“I’m Afraid He Would Put a Bunch of Blacks in Leadership”: Ga. Politician Sorry, Not Sorry for Racial Remark

“I’m Afraid He Would Put a Bunch of Blacks in Leadership”: Ga. Politician Sorry, Not Sorry for Racial Remark
October 06 13:16 2016 Print This Article

A Georgia politician is defending himself after being recorded making racially offensive remarks.

Douglas County Commission Chairman Tom Worthan made the comments during a festival at the courthouse. The man with whom Worthan was speaking, Mark Dodd, was recording the conversation using a cell phone in his shirt pocket. Dodd supports black candidates like Tim Pounds running for office.

 

Fox 5  provides a portion of the recording:

Dodd: What are we going to do if Pounds wins and that girl wins? What’s going to happen? Be honest?

 

Worthan: Probably going to have to pack up and get out of here you know?

 

Dodd: I mean what’s going to happen? Be honest. It’s just me and the lamp post.
Worthan: Well, do you know of another government that’s more black that’s successful? They bankrupt you.”

 

Dodd asked again about sheriff candidate Tim Pounds.

 

Dodd: If Tim was to get it, what do you think would happen?

 

Worthan: I’m afraid he would put a bunch of blacks in leadership positions.

 

Worthan: I’d be afraid he’d put his black brothers in positions that maybe they’re not qualified to be in. So I’d feel more comfortable with Mike Barnhill myself.

To make matters worse, Worthan offered only a semi-apology.

Worthan said he apologized “to anybody that I might have hurt their feelings” and says he has Black and Hispanic friends.

"That girl" is also telling, revealing another white male with a superiority complex.
