AMEN! ^5! AND ALL THAT! YOUR POST SUMS IT ALL UP!!! i'm glad to know i'm not the ONLY one that feels this way about Scotland Neck--i have some warm memories from there, but you are right--people MUST GET INVOLVED! i wasn't raised there, only lived there for three years and most of my family have moved or passed on with the exception of my great grandfather--what a sad place... kudos and more kudos to your post--on point!  (Nov 26, 2008 | post #63)

peace, i just thought about something for you both eboni and rhonda--words of wisdom reflect appreciate action to do better--get up, get out and do something---POSITI VE leave the nonsense shyt to the birds...this means anger, gangs, pity, bitterness--ANYTHI NG that will bring detriment educate love self and raise those babies to do the same please do that cause focusing on the negative and glorifying it won't get anyone anywhere... when you get in your thirties, you definitely don't wanna be broke in jail dead or unhappy you wanna LIVE and LOVE life! our ancestors didn't sacrifice for us to have to go through this nonsense---let this all be a lesson... my heart hurts DAILY looking at the mess, the condition that our people, this world are in we've gotta RISE the hell up and stop this nonsense NOW! all this is said in LOVE! where do you want your lives to be five years from now and are you doing anything to get to your dreams? ACTION yall ACTION love ya dearly, i really do  (Jun 27, 2008 | post #25)

you typed in ALL CAPS--expressing it, huh? lol... yep, it's a tough time for everyone, so sad...thankfully he appears to be handling it all the best he can and the letters are CHERISHED from him--each and every one of them...i write to him as often as i can--sad thing is, it's SAD to talk to someone so much AFTER they enter jail and NOT before...what does the family need to do? BETTER SELF as much as possible and rise up out of these awful situations that we as a people tend to put ourselves in...each one, teach one--learn from the mistakes and stop the excuses...cause regardless of this happ'nin, the struggles continue, but no need for us to piss on the spirit of our ancestors and to continue perpetuating violence, sitting on our aszes and not contributing to the GOOD that is within-thus destroying communities, family and all that is GREAT---the GREATNESS needs to be brought out, and ALL people regardless of economic status, color or religion need to learn to LOVE SELF--that way LOVE for all CAN prevail... much love to ya always... p.s. hope to see you guys one day soon...  (Jun 27, 2008 | post #23)

noyzmakr--how fitting of a name...i, for one, didn't make excuses--but scotland neck and many towns like it need to rise up...that is one place that has stayed stuck in the mindset of the 1800's and it's VERY apparent when one drives through the town...there are MANY issues that add up to the sad nonsense that happens in MANY communities and scotland neck SURELY isn't alone in it--but that place is backwards--VERY backwards and YOU, someone that lived there--you strike out and talk a lot of noise--but when have you sat down and offered ANY solutions for any of these awful awful issues going on??? accountability goes a LONG way on the part of us ALL!!! what have YOU contributed to THAT particular community that YOU hail from??? and ^5 Stefanie---on POINT!!!  (Jun 9, 2008 | post #19)

peace to you, i haven't lived in scotland neck for years, but me, being a thirty something professional, i'm not going to try and down the town anymore, but i wouldn't wanna raise my family there...the three year window i lived there during my middle school years was awful compared to the life i had in raleigh...raleigh has it's issues, that's very true, but as far as the job market, education and access to things to do, i prefer cary MUCH better! (raised in raleigh, but cary resident for the past 4 years or so) HOWEVER, i have been contemplating buying a home there to sit back and relax : )  (Jun 9, 2008 | post #45)

Peace and blessings Debbie! i wouldn't want to raise a child in Scotland Neck--the school system is not that great and jobwise it's not great... if you have aims to move down south--i'd recommend the Raleigh-Durham area--GREAT schools, GREAT jobs, GREAT environment overall! here's the link to our newspaper www.newsobserver.c om  (Dec 3, 2007 | post #16)

Race colors election fight

Glad to see some dialogue going on here--however, Scotland Neck is the pits--sorry...that town is just as backwards as ANY place i've EVER been to...business wise, job wise, education wise--awful--there needs to be a change--and unfortunately many see color as an issue--b/c it IS AN ISSUE...the few years i lived in that town--i was AMAZED at the seperation of people...coming from living in Raleigh all my young life i felt like i stepped back into the 18th century, but i digress b/c this isn't the thread for that... the way to get through this IS dialogue--you may think Partin did some good for Scotland Neck and there are others that feel he didn't...where's the middle line... and p.s. just b/c one may not have voted for Partin doesn't mean they are uninformed or hateful--maybe they just wanna see more CHANGE and it's time for someone new to step in... peace  (Nov 30, 2007 | post #4)
