Dallas Commissioner Tells Complaining Citizens “All You Are White. Go To Hell”

The Dallas County Commissioner’s Court meeting this week became the scene of a racially charged incident after citizens confronted Commissioner John Wiley Price. Price, who is black, responded by telling the citizens “All of you are white. Go to hell!”

The citizens were upset over the recent departure of county Elections Administrator Bruce Sherbet, who was the Elections Administrator for 24 years. Price and Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins were blamed for forcing him out. The clip above does not include comments by one citizen that were clearly inappropriate and over-the-top.
The last public speaker, Jeff Turner, referred to Price as “a certain member of the court” who he described as “the Chief Mulllah of Dallas County.” That should not have been allowed as violating basic rules of civility and decorum.

Price interrupted Turner several times, yelling at him, “don’t call me Chief Mulllah” and “call me by my name.” After Jenkins ended the hearing, Price stood up and yelled “All of you are white. Go to hell!” He then proceeded to tell the citizens repeatedly to “go to hell.”

Regardless of the provocation, such remarks are beyond the pale for any person — particularly an elected official. For those supporting Price, consider how we would feel if a white politicians dismissed a group of citizens as black and told them to go to hell.

This is not the first outburst from Price:

  1. If the American people were to see just how vile and deadly of an evil true Racism is, they would work a hundred times harder to bury it, as they do in digging it up. We would understand that Racism and Racial Prejudice are two completely different things.

    The latter is a product of ignorance, where the former is a product of Evil.

    True Racism has very little if anything to do with the color of one’s skin, and everything to do with the color of one’s heart.

    One need only ask its survivors, if the can be found, for very few survive in its presence. The only way to grasp even a glimpse of its destructive nature, is to visit those places it has been, Rwanda, Laos, the Congo, Southern Sudan, and now ongoing in Western Darfur.

    The remarks made here, are those born out of the ignorance of those who made them. It is upon such ignorance that the evil of Racism feeds; all who seek to evoke it should be held in equal distain. There can be no just grounds surrendered to it.

    “Snoop looks to have a good hand with a whisk, I think he’s made brownies before.”

    Ya think? 😀

    Going back about a year or so ago, my daughter and I were hanging out in her room one night with the TV on for background noise. It was tuned to MTV when “Cribs” came on and it featured Snoop. The camera showed him by his front door and we could distinctly see in the background a side table with a bowl on top just brimming with joints, and I thought, “What a great way to greet your guests!”

  7. It appears that Commr. Price lacks the temperament and emotional maturity necessary for public office.
