Dishonor Everywhere, But Who Cares??????
A decorated Vietnam veteran, scholar, and father, Curtis E. Dixon hoped to live a comfortable, fulfilling life in his hometown of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. For nineteen years, he performed managerial and operational duties within and outside his area of expertise in an outstanding manner with the City. But false and degrading comments from Deputy City Manager John P. Bond changed his career forever.
Dishonor Everywhere, But Who Cares is the frightening true story of how one man's honor and reputation was systematically destroyed through the spiteful actions of a select group of individuals. In a tangled mixture of discrimination, racism, and office politics, Dixon filed a grievance against his employer. Reeling from daily harassment that affected his health, Dixon had no recourse but to file a lawsuit against the city.
When the case went to trial in 1984, Dixon was confident the truth would be revealed. Unfortunately, the media refused to cover the Dixon trials, and deals were made outside of the courtroom that negatively affected the outcome. Dixon's case was eventually dismissed by all levels of the federal and state judicial systems except the state appeals court level. After the above, City Manager Stuart terminated Dixon's employment with the city in 1989, citing the same types of false reasons that were used throughout his court proceedings.
Dishonor Everywhere, But Who Cares tells Dixon's side of the story, warts and all, and Reveals a corrupt web of betrayal from elected officials and a large cast of Dixon's neighbors, co-workers and fellow citizens. Dixon's candor reveals a determination to set the record straight and to finally let the truth speak for itself.
