In his email, federal judge Richard Cebull writes: "Normally I don't send or forward a lot of these, but even by my standards, it was a bit touching. I want all of my friends to feel what I felt when I read this. Hope it touches your heart like it did mine."I imagine that we will see more and more of these types of stories as we get closer to the presidential election. Our nation is not post-racial yet. The judge wasn't sorry about sending the email when it went out on February 20th. However, once the email got leaked to the media Cebull realized that he had phuqued up big-time.
The forwarded content states: "A little boy said to his mother; 'Mommy, how come I'm Black and you're white?' His mother replied, 'Don't even go there Barack! From what I can remember about that party, you're lucky you don't bark!'"
"I apologize to anybody who is offended by it, and I can obviously understand why people would be offended," Cebull said in comments reported by the Great Falls Tribune newspaper.
"The only reason I can explain it to you is I am not a fan of our president, but this goes beyond not being a fan," he said. "I didn't send it as racist, although that's what it is. I sent it out because it's anti-Obama."
Am I unfair to label this guy as a racist? Perhaps he is just a well-meaning guy who made a mistake, huh? What say u?
