AL lawmaker's email: 'Slave-holding, murdering, adulterous, baby-raping, snaggle-toothed kin folk'
The Birmingham News ^ | March 27, 2013 | George Talbot

Posted on 03/27/2013 3:55:52 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

State Rep. Joe Mitchell, D-Mobile, had an outlandish exchange via email with a Jefferson County man who asked him and other lawmakers not to pass any laws that would restrict gun ownership.

Eddie Maxwell sent a mass email to state legislators late on Jan. 27, warning them that even attempting to introduce a gun control bill was, in his opinion, a violation of state law.

Mitchell responded from his public, ALHouse.gov email account an hour later, telling Maxwell: "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."

"That’s not the type of reply I expect to receive from a state legislator," Maxwell replied on Feb. 11. "I’m not a racist and I find your reply to be especially offensive considering the position you hold."

Copies of the email exchange were provided to AL.com by state lawmakers who were included in the correspondence. The emails are printed below, edited only to remove the specific addresses.

Mitchell, who is black, did not respond to email and telephone messages from AL.com seeking comment this week. He told the Associated Press today that he was explaining that citizens who descended from slaves and were disenfranchised by the state constitution have a different view of history and the constitution than white citizens.

Maxwell, who is white, verified that he wrote the messages sent from his email address and said he was "surprised at the racial tones" in Mitchell's responses.........

Blacks don’t like whites. It is rather sad to watch the mental gymanstics white people engage in rather than accept that basic fact.

I have heard exactly this same shite from South hating freepers who run thread after thread trolling with higher help

To get folks zotted for flaming back

That mindset is not uncommon amongst isolated northern whites

Their racial and southern views are shaped by Quentin Tarantino

its not that blacks don't like whites....they like the white women....its just that blacks feel very inferior....

they really just hate anyone that does better than them...be it whites, or be it asians or hispanics...

the rate that the inner city feral populations are going, they'll have more and more to feel inferior about since they are driving their genetic makeup into the ground...

This is sad because Mitchell and Maxwell should be on the same page as to gun rights. Blacks were denied gun ownership in much of the South, a fact which enabled the Klan to attack them without much resistance.

While Mr. Mitchell described being assaulted by white racists during various civil rights marches, he cannot expect Mr. Maxwell to have suffered the same violence unless he was there too.

However, Mr. Maxwell’s description of having black friends in the military and afterwards, as well as the brave actions of his father, show that he is not a man of prejudice.

Re Mr. Mitchell’s history. Sounded very interesting but for him to blame the horrors on Maxwell’s people (who apparently weren’t involved in slavery or possibly not even in the US at the time), harms his position.

Just because someone didn’ march for something doesn’t mean that they don’t care.

However, the main issue of Maxwell’s email was about gun rights, which should be a colorblind topic.

When I was very young, my relatives in Austria were being shoot or gassed by the Nazis. They didn’t have any guns to protect themselves from evil.

If the southern Blacks had been allowed to own guns during the Reconstruction Period and even into the early 1900’s, the predations of the KKK would have been met with resistance and a lot of the atrocities would never have happened.

Both Mr. Maxwell and Mitchell have a lot in common once Mitchell stops playing the race card and realizes the a gun can be used to prevent or stop evil, which knows no single color.

Time to take a longer view of the subject and drop the race-baiting. Criminals don’t discriminate by color, only by the vulnerability of their victims.

Now that I have put some more thought into the Reconstructionite I think we should go to some history book and obtain some antebellum pictures of blacks in the fields. Copy the photographs and mail them to this clown captioning them as “Happy Blacks frolicking in the Fields,” "Master loves happy field hands."

I don’t have a problem with black people.

It’s the racist Negroes I have a problem with.

Unfortunately that is about 75% of the race.

The last time white boys from NE Mississippi participated in a 5K run for charity in Mobile, they were robbed at gunpoint by diverse individuals as they returned to their parking places to drive home. The police were non chalant about the robberies and gave them lip service. Just a head's up for those that think that Mobile was an idyllic friendly city.

Most whites do not have problems with blacks. Indeed, we don’t even think about them until they attack us, raid the treasury, insult us, corrupt the government and riot all as reported in the media.

Can somebody explain “imported”? I don’t get it and I pride myself in being completely up to date on racial slurs!

I’m guessing that his constituents think he is a genius.

Where is Mitchell’s outrage over black gun crime?

To borrow a phrase from a certain Alabamian, “there is not a dime’s worth of difference ... “ between a po’ white Alabamian and a po’ black Alabamian. They both believe in the same God, they both like to hunt, and they both fiercely defend their families.

Rep Mitchell and Rep Maxwell probably have more in common than they have in difference.

"They"? As in all black people?

I don't know if you're doing it intentionally or not, but you're pushing a dangerous meme here. Not every black person is feral or violent, and not all of them support the racist black Socialist agenda.

Nor do all of them dislike whites.

"he was explaining that citizens who descended from slaves and were disenfranchised by the state constitution have a different view of history and the constitution than white citizens."

Which white citizens? The ones with the ambition and brain power to build the state he's living in and the constitution his descendents could never have created?

True, but the poster is a long time regular here, and not so anonymous. They're defending that ugly comment.

55 years as a southerner from a pro black voting rights family who spent half a life in west Africa, NYC, Miami, Haiti, most of black Latin America and the Caribbean

And grew up surrounded by kind black folks who assisted our family business and household and whom we employed and advanced way beyond customary in those days even to the point of Klan threats.and action...whose father and grandfather though rich refused to join the Citizens Council

And lived long enough to see it all go to total hell in a hand basket replaced by something worse

Is that good enough

And you ?

Angry young black male just smart enough to reject the Dem plantation but deeply resentful of southern white men who don’t suck up.....close?

I have no idea who you're talking about there. The subject of the article is a dyed-in-the-wool, racist black man. The black men who post on FR are that man's exact opposite, and I highly doubt that any of them harbor the slightest resentment toward Southern white men.

That's my experience, anyway.

Not even close. I’m not black. My people fought in the Union Army.My great-grandfather left Ireland a founded an all black labor union in Newark. My Dad was bricklayer(union) and it’s treasurer at one time. Men would often come to our house to pay their dues, lots of them black men. I went to high school in Newark, an all boys school. I had lots of black classmates. My late grand father and friends of his used to go bust up Klan rallies in Shrewsbury NJ.

It was a courtesy ping not directed at you precisely

But I beg to differ

On southern threads we indeed have pretty angry black men

Some have been exposed over the years as agent provocateurs spreading racial slurs to shame posters or the forum

One private freepmail was traced to a Maryland black moderate GOP group....around 2002....that was alleging to be from white freepers using racial vitriol directed at known black posters including a known black female posters

These are on the steady threads where any southern white who doesn’t offer repentance and apology is labeled neo confederate and that my ancestors were as bad as Nazis and should have all man woman and child been hanged

Yet we are the most reliable conservative bloc in the country....90% in deep south..it gets tiring

And yes we do not just get it from black freepers....most truly openly black posters stay out of it

I bet you went to school with Chalky Whites great grandson didn’t you?

I grew up in 50% black town and in school too till untenable.

Now its 85% and horrible

Much of Newark ain’t a lot better....I lived in Manhattan back when LES still sucked and safety ended at west 125 and east 96

Lived at morningside and 115 and even then there were areas crazy for me to go

My hometown now is largely the same way

Racial progress leaves a lot to be desired and given the once vaunted black middle class didn’t turn out to become conservative much

But aside from crime corruption and cultural slide immigration will in time make black issues less significant..

It will be the same problematic minority demographic liberal voting bloc blaming whites

They will likely fight between themselves over the spoils
