      Law firm response:

      We were sorry to see this comment. Throughout his career, Norman B. Smith has been a tireless advocate for civil rights. In 1978, he received a statewide award for his work on behalf of individual freedoms and civil rights, work that continues to this day.

      As a Female Afro-American Honorable USAF Veteran/NC Real Estate Broker who gave my all to help my fellow man JL Goodwin with Peace, Love, and help working his Real Estate Businesses as He requested;"A True Share of Love". Norman Smith advertise he stands up for Civil Rights, but he proved himself a liar to James and I. Biracial Marriage of Love and Peace. Norman just could not break away from the apple pie/front porch/white only ignorance and defend Our Rights as he was hired and agreed to do!
