'i.' rKlf The Forsyth County's 1992-93 budget eliminates 70 jobs and drastically cuts funds for education. The Forsyth County Commis sioner's vote also cut money for health ser vices and social service agencies. And as usual, said two Forsyth County Commissioners, blacks and poor people will be the ones mostly affected by the cuts to education, services and layoffs. "Historically, we know that personnel cuts most often affect blacks and poor people in general. The Reynolds Health Center, which services mostly low to moderate income people, will be one of those services that will be affected by these cuts," said County Commissioner Earline Parmon. "We're going to end up paying for this the end and the interest rate is going to be higher than it is now/ she said, following the board's 4-to-3 vote to adopt the budget plan designed by County Commissioner Richard Linville. Linville's budget proposal was supported by commissioners, Wayne Willard, Gerald Long and Peter Brunstetter.

Community outragod ? over all -white board vote ? Community leaders, residents will meet and discuss steps to take against the recent school board vote By SAMANTHA McKENZIE Chronicle Staff Writer The African-American community is outraged over last week's vote by the Wln ston-Salem/Forsyth County School Board. Talks of protesting and petitioning the school system were brought to the forefront when the school board voted to move for ward with redisricting plans. The outbursts came from a few commu nity leaders when the board voted 6- to- 3 to continue developing redisricting plans. Board members Nancy Wooten, Mary P. "Candy" Wood and Nancy Griffith voted to wait until December, but were defeated by the board's six Republican votes. Geneva Brown and Walter Marshall, held a press conference charging the board with toetii rag discrimination and racial separa tion between the white and black communi ties. "We are truly in a polarized racially biased community where racial separation and discrimination are basic to the way of life the elected officials invariably pledge them selves to the duality," said Brown during Fri day's press conference.

Anti-hate group to monitor race relations in city By SAMANTHA McKENZIE Chronicle Staff Writer As the community awaits the arraignment and trial of the four suspects in the Carlos Stoner murder, the North Carolinians Against Racist and Religious Violence began monitoring the possibili ties of hate-crime organizations arising in Winston-Salem. The May 27 death of Carlos Colon Stoner, a black male, sparked an uproar in the black community when the details of Stoner's execution-style murder became public. The four suspects, Mark Anthony Smith, Dwayne Gregory Doby, Ricky Eugene Knight and James Andrew Gilbert are being held in sepa rate facilities throughout the state. Christina Davis-McCoy, executive director of NCARRV, met with the Citi zen's United for Justice group yesterday and will meet with representatives from the Winston-Salem Police Department next Wednesday. "We need to address the concerns of this community and deal with the issue of community unrest as it relates to racial tension," said McCoy. McCoy said the goal of this visit is Please see page A2 Word on the street ... A Rapper Sister Souljah's criticism last week of Gov. Bill Clinton drew national attention to the presidential candidate and the need for a black agenda. Many people said ^ ' i Everything she said was correct. We need to stop killing the brother man and staft killing the other man. Had (Clinton) not been igno rant to our situations, she would riot have had any rea son to attack him. Ignorance is playing a key role in all of this. She is a positive sister and she is intelligent . . . and they are terrified of black intelligence. J - Anthonys Thorn II n?oq, 17 ( Why was she doing (Clin ton) like that? What I read about her statements, I did n't like. She's being too hard. We are already in a bad situation. Statements like that just cause more tension and racism. We don't really know what Clin ton will do until he gets in office. We need to give him a chance. He can't be any worse than (Bush). " J ? Don MHchill, 46 i If what she said was backed up with evidence and facts then I can under stand what she was saying. She is a very intelligent black woman. But I do think some of this was done for publicity (on both parts). Really, Clinton wants to be president and that's the bot tom ttne. H that moans play ing the black man for a fool, then he's going to do it. J - Tr?c#l Shavers, 21 C Something had to be done to make us more aware. She was right. It is now in the hand* of rap groups to be more contro versial to open our eyes. The white man is not really doing anything to help us. All he's doing is oovering things up. 1 think Bill Clinton used her statements to enhance his image. All politicians are that way. - S?v?ru? Hlgglrtbottham, 38 i I think that a lot of what she was saying was abso lutely true. I didnt think Clinton was the best man to become president anyway. I hadn't heard'of (Sister Souljah) until this hap pened. Her comments basi cally said he was a racist. It was right. (Many) are start ing to listen to what rappers are saying, including one of kids. 1 -Brands Plater, 38 TO SUBSCRIBE, CALL 722-8624, JUST DO IT!
