Ga. mayor says city 'isn't ready' for black employee,

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


HOSCHTON, Ga. (AP) — The mayor and a council member in a mostly white north Georgia city are facing calls to resign over racially charged comments.

At issue is how Mayor Theresa Kenerly treated a black candidate for the city administrator job in Hoschton.






In documents released by the city, Councilwoman Hope Weeks wrote that the mayor told her Keith Henry was a good candidate "but he was black and we don't have a big black population and she just didn't think Hoschton was ready for that."

Kenerly said she doesn't recall saying that.

According to census data, Hoschton is 84.6 percent white and the black population makes up 3.5 percent of the city. At last count, the city had 1,782 residents. 

At a tense city council meeting Monday, Councilwoman Susan Powers called for resignations of the mayor and her fellow Councilman Jim Cleveland.

Cleveland earlier told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he abhors interracial marriage because he's a Christian.

It would seem that racism is alive and well in Hoschton Georgia. They don't want a black employee in a predominantly white town and a councilman is still citing his conservative religious beliefs to oppose interracial marriage.

Is this an example of when America was great?

More evidence of the damage done to America by our current President who has declared bigotry and prejudice an endangered species that needs to be protected and saved. He has empowered those who have remained silent for decades for fear of being outed as the racists they are, but now given cover they once again ruffle their superiority with wanton abandon. They think to themselves "Well if the President of the United States can 'tell it like it is', then I'm going to openly declare by beliefs as well even if they aren't 'PC'..."

...and they would argue what is wrong in calling a spade a spade? He has undoubtedly emboldened those living in the shadows to express their ignorant intentions. Excusing it makes it all the more despicable.

Who are the racist liberals and what are their racist stances?

Defending the alt-right isn't a sign of racism for you?  Why is Stephen Miller on his staff if Trump isn't a racist? 

Trump Defends White-Nationalist Protesters: 'Some Very Fine People on Both Sides'

Speaking in the lobby of Trump Tower at what had been billed as a statement on infrastructure, a combative Trump defended his slowness to condemn white nationalists and neo-Nazis after the melee in central Virginia, which ended in the death of one woman and injuries to dozens of others, and compared the tearing down of Confederate monuments to the hypothetical removal of monuments to the Founding

Stephen Miller is a racist to his core,

Miller told a colleague, “I would be happy if not a single refugee foot ever again touched American soil”; and a middle-school classmate, that they couldn’t be friends anymore because of the classmate’s “Latino heritage.”

He, Miller, is the little Nazi bastard responsible for the immigrants being separated from their families, all the horrors against these families, that the turd in chief eagerly signed on to.

Are you saying that he didn't say it? 

Why did he need to return the next day with a PC statement and claim that he was misunderstood?

He is also anti-immigration, despite the fact that his grandparents were asylum seekers from Russia in the early 1900s.  Should we be surprised that a bigoted racist is also a hypocrite?

Stephen Miller — a principal architect of the Trump administration’s immigration policy — is the descendant of asylum seekers who escaped anti-Jewish persecution in Eastern Europe.

You can openly declare your beliefs all you want but discriminating against a person because of race is illegal and you can rest assured there will be a lawsuit.  This guy won't need to work for the city because the city will soon be paying him to not work.

Hoschton is one of those incredible little, towns off of I-85 in north GA that would not exist but for the Interstate which supports

a few gas stations and restaurants in Braselton GA immediately off of I-85 with Hoschton a 2.8 square mile residential area next door.

The zip code covers parts of 4 counties...

I changed a fuel filter in the parking lot of an Auto parts place there many years ago.

They're still waiting for the South to rise again.

Linndale, on the near southwest side of Cleveland, would not exist if it wasn't for I-71. It's a well-known speed trap, despite the fact that the cops need to leave town to get on the highway and have to exit the highway in another town because the city only fronts the highway for about 1/2mile.   Their cops actions cause crashes on the highway when people who aren't familiar with their tactics slam on the brakes.

I wonder if they would have a problem hiring a white male for this same job if they knew that he was a member of the 'Klan?

Being pubically outed as bigots is the first step to ending racism. This is why the Klan wore hoods to hide their identity.

Agree  all bigots religious, race, sexual preference, should be called out and even the soft bigotry of low expectations. Things like blacks are too stupid to get photo ID's it all must stop.
