Black Democrat legislator sends racist tirade to constituent

Rate this post

I can’t remember a time in my life when race relations in America are as ugly as they are today, after four years of Obama’s much-vaunted “post-racial” presidency.
A black member of the Alabama legislature, Joseph Mitchell, responded with a racist tirade to an email (from a white constituent) asking the legislator not to embrace new gun control laws. To top it off, Mitchell copied his tirades to every member of the state legislature.

David Martosko reports for Daily Mail, March 27, 2013, that one of Mitchell’s constituents, Eddie Maxwell, wrote a polite email to Mitchell, asking him and other members of the Alabama legislature to keep state gun laws in step with the Second Amendment to the US Constitution, which guarantees citizens access to firearms.
Maxwell urged Mitchell: “Do not violate your oath of office by introducing additional gun control bills or by allowing those already enacted to remain in the body of our laws.”
Mitchell wrote back: “Hey man. 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.”
The exchange was first reported by Mobile’s Press-Register and provoked outrage on Yellow Hammer Politics, an Alabama-based conservative political blog.
In his email to Maxwell, Mitchell also suggested that he favored arming black Alabamians before enforcing new gun-control measures, in case they needed to defend themselves from racist white southerners:
“You can keep sending me stuff like you have however, because it helps me explain to my constituents why they should protect that 2nd amendment thing AFTER we [blacks] finish stocking up on spare parts, munitions and the like. Bring it. As one of my friends in the Alabama Senate suggested – ‘BRING IT!!!!'”

Accused: Eddie Maxwell, pictured, replied back to Mitchell by defending himself as not racist and offended by his accusation, especially coming from someone in officeEddie Maxwell

Eddie Maxwell is a retired coal miner who resides in Jefferson County.
In his email to Rep. Mitchell, Maxwell expressed his objection to amending the state constitution with new gun laws “when the change is forbidden by the people.” Maxwell reminded Mitchell that “You have sworn to support our constitution. Do not violate your oath of office by introducing additional gun control bills or by allowing those already enacted to remain in the body of our laws.”
After reading Mitchell’s racist tirade, Maxwell sent another follow-up email:
“That’s not the type of reply I expect to receive from a state legislator. I’m not a racist and I find your reply to be especially offensive considering the position you hold.
My parents and grandparents taught me to love God and my fellow man as myself. My father was threatened by members of his church back in 1954 for inviting a black family to attend the church he pastored.
My father-in-law was threatened when he hired a young negro man to work in his shop back in 1968 in a community where several neighbors were members of the Ku Klux Klan. He didn’t allow those threats to keep him from treating people of all races equally.
Racism is not exclusive to my own people. I learned that before 1955. It is just as ugly now as it was then, regardless of the race of the person who is consumed by it.”
To which, the black state legislator responded by insisting that it’s impossible for a black man to be a racist. Mitchell wrote:
“Historically, violence on Black folk was committed by White folk. 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”
Neither the Daily Mail nor the Press-Register got responses when they reached out to Mitchell’s office for comment.
But Maxwell told the Press-Register that he had no regrets about challenging his elected representative: “It just makes me more determined that we the people need to stay involved. It’s up to us as citizens to watch our government.”
Maxwell also told the Press-Register that two other members of the state legislature have reached out to him to register their shock about their colleague’s language. Democratic state Rep. Patricia Todd of Birmingham wrote him: “This member hears you loud and clear. I just received this chain of emails and wanted to let you know that I am with you on the gun issue and am saddened by the tone of my colleague’s email. All of us have suffered from the racism of the past and I thank you for your civic and thoughtful response.”
Maxwell added that he was hopeful that Mitchell would be sanctioned by his fellow lawmakers.
Joe Mitchell has represented parts of the city of Mobile since 1994 and ran for re-election unopposed in 2010 and 2006.

  1. Black racial hatred of white people has always been very high. That’s just the way they are. That legislator needs to be removed from office as an example to others that black racial hatred will not be tolerated any more than white racial hatred. But the fact is he won’t even get a slap on the hand.

  2. Gee , I do believe that the azzhole pol in ALA. has a chip on his shoulder the size of Stone Mtn. Loose the attitude pal . You were elected to serve ALL of your constiuency , not just the bro’s w / the fro’s !

  3. And THAT is why I have removed the word, “folk,” from my vocabulary. Every time I hear it, I have to stomp down images of Woody Guthrie, President Obama, Louis Farrakhan, Reverend Wright, and Father Fleeger.
    I used to like Woody Guthrie until I realized that “This land is your land” really meant “Your land is my land.”

  4. Some day the black community hopefully will get a clue.that they are their own worst enemy. People that were sold in to slavery were done so by their own tribal chiefs in Africa. Welfare is now a form of slavery and they have raised multiple generations on it. But nothing is done about that. I for one am so tired of the same old BS. Does anyone ever take ownership of their own dysfunction?

    • There has been slavery from time immemorial and you rightly say that socialism is another re-brand on slavery. Most of us are slaves on this plantation.

      the Jones plantation.

  5. Now we need to coin the phrase “Low information legislators”. This is so disgustingly ignorant and should be a huge embarrassment to ALL but more than likely he will get away with that kind of behavior and a week from now it will all be forgotten. If the situation was reversed, Maxwell would have been out office before the “send” key reached its normal height again.

  6. Here’s this racist politician’s viewpoint, spelled out by Rev Michael Pfleger at Trinity UCC, Hillary thinks “I’m white I’m entitled”

  7. Can we write Mitchell’s name on a piece of paper, think about what he represents, and then stamp on it? please, please, please . . .
    It’s the bald-faced arrogance that gets me, they’ve stopped lying to us.

  8. I cringe because I USED to be a member of the UCC.. I still work for a nursing home affiliated with them… and gasp.. will be collecting a pension from them.. just like the Rev. J Wright… sorry

  9. Islam still practices and uses slavery all over North Africa and not a word about it from the “enlightened ones”, Hilary and buddies.

  10. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this interesting post. The hatred motivated by the king and his regime creates such unconscienable communications, notwithstanding that this person is supposed to be a legislator representing people of all races. It is just sickening!

  11. Jackass.

  12. Such civility….

  13. When I think of how far we’ve come since 1965, and how the Racist in Chief has completely reversed these gains, I want to weep.

  14. This guy Mitchell is like so many , black, white Hispanic liberals. When they don’t kbnow what to say; they find a way to bring race into the conversation. I don’t even knwo why I call it conversation, because liberals have no inclination for conversing. They preach, rant, and generally let their emotions get in the way of doing their job as a representative.
