I bet the YDR had no idea that printing a book about a 85 year old church going christian man, who spent his entire life helping others and served as an ideal role model would generate the same kind of hatred from its readers as any other black man in the area. Sometimes I think the YDR thinks that their readers give a hoot about anything that is black. This is not some large metropolitian area, this is dutch country and as our Gov. said, there is

Philly on one side Pittsburg on the other and Alabama in the middle. York is Alabama
Hey King - credit James Carville with the Pittsburgh/Alabama/Philadelphi a statement.

As you are so into Zimbabwayyyyy, why don't YOU head over there for a nice couple of decades or so? We can help you find it on the map, and a lot of posters would be happy to chip in to buy you a one-way fare. We'll even get the flight attendent to give you a nice set of those little pilot wings so you can continue to pretend you are somebody important. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

James Carville is the bomb. I can't wait for the day when he slaps his wife all the way down to her knees.

My initial reaction when I stimbled acrss this post was that this was going to be yet another hype about nobody. Then I read the article. Boy was I wrong.

Mr. Grimes' life experiences and the way he responded to them does, indeed, serve to inspire. He is consistant in his living and educates through example. His story is inspirational, although not unique, and should be kindly received wth respect no matter the color of his skin.

I have been criticized in previous posts because I questioned the example of others held in high regard. Here is a genuine role model; if not for all, then for many.

If we cannot even recognize this and render unto him due respect, then we shall never come together.

Peace, Mr. Grimes.

No more than it is for you...you know, with your father being your uncle and all. Stop hating on Mr. Grimes. Write a book your damn self and fill with all of your flawed thoughts...it would probably be a best seller because ignorance sells in America.

Lovely, another typical bash whitey book. Wonder if he ever recalled when a evil white guy cut him a break, by giving him a job, or promotion in the Army ?? What about his freedom to have this education he speaks of, no doubt it was created by evil white guys..(who created the institutions he probably attends) So here we go …another bashing America and “I triumphed despite how bad America is” book. Just like the rest, it will be placed in a ole box, and forgotten.
Lets seem him write a book about Zimbabwe and the recent elections there..where the president of Zimbabwe runs on an anti-white platform. How whites are killed there, land taken from them.. funny.. no book about that eh? So typical. This like books from Al Sharpton, and Jessie da baby maker Jackson will be used to prop a door open. Nothing more.
More wisdom from the resident YDR racist

The hatred written here is only of a few. Those few matter not when it comes to the big picture and what a respectable, giving, educated, good man Mr. Grimes was and is. Who cares what those few have to say. They don't speak for the majority who appreciate his writings by being enriched by his memoirs and experiences. So ignore the few. Do not respond. They just want attention and you are giving them an audience by responding. Please don't waste this space. Leave it for the positive comments.
Thank you Mr. Grimes for you intellect and experiences you have shared. I hope your book sells well.
I agree..I met this man a few years ago and there are no airs or prentension about him. He is widely respected by many in the community. Can't wait to read the book.

I GREW UP IN THE CITY OF YORK, NEIGHBORS TO VONI GRIMES, HE WAS AN AWESOME PERSON THEN, AND HE IS STILL AN AWESOME PERSON. WHY ARE SO MANY PEOPLE JEALOUS OF WHAT HE HAS ACCOMPLISHED, HE WORKED FOR IT. HE WASNT AFRAID TO PUSH HIMSELF AND MAKE SOMETHING OF HIS LIFE. SO MANY OTHER PEOPLE TAKE THE EASY WAY OUT, GET ASSISTANCE AND TRY NOT TO MAKE ANYTHING OF THEIR LIFE. HE WORKED HARD AND HE DESERVES EVERYTHING HE GETS IN LIFE. FYI I AM WHITE
