I do not pray for certain people. It is my job to pray for everyone! Lasko you have a serious problem and not worth the time it takes to argue with you. But let me get one thing straight ! I am not Dancy ! You pick a fight with me and I will give you a fight. And rest assure I will come out the winner !

I'm not wroth the time?

Thank you BADMAN for proving my point. Jesus came to save the lost (people with serious problems) that you don't have time for but are willing to fight and destroy just as the rest of the "Faith base community" do nothing to help the poor. THANK YOU SIR. Johnny Cunningham 252-266-3858


We all have "serious problems". My fight is for the poor and those who don't give a #$##$ about them and the "Faith base community" if you're in one of those groups then so be it if not shut up, sit down and get out the way. Johnny Cunningham 252-266-3858 What's yours BADMAN?

Prayers !

This is a time to pray for the families of all 3 victims. This is a tragic story for the 3 men who lost their lives. It is not a time for rumors or gossip or ugly remarks. It is a time for prayers,a time for strength and a time for respect. My prayers go out to all the families. I pray that God will give you strength,peace,love and understanding. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord ! I pray that all three of these are now with their Lord and Saviour!


that every time a tragedy take place in the "faith base community" prayers and sorrow go up but when every day tragedies take place in poor black communities people as BADMAN and Dancy have nothing to say. Pick your own fight I have.




Sad! You just had to go there.

Mr. Dancy

hair stylist died in car accident but not tv news, or Telegram news or said to be part of the "Faith base community" did all of you praying "faith base community" church folks for get to mention or ask for prayers for her family?

How ignant!

How did you connect me to the "Faith base community" or whatever you are talking about because I am lost. But for your information I don't know the hair stylist nor 2 of the guys killed in the other accident. I know the driver or the owner of the car because he was a friend on Facebook and I am familiar with his dad. Again enlighten me on how you connected me to the "Faith base community" issue you have because I don't have a clue.

Mr. Dancy

I don't care what your name is or who you are or what color you want to be, when you take from the poor you will be exposed every time I get a chance to do so. The truth will come to light. If you have a problem with that we can meet to settle that problem. again what are you doing to create jobs for poor blacks other than running your trap saying nothing.


You can't expose me. What have I taken from the poor? I am poor myself. How in the hell can I have a problem with someone I don't know. I don't have any reason to have a problem with you because you mean nothing to me. Again I repeat I am not going to create not one job nor is the Rocky Mount City Council so get that!

Mr. Dancy

You think you speak for blacks but as you said "I am not going to create not one job" you only run your trap fronting like you care for poor blacks but truth be exposed you don't give a schitt about poor black only your own hide and that makes you a big problem in the poor black community. When you do nothing to help the poor then you're part of the problem. So now you think you speak for the Rocky Mount city council? LMBAOAU FOOL. It will be a great day in the hood when all you FAKE "FAITH BASE COMMUNITY" FOLKS BLACK FLIGHT WEST TO YOUR NEW MEGA CHURCH UNDER THE GREAT LEADERSHIP OF THE ONE AND ONLY JAMES D GALLIARD SAVUIOUR OF THE WORLD AND GET OUT THE HOOD so that we the poor can rebuild our lives and communities that the FAKE "FAITH BASE COMMUNITY" FOR YEARS ALLOWED TO BECOME A DUMPING GROUND FOR THE POOR. JESUS came to SAVE the LOST, the SINNER.

Prayers To Pastor James Galliard

It's my understanding his step-son was one of the people in the vehicle.
