Georgia Official Blames Lazy and Violent ‘Black Culture’ For 1-Year-Old Boy’s Death
A county investigator in Georgia will reportedly resign after he posted a “racist” Facebook rant blaming a 1-year-old boy’s death on “black culture.”
This weekend, 1-year-old Rodrickus Robinson was shot and killed after he was caught in the crossfire of a gun battle in Atlanta.
Clayton County Investigator David Daniel took to Facebook to rant about the story, but focused on “black culture” rather than the boy’s tragic death.
“Violence with guns is unfortunately a part of the black culture and will never get better until the government stops supporting them and they are taught to work for what they get and not take from others,” Daniel wrote.
That post set off a storm of criticism, ultimately culminating in his resignation.
“It had nothing to do with the child when it should have been all about the child,” said Stephanie Morgan, one of the people who immediately slammed Daniel’s post.
Clayton County District Attorney Tracy Graham Lawson said she was offended and immediately sent Daniel a disciplinary notice and told him that he was suspended and would be fired.
“My instant reaction was the employee could no longer work in our office,” Lawson said.
“We are going to tender to Mrs. Lawson a letter of resignation,” Daniel’s attorney, Keith Martin, told WSB-TV.
Martin says that Daniel deeply regrets his comment and was simply upset that a child had been killed.
