A Democrat candidate for a seat on New York’s Uptown City Council is turning to race baiting as his primary campaign strategy and recently went all in using the “N” word repeatedly to attack a supporter of his opponent.
Thomas Lopez-Pierre is running for the Uptown City Council seat being vacated by the term-limited Robert Jackson and is outrageously relying on anti-Semitic rhetoric to attack his opponent, Mark Levine. Taking his campaign into racial division, Lopez-Pierre said that Levine would “damage” the community because he is a “white, Jewish candidate.”
But Lopez-Pierre has radically upped his racebaiting with a nasty email he sent to an African American supporter of opponent Levine.
In a vile email, Lopez-Pierre told Levine supporter Brian Benjamin that he was an “uncle Tom N****r b***h,” and went on to say that Benjamin was a “N****r b***h” that had “sold out the Black people of Harlem.”
“I would hope that one day you would give me the legal grounds to b***h slap you,” Lopez-Pierre taunted.
In his last line, Lopez-Pierre accused Mr. Benjamin of engaging in sexual relations with white, Jewish men.
These aren’t Lopez-Pierre’s only eyebrow raising actions. Lopez-Pierre has a long, troubled history. In 2004, he announced his plans to create a Harlem-based social club for up-and-coming African Americans but the whole enterprise had a decidedly sexist bent. While women would be allowed in, Lopez-Pierre promised that no fat women would be allowed to join, nor would any women over 35 years of age.
After this egregious email containing repeated use of the “N” word, Rusty Weiss pointed out that the very city council that Lopez-Pierre wants to join has already symbolically banned the use of the “N” word. One wonders how Lopez-Pierre imagines he’ll fit in with such a rarefied body.
