Should A  White County Sheriff Who "Occasionally" Uses The N Word Automatically Resign From Office ?


A white county sheriff or local police chief admits to using the n-word on occasion but says everyone does it and it is not a big deal. Should he quit his job, or tough it out ?

Arkansas sheriff says he only uses the N-word 'occasionally' as he denies racism allegations

...When asked if he’s used racial slurs in the past, Prarie County Ark. Sheriff Rick Hickman replied, “Probably, in the past, but you know it is what it is. Everybody does."

“I don’t use the N-word a lot but occasionally, I might have said it," he added.

CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper   called for Hickman to resign   in light of his comments about the N-word: “Someone who admits to using racist slurs is clearly unfit to protect and serve a diverse population. We urge Sheriff Hickman to resign and instead pursue a career that does not impact the lives of minority communities.”

Assuming there is a competent deputy sheriff there who doesnt use the n word, then yes the sheriff should resign.

And the odds of that would be?  It is Prairie County, Arkansas, home of Peckerwood Lake (true story).

Agreed.  A sheriff should lead his deputies by example.  Allowing racism is not an example to follow, and use of the "N" word is nothing but racist.

Not to mention clueless, tone-deaf, or just simply wrong…particularly coming from any one, at any time, or in any way in an official capacity.

That made me curious so i went and looked it up.

 It appears that 48 of the 50 states have a county sheriffs position , the exceptions are Alaska which has no counties governments  and Conn which did away with the county Sheriff system back in 2000. 

now some of the places that don't have a county sheriff per say , are the populated US territories since they do not have county government systems and the federal district of DC. In the cases where they dont have sheriffs the personnel are usually called state or judicial marshals .

Sheriffs in the United States - Wikipedia

fairly easy explanation is there and goes into the different types of sheriffs duties could be dependent on location .

 The article did mention there were a few places that appointed their sheriffs , but that is not the norm as explained in the article and the article did not state where they are appointed ..

My wife is Asian and has come across several instances of blacks hurling racist slurs to her.

She even had one accuse her of using racist terms at work, but after an investigation, it was found the black that made the accusations had a history of false accusations and finally was fired for it.

John, how do you explain pretty much all attacks on Asians in big liberal cities were by blacks? Was that whitey' s fault?

Most Blacks are racist, and it has nothing to do with the white man

I am disparaging people who think their personal outrage should outweigh the collective will of voters.  This includes the morons who called for Trump's resignation for 4 years and the morons calling for Biden's now. 

I am defending the voters and the system that enables them to choose their own officials.

Yep, and if they were not aware of the words he occasionally uses they probably are now.  If they don't like the job he is doing, feel he is actually racist or his occasional use of the word is that repugnant they can vote him out.  I have a funny feeling that the people that want him to resign are not the people that voted for him to begin with.

Bottom line it is up to the people of the county to determine, not people from around the country or any special interest group that may be looking for any reason to get rid of anyone they don't like.

Absolutely.  If the voters think this man should be recalled, I'm sure there is a mechanism for doing so.

Alternatively, they can simply choose somebody else at the next general election.

BTW, this concept expands across vast swathes of American life.  For example...if the town council votes to remove the Robert E Lee statue from the local park, that is a perfectly right and proper use of the powers entrusted to them by the voters.   If a group of protesters knock it down, that's criminal vandalism.  

We have systems in place designed to ensure self-governance.  Demands to circumvent those systems are demands for American citizens to abandon that power.

“Probably, in the past, but you know it is what it is. Everybody does." “I don’t use the N-word a lot but occasionally, I might have said it,"

If his answer had been “Probably, in the past, but now after recognizing it for the racial slur it is I would not use such language." “I no longer use the N-word but occasionally, in the past, I might have said it," I think the answer to the question would be "No, he should not resign since its something he's taken responsibility for and has now changed".

The problem I have with what he said is that he downplayed it's offensiveness by saying "you know it is what it is" and deflected his responsibility with "Everybody does" and then went on to speak in current terms stating “I don’t use the N-word a lot but occasionally" which is admitting that he still uses an offensive racial slur to refer to black Americans. If he was just your average conservative making such statements then the "occasional" racial slur is expected, but as county Sheriff it gives him a position of power over any black residents in the community he serves and the use of such language could indicate possible bias in his execution of the law.

Due to that I would say "yes" he should resign, though I've no doubt there are likely many conservatives who think nothing of the "occasional" use of racial slurs and would never want to punish someone else for something they know they do all the time in private.

Like I said, he admits to using it not just in the past but now, as he stated “I don’t use the N-word a lot but occasionally".

My point was that based on his own confession he is still using the word and doesn't think it's a big deal which is likely a feeling shared by those averse to change and hold to supposed "traditional values".

Not every white person who has used the N word is a racist. This Sheriff might deal with thousands of black folks but has only ever referred to a half dozen or so of the lowest most scumbag pieces of shit black criminals as N words. I remember a time when black folks did the same thing, back then they didn't call their friends N words they only ever used it to refer to the lowest of the low dirtbags. As long as he isn't going around calling people that word to their face or referring to them using that word on duty and he's treating every race equally and respectfully while doing his job then it shouldn't matter what he has said in the past in the heat of the moment while venting about a hard day dealing with a real scumbag. If saying a word is a crime it must be a crime for everyone and if every white person who has ever uttered a racial epithet should lose their job then the same should be true for all other races.

does that ever justify the use of the N word

I don't have to justify it but I can accept that it happens and be realistic about it. I don't use it myself and I don't recommend using it but I'm not going to judge anyone who does any more harshly than I would a Black Guy who calls a White Guy a cracker when he's pissed at the guy. If you go around calling a whole Race racial epithets then you're probably a racist but if you call one person a racial epithet because they really pissed you off then you likely just have a problem with that one guy. Many people have given up common sense and embraced "Wokeness" but I'll stick with common sense and be realistic. Show me a Black Guy who says he's never said an anti-white racial epithet and I'll show you a liar, but I won't demand that he resign from his job because it is what it is.

Come on up to Harrison Arkansas in Boone county Sheriff, ya'll fit right in. Here's a billboard that you'd love, it's right on Highway 65 as you're comin into Harrison.

Our little town is also the National headquarters for the KKK.

Is that a Methodist symbol? I am kinda upset if it is. I grew up Methodist.

The cross???  Nah - don't think the Methodists have a patent on that.

A lot of them have versions of the cross they use to identify certain denominations.

Kind of comical they would have a dove of peace on their cross.

Or is that a peacock...
