Folk Who Think They Done Figured Something Out, Folk Who Are Keeping Us Right Where We Are

Really?

I love it when I read mess on Facebook when folk think they done figured something out but all they do is talk. Well damn when you gone do something? What public meetings can I go to and ask for the minutes to see what you have done in your city, town and wherever? Hell I have attended most meetings and if it is recorded in those meetings, hell I should have it recorded on video.

All of these pretty words on Social Media and no damn action equates to bullmanure.

Folk say mess and then they don’t want to be challenged. Hell I love a challenge because through the back and forth responding brings on an educational moment. Either you will look good or make yourself look like a damn fool.

Folk walking around here mad with folk because they ain’t scared to speak out and doing it with authority rather than being a Safe Negro. This is why we are in the damn shape we are in now. The Safe Negro don’t deal with real issues. I ain’t got time.

It is time for a change in some leadership positions. It is time for Safe Black Leadership to go home and get the hell out of the way.

In 2018 I ain’t gonna spend time with Safe Negroes who mean me no good. I am going to sacrifice going back to covering meetings on a regular because folk really don’t know what is going on around them. I will my followers informed.

I am trying to figure out how these outspoken Social Media folk sit talk about what they stand for but they allow their fellow brother and/or sister who are out fighting the good fight be they elected officials, community leaders, pastors and whomever get criticized and scorned when they know those who are trying to discredit them or just liars. When we allow the lies to be unchallenged then your silence is betrayal.

In 2018 if you have a problem with me please kindly UNFRIEND me on Social Media because if we are true friends then you will hold me accountable for my actions knowing that I am going to hold you accountable. If we are friends don’t post mess and don’t think I am not going to respond especially when I feel it is something that pertains to making Edgecombe County a better place to live, work and play. This has been my goal since the late 80’s so when I see some mess it pisses me off because I have worked too damn hard to make Edgecombe County a better place to live being actively engaged in Politics and Community Activism.

I don’t like to Unfriend folk but I will not tolerate you coming on my page with mess. You can challenge me but do it in trues and not assumptions and without facts because I ain’t got time.

I am taking all walks of my life differently in 2018 be it at home, on the job, in the church, in organizations and where ever because I am going to be about all I can be as I am on my way home.

So in my closing just a friendly reminder, I am for justice no matter who it is for or against. I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest. I am unbought and unbossed.

This Year I Held Back Some Things When Some Folk Came After Me But No More

As hard as it is to believe yes I held back some things when folk came after me and one case was the SouthWest Edgecombe Graduation Drama.

Yep I held back because in situations like that you learn where folk mindset is at and what I learned was folk don’t give a damn about the truth but about protecting friendships when I know they had no damn clue about what was going on. Some were mad because of personal experiences they said they had with the principal but you see I don’t give a damn about what kind of experience you may have with someone, that don’t make everything they do wrong. What that does is make folk feel some type of way about you.

I didn’t even know the principal like that and if I did it would not have made any difference. I am for justice no matter who it is for or against.

I did know the family involved and learned a hell of lot more during the drama because my resources and new resources that sent me information kept me point on.

I videoed the graduation and my video was being used across the nation. A video that I did and didn’t get paid to do it during the graduation nor during the times it was used by other media outlets.

Back to the graduation, my videos don’t lie. My resources didn’t lie. I knew what the hell I was talking about so what I did say I was point on and stood behind everything I said.

This is a warning to all folk who want to come after me in the future. I do my homework so when I say something I know what the hell I am talking about. So you will not attempt to discredit me and/or disrespect me. You can call me out on my wrong if you can prove what you are saying but no assumptions and other b.s. that does not make you right will be tolerated.

I didn’t Unfriend anyone because that is not what I do however I am in the Unfriending business now. But if you have a problem with me then go ahead and Unfriend me now and save me some time.

Now in my closing what you need to remember after reading this is, “I am for justice no matter who it is for or against! I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest!

Happy Thanksgiving! 

Folk if you don’t want to hear these truths, you need to block me now!

Folk if you don’t want to hear these truths, you need to block me now because I am sick and tired of being sick and tired of folk playing damn games when it comes to politics.

I have posted over the years that I will challenge anyone when it comes to Edgecombe County Politics but not limited to.

I have been out here since the early 90’s and I know who else have been out there.

I will not allow folk to mislead folk and to act like they done figured something out.

I don’t like to delete folk on Social Media but I have began and will continue. When you come on my page your ass better come correct. Stay on topic and respond according to the topic.

When I am on Social Media I am blogging, researching and etc. so I don’t have time to play games. If you want to respond to something I say, you can do so but don’t get ignant because you can’t get as ignant as I can because I am a professional.

Folk I Must Admit I Am Crazy!

I love me some black folk even the Ignant Safe Black Folk because they know not what they are doing when they do ignant mess. When you learn better you ought to do better.

What I ain’t going to do is support black mess. I know mess and don’t need anyone to define mess for me.

I can be your best friend or your worst nightmare.

Got a problem with effective black voices then you got a problem with me.

But I don’t want to leave room for you to twist this. I love me some white folk that have black folk best interest at heart. I got to love white folk because my great granddaddy was a white man so therefore if it had not been for him there would be no me.

Now Run & Tell That!

The SouthWest Edgecombe Graduation Mess Is Still A Mess As The Media Made A Mess So Maybe A Community Meeting Still Need To Be Called & All Media Outlets That Played A Role Be Invited

I am still mad as hell because the media has made a mess out of the SouthWest Edgecombe Graduation Mess. All the students of the graduation class of 2017 ought to be mad as hell also along with all of the staff at the school especially those whom have no issue with the principal. I have not talked to a staff member that has a problem with the principal but I have read a couple of parents who have talked negative about him and at least one has communicated to me their concerns. Well the issue at hand was/is about the graduation mess and has nothing to do with their beef with the principal. The graduation mess is and should be in a category by itself. Anyone who feel it is okay that a student can break 2 rules: not reading the approved speech and having an electronic device to read his own speech but it is not okay for the principal to discipline the student, then we got some damn serious issues with parenting and community leaders in all areas.

I was in a meeting on Thursday night June 30 and it is a damn shame that folk have been mislead by the student and parent involved along with a student supporter because the student says he was not allowed to write his own speech. It is so believable because the mess was on local and major new outlets (newspapers, tv & online media sources) all over the USA.

My video is the video that was/is being used and I asked them did they talk to the superintendent John Farrelly. They said yes so therefore I thought they would tell both sides of the story however they did not. When did the media stop giving both sides of the story or were they that naïve to just take the student’s side of the story instead of getting the whole story out?

Because the superintendent said he didn’t see anything wrong with the speech and that the principal was wrong for withholding the diploma it added more mess to the mess. It was not about whether the speech was good or bad, the speech that the student read was not approved. The student was not suppose to have an electronic device. Superintendent made the principal deliver diploma over the weekend putting the principal’s life in danger.

This is why I have said over and over again that the difference in me and other news outlets is that I video events, give my opinion based on the facts as presented and I share the entire video with my readers so that they can form their own opinion.

There are many posts about the graduation mess that I posted on my blog which automatically goes to my facebook, twitter and linkedin social media pages. I am totally shocked by a few folk that follow me on social media that have totally ignored the facts as I have presented them but all they have in their minds is the student was not allowed to read his speech and his diploma was withheld.

I have stated time and time again a community meeting need to be held to dispel rumors so that the correct information could get out instead of having mess floating around the community and right now it is a cloud over SouthWest Edgecombe because the media made a mess and the media need to go back and do a follow up on the mess to get the whole story out.

Read the following links but there are more and you will see why the SouthWest Edgecombe graduation was a mess.

The DCN Will Not Be Promoting Some Folk In The Future, You Will Have To Earn Your Way To Be Promoted

The DCN has promoted some folk over the years even ungrateful folk especially black folk. Going forward some folk will have to earn the right to get promoted on The DCN.

Over the past 2 weeks some folk but not limited to, have just been nasty while I was trying to educate them but they chose to take sides with mess and not going with the facts as presented after I have shared my video and photos over the years. I have been sitting back laughing at how some elected officials, pastors, church folk, organizations and black men who ought to be standing for something have been silent. Silence can be betrayal.

Folk don’t understand why the young folk are doing what they do. They see the folk I mentioned above playing it safe or choosing mess without any regards for dealing with the trues.

I am going to just wait and see how many folk that was made to look ignant publicly will ask for a public apology for being used publicly.

I am going to see how many folk are going to apologize.

Now folk ought to see that the work I do reporting local news but not limited is so important. Other media outlets do not give you the whole story like I do. But the sad part is I do what I do at my own expense and then some folk think I owe them something. Right now there are a bunch of folk that owe me something. (Somebody didn’t get that!)

I ain’t mad with nobody just going to change the way I do things. I can do that!
