forward expresses that we will not merely speak out against racism, but we will demonstrate our convictions with consistent action to support and uplift our Black communities.

Our statement included the two-fold symbolic gesture of stepping forward and kneeling: (Read more)

Deshaun Watson is ready to speak out against racism in the NFL

Deshaun Watson has found his voice and is using it to speak out against racism in the NFL. The Houston Texans quarterback says he was conditioned to believe he wasn’t smart enough and lacked the education needed to speak out.

According to a recent interview with ESPN, the football player gets vulnerable and opens up about how he thinks the world perceives him as a Black quarterback.

“To keep it real with you, I feel like whenever a Black quarterback speaks up, the outside world sometimes doesn’t think they’re educated enough to know what’s going on. So in reality, they’re like, ‘Hey, y’all Black quarterbacks — shut up. Y’all don’t know what y’all talking about.’ “

The 24-year-old says he feels the pressure that comes with being the head of a team. Waston says especially as a Black quarterback he is aware that folks are judging his every move, from what he wears to how he speaks. He goes on to say his insecurities stem from the racism he experienced as a child growing up in Georgia and how these issues shaped his world view.

“But the way I grew up, and the way I saw it, it was kind of normal. So as a young boy, it was kind of like, ‘I guess this is the way it should be.’ And this is the way it has been for a long time.” (Read more)

LUCAMA — In a packed meeting room, three Lucama residents called for Commissioner David Johnson to step aside over allegations that the incumbent has used racial slurs when referring to town employees and the town’s first African American commissioner.

Gladys Martinez, Helen Torres and Mariann Crabtree called for the commissioner to step down from his position on Monday.

Martinez did not mince words, pointedly repeating the offensive language Johnson’s been accused of using, including the N-word.

“I am going to say it like it is, like it was said,” Martinez said. “If I would have known it at the last meeting, I would have addressed it at that time. I want you to know that I have got just as many white friends as I do African American and we talk straight to each other and it broke their heart too.”

“I could not believe that it was going on in my town. Someone in another town came up and asked me what is going on in Lucama, that one commissioner is calling Commissioner Uzzell and the other African American workers the N-word,” Martinez said, referring to Commissioner Patricia Uzzell, the first African American to sit on the board.

In Response To Wayne Boyette Post Galatians 3:28 KJV On His Page

Wayne Boyette I am not questioning the scripture.

Scriptures can be interpreted according to how one want to use it. So since you are direct in your opinion, I repeat your opinion this is how I receive it.

You say, “Stop trying to divide us.”

When have we truly been united? How can we unite when Racist White Folk not all White Folk want to hold on to lies when the Confederate Monuments were erected during a certain time for a certain reason. Inferiority!

You say, “Stop promoting labels and wearing labels.”

When have you ever spoke out against Confederate symbols flags, monuments and whatever?

Oh but now that that Black Lives Matter was birthed several years ago now labels are a problem. I love it when folk compare Confederate symbols to Black Lives Matter, Dr. Martin Luther King and political figures like Rep. John Lewis not to mention the Racist years that President Obama received while in the White House.

You say, “Stop using errors of the past to justify your own errors of the present.”

Wow! I guess that is for folk who are seeking removal of Confederate Monuments across the nation. And I guess those who want them removed are trying to justify their own errors of the present. Well talk to be me because I don’t fit that category. I am and has been a working and law abiding citizens nearly all of my 57 years. Been working since I was 5 years old and have been on my present job for 33 years.

It is my opinion that you found the galls to write this since the removable of the Confederate Monument on the Tarboro Town Common but also going back to the Monument that was removed in Rocky Mount, across the state and nation.

It is my opinion you have an issue with the Black Lives Matter Movement. However what you need to recognize and understand that there is a difference in the Black Lives Movement and the Black Lives Matter Organization. I am a part of the Black Lives Matter Movement and have been all of my adult life when I became actively engaged in Community and Political Activism. Now if it was a local Black Lives Matter Organization in the area, I might would join if it is a make up of folk who I want to be associated with.

Because of your political status in which I have been following, I am seriously following you now because I am concerned about what you said, your opinion. I am responding to what you said, I repeat I am responding to what you said. I asked for clarity and you said I was a smart man so we will let my response determine if I am smart or just ignant to what you said.

And for the record for anyone who say I have not said anything about Confederate Symbols over the years then obviously they don’t know me, ain’t been paying attention and/or just don’t give a d. It is documented in the news, at governmental meetings, my videos many on YouTube and in my Bio that can be found in the following link.

https://curmilus.wordpress.com/bio/

I am for Justice no matter who it is for or against.

I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest!

You know me because you have been reading my writings for years.

Thanking your patience my friend as a fellow co-worker so graciously posted.

Feedback From A Few Others

That is the route they take. They JUST CANNOT ADMIIT THE S&$; their fathers & grandfathers did. If they do admit it They know It will show the world how evil they, the present generation can be. Look at Jeffery Epstein and the other TV Mogul for example. Just like the councilman past Monday. Sounding like Rodney King

Oh you jammed him and others that tried to response. One point that I make to them Is each year they have a MLK service it flip flop each year to a black or white church. When at white church you may have 10 whites at their own church. Where was he, Ask him have he attended one or the service when it was held it was done for years maybe still do

I can tell them some stuff I have been harboring for years. Even some black folks. I’m ready.

Have you ever heard how white people use the Bible to keep black people under submission and control. Call me slow but I finally understand what is meant by that. The biggest rednecks & racist white people claim to be Christians & want to quote the Bible to us but hate us all the while.

Not surprised! They love to use the Bible to support what they want to do! Or want done!

Hey Curmilus. I quote this scripture about once a day, usually when I’m talking to recalcitrant, racist white folks. To me, it means that anyone calling himself a “Christian” should see other Christians no differently than he sees himself. Moreover, there should be no need for a WHITE church or a BLACK church or a BAPTIST church or a METHODIST church … and so on. That’s because we are ONE, once we’ve been transformed by the blood. HOWEVER, as you know, the biblical reality undermines the justification for slavery, Jim Crow, sexism and interdenominational squabbles.

This got to be a joke, I started laughing before the first sentence

Hey Sir, the scripture is talking about oneness in the body of Christ. The issue I think is certainly not with the scripture, but the intent of the use of the scripture to justify unity when the heart of the one who is using the text or scripture is not Christ Like. Just my take.

This passage of Scripture is frequently used to promote the unity of the gospel and the “newness in Christ” that all creation has access to. Race -Class-Gender is how we divide ourselves then and now! These are what segregate us in society and the church. If Jesus is truly your Lord – then you wouldn’t have anything to do with promoting these barriers and be doing EVERYTHING to tear down these tools of oppression and discrimination. Any Christian not working to fight for social justice, gender equality, pay equity, closing the wealth gap AINT Christian , and is not a follower of Christ- in my humble opinion.

This passage , To me clearly sets forth the agenda for the modern day church. Our church ministries should not be confined to 2 to 3 hours on Sundays. Every true Christian every true follower of Jesus Christ is in the streets working toward policy and doing everything they can to promote equality and equal access and opportunities for all humankind regardless of their gender regardless of their race and regardless of their socioeconomic status.

Hey Sir! In reading his post both scripture and that below it, I know what he’s saying and it’s nothing wrong it. What is wrong is the wrong interpretations of some of the comments, which makes his post look like he’s talking side ways. I agree with it because when reading scripture, God gives revelation of the scripture’s context. What he posted is correct Biblically but the comments are somewhat distorted, wrong, racial and uncalled for. Just sharing what you asked of me. Wayne’s post is scripture and scripture is not to be debated. When a person don’t understand scripture, it’s best to ask God for revelation or otherwise it can get us in wrong standing with God. God’s Word is not debatable!!!

He explained the scripture meaning.

I respect your wanting clarity from him. His post is all good. Believe me!

For example, the word “slave ” in the Bible means “servant.” Some may interpret it otherwise without actually understanding Biblical terms.

The division part mean “mankind” in general. No specific person

The scripture speaks to our oneness in Christ. It’s true. His intent is designed to “pacify and hold unaccountable” the dealings of whites towards blacks. Real repentance demands change. Periodt. He ain’t slick.

    Deborah Dew-Jordan Exactly! And if anyone doesn’t believe the 66 books then they will leave it! We cannot and should not justify the intent of others based on opinions but justify the truth as presented. We are all one in Christ Jesus and should not offend our brothers and sisters. Errors of the present covers a lot of territory and is why the spirit of Love must abide in our hearts.

But I don’t think that means we shouldn’t work toward social justice
    Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause. Isaiah 1:17

    Curmilus Butch Dancy II Wayne Boyette Nope! Not questioning the scripture but your comment.
    Hard to be Christ like and havi G to deal with those whom are not and those whom pretend to be.

    I’ll Wait!

    Wayne Boyette You don’t need me to provide answers. You are a smart man and you know the answers of your own heart. That is what matters to our God.

  • Curmilus Butch Dancy II

    Curmilus Butch Dancy II Wayne Boyette OK so I will respond in what I think then. I don’t like doing that but since you want to be difficult because your comments are not in the Bible my friend.

  • Wayne Boyette

    Wayne Boyette Carry on, Butch. The Bible also tells us not to judge the hearts of others. Be Christ-like and do what your heart and conscience dictate. We will each answer one day for our own sins, not the sins of others.

    Platitudes are fine but research is even better.

  • Glenn Silver

    Glenn Silver The same Bible you are using to call for uniting us also calls for dividing us – into slaves and masters – and used that slave and master division to justify the pains of the past that cascade down into the present. See Ephesians 6:5-6, pasted below:
    “Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart.”

  • Curmilus Butch Dancy II

    Curmilus Butch Dancy II Debbie Batts Wow! Now you gone tell me how to see someone. Not that is that slavery mentality.
    Nope nothing can be said or done to embarass me.
    Why are you trying to speak for him? I addressed him not you and you came for me. Let’s not go there.
    I get along with everybody so that don’t apply to me. Now folk getting along with me I have no control over that. That is a they problem.
    Wow! How did the Democratic Party come into this? Now don’t go there because I am a grown a… man and I pick and choose what party I want to be affiliated with. I don’t allow anyone to use me.
    No I can’t work with you with that mindset because I have not questioned your party affiliations and don’t care but what you ain’t fitting ready to do is to choose for me.
    You need to go talk to the folk you are referring to because you are talking to me at the moment and I have not destroyed anybody property nor killed anybody.
    You don’t lost your mind even more so when you was my co-worker because I am not into racial mess as you put it. I challenge Ignant Racist White Folk and Ignant Safe Negro Black Folk. I challenge all folk so I ain’t the one.
    I am not into corruptness so again go talk to those you speak of but while you want talk about Black Folk and Democrats you better look at your own Folk because they are documented dating back over 400 years of slavery and corruptness.
    The last time I checked Wayne was a Democrat but we ain’t going there.
    Wow! Sin is a sin so let’s not go there because I don’t have amnesia.
    Finally warning let’s not go there don’t come for me.
    I am going to remind you once again I didn’t come here to respond to you actually you came in late in the game. I am here to respond to the author of this post so let’s end our discussion because I ain’t the one because I know a whole lot more than what some folk think I know. And I hate having conversations with some folk because they get mad just because they came for me and my come back oh they can’t handle it.

    Debbie Batts Curmilus Butch Dancy II well said Butch! Well said! You just proved what we all know! Rest easy my brother! When we get to Heaven, God will only see blood! We all bleed the same!

    Curmilus Butch Dancy II Debbie Batts Who are we?
    And what did I prove?
    I been me and you been mad! You know me and I know you.
    So you need someone to validate your kind of thinking because tht is the difference between you and I, I don’t need to speak in the We!
    God will only see blood? Really? Some folk got some stuff they have got to pay for.
    We bleed the same. Really! Been hearing that over the years but that is a matter of opinion as well especially for me. But I ain’t into the sayings but like dealing with the fact of the matter especially when it get personal. And again folk ain’t ready because they don’t have anything on me but they can’t say that about me.

  • Curmilus Butch Dancy II

    Curmilus Butch Dancy II Wayne Boyette but I asked you to respond and you didn’t. I told you I was going to respond from my opinion and I don’t like doing that.
    I like to get other folk opinion on issues before I give mines so I can make sure my opinion do not create the narrative. Wow! The responses I have received help me to give my opinion.
    You say, “I have posted previously that if the statue offends people that I know and respect then it should not be in the public square, but moved to an appropriate location on private or non-profit land where those who wish to see may do so and those who do not wish to see it do not have to.”
    I don’t have to know folk because I know for myself what the statue does for Black folk and some White Folk that know it offends folk.
    It would have been great to see your response in the comments on the Tarboro 27886 page over the weekend leading up to the Tarboro Town Council meeting on Monday. Wow those comments would have been powerful there but more powerful during the Public Comments during the meeting. But it is easy to voice ones opinion now that the vote is over.
    You know where I stand with challenging the Democratic Party because you know I hold Democrats accountable for their actions be they Black, Brown, White and/or Other.
    I deal in character because I challenge folk on the facts as presented and not just my opinion alone.
    You been reading my stuff and you know I have challenged more Black Folk than Whites and Other because you read my social media sites. You have been in Democratic Party meetings with me.
    I label folk by their character and that is why I say Ignant Racist White Folk because I am not talking about all White Folk. That is why I say Ignant Safe Negro Black Folk because I am not talking about all Black Folk.

  • Tricia SheppardActive Now

    Tricia Sheppard We have all been labeled whether we want to accept that fact or not. The statues and many other prejudices in Tarboro have offended me but I was raised by my remarkable family that taught me love, resilence and faith. I was not born a slave but I know what the servers quarters look like. Visit the Fountain homes on Panola Street. So before you use the bible to tell us who have lived this how to feel. We feel just like you and 45. Time to speak our truth and let God truly be the judge. I’m more than welcome for you to inbox me and contact me outside of this post. It happened right in my eyes while I was growing up. Smh My Grandmother worked it for over 50 years. The Fountains were not bad but the company they kept was worse. I’m 46 and have stories to tell.

    Raleigh NC – ‘Keep this area upscale’ warns letter to interracial Raleigh family

    imageClick On Photo To Watch Video
    Residents of a north Raleigh neighborhood expressed outrage Monday after learning that a family received an unsigned letter last week warning them against posting any Black Lives Matter signs in their yard.

    “[P]lease remember that the rest of us live in an upscale neighborhood and have spent the extra money to stay out of mixed neighborhoods and/or the ghetto,” the letter states. “No one wants trouble or any circumstance arising which could turn our neighborhood into a ‘semi-ghetto.'”

    “I couldn’t believe that someone in my neighborhood – that close to me – would have written something so mean,” said Marianna Morin, a neighbor of an interracial couple in the Wakefield Plantation community.

    “I was horrified, appalled, disappointed, sad,” said Kate Pirrung, another neighbor and friend of the family that received the letter. (Read more)

    Racism Is It Really About Culture Alone?

    I know culture plays a major role in racism however I strongly feel that it is more about the Fear of The Shift!

    The culture of White Supremacy is deeply rooted in America but Black Folk in high places is a growing thing. Look at many of these places where the racism is being uncovered, many of these racist actions are coming from folk who are not of color but work under those of color.

    It has been okay that Caucasians held all the top positions in politics and in the workplace. But today Black folk are moving on up! This is a problem because some folk do not want to be told what to do by Blacks in authority.

    Black Lives Matter is a problem for some but the real problem is the Fear of The Shift!

    For the sake of everyone, why does everything have to be about RACISM? It is the biggest word used nowadays and I’m so damn tired of hearing it.
    Racism comes in all different phases and agendas, such as, you could be hate UNC, NC State, Duke, or you could be racist against a Chevrolet or Ford.
    That is some ignant B.S. right there and this dude is the Tar River Times a Fake Newspaper out of Tarboro NC.
    Now you have these TV stations and all this mess with taking cartoons off the TV that have been around for two decades just because the characters are white, and now changing the Simpsons and using black cartoon characters.
    Just because it been around for two decades don’t change the fact mess is racist it just means it has been racist for two decades. I never been into cartoons anyway so I can’t relate to them.
    Get out of here. The darn characters on the show for 20* years have been damn yellow, not white.
    Wow! So who are yellow folk?
    What the hell is this damn world coming to?
    This world is coming to some damn senses unlike you. This is the season and a change have come and will continue to come.
    When the time is right,and I have all the data and science as NC’s governor says daily, I am going to post some FBI stats that will blow a whole lot of you all’s minds….
    Bring your fake ass news on because I am used to it. I will be ready to challenge your ignant ass mess like I have done over the years.
    Believe me….Especially the law enforcement officials who shoot and kill the opposite race….
    Bring it on your fake ass newspaper.

    And I’ll say this just as simple as I can….if you don’t like this post bye bye It’s not a racist post by NO MEANS….Just my opinion and thoughts….
    I love your ignant ass post and can’t wait for you to post whatever the hell you claim to post later. Oh you are ab so damn lute ly correct just your ignant opinions and ignant thoughts.

    I’ll Wait!

    Wilmington Police Dept. terminates 3 veteran officers for ‘hate-filled speech’ caught on patrol car video

    Winston-Salem, North Carolina — Three members of the Wilmington, North Carolina Police Department have been fired after being caught on video making racist and threatening comments. One said a civil war necessary to wipe black people off the map and he was ready.

    The department took the action Tuesday against Cpl. Jessie Moore and officers Kevin Piner and Brian Gilmore. Each was accused of violating standards of conduct, criticism and use of inappropriate jokes and slurs.

    After conferring with the City Council, Wilmington City Manager Sterling Cheatham cleared Police Chief Donny Williams to release the details.

    “When I first learned of these conversations, I was shocked, saddened and disgusted,” Williams said at a news conference on Wednesday. “There is no place for this behavior in our agency or our city and it will not be tolerated.”

    According to CBS Wilmington affiliate WWAY-TV, Williams made the announcement on his first official day as chief, calling the case “the most exceptional and difficult” one he’s encountered in his career.

    Police Department documents show that a sergeant was conducting a video audit as part of a monthly inspection and was reviewing footage from Piner’s car that had been classified as “accidental activation.” After the sergeant listened to the conversation and determined comments made by Piner and Moore were “extremely racist,” she contacted the department administrator for the camera system.

    Systemic racism remains alive across country

    The modern day lynching of George Floyd at the hands of four white police officers in Minneapolis, Minnesota was a painful reminded that racism is alive, well and flourishing in this country.

    Systemic racism is built into every level of this society. It infects the very structure of this society daily and manifests itself in the continuing inequalities in housing, education, employment, criminal justice, wealth and leadership positions. It is real and no matter the ignoring or denying it remains a constant.

    Systemic racism is embedded in this city’s past, recognizable in its present and will, in all likelihood, occupy a place in its future. It would be delusional to think otherwise.

    It is almost a given that people of color who challenge the system and speak out on words and actions that have a racist intent will be accused of “playing the race card.” It is also a given that the accusers are most likely to be white people who do not have the foggiest idea about what being a person of color in this country is like. It’s like telling someone you know the pain of a toothache if you have never had one. Seldom does the why of an issue perceived to be racist become the channel for constructive dialogue.

    Systemic racism is an ingredient found in everyday decisions made by people who may or may not see themselves as racist. Therefore, it behooves those of you who are quick to accuse people of color of playing the race card to take a long hard look in the mirror. How many race cards have you dealt, consciously or unconsciously? A card cannot be played if it has not been dealt.

    As the years have come and gone, old stereotypes that feed on systemic racism have continued. In spite of the fact that many major contributions to this country’s greatness have been made by people of color, we are still looked upon as being intellectually deficient. We are still marginalized and acts of violence inflicted upon us are often without consequence. Educational opportunities and access to health care remain disproportionate. Home and business mortgage applications continue to be marked in red as risky investments and criminal justice is still administered with an uneven hand.

    Somehow, in some way, these inequities continue to have an unrelenting choke hold on people of color. Will we ever overcome?
