Pot, Meet Kettle

Das Raaaaciss!

A black member of the Alabama legislature uncorked a racist tirade in an email this week to a constituent who urged him not to embrace new gun control laws - copying his incendiary language to every member of the state legislature.

Joseph Mitchell, a Democrat who has represented parts of the city of Mobile since 1994 and ran for re-election unopposed in 2010 and 2006, castigated a voter named Eddie Maxwell, a Jefferson County man whom he correctly presumed was white.

‘Hey man,’ Mitchell wrote. ‘Your folk never used all this sheit [sic] to protect my folk from your slave-holding, murdering, adulterous, baby-raping, incestuous, snaggle-toothed, backward-a**ed, inbreed [sic], imported criminal-minded kin folk.’

Wow, and he still has his job? You’ve got to be kidding me.

[constituent Maxwell replied to this rant stating that he was not racist and that this kind of response was ... unexpected, to say the least. ]

Mitchell kept the thread going, continuing to copy all his legislative colleagues and insisting that it’s impossible for a black man to be a racist.

‘Historically, violence on Black folk was committed by White folk,’ he insisted. ‘It’s a fact but is it “racist?” It is “racial.“‘

‘A person without the power to exercise a threat cannot be a racist because he or she will be eliminated. A person who can, by merely stepping back on the sidewalk ore [sic] being quiet can support racism and benefit from the ‘first hired,’ affirmative action, preferential treatment fostered by systemic racism and bigotry.’

Mitchell ended his email with the taunting sign-off: ‘Lock and load’

Yeah, you know, a “person without power”, like a 5th term, 17 year veteran member of the state legislature. Another Poor Brutha, being kept down by the bad ole White Man. In cracka lovin’, sister bangin’, 7 fingers, banjo pickin’, mutha fuckin’, Ala-Klana-bama. Totally Raaaciss!

Seems to me that “lock and load” sign-off is some kind of implied threat of violence. A terroristic call for a race war. An expression of rabid hatred, of genocidal anger, against a person of a different skin color. Really, Alabama, is this the kind of person that runs your government? Is this the modern Deep South? Tables turned but now with extra hate?

Funny thing ... I had to go to ENGLAND to find this news story. Pity old Mitchell wasn’t a Republican, or White (yeah, like they have either of those in Alabama, right Bubba-Ray?) because if he was, then this story would be on the top of the hour on every news station in the Western Hemisphere, and at the top of the page on every last newspaper. And the crowds of tens of thousands would be riding the buses down to Mobile to protest and riot. AND YOU KNOW THAT I AM RIGHT. That is exactly what would happen.

Because racism only works in one direction.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
