Calif. City Councilman Sends Racist Emails to Staff, Citizens

Jul 17, 2009 | Posted by: Iria | Full story: snafu-ed.blogspot.com

California is a Blue state, but there is still plenty of Red in it, particularly in the central portions of the state. The Merced Sun-Star reports on an Atwater, CA city councilman who sent racist jokes about President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, and black people in general to prominent citizens in the town.

Another example of ignorance, another nail in the coffin, another splinter in the GOP plank - even a comedian couldn't make this garbage up.

He's a fat greasy racist and I volunteer to tie him to my truck and drag him around for awhile and then piss on his wounds.

Libs pretend to be outraged yet I see them calling white people crackers and rednecks all the time around here.

If blacks want respect they have to be willing to show it also.

I guess the liberal media is unfairly attacking the poor and defenseless right again. I assume that it will be GOP leadership like that that will resurrect the right from the dead to bring them back into power in 2010 and 2012. I wonder if I should be laughing at a racist joke about the President of the United States? Surely this is out of character for the racially insensitive, majority White, hate mongering imploded republican Party. I think it is time to put all the GOP back in power starting with this bigot, then Micheal Steele with Sarah Palin and Dick Cheney.

No Liberal will call Barbara Boxer a racist for insulting Harry C. Alford, of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, now will they?

Alford: "What does that mean?"

Boxer: "Sir, we're going to put that in the record..."

Alford: "What does that mean, though? The NAACP has a resolution, what does that mean?"

It then got very testy.

Boxer: "Sir, they could say the same thing about what do you mean..."

Alford: "I've got documentation."

Boxer: "Sir, they passed it. They passed it. Now, also, if that isn't interesting you to we'll quote John Grant, who is the CEO of 100 Black Men of Atlanta." [She goes on to read quote.]

Alford: "I've got documentation."

Boxer: "Sir, they passed it. They passed it. Now, also, if that isn't interesting you to we'll quote John Grant, who is the CEO of 100 Black Men of Atlanta." [She goes on to read quote.]

Alford: "Madam Chair, that is condescending to me. I'm the National Black Chamber of Commerce and you're trying to put up some other black group to pit against me."

Boxer: "If this gentlemen were here he would be proud that he was being quoted."

Alford: "He should have been invited!"

Boxer: "...just as he would be proud.."

Alford: "It is condescending to me."

Boxer: "...he's proud, I'm sure, that I am quoting him."

Alford: "All that's condescending, and I don't like it. It's racial. I don't like it. I take offense to it. As an African-American and a veteran of this country, I take offense to that!"

As Boxer tried to explain her point, Alford grew angrier:

Alford: "We are referring to the experts regardless of their color. And for someone to tell me, an African-American, college-educated veteran of the United States Army that I must contend with some other black group and put aside everything else in here -- this has nothing to do with the NAACP and really has nothing to do with the National Black Chamber of Commerce. We're talking energy and that road the chair went down, I think, is god-awful."

Yes once again the moron speaks about the right and it's so-called racism while ignoring the so-called racism of the left,as well does the liberal media. I don't expect you will comment on what you are shown,but will rather slither away as before when confronted with real words and real actions. http://www.youtube.com/watch... and http://www.youtube.com/watch...

You're a bit mistaken--Frago is an elected official serving ALL people. Comedians (black or white) do it to get a reaction. Mr. Fargo is not a comedian and should probably start looking for a job.

What the hell is your point?

You think random acts of racism from black individuals somehow excuses an elected official sending out crude racist jokes to his constituents?

The first link references the "zionist media" keeping things quiet. Does this mean you're anti-black AND anti-jew??

More importantly, what did you think of the emails this councilman sent?

Why do you people have to excuse racism from your side by explaining it away as "Well they do it"

Come on people, any racist email from anyone is offensive.

The e-mails are wrong plain and simple. The problem with liberals is the double standard. Black and hispanic racist are ignored or written off,white racist are paraded through the media circus. Hate crime laws are aimed primarily at straight whites to protect gays and minorities,which is rather funny considering whites make up the majority of the population and have the lower crime stats. Blacks have the highest rates of murder in America,and it isn't the Klan,the Ayran Nations,the skinheads or any other white racist groups killing so many blacks,it other BLACKS. The liberal media would have you believe every white christian conservative has a robe and pointy hat in thier closet,take the blinders off and think for yourself. And one more point: It isn't random acts of violence,it's staggering numbers going on daily.
