The reason why I cross post here is because The DCN News Blog has its own brand.
Over at The DCN News Blog I post articles and I state my opinions about the article if I have one. The thing I like most is that others can post a comment and do not have to use their names. Until recently I had no control of those leaving comments but now I have to approve them.
I have been told by many over the years that they like my brand because they love my comments but most of all that I do my homework. You see locally I attend many meetings and I video them instead of taking notes. This comes in very handy because I have given a copy of the DVD's to entities because they have needed it for reference and sometimes I have them shown on the local cable tv station. I also know many of the legislators across the state and I have numerous resources not only statewide but nationwide.
In the 2 years that I was the publicity chair for the North Carolina NAACP State Conference of Branches I picked up more resources not only locally but nationwide. The resources range from political and community leaders, media and other.
I have received one private message about my cross posting here and after I explained to the person why I do it, they understood where I was coming from and admitted they do it sometimes for the same reasons I mentioned.
I see one of my series of articles that originated in The Wilmington Journal, "Wilmington NC - TRUTH ABOUT SEN. BOSEMAN AND THE N-WORD" has sparked some folks to question my reasoning for posting it here.
Well damn folks post all kinds of things here and so it seems that these folks picked me out to be picked on. Well I have no problem with being picked on but just come correct when you do so because I don't take bull manure lightly.
I have a feeling that some have a problem with me because I am black and The Wilmington Journal is an historical black newspaper. We both report news about the black community as well as the white community so if some feel we are racist then so be it. I know a couple of the folks from The Wilmington Journal and from Wilmington so therefore I have ties there.
I spent 3 days in Wilmington last year in October attending the NC NAACP State Conference of Branches Convention.
If at anytime folks want to comment on something I post I have no problem but the problem will come if you make the post about me trying to figure out why I posted something. If I have an opinion about a post I will say it because I have no problem with saying what I mean and meaning what I say.
So in my closing, for those who have a problem with my cross posting here or me personally, I do it because of the information that is posted on my blog such as my comments and others comments. If you have a problem with me you have options and that is don't read my stuff caus I going to report the news that is of interest to me and I try to post news that I feel is of interest to some others. Nope didn't say to everyone.
I have no problem with "speaking truth to power."
I want to leave this with you, "I have no permanent friends, no permanent enemies only permanent interest." And, "I love you and it ain't a damn thing you can do about" and that is the truth. So therefore "I have the power."
Note: I forgot to add, (well my post went away in my original post and I had to re-type it)I had been reading BlueNC for quite sometime but I had not posted here until I was asked by several to do so. I don't just post places because I know that some folks can't take my agitation so unless something is going on that is of importance to me, I don't sign up and post.
