According to Great Falls Tribune, Chief U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull admitted he sent a racist email about the president from his courthouse chambers.
Cebull admitted to sending the email to seven people, including his personal email. The judge acknowledged that the email was racist; however, he denies being racist.
The email read:
“Normally I don’t send or forward a lot of these, but even by my standards, it was a bit touching. I want all of my friends to feel what I felt when I read this. Hope it touches your heart like it did mine.
“A little boy said to his mother; ‘Mommy, how come I’m black and you’re white?'” the email joke reads. “His mother replied, ‘Don’t even go there Barack! From what I can remember about that party, you’re lucky you don’t bark!'”
According to the article, this was Cebull’s reasoning: “The only reason I can explain it to you is I am not a fan of our president, but this goes beyond not being a fan,” Cebull said. “I didn’t send it as racist, although that’s what it is. I sent it out because it’s anti-Obama.”
LMAO. This made me laugh a little. I cannot believe how unprofessional a federal judge can be. First of all, to send this type of email from his work is highly unprofessional and can get you in trouble. Second of all, to send this email at all is alarming because it is about our president and it is very racist. Third, to say you are not racist, you are just anti-Obama is a lie, I think. This email is telling me that they are one in the same. You did not send a joke about his policies or how he runs his office. Instead, you sent an email attacking his racial background, which to me is racist AND anti-Obama.
