So another senior official, Judge Cebull (Chief Judge for the District of Montana), has been caught out in racist behavior
This federal judge sent a racist Obama joke around to his pals, then when it got forwarded to a newspaper with his name of it, backpedaled to say it didn't reflect his racism, but his dislike of President Obama. The "joke" in question likened inter-racial sex to bestiality.
Or is more likely that this is yet another individual who trades in private in race hate and when it bubbles to the surface, laughs it off as a "joke", or as relaying a different "message". Well, I have news for everyone who keeps their hate under the covers - don't. Bring it out for the world see and judge. It's is just plain cowardice to fulminate this hate in secret, trading in murky emails and in private, members-only blogs. And don't look us in the eye and tell us you aren't racist. It just doesn't wash.
It reminds me that old joke "If eat fish once, you don't call me a fish-eater; if I drink juice once, you don't call me a juice drinker; but I screw just one sheep..."
I am a happy participant in an interracial marriage and we would rather know who hates us so we can hold your views up to judgement. History is with us. Hate crime is recognized and illegal. Groups who trade only in hate are vilified - no matter what their race.
And to Judge Cebull in the news article - you cheapen the honored position you hold in the Federal Court system and I would hate to be a person of color brought before you.
