The Political Agitator East of Raleigh North Carolina


I have been called an agitator over the years so I have decided to change my name to reflect such. I love it because I found out several years ago that to effect change one must agitate, agitate and agitate. If a washing machine didn't have an agitator what do you think would happen?

The Political Agitator is seeking some folks from across the state to be Watch Dogs in their various counties. People need to be made aware of what is going on in their counties and surrounding counties because we all need to unite across county lines in order to effect change in North Carolina. We must hold all our leaders on every level accountable for their actions. What you will find is that all counties have some political, poverty and religious pimps in our communties that are holding us right where we are.

You can share your findings with Dancy Communications Network monthly or whenever you have information that you feel need to be made public. You can be anonymous if you like so therefore no one will have to know who you are.

Did you know that someone once called Dr. Martin L. King an agitator? So let's stop talking about it, let's be about it.

Cute, blonde and missing

by Ray Watters, Rocky Mount Telegram

Position available for young, photogenic middle-class child with straight white teeth. Send recent color photos or videotapes. Valid police report of disappearance a must. Caucasians only, please. That's not an advertisement for work from the 1960s. The civil rights movement did away with such things, but there's still one place that's as segregated as church. That's the missing person stories on the evening news. I don't mean the local channels. I'm much more likely to see a mixture of races there just because of the racial makeup of the area. No, this is something unique to the national broadcasts.

Another side of Andre Knight

By GEORGE A. CHIDI, Rocky Mount Telegram


The way Rocky Mount City Councilman Andre Knight talks about the Falls Road of his youth might make one wonder why he would ever want to own one of the stately homes on the road. "Blacks couldn't walk down the street in Falls Road unless they were doing domestic work," he said, describing the racial environment in the neighborhood during his father's youth. His father told him two things about running around town when he was growing up poor on a dead-end dirt road in South Rocky Mount, he said. "Don't play in the river, and don't get caught on Falls Road." http://www.rockymounttelegram.com/news/content/news/stories/2005/06/12/20050612rmtknight.html
(Thank you George Chidi for a damn good story about the Honorable Andre Knight before you moved on to the Atlanta Journal. This story brings out some key highlights surrounding Knight that I know about because I have been there with him since the late 90's when his troubles began. I reminded him weekly that they were going to come after him at the college and they did. Racism is still alive and well in the twin counties and anyone who do not think so has a serious problem.

Again I repeat RACE was a deciding factor on the historical district issue and Chris Miller (white female) councilwoman was the only, I repeat the only council person to bring up about race.

Andre continue to lead the city council by challenging all the board members, I repeat all to make some strong decisions that will only move Rocky Mount forward and not backwards as they have been going within the past 32 years.)

Freedom Fund banquet awards honors


With the theme "The Struggle Continues ... Speaking Truth to Power," residents and businesses were honored Friday at the 32nd annual Freedom Fund banquet held by Rocky Mount's branch of the NAACP. http://www.rockymounttelegram.com/news/content/news/stories/2005/06/12/20050612rmtfreedom.html

Note: TheWatchDog will do a follow up story on this event on tomorrow while viewing the video. The message brought forth by Rev. Charles White was a more powerful message than stated in the article above. H.D. Pope gave a charge to those in attendance about what we in the NAACP coverage area could do to help move Rocky Mount forward especially economically within the black community.

Favorable post???


The applauses are good but they are not the deciding factor for the mission of The DCN because TheWatchDog do not operate on how people feel about him or his work. I will continue to move forward in spite of the favorable and the unfavorable so in other words, "It does not matter about applause of people because I have found the purpose of my being and it is educating the people about what is going on around them."

For the unfavorable get that.

Brother Dancy, I personally think your site is very informative and keeps me up to date on issues in our local area, along with some regional and national information.

Edgecombe county has a tireless worker for the community in you. God bless you, your family, your friends and your enemies. For he is a good God, that can see beyond our faults and has the ability to forgive beyond our understanding. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
