Why come if you didn’t like Fayette?
Why did you come?
This is response to the continuing battle being fought over Fayette County’s “at-large” voting system and the NAACP.
One has to wonder why blacks started coming to Fayetteville in the first place.
Was it/is it for the same reasons most white people chose to live here: a good school system, a place of conservative, family-oriented and, dare I say, Christian values? Is it because Fayette is a relatively safe place to raise your family ... relatively free (for the moment) of gangs and drugs. Is it because Fayette has a good system of governance?
Why did you come?
I also have to wonder what the majority of blacks who’ve made Fayette County their home really think.
Now that you’re here, do you really want to turn Fayette County into Clayton, or Fulton or wherever it was you moved from?
Is the voice of the NAACP the voice of blacks in Fayette or is the NAACP simply justifying its existence?
Is the NAACP, along with its puppet activists, trying to shame those blacks ... the “Uncle Toms” ... who dare to be conservative, who have found a better life because of their own hard work and efforts, who are bucking the stereotypical “entitlement mentality” and who are tired of the age-old out-of-touch activist rhetoric of the NAACP?
Is it really “the Advancement of Colored People” when you have a federal judge give you what you want and perpetrate the entitlement mentality?
Or are you so drugged by that “Kool-Aid” you do not even see it as such?
How much sweeter would it be if blacks in Fayette, on their own merits, fronted an electable candidate that all citizens of this county could support.
Would that not lend a truer more satisfying meaning to “the Advancement of Colored People”?
So, the question begs, why did you come?
