This is the face of racism in the persona of Pamela Ramsey Taylor, former director of the Clay County Development Corp in West Virginia.
This is the face of racism in the persona of Beverly Whaling, former Mayor of Clay County, West Virginia.
These two persons are no less evil than Mohamed Atta who intentionally flew a plane into the World Trade Center in New York on 11 September 2001.
On a Facebook post (see below), Taylor wrote, “It will be refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified First Lady in the White House. I’m tired of seeing a Ape in heels.” The post was then liked by the mayor of Clay, Beverly Whaling, who wrote, “Just made my day Pam” in the comments section.
On October 22, I wrote a post titled The Legacy of Michelle Obama – First Lady Extraordinaire, which I began with “All the grace of Jacqueline Kennedy, the intelligence of Eleanor Roosevelt, and a sense of humour unprecedented in a First Lady … that is Michelle Obama.” I stand by those words today more than ever.
I will not criticize Melania Trump, as she has enough troubles being married to a sociopathic narcissist, but I will make a comparison between Ms. Trump and First Lady Obama.
- Michelle Obama is a graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law School, and spent her early legal career working at the law firm Sidley Austin, where she met her husband. She subsequently worked as the Associate Dean of Student Services at the University of Chicago and the Vice President for Community and External Affairs of the University of Chicago Medical Center. As First Lady, Obama has become a role model for women, and an advocate for poverty awareness, nutrition, physical activity, and healthy eating.
- Melania Trump began her career as a semi-nude model, came to the U.S. under questionable circumstances, and is now married to Donald Trump.
It is amazing that Michelle was criticized early in President Obama’s first term for appearing in public in a sleeveless dress, yet some think that former model Melania Trump, who has exposed much more than her arms, has more ‘class’.
Beverly Whaling issued a written ‘apology’ to news media outlets saying that her comment ‘wasn’t intended to be racist.’ Excuse me, but how the Sam Heck does that work? Ms. Obama has brought nothing but class and intellect to the White House, so … what other excuse is there than that these two ladies dislike Ms. Obama because of her race, the colour of her skin? What else could they possibly mean by an “ape in heels”? And an apology saying it wasn’t meant to be racist is a non-apology similar to the ones Trump himself has issued. It was not an apology, it was an excuse, and a pretty lame one at that! One cannot apologize for racism — it is the essence of the person and it is ugly … you cannot apologize away an ugly heart.
You have now seen two of the faces of racism. These are just two. There are thousands, nay … millions of them out there. In the wake of last week’s election, Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has received reports of over 200 racist incidents, according to Time. Who could have predicted this spike? Oh wait … I have been predicting it for a year or more. Look once more at the two faces of racism at the top of this post. Remember them. Notice that they look like the person you might pass in the canned peas section of your local grocery store, or the woman who takes your money at the gas station. They look like normal people, but they are not. They are racists and they are the face of evil.
