NC NAACP PRESIDENT BARBER LEAVES IN JUNE TO JOIN NAT’L POOR PEOPLE’S CAMPAIGN – Wilmington Journal

The Watch Dog response: Several folk have asked me why was Dr. Barber stepping down was it because of health issues? I said oh no he is moving on to work on the national level. But what has tickled me the hell out of me the most is a couple of people white and black asked me was I going to seek that post. Really? I am glad to know such a man and was in Greensboro at the NC NAACP State Convention in October 2005 when myself and some others had to fight to get him elected. I have enjoyed all he has done over the years and just excited about what he is going to do on his new post. Get ready, get ready!

Though he insists that he’s “really not leaving,” Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, president of the State Conference of the North Carolina NAACP, says he will be “transitioning” from the state presidency next month to join a national “poor people’s” campaign to address issues of poverty and social inequality.

“I’m not going to run for another term [as president ] of the North Carolina NAACP, and I will step down in June,” the civil rights leader said Wednesday during a teleconference.

Maintaining that the NC NAACP is “…strong in our legal victories; strong in our organizational structure; strong financially and strong in the clarity of agenda…,” the civil rights leader expressed confidence that the next state president, coming from among the organization’s four vice presidents, will be up to the task.

Barber has been president of the North Carolina chapter, the largest in the South, since 2005. He led the once troubled conference into national prominence with weekly Moral Monday demonstrations at the North Carolina state legislature since 2013, and challenging the state on controversial cases of alleged racial injustice.

Really? Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II Inflammatory Remarks In Response To Gov. Pat McCrory Response to Voter ID

Damn the newsman said it is being said that Rev. Dr. William Barber II is using inflammatory remarks as it relates to Gov. Pat McCrory response to the Voter Id that was struck down by a 3 member panel of judges 2 white and 1 black. Said Dr. Barber was doing it for attention.

Well I was there when we got him elected in 2005 as the NC State NAACP President. He has been getting attention since that time so it ain’t like he just woke up a couple of days ago.

Folk continue to try to paint a picture of strong black men who ain’t afraid to speak Truth to Power!

"LOW TURNOUT?" YOU BE THE JUDGE! HKONJ, FEBRUARY 14, 2015 CUP OVERFLOWING WITH LOVE, UNITY, DIVERSITY, DIRECTION, AND HOPE – DOWNTOWN RALEIGH by Minister Curtis Everette Gatewood

Curtis Everette Gatewood

Certain media outlets had predetermined, how they would report this year’s turnout for the Moral March on Raleigh, and HKonJ People’s Assembly in an effort to peel off momentum and downplay the rising tide of a new generation seeking justice. They knew last year’s effort of an estimated more than 80,000 could not possibly be repeated, therefore, many media outlets had already decided, if this year’s rally had 79,999,we are going to say, “This year, turnout was low!” I’m shaking my head.

Everyone who is honest, present, and not trying to deceive others, is shocked at how similar this year’s crowd was even as we never expected to have as many as last year. Because, last year was the same year Governor McCrory was elected and came into office joined at the hip of tea-party-funder Art Pope, while other Tea-Party extremists hijacked and took over the NC General assembly and began immediately legislatively assaulting children, African Americans, Hispanics, Women, LGBT, Labor, environment, Educators/education, those in need of Obamacare, those in need of unemployment benefits, poor Whites, and others who were not in the club of greed with those such as NC Civitas, ALEC, AFP, and other rich White male cliques.

In spite of those who would like to get us caught up into the numbers game, this year’s march, may have again outnumbered Selma’s final Edmund Pettus Bridge crossing (an estimated 25,000) in 1965 which had held the record for the largest civil rights mobilization in the South until, HKonJ8 – 2014, and now HKonJ9 – 2015 (the two most recent HKonJ People’s Assembly gatherings downtown Raleigh)! This year’s HKonJ turnout still “turned out” more than we have ever seen at any Tea Party rally, especially when considering this rally was not a “national” rally, but was indigenously-led by Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II and other great state-grown leaders within ONE state – North Carolina. This year’s HKonJ turnout still produced more diversity (young, old, Black, White, Brown, Yellow, etc.) than any other social justice demonstration of our generation.

So let’s not get caught up into the numbers game; let’s not let them keep moving the goal post. WE HAVE PROVEN WE ARE BEST POSITIONED TO REPRESENT THE BEST INTERESTS AND BEST HOPES OF THE WHOLE BODY OF NORTH CAROLINIANS – “WE THE PEOPLE.” THIS IS WHY, NO MATTER WHAT THEY SAY; NOT MATTER WHAT GAMES THEY PLAY – WE ARE GOING “FORWARD TOGETHER – NOT ONE STEP BACK!” FORWARD TODAY, FORWARD TOMORROW; FORWARD FOREVER!

Thank you for allowing God to use you to show up and show out! Thank you for letting God use you to show North Carolina and show the world what the true faces of LOVE, UNITY, TRUTH, JUSTICE, and DEMOCRACY – ENOUGH LIES AND HYPOCRISY!

WE ARE WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW – LOVE SWEET LOVE! LOVE FOR THE LEAST; LOVE FOR THE LESS; LOVE FOR THE OPPRESSED!

CONGRATULATIONS TO REV. DR. WILLIAM J. BARBER, II, AND THE FORWARD TOGETHER MORAL MOVEMENT, WHICH INCLUDES YOU AND THE MIGHTY HKONJ COALITION!!!
