Bring Back The Basketball Goals in Bessemer City, NC Campaign Blog

Hump Day Radio’s very own S.A.M Fortune grew up playing on these courts so it holds a special place in his heart. An isolated incident of violence broke out on the basketball courts in Bessemer City, NC and the basketball goals were taken down in order to (and I quote a local resident) “eliminate certain types of people from the area in order to prevent any further incidents.”
Well… I don’t EEeeVen have the time to go off apropos, so I’ll be brief… because I always like to take the opportunity to show those who think there’s not a difference in how things are handled when “certain types of people” are involved, that there is.

You see that slide in the one picture? That leads into a pool the city charges people to swim in all summer. They make a killing. Numerous incidents of violence have occurred at this pool and the pool is still there. There’s a Park about 15 minutes away named Martha Rivers Park and they have soccer fields and baseball fields on which numerous fights between over zealous parents have erupted over bad officiating or just plain ol redneck pride… And guess what?…. Yep…. Baseball fields and soccer fields are still there.

I’ve always been aware that the reason they didn’t put basketball goals up at Martha Rivers Park is so that the little privileged kids in the nice neighborhoods surrounding it would be less likely to have to interact with…. YOU GUESSED IT!! ….”certain types of people.”
I make zero excuses for ill-behaved numbskulls… ANY TYPE… but I question this “resolution.”
Let’s just take the goals down.
Let’s just go ahead and apply that logic to EVERYTHING…
There; I’ve “said something about these photos.” The city council needs to find a better solution then just to close down the park and takeaway something that has been apart of this community for years now. Hump Day Radio is starting a campaign to bring back the courts to Bessemer City.

Evictions of Pain; Shanetta Nichols

Well wishes go out to Shanetta’s daughter Kala, the one on the far right… Since the recording of this show, she was involved in an accident that has put her in a coma but now she is woke and recovering. She got on the microphone toward the end of this segment and spoke briefly about how her Mother’s book changed their family for the good. Very powerful segment and our thoughts are with this family right now.
