In the Trump era, all of the racists living in America have risen to the surface to put their bigotry on full display. A lot of hardcore racists probably voted for Trump only because they saw him as a green light for racism.
The director of community outreach for Homeland Security, Rev. Jamie Johnson, just resigned in disgrace after making disgustingly racist remarks.
CNN’s K-File reported that Johnson accused African-Americans of turning good cities into “slums” because they suffer from “laziness, drug use and promiscuity.” He’s also attacked the Muslim community by saying the only things Muslims are good for are “oil and dead bodies.”
In a 2008 radio interview, Johnson described why he thinks Jewish people have prospered:
“I think one of the reasons why is because Jewish people from their coming to America in great waves in the early part of the 1800’s immediately rolled up their sleeves and began to work so hard and applied themselves to education and other means of improvement and other means of climbing the, I hate this phrase, but the social ladder if you will.”
He added, “And they have done exceptionally well for themselves. For only representing about 1.4% of America’s population, they make up 12% of America’s millionaires. Why? Because they work.”
“And it’s an indictment of America’s black community that has turned America’s major cities into slums because of laziness, drug use and sexual promiscuity,” Johnson proclaimed.
After resigning, Johnson declared, “I have and will continue to work with leaders and members of all faiths as we jointly look to strengthen our safety and security as an interfaith community.”
