Mississippi Lawmaker Apologizes for Saying “All the Blacks” in His Town Are on Food Stamps

A Mississippi lawmaker has apologized for saying during a news interview Gene Aldaythat the blacks in his hometown were on food stamps and didn’t work.

Rep. Gene Alday (R) apologized to his colleagues in the Mississippi House of Representatives for comments he made in the Clarion Ledger newspaper.

“I was wrong to say what I did, and there is no excuse for my behavior,” Alday said during his apology. “I am so sorry. I made a great mistake.”

Alday said during an interview with the paper that he comes “from a town where all the blacks are getting food stamps and what I call ‘welfare crazy checks.’ They don’t work.”

Alday also insisted that he couldn’t get treated at the hospital because medical staff there were too busy treating gunshot wounds.

“I liked to died. I laid in there for hours because they (blacks) were in there being treated for gunshots,” he said.

The lawmaker had previously defended himself by claiming that his words were taken out of context by the reporter who interviewed him.

“I’m not a bad person, and that makes me look like an evil person,” Alday said Monday. “I didn’t do anything wrong. The guy made me look like a fool.”

Even Republicans distanced themselves from Alday after his comments.

“I strongly reject his comments condemning any Mississippian because of their race,” said Gov. Phil Bryant, “Those day are long past.”

“I condemn the comments recently made by Rep. Gene Alday,” said House Speaker Philip Gunn, also a Republican. “They do not reflect the views of the Republican party, nor of the leadership of the House of Representatives.”

Some in the conservative media, however, have supported Alday.

“…. an examination of Census Bureau statistics — taking away racial factors — shows some truth in what Alday said. There are a lot of people on welfare in Mississippi, and the number of victims of gun violence is higher than the national average,” reported PJ Media.
