That's kind of funny, in a very racist way.

She'll be closer to Harriet Tubman, Mayor Peckerwood.  She scared the shiat out of your great-great grandpappy, just like Biden's VP pick will today.  There's your 'heritage."

"The Town of Luray rejects racism and is committed to working together with the community through understanding, compassion, and opportunity."

Nothing says 'rejects racism' like a mayor who posts a racist message on social media then refuses to apologise.

I like to think Jemima is her maiden name and she was married to Uncle Ben. Why she hid all their money from Peter Parker is a mystery.

I was thinking its funny that some asshole would say something like that thinking its ok and then double down when called out on it.

I think is is going to be Susan Rice, with a Harris AG. I am not sure I think Rice is right but in comparison to tRump I would accept a fresh dog turd.

Biden has nearly guaranteed that his VP will be a black woman.  I will give base inciivlity but racist or sexist?

What is this "AM radio"? Is it 1997 already?

Is this your first day on the internet?

The mayor reminds me of this yokel at work who thought the funniest thing he had ever come across on the internet, a meme during the Kavenaugh confirmation showing RBG with the hilarious headline, "CNN reporting the RBG has accused Abraham Lincoln of grouping her.....investigation to follow"

When it was my turn to see his latest "DUDE!! YOU GOTTA SEE THIS" I said "I don't get it....but, I guess I don't find humor in sexual assault"

Some folks don't understand that when they find racist/sexist shiate funny it's because they ARE a bit racist/sexist, they might not know it and may be asymptomatic in public, but their decisions are tempered by their lack of self-awareness none the less.

The aunt jemima thing was like 2 months ago. Conservatives, once again proving that not only are they not funny, they're also pathetically late to the party. I bet he has some timely knee-slappers about Jimmy Carter, too.
 
2020-08-06 6:47:47 AM  
Growing up and living around 20 miles from there, I'd like to say I'm shocked.  But I'm not at all.  He'll probably be elected to major for life after this.

Just glad the less mouth breathery parts of VA will keep the Commonwealth firmly in the anti-Dolt 45 Camp.

Just like FARK to fault a mayor with the perspicacity to be economically anxious for his constituents.

Saiga410: Biden has nearly guaranteed that his VP will be a black woman.  I will give base inciivlity but racist or sexist?


A character named "Aunt Jemima" appeared on the stage in Washington, D.C., as early as 1864.[15] Rutt's inspiration for Aunt Jemima was Billy Kersands' American-style minstrelsy/vaudevill​e song "Old Aunt Jemima", written in 1875. Rutt reportedly saw a minstrel show featuring the "Old Aunt Jemima" song in the fall of 1889, presented by blackface performers identified by Arthur F. Marquette as "Baker & Farrell".[2] Marquette recounts that the actor playing Aunt Jemima wore an apron and kerchief.[2][14]

If you are saying that any pick of Biden's is equivalent to a character that is a minstrel show slave mammy, you are racist as hell.

Langdon_777: I think is is going to be Susan Rice


There is nothing the right would love more than Susan Rice. In fact, they're encouraging him to pick her because they already got the attack ads lined up: A deep state operative from the corrupt and criminal Obama regime coming back to ban the suburbs.

They can re-litigate everything all over again and blame her for it: Benghazi, Jade Helm, Fast & Furious, buttery mails, Solyndra, tan suit, NSA spying, FEMA death camps, Obamacare.

Still a better VP than Pence.

Then I do not now who Biden will pick, he cannot have Harris or Warren. I look forward to being impressed by who ever he choices.

Does any of that have the slightest impact outside the Trump base? I can't imagine swing voters GAF.

So, the mayor believes his little town has no intelligent white people in it, and no black people at all? Got it.

And I'm sure his great-grandfather thought the annual town lynching was a great photo op and a learning experience for the kids.

If we are selecting VP by who the right won't attack we'll have to select Ivanka in blackface.

They're going to say that all regardless of who the pick is.  Biden could do a complete reversal of his nomination prospects and name Sebastian Gorka and they'll still start spouting the deep state bullshiat.

He picked an Aunt Jemima? Which one was it? Diamond? Silk? Candace Owens?

Guarantee you he's grousing about how nobody's got a sense of humor anymore and everyone should stop being so serious.

There's a type of white old fart that continues not to understand that the rest of society finds the casual racism & sexism he grew up with Not Farking Funny anymore and is clamping down hard on it.

The people that elected a mayor that would tell a joke like that, probably don't care what you think.  Mr. Mayor will find out next election if he runs.

I was thinking that it sounded like one of those "jokes" you encounter on right-wing message boards and FoxNews comments sections.
They're not clever, but people think they're brilliant.
I'd like to do a tour where you set up an Open Mic in towns across America and let bozos such as this out themselves in glorious, video-recorded fashion. That would have had to have been in the before times, of course.

"I thought it was humorous. I had no idea people would react the way they did. I think people have gone overboard on this ... It's an election year."

Dude, and there's your problem. You didn't think, you had no idea. That sort of disqualifies you for a leadership position when you can't read a damn room. Blaming everyone else? Likewise, sort of a disqualifier.

No. It would be funny if the joke was Trump dumping Pence for Aunt Jemima, because Republicans are still mad that the syrup lady was cancelled.

Very true. That doesn't mean I can't use his actions and words to form an opinion on what kind of person he is.

We should probably get rid of all human character branded products anyways, less chance at racism.

Sorry Little Debbie. I love your sugar snacks, but as my lunchtime friend I'd hope you would understand.

Does Benghazi still hold up though?  They'll go above
and beyond to find accountability for
The deaths of four diplomats but  with 150k dead Americans due to an incompetent virus response does it matter anymore?

A little early out of the gate there Mayor. They just cant wait to slime the VP pick with their misogynist and racist spew.

Biden should keep them waiting. Its driving them nuts.
