N.C. Commissioner Has No Regrets in Seeking ‘Non-White Male’ for Public Position
The Blaze ^ | 6/26/13 | Becket Adams

Posted on 06/29/2013 6:13:52 AM PDT by blueyon

Although some see it as a clear-cut case of race discrimination, Kim Ratliff, a County Commissioner in Mecklenburg County, N.C., doesn’t regret saying that the next county manager should be a “non-white male.”

Ratliff’s comments were made last Friday when she commented on the departure of longtime county manager Harry Jones, WISTV.com reports.

The County Commissioner said other county officials should learn from Jones’ tenure as county manager.

“There were some people the manager was not talking to. There were county commissioners who were not talking to the manager,” she said, adding that the future county manager must have open lines of communication with all colleagues.

She continued, saying that she’d like to see “someone who is diverse – hopefully someone outside of North Carolina would be ideal for me.” Ratliff added that the county needs a “non-white male who can good working relations with all people.”

Reverse Discrimination...I would hope she loses her job or is recalled but I doubt she will.

I wonder if she’ll give special consideration if a non-white male applies - WHO IS A FLAMING FAGGOT?

That ought to count for something, right?

Curious - there’s also a gender discrimination part to this... but we’re focusing on the face bit.

Of course not. She’s black and made the racist statement recently, has no regrets, and will not be hounded to apologize. No consequences.

Paula Deen—now her incident is much worse, right?

Yes, there is racism in this country, and every other country, and always will be. Where is most of it coming from in our country? The black community.

If the lame stream media doesn’t want to get worked up over racist statements and actions from blacks, I’m not going to be particularly concerned about those coming from whites.

As the Third World conquest of America progresses this blatant discrimination against whites will continue; as will assaults(the other day blacks beat up a white youth for his sneakers.-Drudge);killings, rapes, insults; loss of educational opportunities etc. etc.

The thing that is disgusting is that whites do nothing about it. I guess whites are sick in the moral or spiritual sense. Too busy eating, drinking, drugging, copulating, having a good bowel movement, snoring and attending "The Games" to attend to the on going conquest.

Kim Ratliff got elected as a Democrat stealth candidate, hiding on the all-Democrat election ticket. She remained invisible as other than a Democrat prior to being elected.

The reason for this is that she is a frequent flyer racist and antisemite, a supporter of “Reverend” Farrakhan, and so repugnant in her official actions that other politicians refuse to be seen with her.

Based on the tone of her comments I'm guessing she was one of the commissioners who was not talking to the manager. So maybe she's the one who need to work on establishing "a good working relationship with all people" and drop the racist crap.

So it is the fault of white county manager Harry Jones that racist black county commissioners won’t talk to him?

And the only solution they can think of is that the next county manager must be black.

“This county commission is broken and it is all the fault of that racist crazy-ass-cracker; the one we won’t talk to because he’s white.”

No. There was something just a week or two ago with those exact circumstances, some college group looking for a “diversity coordinator” or something like that. I’m too lazy to rummage around for it but I know it was recent.

“So it is the fault of white county manager Harry Jones... “

Ex-County Manager Harry Jones is a black man. He was actually fired by the County Commissioners.

If I wanted to be equally as racist as Ms. Ratliff, I would say “you had a non-white male in the position previously... how’d that work out for you?”

But, I’m not, so I won’t.

Quite a few “taxes” have run from Charlotte already (and continue to do so)... Union, Cabarrus, Iredell, Gastonia, York counties... all close with fairly easy road access.

Mecklenburg has a solid history of burying the producer class in taxes all for the sake of capital boondoggles.

No, we are not sick, that is why we have no desire to trash others or kill people. Meekness is strength under control, not weakness.

However this is the very same thing we put South Africa through when we forced anti-apartheid crap on them. Once South Africa had race problems and was a prosperous growing economy with rule of law. We forced racial preferential hiring on them and put the Blacks in charge. Now it has open and blatant racial persecution against whites, and is a poverty stricken violent, turd world hell hole.

EXACTLY what America is becoming, for exactly the same reasons.

Justice, God style.

You've got that right. I left the land of 8.25% sales tax and 7% state income tax 2 years ago. It would not have been so bad if the money were well spent, but it was not. The only thing well organized were certain voting precincts that voted in alphabetical order.

Your Statement: "No, we are not sick, that is why we have no desire to trash others or kill people. Meekness is strength under control, not weakness.

Response: After reading hundreds of reports of assaults against whites, hundreds of insults, killings and rapes(See Tennessee)thousands of instances of job and school discrimination even electing the very people doing the evil I stand by the statement that we are sick and unable to defend ourselves. Your statement is a rationalization for not resisting. Tell me about "tolerance & Love" when they are coming into your house or throwing Molotov cocktails. Chasing your daughters or wife. They are threatening us right now with death and fire if the Zimmerman trial does not go their way. They should be warned that if they give a riot we will show up, but as stated most would rather die than use force to control an unruly demographic and that is sick!

You carry a gun? Trust me, when I say meekness is power under control it includes the pistol in the pocket. I can and will pull the trigger IF I have to. Threaten my wife or my life and you will die. One to the hip, and if that is not enough two to the head.

My wife is proficient with semi and auto Rifles and she carries. She also has the will to pull the trigger.

Carry a pistol for a while, and you will understand meekness. The responsibility of the pistol in your pocket will make you meek, but not weak.

In the old days carry was the rule, and so were manners. There is a reason for that. So before you start railing on my attitude, better figure it out first.

All this flash mob crap is happening in no-carry areas simply because the Attackers are bullies and cowards.

Smith and Wesson is the great equalizer and an armed society is a polite one.

She is verbalizing a practice which has been going on in the South for a long time. Most towns and cities haven’t had a white chief of police in many years.

Last time I checked, communication was a two way street. My question is how many of the minority commissioners tuned the manager out because he was white?

Under Obama, Blacks everywhere have become entitled to whatever they want, whenever they want it. With Whitey out of the way, then the minority commissioners can get down to the business of divvying up the spoils of living in America while black.

This is just another form of reparations.

I live in Alaska now. Most people have guns, and know how to use them. There will be no riots here.

I have three zombie clips for my bear gun, I will take the first 50 or so out. My neighbor prefers the AK 47 for his zombie clips.

If your neighborhood is so bad, I suggest you move. Its not called surrender, its called retreat to a stronger position. If you live a block from Watts, come back in a couple of weeks after they have thinned each other out a bit.

I suspect that after the first night, gonna be a lot more humble people in EBT land. You been in a gun store lately and looked at the ammo shelves? It ain’t gang bangers buying rounds.

This is blatant racism.

I am of the opinion we need to start ramping down the reverse-racism now.

As in, obliterating the laws requiring it.

No more laws in favor of a gender. No more laws in favor of a race. Zero-out all of them.

America is now color-blind. Let’s make it that way, for real.

We have a lot of blacks in our area. Hence, if they do riot and loot I may have to be involved. I’ll stay indoors. However, if any darkie tries to burn my house or hurt me or my little wife I will kill them. I hope the NSA or FBI reads this post as they had better tell the “rioters” to “cool it!” The end of “tolerance” may be coming.
