Once again Jamilah Lemieux, Senior Editor, Digital, for Ebony Magazine, is displaying her hatred of people from other races and political persuasions. But now she has added police officers to her venom. Two years ago she trashed former RNC staffer Raffi Williams because she thought he was white, now she is claiming that racist crimes against Caucasians and or Cops could not be called hate crimes (she didn’t mention if they could be called “don’t like very much” crimes)
We first met Ms. Lemieux in 2014 when she had a very public twitter exchange with then RNC Deputy Press Secretary Raffi Williams. Now Raffi is not only African-American but he claims he has been that race his entire life. I have been friends with him for only about three years so I can’t vouch for his race before then. But because Raffi is an honest guy, I tend to give him the benefit of the doubt. Either way I can verify that he was a Black Man in 2014.
On Twitter Ms. Lemieux was dumping on Ben Carson, saying he was insane for his beliefs on race, politics, and “anything else other than his medical work.” She suggested that Dr. Carson’s conservatism taint any ideas he may have. Enter Raffi who made the horrible (to Lemieux) suggestion that she learn more about Carson before judging him. For some strange reason, Ms. Lemieux thought Raffi was white, and because she though he was white she didn’t want to hear his opinion.She tweeted, “Oh great, here comes a White dude telling me how to do this Black thing.” When she figured out he was black she apologized, but because he worked for the RNC said “However, I care about NOTHING you have to say.” Thanks to some intrepid reporting the story went viral. RNC Chairman Reince Priebus demanded an apology, and actually got one from the Ebony Editors.
