Rocky Mount NC: Letter to the Editor: Candidate’s race should not be a factor in voting (Hell Yeah Race Matters)

There are a lot of important issues for all of us to think about and talk about during municipal elections.

The Political Agitator’s response: What are those important issues Mr. Attorney. I hate when folk throw out b.s. without providing what the facts.

Two things that are not important are the color of a voter’s skin and the color of the candidate’s skin.

The Political Agitator’s response: Speak for your damn self because color is the most important thing in the mayoral race where Special Cs began a movement to unseat the Andre Knight and Reuben Black well for years and now Richard Joyner. Your ass just mad because you ran against Andre Knight and lost and he is supporting Bronson Williams. If you were a real friend of Kevin Jones just maybe you should have convinced him to run for school board because in my opinion that is what he should have chosen to pursue. But that is just my ignant opinion.

It is perfectly acceptable for a white voter to vote for a white candidate or for a white voter to vote for a black candidate. It is perfectly acceptable for a black voter to vote for a black candidate or for a black voter to vote for a white candidate.

The Political Agitator’s response: Really! All that to say nothing.

To suggest that a black voter would vote for a white candidate for any other reason than the voter’s thoughtful evaluation of the positions and ideas of the candidate is an insult to the intelligence of that black voter.

The Political Agitator’s response: What is an insult is this ignant b.s. mess you have written.

I plan to vote for my good friend Kevin Jones for mayor and I’d invite people to join me in doing so.

The Political Agitator’s response: Wow! What color is Kevin Jones. I wonder are you voting for him just because he is Black. But you will never tell. Damn you didn’t say why you were voting for him. Ain’t that something. I guess because I ain’t a lawyer that I ain’t spose to have sense enough to not fall for your ignant mess here.

However, whoever you vote for I would ask you to do so based on ideas and with absolutely no consideration for the color of your skin or the color of the candidate’s skin.

The Political Agitator’s response: Oh but you can tell folk who to vote and not to base their ideas and consideration for the color of one’s skin or the color of the candidate’s skin. Really! Now that is too ignant! Hell just go vote for your man because those of us who are not ignant to the WSBS that is going on know that if the Special Cs are successful in getting the 2 Caucasians in office and then to unseat Andre Knight.
