Lawmaker: Hire more whites to run government
Robb Pitts, a county commissioner in Atlanta, Ga., says the county needs to hire more whites.
What? Not really?
Pitts, a black, said, “I would encourage the county manager to find ways to inform all ethnicities when new positions arise and make a concerted effort to diversify our employee base.”
That was in a recent email to constituents, and Fulton County Personnel Board Chairman Paul Zucca says still today the workforce “needs more diversity.”
“It is important for the people of Fulton County to feel empowered, to feel equal,” he said.
The issue is that the county employees have become heavily weighted in favor of blacks, and that has generated a series of costly court cases.
“There has been a pattern against white job applicants that has been going on a long time,” said Dick Williams, longtime host of “The Georgia Gang” Sunday broadcast on Atlanta’s WAGA-TV.
“Racism is wrong no matter where it comes from,” added Mo Ivory of Atlanta CBS radio and a prominent black voice in sprawling Fulton County where the capital of Georgia is located.
They were referring to the most recent federal court settlement of a high-profile lawsuit by a white person charging discrimination on the part of the black-dominated Fulton County government.
What’s this really all about?
Two words: Milton County.
To put it more specifically, begging white people not to secede from Fulton County.
