First, there was that awful monkey cartoon (for which Murdoch stupidly took full responsibility for) then there’s the Watermelon email.
From Associated Press: The mayor of Los Alamitos is coming under fire for an e-mail he sent out that depicts the White House lawn planted with watermelons, under the title “No Easter egg hunt this year.
Local businesswoman and city volunteer Keyanus Price, who is black, said Tuesday she received the e-mail from Mayor Dean Grose’s personal account on Sunday and wants a public apology.
“I have had plenty of my share of chicken and watermelon and all those kinds of jokes,” Price told The Associated Press. “I honestly don’t even understand where he was coming from, sending this to me. As a black person receiving something like this from the city-freakin’-mayor – come on.”
And so, he resigned. Good riddance.
This is a Sign of Desperation
I think Bush administration time help brings out these racist homophobic sexist religious fundamentalist bigots in our country who were hiding in their holes and caves back when Clinton was in office. Now when it’s cool to be not be politically correct again, thanks to Fox News pundits, they had absolute ball.
But now, Bush is gone, most of them have the sense to run back into their holes again. Some of them just didn’t run fast enough or they are too much of an idiot to realized that their time in daylight is over.
Just imagine a bunch of rats running away from the rain back into the sewer. This is just one of those few retarded rats that stayed behind.
Where Have Guys Like These Been Hiding? Are They Always Here?
Problem is, racists like this moron are everywhere. Hiding. People who are not minority may not realized it, it is okay. It’s good that the media hide their existence to show that their views are not acceptable. BUT, that is not reality. Even in DC and Manhattan.
They may not be dumb enough to write a big N word on a wall, but they discriminate in other ways. When they approve housing, when they are hiring, etc. And unlike this particular circumstances, no one will ever know.
