Is Pamela Ramsey Taylor the face of the new America?

I get 11, including one report (greatly exaggerated) of my death in Boston. That makes Pamela over 50,000 times more famous than me.  Not that she is likely to be very happy about it.

On Monday, Pamela Ramsey Taylor of Clay County posted:

“It will be refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified first lady in the White House,” the post read, according to local news station WSAZ 3. “I’m tired of seeing an ape in heels.”

Clay Mayor Beverly Whaling chimed in, commenting on the post: “Just made my day, Pam.”

Beverly Whaling may be feeling a little more circumspect today

Taylor — who has already been removed from her position — is filing a lawsuit against those who have “slandered” her.

 It’s not the appalling racism and the attack on one of the world’s outstanding citizens that amazes me.

 It’s the sheer stupidity of posting something like this online. Bigots like Pamela Ramsey Taylor must feel greatly empowered by Donald Trump’s victory.

Is Clay County Trump territory? You betcha.

Two-tenths of a per cent of Clay County’s residents are African American, according to US Census data. More than three-quarters of the presidential votes cast in the county went to Trump.

Blog site PoliTicks writes: This is the ultimate irony of the anti-“political correctness” crusader – they say something horrendously racist and then feel victimized when they have to face consequences for their actions. Despite what the electoral college victory of Donald Trump might say, America is not a nation where this kind of talk is acceptable, and raising hell over even small incidents like this are critical in the fight against the normalization of racism and bigotry.
