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.

  1. Please, he meant exactly what he said… as they all do until CAUGHT from the good old boys network, he didn’t think his coment would go viral, how stupid of him, this is 2K15.. everything said publicly and on the internet can and will go viral..but these OLD racist HEADS in the south and elsewhere don’t have a clue… they still feel they have to inject their OWN supremacy of racism in the fold as the norm of the day, and if you notice when this happens, its always some OVER 60’s year old FART..making racist comments as they always have.. and still do..but its best they keep these type of racist comments to their OWN behind closed doors.

    What I want to know ..is this by demographics, in the stated of mississippi, whose on welfare of any sort? What are the demographics duly noted..

  2. Why apologize for a statement that is more than likely true. Me personally I say take away the food stamps an sec 8 . Force people to go out an look for work. As long as these things exist blk women will continue to keep laying on their backs pushing kids out one after the other

  3. What a idiot. You to dumb to be black.

  4. There are twice as many whites on food stamp then black. 42% white, 24% black! How about that knockle head!

  5. That person knew what he was saying. He had to think it, before you say it. Apology not excepted you racist pig, from the south!

  6. That is the same generic apology all white people have whenever they are made to apologize. Who is the idiot who agreed with this clown? Anyone who knows anything knows there are more white people on welfare than black people.
