Oh Freakin' Great! Another BLACK Family Living In Government Housing!

Alaska officials exchanged racist emails about Barack Obama - Telegraph

Quote:
Alaska officials exchanged racist emails about Barack Obama
Alaska has launched an investigation after state officials emailed each other racist jokes about President-elect Barack Obama using government computers.


Quote:
One of the five emails obtained by the Associated Press news agency asks about the outcome of the Democrat's victory after all the time and money invested. It concludes: "Another black family living in government housing!"

The existence of three of the racist messages were confirmed by the state's information technology division after an electronic search of the government's email system.

Annette Kreitzer, Alaska's administration commissioner, said: "It's embarrassing to the state."

She said that she had alerted the office of Governor Sarah Palin - the failed Republican vice presidential candidate - about the emails.

Bill McAllister, Mrs Palin's spokesman, said that the matter concerned individual actions taken by a handful of state employees among thousands.

"My understanding is that the department of administration is following up on this with the individuals who took action to forward the offensive emails," he said in an emailed statement. "This is, of course, a confidential personnel and disciplinary matter that has nothing to do with the governor's office."

The Rev Alonzo Patterson, state chairman of the Alaska Black Leadership Conference, encouraged Mrs Palin to comment on the offending emails.

"They're doing that in a state setting," he said. "She should condemn it."

Officials have not released the names or positions of the staff involved.

It appears that the original emails were sent to state employees from outside the government computer system, but that some state employees then forwarded them internally.
I was watching this report on CNN at school this morning. Let me tell you, it is so hard not to laugh about something like this when you're black and there's black students around you and you are fearful of being branded as an Uncle Tom.

Well, my opinion is really not as "Oh! How dare they!" but more so is "This is why stupid people shouldn't have power". They know that this will cause controversy, but like the morons they are, they did it anyway!

I wonder if the White House Chef can make some tasty Soul Food.

Re: Oh Freakin' Great! Another BLACK Family Living In Government Housing!

I think its a pretty normal thing to do. I have a lot of black friends and I am far from racist, but I always joke about other races, including my own. Its just a fun thing to do, and I am in no way embarrassed about it. They should receive no punishment for something like this.

I had to do it. I was reminded of Ron Mexico and Sugar Poultry and I had to do it!

But yeah, I mean, this is something that should had kept in private instead of being leaked so some moron can have his lulz.

It's a free country. They can think whatever they want. I certainly don't agree with what they said, but they didn't harm anyone by saying those things. It would be unconstitutional to punish these people.

Re: Oh Freakin' Great! Another BLACK Family Living In Government Housing!

I don't agree with what they did, but it is a free country. They can do whatever they want, as long as it doesn't threaten the president-elect.

But still, why would state officials use government computers for private emailing? That's stupid; it was going to be known eventually.
