Is it just Sarkes or does it seem like the Black Man (and Woman) have increasingly become victims of being harassed for no other reason than they are Black in a White Man’s world.  This Sarkes Corner is the 12th installment, in less than a year, in a soon to be Award Winning series of “Blacks in White America”.  Sarkes anticipates a Pulitzer or maybe even a Nobel Prize for this powerful series.

Sarkes also questions the timing of these incidents with the rise of the “Salt of the Earth” Americans, empowered by the Orange Profit, all who proudly wear their Red Make America Great Again hats.  “Many People Say” that these Great MAGA Hat-wearing Americans are NOT RACISTS!.  Rather, they have a legitimate reason to confront the Black Man in places where they do not normally go.  Hmmmmmm.

White MAGA Hat-wearing Americans ARE NOT RACISTS!

A White Campground Worker in Starkville, Mississippi was fired this week after she was caught on video pulling a gun on a Black couple and ordering them to leave the Campground.  The Black victims, Jessica and Franklin Richardson, decided to go to the lake to have a picnic. Not five minutes after arriving at the lake, a Pick Up truck pulled up and a White Lady screamed at the Black Couple, jumping out of her pickup truck with a Gun.

The Black couple had stumbled into an area near the lake that is owned by Starkville Kampgrounds of America (KOA) and is technically private property. Black Woman Richardson stated; “This lady literally just pulled a gun on us because we’re out here and didn’t have reservations.”  After looking down the Barrel of a pistol, Black Woman Richardson told the White Woman; “All you had to do was tell us … We would have left. You didn’t have to pull a gun.”

The Richardsons are Black and like to Picnic

KOA released a statement Tuesday saying the White employee had been fired after Richardson’s video went viral.  “KOA does not condone the use of a firearm in any manner on our properties or those owned and operated by our franchises,” said group spokesman Mike Gast. “The employee involved in the incident has been relieved of her duties.”
