Our Thoughts: Bigotry

Jonny Brown was appointed to the Board of Elections as the Rockdale Republican Party representative.

In a blog written on a local political website, Brown wrote a piece called the “Little White Plane.” (To read the entire blog, go to rockdalenews.com, Opinion section, next to this editorial online).

This piece, without a doubt, is one of the most bigoted and racist pieces we have seen.

We don’t believe that a vast majority of people in this county feel like Mr. Brown. Bigotry of any kind is not acceptable; Mr. Brown’s kind is the worst.

In writing the piece, Jonny Brown also jeopardized the stability of the election board and opened the door for people to question the fairness of its decisions.

As someone who has taken up the responsibility of sitting on the elections board, Mr. Brown should be held to a higher standard of conduct. 

He needs to resign and apologize to the good people of Rockdale County; nothing less would be acceptable
