Rev. Dante Murphy has again made a comment on a recent article that deserves the full attention of Cleveland County citizens and readers. In my opinion, Rev. Murphy did not go far enough with his statement. The vast majority of the white community are also exploited by Shelby politicians, just by different methods, dirty tricks and lies. And, of course, pitting the white community against the black community to help cover-up the corruption and graft. As well as keeping the Country Club good-ole-boys (and girls) in control.
Rev. Murphy’s Comment:
Mayor Stan Anthony and Rev. Charles Webber recently met with the Cleveland County NAACP. This reminds me of the appearances Mr. Eddie H. (Holbrook) used to make around election time to smooth the black community over to gain support. Blacks and minorities should be outraged when pastors and community leaders allow such exploitation. It is bad enough to remain silent, but a pure embarrassment to be used in such a vicious way.
NAACP members should have demanded an explanation of the pending lawsuit involving discrimination and defamation charges against city (actually against Mr. Willie Green). For a former NFL professional football player to go through a lawsuit without the support of the faith community and civil rights organizations is a pure disgrace to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and other civil rights icons.
Folks, stay tuned for more information about Mr. Willie Green’s Lawsuit against the City of Shelby and Rick Howell individually. Presently the city and Rick Howell have filed three frivolous Motions to Dismiss the discrimination and defamation lawsuit. This is certainly in hopes of finding a loophole to crawl into instead of admitting to what they have done. The first two Motions to Dismissed have been denied by a Federal Judge and a hearing on the third is coming soon. I have included the Lawsuit and other information in previous articles and other articles are forthcoming. As I stated, stay tuned.
