Goforth With A Slap On Your Racist Wrist

Abby Zimet



With pressure building on Tennessee GOP State Sen. Diane Black to fire
Sherri Goforth, the aide who sent out that hilarious racist e-mail
above, Black has instead sent Goforth a “strongly worded reprimand.” In it, she advises Goforth not to send communications that are
“derogatory regarding any minority,” adding, “I look forward to
working together in the future within these guidelines.”

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
