We live in strange times. The wingnuts actually think it’s cute to be openly racist. Over and over, they keep saying “c’mon, it’s just funny.”
Mayor is criticized for White House
watermelon patch e-mail
LOS ALAMITOS – The mayor has sent an apology for an e-mail sent to a local businesswoman and community volunteer that she says is racist and offensive.
Keyanus Price, an African American, said she was appalled when she received an e-mail from Mayor Dean Grose’s personal account that showed a picture of the White House with a watermelon patch imposed as the White House garden.
“I was horrified when I read that e-mail,” Price said. “What I’m concerned about is how can this person send an e-mail out like this and think it is OK?”
Being a public official, Price said, made the matter worse…
Grose’s e-mail included the picture with a heading that read, “No Easter Egg hunt this year.”
