Politics is Real So You Can Get Involved or Get Left Behind!
Thank you for visiting The DCN as I inform you especially black folks about what is really going on around us and who the real leaders are in my opinion. You see I attend many meetings across the county and abroad. I capture the events on video and/or audio so that we can tell our own story. Other folks can’t tell our story like we can. Again this is my opinion so do your homework as I do and/or trust in me and others who are active until we lead you wrong.
So what do I mean by: (A grassroots effective community activist who has been very, very active in politics since the early 90’s. I have served on the Edgecombe County Democratic Party Executive Committee for several years before resigning due to the ignance of black folks. I hold black, brown and white elected officials and community leaders accountable for their actions. Because I have not been afraid to talk about race relations in Edgecombe County, the State of North Carolina and across the nation, I have been labeled a racist, militant and other choice words.)
I say ignance of black folks because when we have the power we do not use it. I remember when we used to be in the minority in the Edgecombe County Democratic Party and we had to take what the majority did to us. Now we are in the majority and what do we do? We will sell our souls for some crumbs to help get certain white folks elected instead of working together to elect good black folks in office especially in minority districts. Nope I didn’t include white folks because for me it is not all about them but about what we can do when we work together. My goal has always been to get us as a black people to work together. When we work together good white folks will work with us.
I am quite sure some black folks get offended when they read my comments however that is my intent. This is why I say certain things to make people mad and that way I will make them think. When people get mad they do something.
Politics do not have to be dirty and that is what I have been preaching since the early 90’s when I became a community activist. I have challenged black, brown, white and other politicians over the years and I will continue to do so. When we hold them accountable they do a better job of serving the whole community and not looking out for themselves or their friends.
Politics is real and it is not going anywhere so you can get involved or get left behind.
