Affidavit about Doug Anderson: Whites need not apply

An exhibit recently filed in Ricky Moore vs. Hinds County Board of Supervisors claims Supervisor Doug Anderson made racist statements concerning the denial of Mr. Moore’s application for the position of the Director of Emergency Operations Center. Mr. Moore filed suit after the board hired Jimmie Lewis to replace a retiring Larry Fisher in 2009. The plaintiff was employed as Assistant Director of Emergency Management for twenty years by Hinds County. Mr. Lewis was the director of the Permits & Zoning Department and had a Master’s in Physical Education. Mr. Lewis is black. Mr. Moore is white. Mr. Moore claimed he was denied the position due to his race.

Mr. Moore submitted a sworn affidavit by Rosalind Longino. Ms. Longino has served with EOC since 1976 and is currently the Deputy Director. She claimed Doug Anderson “remarked to me that Ricky J. Moore would not likely be hired for the position of Director because of his membership in the Caucasian (White) race. Mr. Anderson plainly stated ‘how would you feel if Ricky were to get the job as Director.” Ms. Longino replied “it would be favorable because he was the proper person for the position.” The affidavit states Mr. Anderson replied “We are a majority Black board- do you really believe that we aren’t going to put a Black in the position of Director?”

Doug Anderson made the motion to hire Jimmie Lewis. This is not the first time Mr. Anderson would have made such statements if true as earlier this year the long-time supervisor told WJTV he did not want more white voters in his district.

The exhibits posted below contain the transcripts, affidavits, and professional histories of Mr. Moore and Mr. Lewis. Dale Danks represents Ricky Moore. Mr. Moore resigned shortly after his application was rejected. He filed suit on June 17, 2010 after the EEOC gave him permission to do so. Mr. Moore claims Mr. Lewis is unqualified for the position.

The Supervisors hired Charles Graham, the brother of Robert Graham, to replace Mr. Moore. Jimmie Lewis later fired Charles Graham. Mr. Graham currently has a lawsuit in federal court alleging discrimination by the county based upon his age. Mr. Graham is black. Mr. Moore also submitted a transcript of a conversation between Mr. Graham and EOC Director Jimmie Lewis regarding the hiring of his brother. The transcript is posted below (page 8) and discusses where Mr. Lewis can interview Charles Graham away from scrutiny. There is one little interesting aside where they discuss how to avoid giving any information to the Jackson Free Press.

Well now! It is obvious that "whites need not apply" in any arena where TAX PAYER $$$$ covers the payroll in Jackson or Hinds County...Here is a challenge for you..go to the water dept., justice court, city hall, police dept., fire stations, tax collector office... heck, you pick one and count the number of white faces you see.....

Graham's use of MLK is disgusting. Pure and simple.

Leave. While. You. Can.

Please move our offices to Rankin County!

Is anyone surprised? Seriously. The only thing about this story that would shock me is if Anderson is actually forced to resign the way a white man/woman would have to if the races were reversed.

Racism is only the unforgivable sin if perpetrated by white folks. Minorities have a license to practice racism, all the way up to the USAG and the POTUS.

I picked up my wife and belongings and left a great home in Clinton just to get out of Hinds Co.

I love Clinton, but Hinds Co. isn't worth the risk.

Just. Leave.

no problem, just call in the DOJ and ask them to investigate ongoing reverse discrimination. what could possibly go wrong?

Whites need not spend their sales tax dollars in Hinds either.

I feel for the poor people in Clinton. They remind me of the citizens of West Berlin during the 50's. Maybe we can organize a Clinton airlift.

I find it funny how "Caucasians" are notoriously coined as "Racist" but when the "African descendants" practice "Racism", nothing is said. Not a peep. A good example of this occured just last week with one of the leaders of the CBC calling Tea-party elected officials racist. When will this crap stop?!? I agree with the other comment that stated, "Just call in the DOJ and ask them to investigate ongoing reverse discrimination. Wait. I just remembered the Black Panther Party fiasco. Never mind.

Get the hell out of Hinds County. $140+ per sf is a lot in Madison County especially in this market but to rid yourself of this racist ignorant disaster called Jackson and soon Hinds county is simply priceless.

Way to go Jackson and Hinds!

A store clerk shot in a Monday dispute over $3 has died, said Jackson Police spokeswoman Colendula Green.

"Large and in charge" was the mantra during the movement to overtake the gubment of Hinds and Jackson. Now it's being realized. Won't do any good at all to bitch about it.

Curt Crowley said...

I know this isn't the main idea of the post, but I think Peggy Calhoun deserves a great deal of credit for her honesty in informing Mr. Moore of what happened. Credit is also due because she had the decency to pick up the phone and personally express her regret at how the situation developed.

For the past 18 mos. or so it appears that its been Ms. Calhoun vs. the retard super-majority of Graham, Anderson and Smith. I hope she stays in the fight.

KF have you picked up the whiff that Stowers is bending Lumumba's ear to get Airwave a piece of the maintenance business Motorola has with the city?

Wonder is race was an issue when the great BOS laid off employees in Sept 2009?? How many whites got rehired?? How many blacks??? Oh know did I just go there??

Shadowfax said...

Laying off a disproportionately high number of minorities (absent clear and convincing rationale) will bring the EEOC sniffing faster than poop runs through a goose. Laying off a disproportionately high number of whites (whether reasoned or not) is no cause for concern.

Hiring soon after a layoff, same thing.

Sounds like it already is.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
