Dear Ms. Lunelle,
On Friday morning, November 28, 2016, don in the uniform of the Southern soldier, I would post the Southern Cross approximately three blocks from the entrance to
the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was a smoke filled morning from the fires that raged in the mountains, making the cars that passed barely visible except for their headlights.
Somewhere around 7:30 AM, a car would pull into a driveway of a business adjacent to where I stood, and a young Black lady would approach me. “Sir, what is this all
about?” “Read my sign,” I would reply. United Nations Beware! Nikki Judas Haley Coming!
I would recount the story of a young man doped up on mind altering drugs who would come to a church in Charleston, South Carolina, where the parishioners would with
arms wide open invite him into the House of God, and he would reward them with the hideous crime of murder.
And that the Northern Press would descend upon the State Capitol in Columbia proclaiming that all the flags in the State were at half staff, except the racist Battle
Flag on the Confederate soldiers monument on the capitol grounds. And instead of Haley taking the high ground of explaining to them that the Confederate soldiers
monument was purely an outside historical exhibit and that the flag did not warrant to be placed at half staff.
Instead she would betray the trust of the people of the state and South by placing the flag in dishonor, blaming it for Roof’s actions. The young lady would
interject, “It was an evil act that should have not been blamed on the flag, or used to desecrate the memory of the Confederate soldier who had many Blacks in their
ranks, and too bear this moment of desecration as well.” She would give me a big hug, thank me for talking to her and for being brave enough to take an honorable stand.
Moments later, an elderly Black man would pull his car into the same spot where the young lady had just exited. With outstretched hands, he would introduce himself,
and proclaim to be an attorney, a Life Member of the NAACP, and a fan of mine who admired my courage for years.
He went on to say that he had read my accounting of an illegal election that the NAACP had conducted on me almost two decades ago. And that he not only wanted to
meet, but also talk with me for a long time. He went on to say that he often wandered why I had not asked world class attorney Kirk D. Lyons to conduct a civil
lawsuit against the State of North Carolina and the National NAACP.
“I read that the State President of the NAACP on a Saturday morning came here, set up a meeting in a church with the help of your predecessor, paid for and
provided memberships to persons living in a Housing Authority that he was the Administrator of. And one that was a part of a targeted lawsuit that you, your
Executive body and the Southern Legal Resource Center had put into motion against the Affordable Housing Coalition in this city, to include providing memberships to
Administrators of various targeted members of that coalition.
“And, the State President would direct those present over your objections, that an election of officers of your Branch would take place on that morning. And after
your objection that he could not do this, because it was a violation of the 501 C3 National bylaws, and that your Nominating committee had already submitted to the
Executive committee a list of names (yours being prominent) to be presented to the General body, and that no election could be held unless that body was notified 30
days in advance. And, that no member could vote in said election unless they were a member for at least 30 days prior to.
“The State President’s claim that he had written authorization to suspend the National Bylaws and conduct this election seems highly unlikely and improbable to
me,” he went on to say, “and furthermore, his denial to allow you to see that supposed authorization leads me to believe that the whole process was a violation of your
civil rights, and the laws that govern the internal revenue process of a non- profit.
“And, I don’t believe that there is a statue of limitation on this matter that I too believe was unlawful. And furthermore, technically not only because of
the procedure, but also the written promise and reply of the national Director, Julian Bond, to investigate your complaint of this matter; until that formal
investigations results is supplied to you and the Asheville Branch, you are still their President!
“I can only wish you well in whatever you decide to do. And, I thank and respect you for an honorable stand for truth.” He would embrace me and shake my hand.
I had meant to write about this matter when I began work on a book. However, after this conversation, I would canvass various members of the SLRC Board of Directors
and the Chief trial Counselor, Kirk D. Lyons and be told that it merited investigation, but that I would have to raise a fair sum of money to move forward. God bless you!
