Harry Reid may get away with using the term “negro dialect,” but…
An Alabama police officer lost his job this week after posting on Facebook what is being described in the media as “racist posts.”
Talladega Police Officer Joel Husk was fired Wednesday after sharing two memes, one of which targeted first lady Michelle Obama, according to WBRC FOX6 News.
That meme juxtaposed a photograph of first lady-elect Melania Trump, along with the caption: “Fluent in Slovenian, English, French, Serbian and German,” with a photograph of Michelle Obama and the caption: “Fluent In Ghetto.”
Talladega City Manager Patrick Bryant told the Fox affiliate the posts violate the city’s code of conduct and social media policy.
“We will not tolerate that kind of conduct by any employees,” Bryant said. “We take very seriously our responsibility to treat everyone equally and equitably. We have to make sure we take steps for the community to trust us.”
The second meme Husk shared, according to The Daily Home, was a black and white photo depicting bodies strewn across a battlefield, along with the caption: “Over 620,000 white people died to free black slaves and still to this day not even 1 thank you.”
