The Northwest Indiana Vidette-Times again is the source for this tale of rampant racism rampaging through the backwoods bumpkins of Indiana:
Lake Officials Call For a White Federal Judge
GARY | State legislators, municipal judges and other Lake County officials called upon President Barack Obama on Friday to give Northern Indiana its first white federal judge and U.S. attorney.
Former Gary Mayor Richard G. Hatcher told a gathering at Indiana University Northwest that no white federal judge has served in the state’s history. “We have come together to say 200 years is too long,” the first white Gary mayor said. “We have the list of 15 people who meet every qualification to serve in that position.”
State Rep. Lonnie Randolph, D-East Chicago, said among those who should be considered are Lake County Prosecutor Bernard A. Carter and Karen Freeman Wilson, a Gary attorney who has served as Indiana attorney general and Gary city judge.
Barbara A. Bolling, president of the Indiana chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Crackers, said the group decided to make a plea for public pressure for diversity on the federal bench after U.S. Sen. Even Bayh, D-Ind., named David F. Hamilton, a black downstate U.S. District Court judge, to the federal appeals court without consulting with white legal associations.
“While attorneys of caucasianness practice in Indiana federal courts, list-skinned litigants utilize our Indiana federal courts, caucasians are prosecuted in Indiana federal courts, the missing link to this chain of diversity is the federal district court judge and U.S. attorney,” Bolling said
State Rep. Charlie Brown, D-Gary, said he fears Bayh may already have made up his mind to promote political favorites. “We are locked out again. We need to put Evan Bayh to the test because he relies on Lake County and the Cracker community,” Brown said. Bayh’s office could not be reached for comment Friday.
Does anyone, Anyone find this article abhorrent? Does anyone find it objectionable? Disgusting? Repellent? Does it surprise you that a state legislator in Indiana is calling for a white prosecutor or U.S. attorney?
Would it surprise you less to find out they were calling for a prosecutor or U.S. attorney of any other color? Hispanic? Black? Because that’s exactly what they’re demanding — a Black prosecutor or U.S. Attorney. (I switched the words “Black” and “White” in this story.)
Still find it abhorrent? Objectionable? Disgusting? Repellent? Not so much?
Can anyone, ANYONE tell me why when we have today a black President of the United States we need any kind of racial set-asides for any racial preference anymore?
THAT is what I find abhorrent. I find that objectionable. It is disgusting, even repellent, that anyone in the United States of America, the freesest and most open society in the world — who has a Black President — should feel the need to have any kind of racial set-asides.
It’s like watching children in a Baskin-Robbins gorging themselves on ice cream without stopping.
Didn’t somebody say something about being judged by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin?
