The Media Did A Hell Of A Mess With The SouthWest Edgecombe Graduation Diploma Being Withheld Coverage

I am amazed how the media made folk look ignant as it relates to the SouthWest Edgecombe diploma being withheld. I am talking about folk that ought to know better even some former educators who are stuck on the principal withholding the diploma.

I posted the facts out there as presented to me on my blog which automatically goes to my Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts. I have come to the conclusions that some folk don’t want to know the truth because if they did they would read my stuff in death. Some just read the topic and don’t read the whole thing so they can get the facts. But because it don’t require much to look at the TV, they take that couple of seconds and run with it. Sad!

I have even had some folk to ask me what happened at events that I recorded for free, took the time to upload the entirely event on YouTube so they can watch it but they want me to tell them. And then when I tell them, they act like they were there and begin to know more about the issue than I do. Just ignant!

It is sad when folk that ought to know better do not research stuff to make sure they get the facts but no they join in with the one-sided story being told. How in the hell do black folk do that when they have been lied on over the years?

In Edgecombe County Tarboro the county seat only has 2 local newspapers but they only are published one time a week. You have to purchase them and you only get a potion of what happened. Those that really want the whole story and the truth they go to my page for free. I run into folk all the time that tell me when they want to know what is going on they go to my page. Maybe I need to start charging to read my trues and those who want half trues will support my work.

I hope folk will look at the media in a different way in the future. Know that when they are only telling one side of the story that something is wrong with that photo.

My challenge to folk is check out what is going on so that when you talk to others you will be informed.

At a time when children are lacking when it comes to parenting, some children are lost and roaming without any disciplining folk ought to know better are joining in and saying it is okay for a child to disrespect authority but it is not okay for an adult in authority to discipline a child. Damn something is wrong with that photo.

When The Media Treats White Suspects And Killers Better Than Black Victims – HuffPosts

On the afternoon of Aug. 9, a police officer fatally shot an unarmed, black teenager, Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Missouri. Details remain in dispute. Eyewitnesses have said that Brown was compliant with police and was shot while he had his hands up. Police maintain that the 18-year-old had assaulted an officer and was reaching for the officer’s gun. One thing clear, however, is that Brown’s death follows a disturbingly common trend of black men being killed, often while unarmed and at the hands of police officers, security guards and vigilantes.  (Source: Read more)

Rocky Mount NC – We Play Into The Local Media While They Use Us

Why do you allow the local media to use our community as if they are concerned, but look at the events and things they attend and publicize.

I am just going back to the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday breakfast. It was some editorials written because some white folks especially the Nash County Republican Party chair who said they had a problem with the speaker an intelligent strong black female Dr. Julianne Malveaux because they didn’t like what she stand for. They want to pick and choose who speak to us and they want a Safe Negro. Not! WHIG-TV recorded it because it was controversial.

On this past Sunday Dr. William J. Barber II President NC NAACP/National Board of Directors spoke at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Candlelight Ceremony and where was WHIG-TV? Oh they knew he was going to tell the truth and wake some folks up. WHIG-TV don’t want the truth to be made known because they know that Dr. Barber is going to tell it everytime he come to town. I bet you they have been on The DCN TV and looked at my video.

Oh they were at the Prayer Vigil held on yesterday for the shootings because that is about black folks in the negative but also I question would they had been there if it had been at another church? This is about black on black crime so they will publicize that.

I can’t leave out Fighting Crime and Cleaning Up Rocky Mount that post about the crime in Rocky Mount and other that comes through on the scanner. Just like WHIG-TV they have many blacks following them on Facebook but they both are trying to discredit Mayor Pro-tem Andre Knight simply because he is a strong intelligent black man. The sad part that they have a petition and want black folks to sign it.

Folks ya’ll better wake the hell up because they are on a mission and you don’t need to play into their hands. Matter of fact you need to post on their facebook pages that you don’t appreciate how they are using the black community as if they are concerned. Fighting Crime and Cleaning Up Rocky Mount had the audacity to block me from posting on their page because they couldn’t handle the truth as I made comments on their page. I can still read their page but just can’t post. But that ain’t a problem for me because it don’t take away from my blog.
