ICYMI: Black Lives Matter???
If you cut one clerks hours due to budgetarty constraints, then you don't hire another full time clerk, you don't go to MML Conferences, you don't hire other part time employees and you don't spend thousands on security cameras when the police are right across the hall. If you don't have money to give the clerk with the most seniority all of her hours, then you shouldn't have money in the budget to hire someone else; especially someone that was allegedly terminated for insubordination. When two out of three department heads, who happens to be white, gets everything they request while the one black department head is constantly denied request after request, it seems like a pattern to me. As I stated earlier, thiese moves and alliances aren't all about racism; a lot of these back room deals are about placism. Winston, C.Rogers and Dukes are not concerned about their communities; they're more concerned with their hidden agendas.
When I was hauled into court, it looked like a Lumberton board meeting. Lumberton's city hall was essentially shut down in an attempt to shut me and my blog down. Jay McGraw was the lone white witness. Also in attendance was Ben Winston, Tommy Dukes and Bobby Gibson. Really? Why was Gibson there? Why didn't they subpoena Timothy Johnson so he could take the stand? Cora Rogers was on her way to testify but she was on CP time...as usual. That's why I say it's about placism. Here's all these grown ass men hiding behind the skirt of a white woman who's slip is showing. We can hold Winston and C.Rogers accountable because they were voted into office. Tommy Dukes didn't have anyone running against him so he didn't make any promises and his vote/support is given to the highest bidder. Sadly, Ward 4 haven't been represented since Terry Cannaday left office. That's pretty much what was said. I'm not sticking my head in the sand and I'm not naive. Ben Winston, Tommy Dukes and Cora Rogers are sellouts for sale and it's time for us to let them know, We Ain't Buying!
