What happens on the video from 8:34 – 10:38 may startle you. Andre Knight, a City Councilman and arrestee at “Witness Wednesday,” began to question Daughtridge’s motives for raising concerns about the Event Center. The main point Knight presented was that the questioning arose “because of the makeup of the Council” and that there is an African American City Manager. While looking through all the arguments against the event center, there is no mention of the demographic makeup of Rocky Mount.
Was the Councilman looking out for the good of the community – or pulling the race card? Check out the video and decide for yourself.
