Vernon Jones vs Wendy Rogers: Endorsement Controversy Ends In ‘Faucet-Dancing’
Vernon Jones, the previous Democratic Georgia state Rep.-turned MAGA man who hopes to develop into the Peach State’s subsequent Republican governor, is discovering that his descent into the sunken place hasn’t occurred very easily as white persons are nonetheless white folks and for him to be the quintessential “Black buddy,” his background should present that he’s the squeaky-clean Blacky-lackey white Republicans who endorsed him all the time needed him to be.
As we beforehand reported, Jones just lately discovered himself on the improper aspect of white fragility when he sat down with right-wing podcaster Stew Peters, who grilled him a few lawsuit he was hit with in 2010 when he was Dekalb County’s first Black CEO. Jones was accused of being a part of a scheme to switch white managers within the county’s Parks and Recreation Division with Black managers as a result of white folks suppose they’re entitled to the domination of actually each workforce in every single place. A largely white jury sided with two of the plaintiffs within the swimsuit and Jones was ordered to pay them a butt-load of cash.
Peters questioned him on the incident and principally accused him of being racist towards white folks—to the purpose the place Jones acquired annoyed and walked off the set.
*Arizona State Sen. Wendy Rogers enters the chat.*
As a result of white Republicans are determined to earn as many “See, I’m not racist” factors as they’ll, a lot of them are all the time on the hunt for a Black conservative to endorse. So, Jones acquired loads of GOP help from Republicans, together with former President Donald Trump, who advised he run for to be Georgia’s subsequent governor within the first place.
However after the interview with Peters, a few of Jones’ overseers…I imply, backers have been leaping ship, together with Rogers, who earlier this month, demanded that Jones “take away my endorsement off all marketing campaign supplies and web site instantly.”
On Monday, Rogers tweeted about it once more saying Jones nonetheless has her endorsement up and he or she needs it eliminated, however Jones’ marketing campaign was like, “Maintain up, non-sis, you bought the endorsement in your web page too!”
Rogers responded by invoking a time period she seemingly is aware of has a sure connotation when utilized to Black folks, and significantly Black folks of the home negro persuasion.
“Appears like tap-dancing,” she wrote. “Web site endorsement web page shouldn’t be the identical as an previous tweet. Hold dancing.”
On one hand, Rogers was seemingly being racist as hell with that comment.
Then again—Vernon Jones do be tap-dancing tho.
At this level, Jones is drowning within the sea of extra-caucasified whiteness that he selected to dive into, however everyone knows he’ll proceed attempting to swim.
