Racist Mississippi judge slaps black man, yells expletive

racejudge

A judge in Mississippi allegedly slapped a black man and called him the N-word. According to reports by the Clarion Ledger, Judge Bill Weisenberger struck the mentally challenged black man at a flea market.

Eric Rivers, 20, would help vendors and customers load items to earn extra money at the market. Witnesses told authorities that Rivers asked Weisenberger if he needed help and the racist judge slapped him twice. Weisenberger then yelled, “Run, n—–, run” as Rivers ran away in fear.

Rivers’ family filed a police complaint against Weisenberger and the local NAACP is calling for the judge to stop hearing cases until the investigation is complete.

Weisenberger continues to serve as judge, but the case will be presented to a grand jury.

    This judge should be fired right away. People in Mississippi should come together and put a stop to the racism in the south. What are you so afraid of African American have the right too do what every they want in this world stand-up and fight.
