Calling Someone A "Curly-Haired Nigger" Is Bigotry!

It is! And yes, since bigotry and racism go hand in hand. Yes, calling anyone a "curly-haired nigger" is definitely bigotry!

It is in your face racism! And when it comes from a Black man, it is still bigotry and racism! Just because you're Black doesn't mean that you can't be a racist!

Just as it can be racist for a White person to physically or verbally attack a Black person, yes, it is also possible for a Black person to be a racist and attack White people.

In this case it is about a Black man verbally attacking a Black woman by calling her all sorts of vile things - including a "curly-haired Nigger!" 

Now pardon me, but isn't that considered a Hate Crime these days?

So where's the White House on this? Where's the Liberal PC Police? Where's the outcry from Liberals like Chris Matthews and Bob Beckles? Where is the NAACP?

And since it was a woman who was being talked to like that, where's the National Organization of Woman?

Why isn't the White House taking up arms and sending the Justice Department to quit running guns to Mexico for a while and go check on this Hate Crime?

So why isn't anyone running to the aid of Charlotte Bergmann after a Memphis disc jockey Thaddeus Matthews called her a "Curly-Haired Nigger" - among other racial slurs?

In a profanity-laced tirade, the Memphis DJ used an on-air interview to berate Charlotte Bergmann. He called her a "token negro who is doing the bidding of white folk."

Matthews called Charlotte Bergmann, who is Black, "stupid." Then went on to call her as a "Curly-Haired Nigger!" 

After experiencing enough hate, she finally walked out of the interview. Class act Matthews refused to shake her hand, saying he didn't want to get her "Whiteness" on him.

So, as the Associated Press article asked, where "the outrage? The fury? In Memphis, you can hear the crickets."

Charlotte Bergmann told Fox News that, while the web video of the interview has gotten a lot of attention on blogs, local media has largely ignoring it. She said she hasn't gotten any calls from politicians about it.

"No organization has spoken out," said Bergmann. "The anger has been expressed throughout the nation, but not in my local area." 

As for her treatment on air, which she described as "racist" and abusive, she said it stems from the notion that Black politicians should uniformly be Democrats.

Oh, did I leave that out!

Well yes, the reason that it is apparently OK with Civil Rights leaders, the White House, the NAACP, the NOW, and of course Memphis Tennessee is that Charlotte Bergmann is a local Republican Congressional candidate.

Charlotte Bergmann is running in Tennessee's 9th District, which is mostly Black. The seat is currently held by Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen, whose office has not commented on the radio interview or the hate that followed.

Matthews says he stands by his actions. He told MyFoxMemphis that he's apologized on air for the "Whiteness" comment - but the Black bigot defends the rest.

Matthews justifies his racial hate crime by saying, "I do not regret the content of what I said. In the anger of having another politician in my studio that knows absolutely nothing about nothing and gives me stupid answers, I don't regret that."

Then went on to say, "Now the context of the Whiteness rubbing off, that part I do regret, that particular portion of the show. But the rest of everything I said, I meant exactly what I said."

According to Fox News, they reported that it is unclear as to how the radio station management, at WPLX-AM 1180, will end up handling the incident. The owner of the broadcasting company apparently has issued an apology.

Bergmann said the owner, William Pollack, called her Wednesday to apologize. She also provided a written apology under Pollack's name, which expressed regret for the "ill treatment" on air.

"Ill treatment!" That my friends is the best euphemism for Hate as I've ever heard.

Pollock wrote: "I was unaware of the horrific treatment of you until today. I have personally met with Matthews and will assure you this situation is receiving our complete attention," the statement said, adding that he "personally supported" Bergmann in 2010 and will do so again.

I guess by saying that Matthews "personally supported Bergmann in 2010 and will do so again" that is suppose to make it all better. Sort of a management way of saying "let me kiss it and make it well!"

Sorry, but I don't think that that will make up for what she went through. Before Bergmann eventually walked out of the interview, it was Hell on the radio! And yes, the KKK has nothing on the Black Bigotry of Thaddeus Matthews!

For the first 12 minutes, Matthews repeatedly challenged her loyalty to black people. Then when that was going no where, Matthews started asking about her affiliation with the Tea Party.

After that he accused her of evading the question, later asking, "Are you a token of white folk? Are white folk using you to come against black folk?"

After she started to respond, Matthews interrupted, saying: "Damn, Ms. Bergmann, shut up for a moment. OK, shut up for a moment, because you shucking and jiving."

The hate filled interview which the Liberal Media is playing down as simply "confrontational" continued as Matthews challenged her on plans to help the Black community.

"All I see in you is another token Negro," he said, then likening her to former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain.

After several minutes, the DJ threatened to cut off her microphone and throw her out of the studio. "I'm so sick of your sh-, yourself, and I'm about to put your ass up outta here," he said.

"You are a token negro that white folk have control over."

Finally Charlotte Bergmann had enough and said "We have a failure to communicate" and started to leave the studio.

But Matthews didn't let up, instead he continued to berate the Ms Bergmann, by yelling, "Get up and get your ass up outta here. Get your stupid, ignorant ass up outta my studio."

As she left, she held out her hand to the DJ. But that was all it took for Matthews to let loose with his final racial slurs by saying, "I don't need to shake your hand. I'm scared because some of that Whiteness might rub off on me."

Bergmann told Fox News that she's trying to get the video of the confrontation shown at the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference - an annual meet-up in Washington of prominent Conservatives. She said her campaign has reached out to two Republican lawmakers about that possibility.

Thaddeus Matthews has a reputation in Memphis of bringing problems to his radio station. According to MyFoxMemphis, he was fired from another AM radio station in 2010.

Of course, typical for someone of the ilk of Thaddeus Matthews, he claimed "White Republicans pressured the bosses to remove him."

Matthews launched his show on WPLX, originally billed as a mostly Blues music program. It turned into his private platform to attack Black Conservatives and Whites.

I can't help but wonder if the folks at MSNBC will see the pathetic actions of Thaddeus Matthews as being a perfect resume for employment on MSNBC where Liberal Hate Speech flows daily.

  1. I cannot express my outrage for such a 'pass' on this issue. Hateful and degrading actions eventually follow racist words....
