Rev. Bill Godair of North Carolina’s Cornerstone Church joined forces with the NAACP last week to claim the police in Salisbury have a history of mistreating citizens.

“With all of the issues that have taken place in Ferguson, Missouri,” he said, “I refuse to sit back and not do anything or say anything until Ferguson, Missouri, becomes a reality here in Salisbury.”

“A year ago,” he said, “I felt that I was very, very badly mistreated by the Salisbury PD. I had just been to a funeral. I was on my way to the hospital. I was in dress clothes, my wife was with me. . . . I never said anything to nobody, actually it was in February of 2013.”

According to WBTV, Godair wrote a letter to Salisbury Mayor Paul Woodson claiming his wife was “scared” by the aggressive behavior of the officer.

But police say there is “no evidence of misconduct” in the police officer’s interaction with Godair, and released the video of when the reverend was pulled over in 2013 to prove it (footage via WBTV):

WSOC-TV contacted Godair about the incident, and he maintains the police acted inappropriately.

    “I looked under the bed and lo and behold… I found ‘racism.'”

    Rev.[sic] Godair: “I never said anything to nobody…”
    How about learning correct English first, before you start spouting off about ‘nothing’ and ‘nobody.’

    • ghettovalley

      Do you remember the article around a year ago about how racism was playing a part in black dogs not getting adopted from animal shelters? It doesn’t matter how much we do for these people they will still grasp at straws to accuse us of racism and blame us for their failures as a group. I think it’s time we cut our losses and stop trying to make them happy. If they don’t like it, they can catch the first boat to Liberia.

      • Puggg

        I don’t even get why breeders ever chose black as a good pug color.

      • Nonhumans

        My dog is black. I adopted him from a pound. My choice to adopt him had nothing to do with the color of his fur, but was based upon the content of his character.
        .
        If he acted like an ape, I wouldn’t have adopted him. Simple as that. It’s amazing the lengths that these libtards and blacks will stretch in attempts to shame whites. Intelligent people who dont buy their stuff must really peeve them.

        • Ours is a fox who thinks he is a dog.

          • ghettovalley

            From what I hear they are good pets, and actually make a barking noise similar to a dog.

      • Douglas Quaid

        I am completely with you. It will never be enough, whites will always be called racist oppressors so long as we keep playing by their rules.

        It’s been painful for me to read articles posted by friends who mean well, written by blacks giving the tiresome schtick of being oppressed and how whites just don’t “Get it.” Excuse me? What am I not getting? That you people can’t keep a family together? Can’t hold a job? Constantly engage in destructive behavior? And absolutely refuse to take any responsibility?

    • OHDeutscheKlezmerRebel

      My reaction as well. A man that makes his living writing and speaking should speak his native tongue correctly. If he had said “I never said anything to anybody”, I might continue listening.

    • “I never said anything to nobody…”
      Translated: “I didn’t do nuffins.”

      “…Actually, it was in February of 2013.”
      Which is why this loser took 18 months to feel he had been mistreated.

      “Goodair’s wife was ‘scared’.”
      Goodair says 18 months later that his wife was scared.

      “With all of the issues that have taken place in Ferguson, Missouri…”
      Translated: “Me too, me too! I gots ta be haben some money, gnome sayin’?”

    • Germanicus

      I think perhaps you really meant to say, “nuffin,'” MekongDelta69, am I not correct? I was flabbergasted the first time that one of my black college students asked me if she could “aks” a question. I think that I must have stared off into the distance as I niw recall vividly my brain struggling to process what I had just heard. I had always thought that this had been a cruel joke repeated by ignorant whites. Well, look who is repeating the anecdote now. I was learned me a lesson.

      • Whitetrashgang

        Its axe a question. As in I just axed my girlfriend for being a ho.

  • IstvanIN

    Godair is black? Did the cop know that? The video is poor.

    • The Worlds Scapegoat

      The news reporter was black. I don’t think I have seen a white male reporter in over 15 years.

      .

      • TruthBeTold

        The senior reporters like Andre Mitchell are still kept on as token Whites.

        I watched a NBC Nightly a few days ago and I noticed the first three stories were all reported by non-whites.

    • TruthBeTold

      Exactly.

      Try to identify the race of the person in the car in front of you.

      • APaige

        True. Or just speeding past your view. I remember the NJ turnpike issue with profiling. Investigators used cameras to measure how much ‘profiling’ there was involved. They determined based on the video of drivers, that Blacks were speeding more often. The same people who believed the police can tell the race of a driver did not believe video was enough. Police must have super-vision.

      • Nancy

        Around Atlanta, that’s not too difficult. Especially with the blinged-out back license plates and ridiculous ghetto “rims”. They’re also fond of tinted windows.

        But the biggest clue in there parts: the black drivers (particularly female) drive exactly how they act in every other public situation, which is to say they behave as if THEY are the only person on the road. Therefore, they’ll drive 10+ under the speed limit, cut you off, ignore green arrows or yield signs, refuse to signal, eat their Big Macs and yap on the phone, blast their “music”, and generally only use their rear-view mirrors to hang ghetto trash items (males) or check their makeup and weaves (females).

        • OHDeutscheKlezmerRebel

          Exactly. Police can tell by the driving style. Blacks are far more likely to be driving in a way that gives police reason to stop them. Blacks love to use the lame excuse “driving while Black”, instead of driving safely and responsibly. Police pull over dangerous drivers, and enforce traffic laws. Driving like an [email protected] hole is the reason most Blacks are pulled over. It seems to be a key component of the Negro temperament to never accept responsibility for one’s failings.

        • Douglas Quaid

          Around here blacks are always driving the old Crown Victoria cars, the one’s police used to use in the early 2000’s. Maybe they rode in the back at some point and enjoyed the smooth ride? They always have some idiotic paint job often with logos like “Skittles”, “Lucky Charms” or some other childish corporate logo painted on the side, and never the kind of color a factory car would come with. Which is a dead give away that it is a black’s car, almost no white person will pay money to paint their car neon pink.
          For example, I was riding with my brother to a restaurant and as we pulled up to a stop light I saw a lime green colored car with the stupid rims and tinted windows. I remarked to my brother, “I guarantee there’s some black driving that car”…bingo! He just laughed. I guess stereotypes are too obvious sometimes.

        • Strider73

          Actually, anyone with >=10 functioning brain cells who lives in Dixie is “fond of tinted windows.” Your car becomes an oven in summer without them, even if you put up a windshield screen. Our cars’ windows are tinted as dark as the law allows, which here in Florida is pretty dark but still lighter than in Arizona. A local shop did the job for $150 each, and it was worth every cent.

      • Usually Much Calmer

        If you pay attention to how they drive, you can.
        Trust me, I live in Chicago. I’ve made a game of it.

    • APaige

      He looked White to me. Maybe he looked Black to the officer because he was breaking the law.

  • Puggg

    At first glance, I would not put it out of the bounds of possibility that the black preacher tried to egg on the cop into behaving aggressively just so the reverend could have a “war story” about cop aggression to tell over and over and maybe even raise money off of.

  • TruthBeTold

    ‘One of the passengers felt uncomfortable’.

    Oh my.

  • Vito Powers

    Most likely, Rev. Bill is just another mail-order minister like Jesse and Al. Also most likely, Rev Bill is receiving government money from the Bush/Obama Faith-based Initiative program. Have you ever notice all these “ministers”/”pastors”, etc of all races and colors? It has to be some sort of scam, maybe even drug money laundering.

  • Vito Powers

    here’s a link to a more detailed police video of the incident:
    http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2014/08/25/5128421/video-obtained-after-pastor-naacp.html#.VAEAimOuTpw

    Monday, WBTV obtained the more than six minute video of Godair’s traffic stop in 2013.

  • Negro female reporters such as the two in this video are why I would not watch TV news. With news websites I don’ t have to look at those fat, misshapen bodies and listen to them “axe” questions.

    • Nonhumans

      Not to mention listen to the idiotic hosts interrupt their guests every 3 words because they dont want to hear the truth.
      .
      Thats one of the most frustrating things when Jared graces these clowns with an interview. If you request input, then shutup after you have asked your question.

      • Usually Much Calmer

        My new peeve is reporters ‘asking’ : “It must be pretty [I’m going to tell you what to agree with now], I’d imagine, isn’t it?”

        I hear this lot on TV/radio and sometime even in transcripted interviews that are printed.

  • Luca

    Me thinks this so-called pastor speaketh in tongues.

  • disqus_Xz3UA6obwj

    Professor Louis Gates syndrome is apparently very common amongst blacks.

    • LIBERTYSINCURSION

      True, however this slimy “Reverend Godair” < yeah, nice name Reverend ) was White.

      For some reason this "Reverend" reminds me of the idiotic Catholic Priest Michael Pfleger. You know, the Dip-Stick who went on an embarrassing "Hey, b-black people, lo-look over here,,, see how not racist I am,, you, y-you guys like me, right?" kind of "Sermon". Where he ranted about Hilary Clinton losing the Demoncrater nomination for President to Sheik Barry Al-shatee-Skittle-Hussein Obama. In which I'll just leave you with a section of this idiot's "Sermon", which will probably refresh your memory of just who I'm talking about. ( I Took The Below Quote From Wikipedia )

      "I really believe that she just always thought, 'This is mine. I'm Bill's wife. I'm white, and this is mine. I just gotta get up and step into
      the plate.' Then out of nowhere came, 'Hey, I'm Barack Obama,' and she
      said, 'Oh, damn! Where did you come from? I'm white! I'm entitled!
      There's a black man stealing my show!'" He then pretended to wipe tears
      from his face, a reference to Clinton's emotional speech before the New Hampshire primary, and added, "She wasn't the only one crying. There was a whole lot of white people crying." <- Yup, As Western Civilization Took One Massive Step Back Toward The Cave! )

    The quality and the efficiency of this country has gone downhill. The downward slide is now irrevocable. As this country fills up with mexicans and God knows what, there is no way to turn back the tide. Well, there is a way of turning back the tide. But, who the hell is going to do it? Welcome to the third world America! Holy cow! You are one for the history books (assuming there will even such things in the future) a first class nation that invented pretty much everything, has now decided to self-immolate. Why? For some goddamned reason that we Whites should feel guilty for being the smartest, and the most enterprising and the most explorative and the most creative and the best race ever on the face of the earth. Why are we being made to suffer? As Lady Gaga would say: “Born This Way”. Oh, wait, that phrase counts for EVERYONE, but we Whites. Talk about discrimination. Talk about racism. Talk about anti-Christian. We Whites are the new negroes. We made a mistake, and we rectified it. What is going on now, is nothing more than genocide. Even Jim Crow did not call for that.

    Jesus wouldn’t drive a Hummer, but Black Jesus would.

  • LIBERTYSINCURSION

    I’m firmly convinced that all of our police officers across the Nation should wear a camera and microphone on them at all times. It will clear up most of these garbage claims of misconduct on the part of the officers, and would also be used to get rid of cops who really are abusive. If Darren Wilson had a camera and mic on him we would’ve heard a brief story in the local St. Louis area press. About, “an officer who was forced to take a man’s life after being violently assaulted by a 6’4″ 300 pound youth, who tried to take the officer’s gun from him. All of which transpiring just 5 minutes or so after he allegedly committed a strong armed robbery at a local convenience store.”

  • LHathaway

    The officer sounded kind of rude. It seems like they often do.

  • Dale McNamee

    From the artic;e : ” Rev. Bill Godair of North Carolina’s Cornerstone Church joined forces with the NAACP last week to claim the police in Salisbury have a history of mistreating citizens.”

    Say no more…

    • Jack Burton

      What it really is, is blacks in certain positions of authority think they’re above the law and view it as “disrespect” that they be treated like other citizens.

      • Dale McNamee

        So much for “equal treatment under the law”…

  • fatbaby

    Reverends little Quonset hut church and he be driving a hummer,another black bling reverand on the way to the cleaners ,which explains why he was speeding.
    Typical black logic.

    • Melvin Bonzarelli

      Their parishioners are poor, but these guys are rolling in dough. And they have their pick of the women, too.

  • none of your business

    There was an article on free republic. Some university got a grant to study black women and breast feeding. Conclusion was that black woman do not breast feed because of racial discrimination. Racism to the right of me, racism to the left of me racism above me and below me, racism in front and behind me raaaaayyyyyyycism.

  • Annabelle Pettyjohn

    Blacks have reached the status of Jews in America. You do not mess with a black period. Even the truth is Racism.
