Neshoba: Don’t seat Ike Brown

The Neshoba Democrat speaks boldly against Ike Brown. The Mississippi Democratic Party is in such chaos, I don’t know who is to blame: Jamie Franks, Barbara Blackmon, or both. But its fun to watch. Lets see what they do Saturday.

No one would tolerate Republicans putting a white county political boss who had been convicted of violating the civil rights of black Republicans on their state executive committee.

But supporters of Noxubee County political boss Ike Brown are seeking to do just that by giving him a seat on the state Democrat Party’s executive committee.

Brown, who is black, was recently prosecuted by the Justice Department for violating the voting rights of white Democrats in Noxubee County.

Democrats this Saturday will apparently vote on Brown again.

Mississippi Democrats who have worked so hard to unify the party and move the state forward should be outraged and embarrassed at even the notion of seating Brown.

Giving a racist as vile as Ike Brown a place of prominence sends the wrong message about the Democrat Party and Mississippi.
