I'm ashamed I live in District 4, Cobb County!
We have a County Commissioner in my district that is up for re-election this year and I can honestly say, "I'm ashamed I live in District 4, Cobb County!" If this woman gets re-elected, I'm seriously thinking of moving out of the County! Her major concerns in the county are bus transportation and parks.
She spoke in a predominantly black church on 2-17-2008 and said that she works with angry white women. I'll find the transcripts of her speech that she delivered. Stay tuned for follow ups.
The following is the video footage that I filmed today at her Press Conference explaining why she said what she did! It makes no sense. Nothing she says makes any sense! Put your religious faith aside and be the judge.
The gentleman to her right on the video is Gerald Rose the founder of the New Order National Human Rights. He appears to think he's the next MLK or Jesse Jackson. He moved to Georgia from Ohio to help us correct our intolerance and injustice.
Here are his words:
On June 24, 2000, Gerald Rose relocated into the Atlanta Area and established the New Order movement throughout Metro Atlanta, with offices in Cobb County and Clayton County.
Today New Order has extended it's services nationwide and continues to seek justice for all God's people.
"Because injustice is here"
"Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral question of our time-the need for man to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to violence and oppression."
"One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely,one has moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws..... One who breaks an unjust law must do so openly, and lovingly and with a willingness to accept the penalty."
"I am in Cobb & Clayton County & Augusta Georgia because injustice is here.... just as the Apostle Paul left his village of Tarsus and carried the gospel of Jesus Christ to the far corners of the Greco-Roman world, so am I compelled to carry the gospel of freedom beyond my own home town of Toledo,Ohio."
"In our own nation the Boston Tea Party represented a massive act of civil disobedience."
(There were several typos when I pasted this text and just to note his web site does not acknowledge Jesus Christ by capitalization, but I corrected in my paste.)
"It’s always fascinating to hear the persecuted say what they believe is in the minds of others. Cobb Commissioner Annette Kesting opines that “a lot of white folks are mad because I married a white man because I am a black woman.”
