There's another email, sent out by one of ours

And it's in poor taste. Blue Collar Muse has the story, as well as the pictures. After Christian Grantham at Nashville Is Talking reported that the staffer came from Karen Camper's office (D-87-Memphis), BCM revealed that the sender's name is Blake P. Graves; HOWEVER, Christian notes the following:

UPDATE: 12:11pm - Blue Collar Muse identifies the staffer who sent the email as Blake Graves, but the Tennessee Legislature website does not list a Blake Graves as an employee of the state.
Go over there and look at the pictures, and you tell me if they rise to the same level as what Sherri Goforth sent out.

UPDATE: In comments at PP: Roger Abramson has outed Mr. Graves as an intern.

You're being watched, folks, we ALL are, so don't be doing this stuff.

I am still trying to find out who is sending me all these e-mails about money (in bank accounts) in far off lands. I've given them my checking account numbers, credit cards, passports, money orders, and still haven't gotten any money in return.

What am I doing wrong ?

I am going to hire Newscoma & Ken Marrero (Bluecollarmuse) and find these people so I can collect my millions.

That stuff all came from 4chan. Whoever sent is is a /b/tard.

As you know Tom, I'm in need of unemployment. I'm yours. :)

He's been outed as a Republican -- voting in the GOP primary, member of a Republican club, saying he's a "Bush homeboy" on his facebook page, etc.

LWC, if people (either "one of ours" or "one of theirs")are doing this for attention, why link it and have curiosity seekers give it more attention?

This is how sick humans get attention, and it's how slick humans plant malware, spyware, adware etc. (As in, go see the naked picture of famous women's tennis player--oops, we just got your entire email list for harvest and are turning your computer into a robotic porn zombie.

Fun in the big city.

The mayor titled it "Keepin'It Real" because his primary interest, the one thing in life with which he is not bored, is real--real estate, that is.--ContraltoDelete.

Oh, jeez, now not just login problems but threading problems? Obviously the last remark goes with the Hizzoner thread, and obviously I need to stay awake.

I think the response to the Diane Black/Sharon Goforth story has been too muted. People are discussing if Goforth's suspension is adequate punishment. Heck, no it is not adequate! And actually we don't have more important problems than this one problem- not in Memphis, not in America 2009. Racism is as big a problem as we have. Step back and look at the comments and there is a sort of acceptance of this casual racism from people- particularly Southern Republicans. IT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR. IT IS NOT FUNNY. More importantly people who think it is funny, should not be in the government. They need to be singled out and disgraced. That means Diane Black should be censured for NOT firing Goforth and publicly rebuking her and her email. Apparently in both Black's and Goforth's worlds snide little anti-Black jokes are acceptable. Any of the state officials who received this email and took no action should be censured and preferably they should resign from office.
The strongest reactions should come from White Americans. This is not a Black American problem. This is a White American problem. White America in particular & American society as a whole has never faced up to the pure evil and terror that we perpetrated on our fellow citizens for some 350 years. This is not ancient history. In my lifetime, on my television screen, I watched American police sic dogs on people, turn hoses on people because they wanted to vote. How many times has each of us heard someone declaim that "They are better off because we brought them here." How can we be even debating apologizing for slavery and Jim Crow 144 years after the end of the Civil War! That's the shame of it- after 144 years we still can't say "we wronged you and your ancestors" to our Black countrymen. Instead we hide behind the claim it is nothing we personally did as if none of us are responsible for our collective actions as a nation. Or we tremble & quake & cry "OH, MY- they might ask for reparations." Gee- we pulled Affirmative Action out from under and our Black citizens didn't humble themselves and say "thank you" because we tried to redress their grievances for not even a whole generation. Instead, we complain they might even be getting sassy.
We should not shrug this off as "poor taste". That email picture is indicative of a sick acceptance of racism that is all too common. We need to say to these people- Take your sick minds and get out of the People's House. Good-bye Diane Black. Good Riddance Ron Ramsey. Take your tolerance of intolerance home with you.
