Report: Miss. Judge Smacks Mentally Disabled Black Man, Tells Him ‘Run, N–ger, Run’

The Political Agitator response: Damn! Damn! Damn! SMDH! You see it is manure like this that keep me acting some kind of way!

A white Mississippi Justice Court judge is accused of slapping a 20-year-old mentally disabled African-American man and yelling, "Run, n–ger, run," after he fled.

"This is 2014," said former Canton Mayor William Truly, president of the Canton branch of the NAACP, "not 1960, where someone could slap a young man and call out, ‘Run, n–ger, run."

According to the Jackson Clarion-Ledger, the family of Eric Rivers has filed a complaint with police alleging that on May 8 Judge Bill Weisenberger smacked Rivers, who was hanging around the Canton Flea Market looking to make a few bucks unloading trucks. Witnesses claim that Weisenberger slapped Rivers twice and that when Rivers ran the judge allegedly yelled out the racial slur. (Source: Read more)
