Alabama lawmaker slams constituent’s ‘backward a**ed, slave holding, snaggle toothed ancestors’

    Alabama State Rep. Joe Mitchell (D-Mobile) caused quite a stir on Wednesday after it became public that he got into a pretty nasty email exchange with a pro-gun constituent.

    In January Rep. Mitchell, who is Black, sent Jefferson county constituent Eddie Maxwell, who is white, a racially charged email in response to Maxwell’s mass email asking state lawmakers “not violate [their] oath of office by introducing additional gun control bills or by allowing those already enacted to remain in the body of our laws.”

Maxwell wrote:

    Can the officers of our state government change our constitution when the change is for-bidden by the people? The Supreme Court of Alabama has ruled that it cannot in an opinion dealing with another matter where change is forbidden. You have sworn to support our constitution. You have defined a violation of an oath of office in an official proceeding as a class C felony (C.O.A. Section 13A1-10-101 perjury in the first degree). Do not violate your oath of office by introducing additional gun control bills or by allowing those already enacted to remain in the body of our laws.

    Rep. Mitchell responded as follows:

    Hey man. Your folk never used all this sheit [sic] to protect my folk from your slave-holding, murdering, adulterous, baby-raping, incestuous, snaggle-toothed, backward-a**ed, inbreed [sic], imported criminal-minded kin folk.

    You can keep sending me stuff like you have however b-cause it helps me explain to my constituents why they should protect that 2nd amendment thing AFTER we finish stocking up on spare parts, munitions and the like.
Bring it. As one of my friends in the Alabama Senate suggested – “BRING IT!!!!”

    Maxwell responded by saying Rep. Mitchell’s response was “not the type of reply I expect to receive from a state legislator.”

    He also criticized other members of the Alabama legislature for not speaking out against Mitchell’s email.

    “The lack of response to your racist comments from your fellow members speaks volumes about the state of our legislature as a whole,” Maxwell wrote.

    Rep. Mitchell then responded to Maxwell’s email again, but offered no apology.

    “Eddie, a person without the power to exercise a threat cannot be a racist because he or she will be eliminated,” Mitchell wrote in the email. “A person who can, by merely stepping back on the sidewalk’ ore [sic] being quiet can support racism and benefit from the ‘first hired,’ affirmative action, preferential treatment fostered by systemic racism and bigotry.”

    “It is unlikely that I, through sharing my many experiences on the receiving end, will convince you of your errors,” Mitchell added. “For that matter, you will never convince me that our discomforts were comparable. Let the next generations resolve this continuing story.”

    He ended the exchange with, “Lock and load. jmitchell.”
