You'll actually have to click on the link above to view the picture. There were also updates to the post on September 5, 2012, September 6, 2012, and December 17, 2012. You'll want to take the time to read them all.
Then on September 24, 2012, Roch Smith jr wrote, Sanders on Bermuda trip: "Everyone paid their own way" Only thing was, Dabney Sanders was not willing to provide any evidence of any kind.
We were patient. Sometimes you have to be. On March 6, 2016 I posted Walker Sanders And Lomax, Part 2 in which I explained to my readers how I believe Dabney Sanders embezzled the Greenway money away from the City of Greensboro.
"But you see, all the while I've known that Dabney Sanders was lying. And I'm not the only one who knew Ms Sanders was lying. Others who I had hoped would expose her were keeping what I am about to tell you a secret. For you see, as director of Action Greensboro at that time Dabney Sanders was also the sole person in charge of the for profit Action Greensboro subsidiary Greensboro Downtown Greenway LLC."
"Greensboro Downtown Greenway LLC is a fully owned for profit subsidiary of the non profit Action Greensboro and there is only one reason to form a for profit business-- to make a profit for you and your partners. Now you know why the cost of building the Downtown Greenway have been out of control for so long. Please share this post so that everyone else knows as well."
Well as it turns out, 5 years later this story hasn't gone away. As a matter of fact, the City of Greensboro just made the story even bigger than before by refusing a public information request that could have proved Billy Jones wrong. That is, if I'm wrong.
Today Roch Smith jr publishes Institutional Racism in which he writes:
"GREENSBORO, NC — Institutional racism is not just a catchphrase. It has real manifestations. I encountered an unfortunate but obvious one today. The City of Greensboro denied my request for copies of audits of Downtown Greensboro Greenway, LLC, the organization the City does business with to help build and help maintain the City’s Downtown Greenway.
The City said that such records are not public records under state law. This position is legally ignorant and inconsistent with the City’s treatment of the audits of the International Civil Rights Center and Museum."
Thing is, as Roch points out, such records are public records. That is, if they exist. By all means, please read Institutional Racism by Roch Smith jr and decide for yourself. And remember: the amount of money that has been spent on the civil rights museum is pocket change compared to the bill the City is going to be stuck with now.
And all this at a time when the City is raising taxes and almost 25% of our population lives below the poverty line.
Now why would the City of Greensboro want to hide the one thing that proves the innocence of several of our City's most well known elite white citizens at a time when the very man they hired to run their glorious performing arts center has turned out to be under not one but two investigations since he was hired by Walker Sanders.
