National Press Virtually Ignores Ala. Legislator's Racist Rant, Grilling of Pro-Life Bill's Sponsor

Alabama Democratic State Representative Alvin Holmes, who recently created a firestorm by calling Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas "a very prolific Uncle Tom," was at it again on Tuesday.

This time, the issue at hand was a "fetal heartbeat" bill restricting abortions. Holmes, who apparently needs no help seeing racism in just about anything, claimed, in the words of Kala Kachmar at the Montgomery Advertiser, that "99 percent of the white legislators in the chamber would raise their hand to say they're against abortion, and that same 99 percent would make their daughters get an abortion if they were impregnated by a black man." Holmes was also robbed of his wallet and $300 earlier in the week. Guess which story was worthy of coverage at the Associated Press? With rare exceptions, the rest of the U.S. press also appears to have ignored Holmes' raging racism.

... "You ain't gonna have no little black baby if you got two other white children, and then she's gonna have a little black baby running around there in the living room or in the den with the rest of them," he said. "They're not going to let that happen. You know that and I know that."

Holmes, D-Montgomery, also said he'd mortgage his house and bring $100,000 in cash — in a briefcase — tomorrow if anyone could show "a whole bunch of whites" who have adopted black children in Alabama.

Holmes also felt the need to personally grill the bill's sponsor with insulting questions:

Holmes asked (Republican Mary Sue) McClurkin if she would let her daughter have a black baby, and when she said yes, asked what she'd do with it after it was born.

"Let it run around in my living room and enjoy it as my grandchild," she said.

"With them other little blond children running around there?" Holmes said.

If Holmes meant what he said about mortgaging his house, he'd better make an appointment with a lender this week, because "House Speaker Mike Hubbard said a little later that they'd identified more than 200 white families (in Alabama) who adopted black children." I'd say that's a "whole bunch," Mr. Holmes.

KEYWORDS:
The racist prick gets to decide what the definition of a whole bunch is. And we all know "them other" 200 white families won't meet the definition. Just aks him.

I can’t believe he’s still around — had my first exposure to him in the 1970s while stationed in Montgomery. He was a blithering racist idiot then and he has not changed a bit.

Right. But it isn’t racist to just murder them in massively disproportionate numbers.
