A Front Page Editorial of The Carolina Indian Voice
The election of Indian, Democrat Glenn Maynor as Sheriff on
Nov. 8 will help bind up Robeson County's racial wounds
7his is the last in a series of eth
? lorials devoted lo the theme of "The
Stale of Things in Ol " Robeson " It
is rife with the opinion oj this news
paper, hut rings through and through
with unabashed truth
li s pitiful and a bad reflection on
racially crazy Robeson County but
many of us arc walking on emotional
egg shells and waiting lo sec what
? kind of mess w ill be throw n at Glenn
1 May nor in the pages of The
Robcsoman a day or so before the
election next Tuesday Many of us
do not believe much of w hat we read
in the pages of that right-wing. Re
publican charged newspaper (sic)
Too mam of us remember the un
timely death of Julian Pierce, candi
date for Superior Court Judge in
1988 We also remember other situ
ations where Indian people have
been "set up "
Some have asked why Glenn
Maynor did not respond to reports
of the so-called shooting at Rep
Frances Cummings home IF the
devil called you and told you heaven
uas not real, would be believe him''
The Robesontan has bashed Glenn
Maynor for years, ever since Ik ran
against outgoing ShcrifT Hubert
Stone and lost a hotly contested race
four years ago Mr May nor usually
isn't asked anything in the
Robe soman and only reads bad
things therein He had "no com
ment" We don't blame him If Brant
Clifton, or some other Robesonian
staffer, called us. we d say "No com
ment" too. laced w ith strong unmis
takable language Mr Maynor prob
ably thought he \\ as being set up lie
thought right' as we see it
But folks, let s not be tricjicd
again by the Robesonian and its ra
cial muttcrings It claims to be (Ik
daily newspaper, serving all the
people, but seems to speak only to
right-wing anglo Republicans In the
course of an election, tltcy usually
run oui a Frances Cumniings. a to
ken Indian or Black, to justifv their
existence, this lime we're not biting
It s sad. indeed, in a counts made
up of 40% Indian 25% Black. 55%
white when the so-called daily
speaks only to its conservativ e ele
ment The rest of us traditionally bus
the newspaper so called to see how
outrageous their latest editorial u ill
be We suggest tlsat our readers stop
using the Robcsonijin period Don t
bus it don't advertise in it. don't run
vour wedding in it Ignore it! Will
Rogers said once. "All I know is
what I read in the newspaper IT
that 's so concerning the Robesontan
we don't know much and will re
flect their narrow-nunded. even rac
ist. v iew of things in OI Robeson
The best message we can send the
Robcsonian. and those w ho share its
I R60s view of things, is to come out
in great numbers on Nov ember X and
elect Indian and Democrat Glenn
