When a black person makes racial comments we don't get as mad, so why are we getting so mad at this guy? ... It's getting really old, people.

It isn't the president. It is the resentful, intolerant, and ignorant reactions by ... the people that fuel unrest and insecurity. It has been far too many years of irresponsible citizenship and poor decisions by the public.

This is a disgustingly sad reality being relayed by a tone-deaf official. Everything about this is terrible. I'm sure it will make national news. Way to go, hometown!

I don't think Sheriff Hammond made racist remarks. He just admitted that part of the unrest, especially in this area, is because the president is black. That's true. There is nothing wrong in him stating facts.
