Mary Ann Twitty, a totally “not-racist” former Ferguson, Missouri official fired alongside Captain Rick Henke and Sergeant William Mudd, who chose to resign instead for sending racist e-mails, has spoken out. Twitty assures the public that she’s not a racist — she just finds racism hi-la-ri-ous.
According to Twitty, this is not racist:
This photo of Ronald Reagan holding a baby chimpanzee was included in an e-mail titled “Very Rare Photo.” Twitty sent the e-mail to both Henke and Mudd.
Another e-mail exchanged among the three, included a horrifically racist story about “Leroy’s last child support payment.” This is, according to Twitty, not racist, either:
An e-mail forwarded to Twitty by Mudd, which she then sent to others, reads:
“A black woman in New Orleans was admitted into the hospital [for] pregnancy termination. Two weeks later she received a check for $5,000. She phoned the hospital to ask who it was from. The hospital said, ‘Crimestoppers.’”
“Sure, they look racist,” Twitty told KTVI-TV. “Even when I looked at them, I was thinking, ‘God, that is racist’ – but they were jokes. I meant no harm to anyone, to anybody or whoever sent them to me – I don’t even know – and who I sent them out, the police officers, you know. They went out to more than two people, I’m sure of it. No, I didn’t send them out because I’m racist, because I’m not.”
Twitty says she sent the e-mails because they were funny — not because she’s such a hardcore racist that she doesn’t consider sending these e-mails to be a racist act, or anything. *cough*:
“Humor-wise, yes — not because it was racist or biased, no — just funny joke-wise. I feel bad because that’s not — I don’t want people to look at me and say, ‘She sent those racist jokes out because she’s racist or biased.’ I am not.”
Unlike other racists, Twitty decided a new tactic was in order past the tired, old “I have a black friend” routine. She explained that she had hired two African-Americans earlier this year. “They were more qualified for the job than the four white girls,” she said. “I just want to run my court, and I ran it good.”
Twitty says that she was treated unfairly, and that she feels like she was “raped” and “thrown under the bus” because she “meant nothing bad by it.”
In a scathing report from the Department of Justice, Twitty is accused of setting up a revenue scheme that unfairly targeted African-Americans in the community. She is also friends with Officer Darren Wilson, the Ferguson cop who killed unarmed African-American teenager Michael Brown, and has been accused of fixing tickets for her pals.Twitty says that she “set no fines,” and that she “just abided by them.” Twitty says she was just a victim of the backlash after the entire city of Ferguson was found to be a festering cesspool of injustice.
“They ruined my life for the sake of what was going on in Ferguson,” Twitty said. “I think it’s sickening.”
Glad that’s all cleared up: She’s not a racist; she’s a victim. The one question that remains is, “How long until conservatives set up a GoFundMe for her?”
