A reader earlier today mentioned some unpleasant e-mail originating from a state e-mail account. I have copies now of the racist stuff, which was sent under the e-mail address of a staff member in the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Division.
Anybody in a position of authority there know?
Sample: Knock-knock joke turns on the punchline of a cartoon Barack Obama speaking in broad black dialect -- "Eyes yo' new president." Another: Photo of a truck overloaded with black people, with the legend: "Guess what. Family members are already heading to the White House for a visit." Really side-splitting. Instructive, though. This blind ignorance gives you a little understanding of the hill the candidate still must climb in ever-so-enlightened post-racial 21st century America.
UPDATE: ABC Director Michael Langley said the agency is investigating the matter.
