DNC Caught Making Fun of Black Woman’s Name in Wikileaks Emails

DNC Caught Making Fun of Black Woman’s Name in Wikileaks Emails

The speakers at the first day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia made touting diversity a priority.

“Our party knows that diversity is not our problem. It is our promise,” Cummings said during a speech on Monday. “We as Democrats, we value every life: black, white, Asian. Every life.”

The Wikileaks email release, however, has cast a shadow over the convention and its commitment to diversity. While Democrats may prioritize diversity in speeches, an email caught insiders making fun of a black woman’s name.

 

An email exchange between Scott Comer, the finance chief of staff and LGBT finance director for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and Zachary Allen, an employee with the firm TIPAH Consulting, makes fun of LaQueenia Gibson’s name. Gibson is an executive assistant for the company Haddad Brands.

LaQueenia is already my favorite. And I did. Praise the Lord.

LaQueenia is a NAME!

 

I’m sorry, boo. I hope you got a raise with this title.

 

On Friday, May 6, 2016, Comer, Scott

Could you imagine the reaction to this email if it came from the RNC?

This is not the first time that the DNC has been accused of discrimination against African-Americans. In 2014, The Daily Beast published a report which found that only 1.7 percent of DNC consultants were black:

PowerPAC+, a political action committee funded by major Democratic donor Steve Phillips, found that of the $514 million paid to consulting firms over this time period, only $8.7 million went to firms that were either minority-owned or had a minority principal.

 This means that only 1.7 percent of the spending by the Democratic National Committee, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee went to minority business enterprises (MBEs). Some 45 percent of Democratic support in 2012 came from racial minorities.

It seems that Democrats are fine with peddling diversity in public, but behind closed doors it’s not much of a priority.

Rather we are not surprised or not we shouldn’t have to put up with it . and the unprofessional pin head that is being paid with tax dollars should either show some accountability for his actions or at least show where he had some kind of action taken. period! Got to hold people accountable and nothing slide,

    Black names are funny to the Dixiecrats, but you can’t make lgbt jokes in those circles.

    It is time for African Americans to drop the Dem party and NOT return to the GOP. Black people left the GOP where those permitted to vote had been voting since Reconstruction (mid 1860s to mid 1870s) because of the GOP’s association with the ending of the “chattel” enslavement of African Americans. However, during the 1930s, as a result of FDR’s two “New Deals” — although not providing for Blacks nearly what they did for whites, Blacks did benefit some — Blacks began leaving the GOP for the Dems.
    Blacks’ exit from the GOP was completed in the early 1960s as Dems (JFK & LBJ) expressed support for the Black Freedom Movement and Civil Rights. ( LBJ and MLK were opposed in these efforts by Ms. Hillary.)  LBJ even had what’s historically known as “Great Society” programs that targeted poverty and racial discrimination. But when he facilitated the transfer of funds from these programs to fight the war in Vietnam, MLK broke ranks with him and criticized that behavior.
    Beginning in the early 1970s, with Nixon’s “southern strategy,” whites began leaving the Dems for the GOP. By Reagan’s term, most whites were voting GOP. Since most Blacks had earlier switched to Dem, a false paradigm was established that the Dems were pro Black interests and GOP vice versa.
    The shame is, through successive generations,  the Black “misleadership” cadre and the institutions they run, being fed hand to mouth by the Dem outfit, never told the uniformed Black collective that the Dem party they thought they were voting for, no longer existed: the days of FDR, LBJ, et al. were long gone.
    Now the Dem party, since the mid 1980s, is a right-wing party beholden to the racist and the rich– just like the GOP. The “New Democrats,” as they call themselves,  came to power in the mid-1980s led by Bill Clinton via “entryism” (infiltrating an organization or movement, in order to control its agenda). They are mostly, or have the values of, white southerners.  They are now firmly in control of the Dem Party. They rode to power in in a new wing of the Dem Party called DLC (Democrat Leadership Council) cofounded by the Koch Brothers.
    Because most Blacks don’t know this, they continue to vote against their own interest. They are prevented from making demands by the Black faces one has seen all week at their convention. The truth is, and most Blacks, if honest, know it — no Black has benefited from the Dems in over fifty years EXCEPT those Negroes up on the podium lying and THEIR family and friends.
    The condition of the Black collective has only gotten worse, no matter what color the picture on the product Blacks bought.
    It’s time for something new.

    I’m voting Jill Stein.

  7. Watchful says:

    Still think ur votes matter in this 2 party(actually 1 party consisting of 2 wings) system? If u do, then keep casting ur ballots and keep gettin’ played.

  8. Johnw11 says:

    Watchful  Actually, as I’ve repeatedly said, I don’t fully disagree with your position. However, since you don’t vote and don’t protest, I’m confused about your point.
    Clearly the electoral process is corrupt. But people allowed it to get that way by withdrawing or acquiescing. For example, the whole world knows that Sanders (actually, the people) was cheated out of winning the Dem’s nomination. Those paying attention were all along aware of it, even before the recent revelations: given the various vote stealing and voter suppression methods that were widely discussed in alternative media.  Yet, much of society, led (hypnotized) by a corrupt media, is carrying on as if nothing happened.  Even the criminals themselves had a convention and carried on for days, feasting, drinking, and lying: basking in their crime, while claiming to be virtuous. Taking advantage of what they know are fools, they talked about the source of who leaked the crime, rather than the abhorrence of the crime itself.
    No surprise there, it is typical of sociopaths / psychopaths to care not about their antisocial behavior, but only about getting caught.
    How not voting will change this problem is beyond me. This is particularly confounding since most people already don’t vote. Remember those “big Black vote” margins “Miz Hilary” got in the south in the recent primary voting? Well, not a single state had a Black turn-out over 14 or so %.
    I think the solution, in large part, is to eradicate the pervasive ignorance among too many, so when they do vote, it won’t be against themselves and their own children’s best interest. As I’ve advocated all along, the focus must change from personality to policy.
    Until that happens, GROWN men and women will continue to allow people to control and rob them by convincing them that if they don’t go along with their deceptive games, the “boogeyman” will get them.

    The following quote pretty much sums up my views on voting, John:

    “It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who COUNT the votes decide EVERYTHING. – Josef Stalin

    Also, if u haven’t already, I would highly recommend u read the book ‘VOTESCAM’ by Jim and Kenneth Collier. It’s one of the most entertaining, informative, and eye-opening books on the voting process in this country, that I’ve read to date. l first read it back around 1995 and what I liked most about that book was that they named names of all the major influential players dating all the way back to the early 70s, some of whom r still very much involved in the voting process to this very day.

    Then I would suggest u visit or revisit Ms.Bev Harris’ site: blackboxvoting.org

    As always, best wishes to u, my good friend.

    This video kinda confirms my previous post, John.

  11. Johnw11 says:

    Watchful  Good post. The problem is most people don’t know about these matters, and those in the know say nothing. Some in the know willingly go along with it, and then have the audacity to expect others to go along as well — asking others to vote for people who steal their election victories.
    There is no disagreement between you and I on the fact of electoral corruption.

  12. Watchful says:

    Johnw11 

    “Some in the know willingly go along with it, and then have the audacity to expect others to go along as well — asking others to vote for people who steal their election victories.”

    Yup, sounds exactly like what ur boy Bernie just did. IJS

  13. Johnw11 says:

    Watchful OK, OK, so Bernie was “brought to heel.” But that has nothing to do with millions of decent people who supported the socioeconomic policies he articulated. I am one of them.
    But my support for Sen. Sanders had nothing to do with his personality. I am not a zealot / fanatic. I focus on POLICIES only.  Therefore, unlike zealots / fanatics regarding their idols of personality cult-worship, I don’t care what you say about him. It was not him, but his policies that I supported.
    Therefore, I make up my own mind regarding who I chose to vote for. I have not given him, nor anyone else the right to make that decision for me. I make my own decisions, based on my own analysis.
    Try again, my friend.

  14. Watchful says:

    Johnw11

    Now now, don’t take it personal, John … I was just pointing out the fact that Bernie betrayed, or worse yet, misled his supporters all along, as this video so clearly points out.

    That’s unauthorized material Watch, it has not gone through the approval process of DNC minions.

    : )

  17. Johnw11 says:

    Watchful  First, I have not taken anything personally. I have already said that I’m not a zealot. Nothing said in this video is new to me. And nothing said critical about Sanders offends me.
    A lot of Sanders supporters are upset. But he said from the start that he would support what’s her name if he was not nominated. So what’s the surprise there? 
    However, I do disagree with your claim that he was not a serious candidate from the start. If that were true, then they wouldn’t have had to steal the nomination.
    As I’ve said previously, since you are too scared to vote, and too sacred to protest, I don’t get your point.

  18. Watchful says:

    Johnw11

    Scared? LOL  Hardly, I’m just not politically naïve enough to still believe that casting a ballot actually matters. Sadly, l seems it takes some of us a lot longer to come to the realization that I came to way back in 1986, which is, that voting doesn’t matter bcuz the system is completely rigged and corrupt to its very core.. C’est la vie, mon ami. : )

  19. Watchful says:

    Johnw11 

    BTW, John … here’s a good article that u might wanna check out when u have time, it’s not long.

    http://www.collective-evolution.com/2016/08/01/who-runs-america-the-truth-about-the-secret-government-why-your-vote-doesnt-matter/

  20. Johnw11 says:

    Watchful I am well aware, and more, about all of that. That’s not what I’m disagreeing with, and you know it.

  21. Johnw11 says:

    Watchful  I think what you are missing is that your solution is not viable. First, most people ALREADY don’t vote. And that behavior has changed nothing. For example, in the recent southern primaries in 7 southern states; Al, Ark, Ga, S. Carorlina, Ten, Tex, and Va, only 12% of voting age adults voted on the Dem side and 23% on the GOP side. That means 88% of people didn’t vote on the Dem side, and 77% didn’t vote on the GOP side.
    So obviously, preaching to the choir, telling people to not do what they are already not doing makes no sense. One reason things are messed up is people have become withdrawn, and leave things in the hands of crooks.
    In my view, and the views of people who think like me, at this point: it is best to educate people about the issues. People need to learn the difference between “personality” and “policy.” That’s what’s not happening enough. It makes no sense to focus on not voting, since that is ALREADY plentiful.

  22. Watchful says:

    Johnw11 

    Doesn’t matter to me that u disagree with me about Bernie, if that’s what u’re referring to, John … I’d be surprised if u didn’t. But, I’m sure if Bernie were to be honest, even he would admit that he knew from the start that TPTB would never allow him to win the demoncratic nomination, but I’m pretty sure he’s not that honest. Bet he enjoyed playin’ his role in the grand farce tho.

  23. Watchful says:

    Johnw11 

    I think u may be underestimating a good segment of the populace, John. I think they understand that no matter who holds office their policies ain’t workin’ to the benefit of the masses, and thus, they’ve come to face the futility in continuing to waste their time and effort on voting and many r beginning to seek alternative means of resolving the collective problems we face. I’m actually encouraged that more and more people r becoming disenchanted with the political process and r abandoning it altogether. I think it’s a sign that they’re no longer afraid to break away from the mental shackles that they’ve been placed in for so long and many r finally freeing themselves to think for themselves and not just go along with the program, i.e.) voting.

    After doing some research on those blk Green Party presidential candidates, I suspect that they may all be nuthin’ more than George Soros-funded BLM shills and would not recommend prospective blk voters to throw their support behind them bcuz they’re most likely just pushing Soros’ hidden agenda. Man, it’s hard to find ANY blk candidates worth supporting these days. SMDH

    When will our people learn the only difference between a republican and a democrat are their names both have a history of oppressing our people. The republicans do it in a overt way and the democrats do it in a covert way both with the same objectives. I for one refuse to vote for any of these deceitful liars.. They have developed a plan which having black to believe that one party is for them and the other is against them. To make matters worse they even use our own people as a tool to manipulate and oppress our people.. Our people need to wake up and realize the political system is another form of racism and slavery.

    Oh please, African people making fun of other African people’s name.   If African people don’t have a problem using their ancestors slave holders name, they make themselves look very, very, very, stupid.  I do not believe there is one CBC member with their free African name.  Here is one of the millions of reason, other race people all over the planet think we are so stupid, because we are, still using their slave holders name.   I do not believe you will get into heaven that stupid, and with the criminal slave holders name.

    I changed a name I had been using over 20 years, a slave holders name, I drew up my own petition, took it to court, telling the judge exactly why I had no use for the name, he signed it right on the spot, no question asked.

  29. shbkyn45 says:

    I need to clear something up.  I thought it was the CBC making fun of her name, but the DNC.  My post is for the DNC individual as well.   If you make fun of Laqueenia’s name, you sure can say the same about all Africans with Europeans names, and Arabs names.
