Tennessee, More Cartoons, And I Just Wouldn't Mess With Churches

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

I guess cartoons like these will never stop being passed around in "secret":

Tennessee state Sen. Diane Black, R-Gallatin, says she has disciplined an aide for passing along a racist cartoon of President Barack Obama in an e-mail.

The aide, Sherri Goforth, forwarded the cartoon May 28 to other staffers, and received both a written and verbal reprimand Monday, the senator said. The (Nashville) Tennessean reported Black said Goforth sent the e-mail without her knowledge and "it does not reflect my views."
And even though I'm not really a church goer and racist graffiti shouldn't be - well - anywhere - I think there really is a special place for people that hit up churches and other organizations of that ilk:

The FBI, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives as well as the Jacksonville Sheriff's Officer are investigating after racist graffiti and images were painted all over a the property of a popular Jacksonville church on Monday. Vandals painted words and images such as white power, a swastika, KKK, the n-word, as well as a symbol for a Nazi greeting on the church property; and that's just the tip of the iceberg. The incident at the Potter's House School, which is run by the Potter's House Church, was more than just some painted graffiti; it also included a case of arson.
