Atlanta, Georgia (CNN) - A squabble at a council meeting in a small Georgia town has caught the attention of the NAACP after a white councilman told his black counterpart that he should be working in a cotton field.
The exchange took place in a recent city council meeting near Macon, Georgia, said Larry Holmes, the president of the NAACP in Houston County.
This should not be a shock to us this is what rupublican tea party is all about
We living in Tea party era so what do expect past one year we hearing same kind of comments
Good Heavens!~We[as in EVERY thinking,caring American]have GOT to STOP this sort of thing from spreading~if we dont want to return to the unrest of the `60s~and SURELY we want to focus on better things for our country and our children!
And the white guy still has a job?
America, wake up...this is 21st century.......not 16th century...kick the butts...o.k...if you talk like this....
The counsel should demand resignation from the person that made this comment. And if resignation is not readily handed over, then expulsion of this person should be demanded by the local citizens. This kind of (so called leadership), is not needed. It never was needed, and it should never be accepted from anyone.
The weary old rigth-wing tactic of being racist and saying it's not racism, that it's something else. I'm surprised he didn't do part two of the usual lame right-wing tactic: to counter-accuse of being the "real" racist.
Lame, lame, lame. And so many Americans are so gullible that they will fall for it.
I don't believe anything the NAACP says anymore. They have lost their creditability.
sadly, i am not shocked
