Georgia Dem Teresa Tomlinson Doesn’t Think Black Pastors Are Serious People

This is Teresa Tomlinson talking to a group in Decatur, GA the other day about her 2010 mayoral race in Columbus, GA. She ran in that race against Zeph Baker, an African-American megachurch pastor who is highly respected.

But Tomlinson says the voters rejected him because they wanted a serious person with a steady hand. The NAACP is already criticizing Tomlinson for being out of touch with the African-American community. Now she doesn’t think a pastor in that community with a massive following is a serious person or could be a steady hand.

Geez. How tone deaf can one be in their white privilege?
