Our readers may or may not know about the vituperative racist Alabama state representative Alvin Holmes (the same Alvin Holmes who called Clarence Thomas an “Uncle Tom” in January) and his comments earlier this year about white people and aborted black babies. But we wanted you to know about the response to those comments – and the way they’ve brought a community together to protest the ugly divisiveness Holmes promotes from that state’s capitol.
Here’s what Holmes said back in early March…
And Holmes said something else:
“I will bring you $100,000 cash tomorrow if you show me a whole bunch of whites that adopted blacks in Alabama. I will go down there and mortgage my house and get it cash in 20 dollar bills and bring it to you in a little briefcase.”
Let’s call those famous last words. Because as it happens, there are a “whole bunch of whites that adopted blacks in Alabama.”
And they were furious at his racist comments. Which led to this…
Holmes said a State House rally does not disprove his point about whites rarely adopting black children.
“I know they had a little group up there at the Capitol,” Holmes said. “But you’ve got four million people in the state of Alabama. You can get a small group to take a position on anything.”
Obviously, he hasn’t been shamed into an apology, or to coughing up the $100,000 he said he’d fork over if he was proven wrong.
Or to resign.
Holmes has a Republican challenger for his district seat in Montgomery – Tijuanna Adetunji – and she took the opportunity to bash him for the fiasco while at the rally…
“It’s time for the 40 years that we’ve had this man in office to go,” Adetunji said.
Whatever the result, it’s nice to see a racist pig like Alvin Holmes embarrassed and discredited by real people who pursue racial harmony and understanding in their daily lives without having to be coerced by government or leftist cultural scolds.
