but hurricane katrina was so funny!

Hilarious Racist Email Gets GOP Official Fired

So Funny!One thing Republicans like to do is send racist shit to each other, whether funny black-face minstrel songs about the “magic negro” (the president) or funny newsletters about the watermelon and fried chicken certain black people (the president) always consume, or especially funny racist jokes about how black people are so lazy but they sho’ nuff gets to shufflin’ mighty quickly comes ta pass a colored (the president) becomes the president.

Meet Florida’s state committeewoman Carol Carter, “a hard-working, loyal Republican for many years.” This loyal Republican, Carol Carter, forwarded a whimsical email to her loyal Republican colleagues around Tampa Bay about the very convenient ability of many black people to travel to Washington D.C. for Obama’s inauguration, despite the fact that many blacks drowned when Hurricane Katrina flooded New Orleans.

How can 2,000,000 blacks get into Washington, DC in 1 day in sub zero temps when 200,000 couldn’t get out of New Orleans in 85 degree temps with four days notice?

Carol Carter

HAHAHAHAHA. Get it?! Because black people are … lazy? They like cold weather? Jesus fucking christ.

So, tragically, this loyal Republican was forced to resign by the state chairman. But they’re sure sad to be losing top-shelf talent like her:

“I’ve known Carol for many, many years and I know she doesn’t have a racist bone in her body,” said Janice Torgersen, corresponding secretary for the Hillsborough County Republican Executive Committee.

“We can’t condone it. There’s no place for it in our party,” Torgersen said of Carter’s behavior. “At the same time, I’m tragically sad to be losing someone like her. Why do intelligent people do dumb things? That’s the question.”

Ugh. First off, nobody has “a racist bone” in their bodies. Check your brains, fucktards. Second, is this halfwit email — complete with the usual inscrutable logic and lack of proper punctuation — the work of “intelligent people”? Who believes that?

Carol Carter, the loyal Republican, thought she’d nipped this particular racist-GOP controversy in the bud, eight hours later, when she sent a second email clarifying the purely non-racist motivation of the first email:

From: Carol Carter
January 30, 5:54 PM
Subject: Earlier e-mail

I have been asked to send this apology for my earlier e-mail. I am sorry that it was received in a negative manner. I do hope that we are going to be allowed to keep our sense of humor.

If we can’t laugh at the people we used to keep as slaves and continue to torment with outrages like the “eh” response to Katrina, then what can we laugh at, right? Anyway — and obviously — this was hardly the only recent incident of Hillsborough County, Florida GOP officials sending racist emails specifically about the great crisis of these people’s lives: a negro elected president, of America!

Hillsborough has been a magnet for racially charged controversies in the Republican Party in recent months. Former county chairman David Storck was roundly criticized for forwarding an e-mail lamenting the many blacks voting early in the presidential election, and former state party finance chairman Al Austin apologized for forwarding an e-mail joke referring to the assassination of Obama.

There’s a kind of pathetically sad part about this otherwise standard-Republican news item, too, and it comes from the county’s NAACP president, Curtis Stokes, “a prominent Republican.” Stokes, who is black, seems to be perpetually baffled that his party is run by a bunch of stone-cold racists. In 2007, he seemed to flirt with the idea of switching sides and maybe dealing with people who don’t see him as subhuman. The cause of that crisis of party faith was when “Republican Hillsborough County Commissioners Brian Blair, Ken Hagan and Jim Norman supported a proclamation designating a Confederate Memorial Day.” Those guys!

That Stokes was already publicly supporting both D.C.’s GOP-opposed bid to get a real representative in the House and Obama’s presidential candidacy by then is a pretty strong sign the Republican Party was probably not the most natural home, but some people just need to be repeatedly humiliated, for years, until they finally get the hint.

You know, because Stokes was just having a nice conversation with Carol Carter a few days before she sent her racist email. Why, she hadn’t even said something specifically racist to him!

“I just saw Carol last Tuesday, and we had a good conversation,” said Curtis Stokes, president of the Hillsborough County NAACP and a prominent Republican. “Never in a million years would I think she would forward something like this.”

Right.

    I was expecting the headline to read “Hilarious Racist Email Gets GOP Official Promoted,” frankly.

  2. plowman

    The other joke is about how millions showed up for the crowning of Hopey but only five missed work!

  3. SayItWithWookies

    Why do both rags call it a “racial email?” Is the email’s race at all relevant? The word is racist, asswipes — but nice way to pour salt in the wound by implying that racism is somehow a matter of opinion.

  4. almond rotary phone

    I’m disappointed. She forgot to add the standard racist cliche: “Some of my best friends are black.” in her follow up.

  5. Sazerac

    I’m pretty sure that they got there on private jets loaned out by all of her friends who also don’t have any racist bones in their overpaid bodies.If they had only loaned them out during Katrina, none of this would have ever happened, but, back then, they were all rich racists and not the new Republican Rainbow Coalition.

  6. IceCreamEmpress

    She forgot to add the standard racist cliche: “Some of my best friends are black.”

    Actually, she wrote “Some of my best maids are black” but then she realized that they were all Hispanic.

    Confederate Memorial Day? Fucking Confederate Memorial Day? Yeah, great idea. Lets make a holiday for treason.

    Why wasn’t the Secret Service kicking down his door a few minutes after he forwarded it?

  9. Rodney Badger

    That email defending this nice lady is hilarious. Her earlier racist email proves 1) She’s racist; 2) The Republican party has plenty of room for racist like her; and 3) She’s an idiot. Basically, everything the defender dude said is wrong.

    On a side note, Ginsburg has cancer. She may make it back to the bench, but really, how much longer can she go? I wish I could remind the idiot PUMA’s that if they got their wish and McCain won, we would have seen the beginning of the end of Roe v. Wade today. But I’ve been banned.

    “I am sorry that it was received in a negative manner.” The perfect apologetic-sounding non-apology. I’m sorry you’re being such an asshole about my funny, funny joke to the effect that the coloreds are lazy and dumb, which all my friends here in the office really enjoyed.

    What’s outrageous is the people of New Orleans re-elected the idiot Mayor Nagin even after he totally bungled Katrina. Was he elected based on racism? At least the governor got the axed.

    by Sam Feb 05, 2009 04:56 PM
    Let’s face it: In our present, politically correct culture, only whites can be racist! Most of my black friends do not buy into this game. Whether white or black, we will need to be supportive of each other in the weeks, months and years ahead. (HAHAHA WHITES CAN BE RACIST AGAIN, AMERICA!)

  21. Serolf Divad

    Carol isn’t racist… she hates dark skinned and light skinned negroes alike. Plus, she really is stumped as to how so many young, middle-class able bodied negro college kids were able to make it to DC for the inauguration while thousands of aged, poor, black grandmas didn’t have the foresight to book a flight to the Hamptons and ride out hurricane Katrina in their summer homes.

    The comments in response on the Tampa Bay blog site are proof that this is a pretty common sentiment.

    I would love to go down to Hillsborough, knock on her door, spit on her face, then after she says “how Dare You?”, say, “I’m sorry my SPIT wasn’t well received by your FACE.”

  30. Advn2rgirl

    Virginia had Lee-Jackson-King Day for the longest. It was Lee-Jackson Day and, when forced to give MLK a day, they stuck him on there with the other Great Heroes of the South, so we didn’t have to pay for another day off work for public employees. ‘Cause that was the most important thing. Seriously. We celebrated Martin Luther King on Robert E. Lee’s birthday until 2000, people! And you wonder how I took the Bush years so calmly.

    Yeah, they don’t see why everyone doesn’t get a big har-dee-har-har out of this crap. I mean, all the people they know think it is just hilarious. But now comes the truly horrible, horrible part: how they will suffer for just a tiny joke. I mean, it’s like oppression by the nazis or something; they are just the suffering, suffering and they are such totally non-racist folks. No one else could suffer as they do.
    They denounce the victimology and embrace it.

  33. WIDTAP

    I was one of those two million at the Inaugural. Having grown up in Iowa, I didn’t realize like other Obama voters that I was black. Was there some sort of initiation that I missed, or do you just get moniker like Bill Clinton got to be the first black President?

    Also. ” I am sorry that it was received in a negative manner.”. Hey, my bad, Ms Carter. Certainly you did nothing wrong on your part. Being newly black myself I must have gotten a little uppity there.

    Another Righty joke making the rounds is that the Republican party shouldn’t worry, when was the last time that a black man kept a job for four years??? Pretty witty huh? Can’t wait till Hopey makes it through 8 yrs and they have to thank him for improving their pitiful little lives

    As someone who lives in the foreigner part of Florida(South Florida), I’m fukking tired of knuckle dragging racist shyt bags in Central and N.Florida. Don’t be surprised people, these people genuinely don’t realize calling someone a “Nigrah” is insulting. They think that just because they don’t wear sheets over their head they aren’t racist! YES! That filthy gutter skank is a racist, and there is absolutely no amount of spin that will change that. And since they seem to have a hard determining a metric for a racist, I will help them out:

    1) Have you ever interrupted telling a joke because a black/latino/asian walked by?

    2) Have you ever referred to another ethnic group as “them”?

    3) Have you ever used the phrase “I have black friends”, followed by the names of the “mulatto” guy who lives down the street and who you don’t allow your kids to play with his kids.

  85. Gopherit

    [re=237509]Purple Tide[/re]: you are a fucking ignorant retard. everyone but you prob knows the pik….but you are stupid and useless. try fark, and go away.

  87. gjdodger

    Anyhow, if Karol is looking for a job, she can always go work for the

    . Although she probably shouldn’t oughta ask Michael Steele if he got away from Katrina by being a really good swimmer.

    [[re=237630]Purple Tide[/re]: fuck off purple. no one likes you, and you referenced the biggest fucktard troll on this site in a while. That should guarantee your banning, unless you are ken.

    [re=237567]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: Relax, we love you. I know plenty of racist here in…ugh, New jersey…who don’t even realize when they say racist jokes that I want to shove them down an upward-moving escalator. I just don’t think it’s cool to use dead people’s pic’s for laffs, y’all, seriously.

    So after seeing Ms. Carter’s photo, I can say I understand her problem completely…clearly she’s never been laid.

  94. Colander

    for the record, I love dead people. i fukked a dead guy once, and he was the best lover I ever had, y’all.

    [re=237634]Gopherit[/re]: Oh you had to go there, Mr. Gopher. You just had too. That picture up top? That’s your wife after I was done with her. I think she’s still breathing in that photo. You should check the living room at this point.

  96. Purple Tide

    [re=237638]Colander[/re]: Stiff as a board, eh? Wow, this thread has gone off the deep end, and it’s all Gophertit’s fault. As it says in Leviticus, ‘Raise not thy shrill voice in anger, lest necrophiles doth their sickly fancys strew.’

  97. Pengo

    Remember, they don’t call it the Civil War down here – it was the War of Northern Aggression. Seriously.

    A couple nights after the election I was at a Cracker Barrel (don’t ask) waiting out front when some random guy asked me if I’d heard about the email? I said I hadn’t and he said “All white people have to report to the cotton fields at 8am,” laughed, and walked off.

    Here’s a lovely tidbit from Hernando County, just a bit north of Hillsborough County (where Tampa is located) which is like a a Liberal Gomorrah in comparison. This is the land of Confederate Flags and pickups with faded McCain/Palin stickers.

  98. Hound

    People think the South is the Racist Capitol of Amerkuh. I’ve met plenty of racists in my visits up to Yankeeville(s). In a way they’re worse, because of how progressive they think they are, but it’s all the same shit. That said, not only is this Carter woman a racist, she is D-U-M dumb.

    Gopherit, there seems to be a stick hanging out of your ass.

  99. Neon Trotsky

    Hillsborough is a hellhole even by Florida standards, in that it contains a really unappealing city (Tampa) and crappy antebellum swamp towns (like Thonotosassa, which I associate with the Greek root word “Thanatos” ["death"]). Ybor City in Tampa I consider to be a GOP dystopia in that it combines: luxury shopping, nighttime hedonism and alcoholism, overbearing and corrupt police, and strong hints of racial tension. This e-mail does not surprise me in the least.

    This a very good question that needs answered it could help FEMA during the next major event. However if the answer was “free Watermelon” Then it is a “racial” comment.If we see every comment/joke as a slur then we are doomed to a very racial war.
    this one was posted twice[!]

    I RECEIVED THE SAME EMAIL AND THOUGHT IT WAS FUNNY AND HAD A RING OF TRUTH TO IT ALSO. POLITICAL CORRECTNESS HAS OVER REACHED AND IF THIS IS THE NEW REPUBLICAN PARTY, THEN COUNT ME OUT ALSO. I AM FED UP WITH THESE THIN SKINNED WIMPS.

    “Durr, I thoughts it were funny! The blacks are like that! Y cant ne1 answer her question???”
    Hooray for Florida!

  101. OffTheRecord

    Picture blah blah blah disturbing part of our history blah blah blah… Okay, I in know way remember how that is suppose to go. You get the general idea.

  102. IceCreamEmpress

    I think dumping on Robert E. Lee is cheap and stupid

    Really? Because I think worshipping a traitor as a hero is idiotic beyond belief. Yes, Robert E. Lee was a fine person in his private life, blah blah, good father, blah blah, served with distinction in the Mexican War, blah, blah–

    –and he was the head of the Army of the motherfucking Confederacy. Which makes him a traitor. He doesn’t get a day.

  103. IceCreamEmpress

    Other traitors who shouldn’t get a day include Benedict Arnold, Julius Rosenberg (Ethel can have a day, because she wasn’t actually guilty), and Ezra Pound.

  104. Hound

    Gopherit, maybe you should bring that ole ban hammer down on your own head if you so dislike the time you spend here. Also.

  105. saggyboobedhag

    What a fucktard. I’m never sorry at how my supreme insults are received. That’s why I make them. So that they are received in the spirit with which I send them out on the intertubes.

    And it’s not up to us whether or not she keeps her sense of humor. I don’t see any evidence that she ever had one in the first place but it’s not something anyone can take away. Well, unless it’s tortured out of you, I guess. Rapists, murderer and torturers tend to impact my sense of humor pretty much.

  106. expatinOz

    she doesn’t have a racist bone in her body…her muscles, skin, cartiledge and various internal organs, however

    Damn, the older I get, the happier I am that I fled Central Florida as soon as I graduated high school and have only been forced to visit rarely. Which is still too frequently.

  108. MarieDeGournay

    [re=237379]Vanity Smurf[/re]: Yes, fair. Fair to a movement that wanted to build an agricultural empire based upon the enslavement of men, women, and children, and took up arms against the country’s legitimately elected government to do it. Heroes my ass. They all feel bad about how humiliated they were by losing the war. Well maybe they should stop and think maybe you deserved to be humiliated, and continue to be so until they fucking grow up.

  109. shortsshortsshorts

    [re=237680]Neon Trotsky[/re]: Let’s place urban centers all over the country, but first in Florida. It has the potential to be an iron-liberal state, but first they must be stricken of the word “circular road that ultimately leads back to the other road you were just on.” Even suburban Floridians would live in mortal, unceasing fear.

  110. Trace

    Look, we all say horribly racist, morbid and insensitive jokes. Most of us just have the good sense to say them in the comfort of our own homes to our own children.

    I mean, Jesus, people. Grow some class all up in your ass, please.

  111. sowbelly

    What’s so racist about saying some of my best friends are black? My best friend in the world is black. Of course, the way the economy is going I may have to sell her, but that’s strictly a business decision.

  112. freakishlystrong

    I haz an embarrassment for living in Florida, and can’t wait to try and vote all Repubs out again in 2010…fuckers.

  113. Terry

    “I have been asked to send this apology for my earlier e-mail. I am sorry that it was received in a negative manner. I do hope that we are going to be allowed to keep our sense of humor.”

    Oooh, the classic be sorry that someone is upset, but not be sorry that you did the thing that upset them.

    Please please please, the GOP has to send Michael Steele on CNN to explain how this woman is just misunderstood by the evil media.

  114. iolanthe

    [re=237423]kth[/re]: Go ahead and go there. Surely you’ve heard Ann Coulter fulminating about how Liberal women are always so ugly and badly-groomed, whereas Conservative women are all beauteous put-together foxes. We should all send her pictures of Carol Carter. (BTW, I’ve never seen anyone lose her looks as quickly as Ann is losing hers. She’s going to start needing a body double for book jacket photographs. At least she’s disproving that stupid old adage, “You can never be too thin or too rich.”)

  115. Cape Clod

    If Carol truely believes that it was not a racist comment, then she should tell it in the locker room of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and observe the level of hilarity with which it is greeted.

  116. Mustang

    How can 5,000,000 white people get their fat asses to Vegas in one day, when the can’t be bothered to vote, read a book or exercise in a million years? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHa

  117. DustBowlBlues

    The minute Hopey was elected, the muslim, terrorist, mafia, etc. emails my poor, long suffering husband had been sent stopped and the same people started sending out racist jokes.

    It’s like they’ve all said, fuck it. Trying to claim we had a reason didn’t work so let’s just have fun and give in to our true, racist natures.

    Wonder how well Steele will play the black puppet role for the party. Really well, I’d guess, if they pay him enough and let him into some of their nicer country clubs.

  118. Doglessliberal

    This makes me so angry I am snark-free. There is just so much wrong wiht everythign she did and said. GRRRRRR. I wish I had magical powers and could make her a poor, black N.O. resident on 9/1/06.

  119. CivicHoliday

    Ken, didn’t you learn last time (the horrid Toby Keith song thread, wasn’t it?) that though we Wonkette folks love a good snark and a disturbing photo, dead people (particularly those who have died in tragic tragic ways) turn us off? No snark this time – please take it down.

    [re=237686]IceCreamEmpress[/re]: Treason is the new patriotism. The gunuts will tell you, if you ask, which nobody dares do, that they have to stockpile weapons for “FREEDOM.” If you press further, they say it’s for “LIBERTY.” Still further and they’ll go into the nuts and bolts of their thought train, or at least the nuts, which is, they must have heavy weaponry to shoot harmless animals and the postman, if he gets ornery.

    Nobody challenges the NRA. But if you did, that’s how you’d end up. With Treason as Patriotism.

  121. Go Figure

    Most of the racist Republican members of my family are unfamiliar with the internet. The couple that have figured out how to log on send me awesome forwards. My recent favority was areound the inaugeration.

    The premise was something like “What an Amazing thing that this African American man will be living in a well guarded federally owned home or something, it’s been a long time coming, he sure deserves it, etc, etc, etc… then at the end there was a photo of OJ. Fuck my family is insane.

    “I’m confused. How can 2,000,000 blacks get into Washington, DC in 1 day in sub zero temps when 200,000 couldn’t get out of New Orleans in 85 degree temps with four days notice?”

    Don’t be confused; the simple answer is leadership. In the first case Obama, and the second, Bush.

    January 30, 5:54 PM

    Subject: Earlier e-mail

    I have been asked to send this apology for my earlier e-mail. I am sorry that it was received in a negative manner. I do hope that we are going to be allowed to keep our sense of humor.

    As you can now see, it went to very few people. I did add Todd Marks in this apology, as he is in the mix now. I am also sorry to learn that some of these persons are not real team players. There really was no reason for this to go beyond those that I e-mailed (8 people). This was not an e-mail blast as I do not have that capability.

    Carol

    There really was no reason for this HIGHLY SPECIALIZED SHOULDA BEEN THERE AT THAT FUNNY LYNCHIN’ example of humor to go beyond my close, white, black-despising group of white, overweight, trans-fats and aspartame eatin’ nicorette club members!!! darn it all you fucking niggers I mean, white heterosexual co-workers without the highly specialized sense of who deserves to live and who deserves to drown in this world. A fat middle aged small time partisan racist lady can’t catch a break these days

  131. lumpenproletariat

    I can’t believe those negroes survived the cold with their thin, tropical blood and straw hats and ripped cotton shorts and no sense of direction and short attention spans, using only barter and soul-handshakes and Kool cigarettes as currency, and the way they think they see ghosts and spirits everywhere and trusting the hog-tooth necklace they’re grandmammy gave ‘em when dey wuz 10 to keep them safe shiverin’ in da corn crib at night up in dat big ol’ city with the negro man gettin’ to be prezdent an’ shit
    It IS kind of strange, when you consider that so many of us drownded in dat big ol’ storm when we had FOUR DAYS warnin’ to earn a whole bunch of money and buy an SUV and pack all our stuff and get out!! What were us black folks THINKIN’ BOUT!?? EATIN’PUSSY?!?
