John Wiley Price Tells Citizens To “Go To Hell”

By Kent Chapline & Bud Gillett, CBS 11 News

Updated 10:25 p.m. Feb. 15 2011

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Tuesday’s Dallas County Commissioner’s Court meeting erupted into an argument between Commissioner John Wiley Price and a citizen, ending with Price repeatedly telling several citizens to “go to hell.”

The exchange started during the public speaking portion of the meeting, which happens after the commissioners have gone through their weekly agenda.

Six citizens addressed the court. All of them talked about the recent controversial departure of county Elections Administrator Bruce Sherbet.  Sherbet, who was the Elections Administrator for 24 years, said he felt Price and Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins forced him out.

The last public speaker at Tuesday’s meeting, Jeff Turner, began by stating that he would refer to “a certain member of the court” — Price — as “the Chief Mullah of Dallas County.”

Court rules state that public speakers may not address individual commissioners by name.

As Turner spoke, he continued to call Price “Chief Mullah.” Price interrupted Turner several times, yelling at him, “don’t call me Chief Mullah” and “call me by my name.”

Jeff Turner explains why he called Price “Chief Mullah.”

The New Oxford American Dictionary defines “mullah” as “a Muslim learned in Islamic theology and sacred law.”

Turner continued speaking, ignoring Price’s ongoing interruptions.

At that point, Jenkins adjourned the meeting.

As Price stood to leave, he looked at Turner and the five other citizens who addressed the court. Price said to them, “All of you are white.  Go to hell!”

Price repeated “go to hell” three more times. An unknown member of the audience said, “You should be ashamed!”

“I’m not ashamed!” Price answered. “I’m not ashamed! Go to hell!”

Jenkins, Price and the other commissioners then left the courtroom to hold individual private meetings with constituents and others, which they traditionally do following the meeting of the entire court.

Cecile Newberry Fernandez talked to 1080 KRLD about her experience of being shouted down by John Wiley Price during public comments.

Turner left the commissioner’s court immediately following the meeting.

At 3:00pm Commissioner Price spoke with 1080 KRLD to explain why he chose to use the words he did.

Warning: Interview Contains Offensive Language

Later in the afternoon, Price released a written statement about the episode in commissioners court.  It contains offensive language. Here is Price’s statement, published in its entirety exactly as he sent it to us:

In the absence of a fair and balanced media outlet in Dallas, I wanted to submit a statement that offers my perspective of an “encounter” that took place at Dallas County today. Unfortunately, my comments were broadcasted without the benefit and the full context which they were made.

I have been patient and accommodating in every regard as it pertains to the recent resignation of a Dallas County employee. There are laws and business practices in place that govern the discussion of personnel matters and I will honor and respect them. I even went as far as to grant a candid one-on-one interview with the Dallas Morning News and have done countless interviews with others.

However, in open court today, after every considerate attempt to discuss the matter further, one of the speakers shot off a racial slur. “Chief Moolah” has its roots in a slang that was used against Italian immigrants and was later used by the same to defame or discredit African Americans. The speaker continued to use terms like “tribal” and his intent to make race an issue was obvious. “Nigger” is “Nigger,” spoken overtly or incognito.

My history and record will reflect that I am one whose tolerance is limited or non-existent when it comes to racial slurs. The comments were bad enough, but to have them hurled by a member of the Tea Party, known for their racial insensitivity, was more than I plan to absorb.

This is in no way an attempt to apologize to those with who felt the need to infuse race into an otherwise orderly meeting. But all of my friends, black, white and brown alike, are well aware that I am always willing to debate, but never at the expense of my race and my heritage.

CBS 11 caught up with Price Tuesday night at an event featuring filmmaker Spike Lee.  Price continued to say he was frustrated on how the media was covering his statement, but said his statement was not an apology.

Editor’s note: When we first reported this story, we said Price “shouted” at citizens in the meeting.  After watching our videotape of the exchange more closely, we changed our description to “Price said.”  We feel this better characterizes the exchange.  Also, we originally reported that Turner had called Price “chief moolah,” not “Mullah.”  Based on Price’s statement, above, it appears that’s also what Price heard.  We talked to Jeff Turner later in the day and he said he intended to call Price “Chief Mullah,” but acknowledged that he might have mispronounced it as “moolah.”  We have changed the references in our story to “Mullah.”

    Why are Dallas County people in his district still voting for him?

    • J. Baldwin

      Because his district is jeremandered!! LOOK at it!! It curves around and takes in “special areas” of town which just happen to vote for Price!!

      When this democracy ever gets back to drawing districts based on the neighborhood concept [if it ever does], the NATION and COUNTY and CITY will change politically……….and not one minute before!


      • David Smith

        That would be Gerrymandered…as in Elbridge Gerry, signer of the Constitution of the United States…just in case anybody was curious. ;-)

        J B, does his district looks like it was designed by delay?

      • L. Davis

        David, it is gerrymander which means to divide a geographic area into voting districts so as to give unfair advantage to one party in elections. It has nothing to do with Elbridge Gerry.

      • ab

        The word gerrymander (originally written Gerry-mander) was used for the first time in the Boston Gazette newspaper on March 26, 1812. The word was created in reaction to a redrawing of Massachusetts state senate election districts under the then governor Elbridge Gerry (pronounced /ˈɡɛri/; 1744–1814). In 1812, Governor Gerry signed a bill that redistricted Massachusetts to benefit his Democratic-Republican Party. When mapped, one of the contorted districts in the Boston area was said to resemble the shape of a salamander. The exact author of the term gerrymander may never be definitively established. It is widely believed by historians that Federalist newspaper editors Nathan Hale, Benjamin and John Russell were the instigators, but the historical record gives no definitive evidence as to who created or uttered the word for the first time.[1] The term was a portmanteau of the governor’s last name and the word salamander.

      • Marlon Cole

        If the white man had not been so evil making us slaves and then formulating Jim Crow to punish us with his hate there would be no need for vote redistricting with the 1964 civil rights bill. Mr. turner and his tea party crooks know what they are doing. They want total control of America. What can a white man do for a black community. Nothing. The Tea Party wants to get rid of the redistricting clause in the ’64 Voting Rights Act so they can go into predominantly black, latino, and Mexican communities and take over. That is why Mr. Turner race baited Mr. Price so he can give the man a bad name to get impeached from office.

      • Justin Dean Job

        Race bated or not he should rise above it otherwise your just doing exactly what the oppositions wants.

      • Geec

        Tribal and Moolah are not enough to nit-pick over and besides HE IS THE ELECTED OFFICIAL, HE IS NEVER SUPPOSED TO PULL OUT RACE EVEN IF THE CITIZEN DOES!

        What the hell is wrong with you? Jim Crowe laws (even the tiniest fragments that were left after all of those terrible white people joined in a social revolution to tolerate the poorly behaving afro-american culture.) ended universally before I was even born and I am almost 30! Cut out the nonsense, that is the past and the new generation is ignorant to it.

        This is why I live on the north side of Tarrant county, because I can avoid that racist little world people like you must live in bringing up ancient history or nit picking little issues to win arguments.

      • Suzanne

        The white man did not make slaves. If you would read history you will see that slaves have been around since the beginning of time. In fact the muslims and black tribe leaders sold African blacks into slavery. Please read some history before you make a blanket statement about the white man. Also, remember not all “white” people either had slaves or approved of slavery, thats why it was abolished. Slavery is still going on to this day. There is a huge slave trade of children, young adults, women being sold a sex slaves all over the world. All black people in the USA are not decendents of slaves, some came here by choice. By the way many “white” people were brought to this country as indentured slaves. The Muslim countries use slave labor they import from India, Africa and other middle eastern countries. Slavery is still thriving, what are you going to do about it for the rest of the people in this world suffering right now because they are being held against their will?

      • Ping

        Wrong Marlon, Price has had a bad name for years. It’s sad to see people like JW Price cling to the race card in an attempt to maintain relevance. His district should be ashamed. Turner nailed it, Price has created a method to receive compenation by manipulation and race baiting. Perhaps this latest outburst will be the nail in his political coffin but I doubt it because of people such as yourself who refuse to open their eyes and see reality.

      • Tina Ferrer

        Hey Marlon, just a heads up. We had nothing to do with slavery 150 friggen years ago. I owe you nothing. Once again the black population is 12.9% and yet you and folks like you think you’re a majority. You have no idea how trotting out the race card beginning 2008 with Obama has damaged irreparably the socio relationship between whites and blacks in America. I was just minding my own business when the race card began to hurl and it hasn’t stopped yet. You are a minority Marlon in a group of 12.9%. Get over it and move forward as an American or keep poking the overwhelming white majority in the eye. Your choice……

      • AuntieTaqiyya

        Marlon–Learn your history Honey. The black, sub-Saharan African man was enslaved by the brown, Saharan Muslim man! The Brown, Saharan Muslim males found the Black, pantheist (that means worshippers of many Gods), sub-Saharan tribes to be extremely primitive–mere animals. The muslim ruling class treated Blacks like disposable garbage: enslaving them, selling them, killing them, starving them at every turn. Most black male slaves were either killed or castrated by their Muslim masters. (They were not allowed to reproduce with other black slave women, let alone with brown, Muslim women!!!!) Most black slave-women were domestic slaves to Muslim women or Muslim merchants. NO BLACK SLAVE-WOMEN WERE SOLD AS CONCUBINES. BROWN MUSLIM MEN REFUSED TO REPRODUCE (THROUGH EITHER RAPE OR LOVE), WITH BLACK SLAVE-WOMEN. THEY WERE CONSIDERED UGLY AND UNCLEAN. On the other hand, ALL WHITE SLAVE WOMEN (CAPTURED FROM EASTER EUROPE), WERE SOLD TO BROWN, MUSLIM MEN AS CONCUBINES! THE BROWN, MUSLIM SLAVE-MASTERS CONSIDERED WHITE, EASTERN EUROPEAN WOMEN TO BE GREAT BEAUTIES; WORTHY OF REPRODUCING THEIR SONS! So, learn your history before you spout off ignorant untruths, you pathetic dolt!!

      • Harpotoo

        The White Man Tax Payer has been supporting your Black generational welfare past present & definitely FUTURE! If success and Democracy were a Black Thang MAYBE just MAYBE it could be found in 1 country/state in Africa! Yeah folks far and wide are daring the border seas and air to try and get into Africa and live amongst the Black man!

      • Iceberg Slim

        Wow, I love the trolls blaming this encounter on whitey. The tea-party wants to control everybody? No, that would be the democratic party. The tea-party wants the govt to leave them the he!! alone. It’s idiots like this Price character who only see the world in black vs white that keep us apart. Get over it.

      • kj

        I respose to reader Marlon Cole, he asks “What can a white man do for a black neighborhood ?” I would like to tell him that for one, the white man pays all the bills and keeps the heat on for one.
        Blacks in America are incredibly fortunate to be here, guaranteed federal jobs just by checking a box indicating that your skin is dark- what a joke America has become.

      • Jon

        Trivia alert –
        Elbridge Gerry did not actually sign the Constitution, from Wikipedia:
        “Gerry was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence and the Articles of Confederation. He was one of three men who refused to sign the Constitution because it did not then include a Bill of Rights.”

      • Why Dallas?

        I think I know why Dallas has a high crime rate. When you look up to a RASIST like Mullah Price, as what it takes to be a big boy, then your only option is crime. The man may have been out of line to a certain degree but for a elected official to come down on the citizens…….well it is starting to look like Washington DC, ” Yea you can come along, but you will have to sit in the back of the bus” Barack Hussan Obama. I am starting to see a pattern.

      • Truth

        “What can a white man do for a black community. Nothing” – Marlon, what has your first black president (well 2nd if we count Clintoon) done for you? Oh that’s right 16% unemployment for African Americans, about time you gave up whining about slavery (especially since you never were a slave or even close to it) and stop looking for who is going to ‘do something’ for you and do it yourself, or you will always be stuck at the bottom and used by the Democrats as cheap free votes, even your own ‘black’ president uses you while he enjoys his fancy lifesyle on the tax payers dime, what a laugh! (BTW I’m not white I am a minority that doesn’t sit aorund crying for myself but made things happen!)

      • Irritated Mama

        Marlon Cole – if you believe that someone can’t help another because that person is “white” you live in a very ignorant and sad place. Talk about a racist attitude! At some point in history almost every group was a slave to someone else. Not all white people were pro-slavery…again, nice racist comment. Those that were slaves and those that saw a tiny glimmer of freedom from slavery generations ago would have wanted so much more for today’s African Americans. Marlon, people of all races know about pain, suffering, and hope. People of all races also know how to blame others for their problems and never take responsibilty for their CURRENT state of affairs.

    • Mike Smith

      Why is this Mulllah still in Office.

    • kindandgentle

      Typical double standard. A black can say anything they want and get away with it, if not patted on the back for it by their co-horts. Imagine if a white politician was stupid enough to say to the taxpayers he is paid to represent and said, “You’re all black, go to hell.” Every professional race baiter, such as Sharpton and Jackson would be demanding his scalp and getting it. I know I’ll never move to Dallas: too many black racists.

    • A. Levy

      Because they’re also black and want to make sure their free govt. “goodies” keep flowing. Mr. Price is an excellent example of why slavery must be brought back.

    • Tom

      Because he has a majority black or minority district, that’s why. JWP has been a jack-donkey since I was in high school, 35 years ago. He is and always will be an embarassment to Dallas County.

    • Becka

      Because they are black. Duh.

    • Jdog

      I would simply say “You first Johnny Boy!”

    • red

      Having been a victim of reverse racism I will say this: if you believe racism exists then you are actively looking for it’s existence. So what if someone doesn’t like you because of your race? There is absolutely NOTHING this person’s dislike for you can accomplish to hold you from your pursuit of Life, Liberty, and Happiness. Stop egging this message of hatred on and move on with yourself! I was raised in a culture of dislike for certain ethnic groups. It’s my chioice if I want to continue the hatred…. just like everyone that was raised that way. Misery loves company!

      @Matt Hinterlong, as opposed to the other 49 states where all the media is alll liberal controlled, and that that is not, i.e. talk radio, your liberal brethren are trying to forced the “fairness” doctrine to put an end to that.

    • G Fred

      I’ve been shocked for years that this man (JWP) is not fired, impeached, or whatever it takes for him to be removed from office. He is blatantly an anger filled racist who has repeatedly shown to be out of control. There is no place in politics for this kind of hatred, yet he remains ‘safe’ for some reason. I’d like to say “I’m shocked”, but I’ve seen Mr. Price too many times, with his own words, reveal his true character…or lack of. Anyone that continues to vote for this man should be ashamed as well. Unfortunately, most will probably be ‘proud’ of him and just ignore this kind of rhetoric.

    • lightning rasmussen

      There’s no excuse. Get rid of him. He obviously thinks he can do whatever he wants. Very unprofessional. He doesn’t deserve to be Commissioner.

    • Greg S

      He also said “you too fat boy!”. WOW!

      • Jason

        Black hole is not negative term. It is referred to that because it consumes light waves and we all know when there is no light there is darkness, which is black. When the term is used it is meant that there is a metaphorical vortex analogous to a “black hole”. What an idiot.

      • james

        well whats inaccurate about calling someone a “fat boy” if he’s indeed fat??

      • Gerry

        By that logic, what’s so bad about calling someone a “mullah”, if he is indeed a mullah?

      • Irritated Mama

        JWP has shown his “true colors.” He is the racist. If he was white and the citizens were black and he said…”Y’all are all black. Go to Hell,” this would be the national leading story on every major network. The media is too afraid to call him on it.

        Clay Jenkins and all the others sitting there like they forgot how to speak should also be ashamed of themselves!

        Also, how does JWP know if Turner was saying mullah or moolah…did he write it? This is Texas, y’all….we’ve got accents!

        JWP, you can’t be effective and it’d be best if you just quietly resigned…sort of like what’s that guys name that had to resign last month…….

      • jec

        Another example of JWP, stupid, ignorant race baiting. He apparently doesn’t know what a “black hole” is. Maybe he thought he said, “black ho”. He’s stupid trash and needs to be taken to the curb.

        I’m sure they’ll whitewash this commissioner’s racist statements, and assumptions. What’s more racist than assuming that someone is motivated by racism merely because they are white and use a term like black hole. Whitewash and black holes have properties that are very useful in making analogies, metaphors and the like.

        A.) That is patently false.
        B.) None of these mediums are geographically limiting, thus can not dominate a region or city. Last I checked, you could hear NPR, watch CNN and read HuffPo pretty much anywhere.

        Wiley Price deserves a better suit than that ridiculous pimp outfit he is wearing. Obviously the White man has been holding him down. I’ll be glad to chip in and help him buy something that will help him be taken seriously. The same goes for that hair.

        As for the rest? It looks as if the citizens pushed him a little, and he revealed his true racist nature.

      • Matt Hinterlong

        People should not be calling anyone chief mullah, anywhere. especially dallas where the news is dominated primarily by right wing radio, tv, and internet.

      Are whites ashamed of their racist history?

      why are whites trying to place blacks on trial for doing the same thing they’ve done for years?
      Is it because you’re racist?
      Go JWP!
      As for the rest of you (if I may quote JWP), GO to HELL!!.. Quick!!!

      • Gerry

        Even IF what you say is correct, why are Blacks so eager to emulate the bad behavior of a fringe group of White society? Why are you so eager to excuse behavior from a Black man that you would condemn from a White man? Is this about correcting and eliminating bad behavior, or perpetuating it and getting revengs?

        For the record, I have no racist past. You may believe that it is acceptable to lump all people into a single group because of their color. Most of us do not accept such racist attitudes.

      • thrasher

        mikey j, I pity you for your ignorance.

        If this person would’ve been white, sharpton and jackson would be on their way down there as we speak, looking for the tallest tree to hang him from.

        But, since he is black and therefor incapable of being racist (yeah right), he’ll be given a pass and probably even applauded for his actions.

        The utter hypocrisy is just laughable.

        Blacks are ashamed and angry because they didnt free themselves and it was they people they hate that did. There was NO black led revolution for freedom. Just a bunch of sappy white housewives. They freed you. That and a lot of good old white boy blood. Thats why you kill each other, loot your own town and homes, and basically wont do a damn thing to support yourselves minus a few exceptions that realized that to make it here you just have to work hard at something other than being a vindictive punk! Also, I am NOT white either

    • Geppetto Gromm

      Granted, Mr. Price was verbally challenged in the court room. But what Mr. Price said in response was blatantly racist, specifically telling a group of people because of their skin color – specifically calling them all ‘white’ and telling all the ‘white people’ to shut up – is racist. Period. PERIOD. America has come too far to allow this kind of hate speaking garbage into positions of power. Mr. Price then ACTUALLY used the ‘N’ word in his written response. Unacceptable. UNACCEPTABLE. Uncalled for. Disgusting. Unforgiveable. NOONE in that court even came close to using that word, in spite of Mr. Price’s illogical rantings in his written response. Mr. Price then went on (in his written response) to arbitrarily call Tea Party activists ‘racist’. And during his court room temper tantrum he arbitrarily called a gentleman in the crowd ‘fat boy’. Having listened closely to the video clip above these comments the only ‘racist’ I saw in that court room was Mr.Price. Listen folks, if you love this country, vote out classless, racist morons who dare use this kind of language and then have the nerve to point the finger at others. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. did not live and die for us to be at each others throats. He lived and died, so that we could live together in a state of grace and equality with one another. Politicians and media: Stop using ‘color’ to divide Americans. Voters: Stop voting in politicians who abuse their power by using hate speech to divide us as a people. This nonsense has got to stop. Perhaps we should criminalize ALL SUCH SPEECH – REGARDLESS of the color of the person using the language of hate. That might ‘force’ people to behave. I proudly served in the USANG and personally worked with hundreds of good Americans of all colors, all ethnicities, all backgrounds. We were all on the same team, we looked out for each other, and we behaved. Racially divisive language has no place in the government of a diverse, democratic society. Seriously, if you love America, vote out racist politicians like Mr. Price and make it your mission to put strong, fair, responsible Americans into positions of authority. Take America back for the PEOPLE. We will either work together for the COMMON good, or we will lose everything. That’s just a historical given folks.

      • Dave F

        Marlon Cole. A racist is someone who hates based on race. A person who is 100% in control of a person financially, emotionally, economically, and educationally would be known as a mother of a young infant. I understand that some definitions have changed over the past few years. Once apon a time I remember a businessman, later a governor, who stood in front of his business with a bat to keep out people who he objected to based on ract. He was, quite rightfully understood to be a racist pig. However recently the definitions have changed a bit, and we are told that all whites are racists and blacks cannot be racists. I’m having a bit of trouble with that, I think it dilutes the stuff that Martin L. King fought against, but again, I am told that this is the way it is and I am not to make waves, because of course I am a racist. However if certian people who belive in the discrimination against people because of the color of their skin are no longer racists pigs, that still leaves them as pigs. I can live with that. Hopefully, Mr. Cole, we can both agree on that. You, sir, are a pig.

        Best, most level-headed, well-thought-out comment I’ve seen all day. Thank you!

      • Marlon Cole

        All that has been said why you call the man a derogatory Muslim name? I mean that sounds like race bating. A racist is anybody that is 100% in control of a person financially, emotionally, economically, and educationally. John Price and black America are not racist and can never be. The white man dominates everything so when the somebody comes at him with the same thing he dishes out, he calls them a racist. You bring a bone you must be able to carry one.

      • Marlon Cole

        So if Mr. Turner was not racist why did he not just call Mr. Price by his name? If he was not calling Mr. Price a racist name then who was he referring to — a Muslim or black nationalist, or black muslim? Which one is it. Nobody’s stupid. Mr. Turner knew what he was doing. He was just being sly about his remarks. Now everybody wants to make excuses for Mr. Turner. Them Tea Party folks have been trouble every since they came “back” on the scene. I don’t blame Mr. Price. Why come into a public court room disrespecting him? Would you do that to a judge? No way! The Judge is going to hold you in contempt of court.

      • David

        Marlon Cole has a well thought out and well stated position….for an idiot.

      • Reid

        I am very concerned that you have an incredible amount of comments directed to commissioner price, but you have no comments for mr. turner. It seems to me that mr. turner is the individual that created the racist environment (and refused to cease when asked), but you have no comments on jeff turner’s racist actions. Interesting that you address the defender, but not the violator. But your actions are typical of a racist.

      • Eruwaedhiel

        Free speech is free speech, whether it is agreed with or not. Crminalizing “hate speech” is wrong, and unconstitutional, no matter the reason. It leaves too wide a window of interpretation. We cannot take back America with such actions.

      • P. Stick

        Go look up Racist and find out what it really means. And he is not allowed to call him by name. He never called him black. You can’t fix stupid

      • Joe Watson

        When weak-minded people are confronted about issues of wrong-doing like this one, and they can’t respond with honest answers because they would expose their mis-deeds, they have to fall back on calling people names and hurling general insults. Mr. Turner obviously hit a nerve when he brought up the dismissal and Mr. Price successfully diverted the discussion (careened is probably a better word) away from the dismissal and straight into the gutter.

      • Willis

        To Marlon Cole, you stated that Wiley or any black person can never be considered a racist?!! That is the dumbest thing I ever heard, and as a black man sickens me. YOU keep us down. It works both ways, you don’t get a free pass in being racist to whites today just because your past generation was enslaved by light skinned men. You fool. You play that card out of weakness, heck even our president does, blaming the past for his continued troubles. Skating along without willing to take any responsibility. Us blacks are entitled to nothing. Just like all other shades we must work for it and be progressively respectful to others.

      • PhreakAx

        Uh, Marlon Cole, you’re not too sharp, are you? Did you not read the part of the article that says commission rules do not permit a member of the council to be referred to by name?

      • Bubba Gump

        Marlon – get some learning! What you describe as a racist is not a racist. A racist thinks that their race is superior to other races, or looks down on other races. Being a racist has nothing to do with controlling anyone financially, economically, emotionally, and through education. I haven’t figured out yet if you are ignorant or stupid. In fact why don’t you look up what those two words mean and get back to us with the answer.

        Also – since when did mullah become a derogatory term? News to the Muslim world then since they are apparently speaking derogatorily about Mullah Omar!

      • America's Child

        That is an excellent post!

      • Truth

        “So if Mr. Turner was not racist why did he not just call Mr. Price by his name?” – Marlon did the ‘white man’ also make you unable to READ THE ARTICLE? Since if you had actually read it you might have noticed the following: “Court rules state that public speakers may not address individual commissioners by name.”,

        Of course when the head clown Price himself doesn’t get it, I suppose you can be forgiven for not noticing.

        BTW why is Mullah offensive? Are you insulting Muslims, mullah is just a leader or teacher, seems to me you are the one making it an offensive term, you racist!

      • Roze

        It’s not going to “stop”. Whites will be a minority in ALL OF OUR COUNTRIES soon, hopefully we will wake up before it is too late. Look at France and you’ll see our future.

      • Mr Ed

        Willis – THANK YOU!!! That is the most reasonable post I’ve read on here.

        We (as a society) have made great strides in race relations, and it’s time we start highlighting and celebrating those accomplishments instead of dwelling on the past and searching for grivences.

        Thank you Willis.

      • JC Austin

        Willis, as a white man, it’s good to hear a black man take a stand against the nonsense of reverse racism.
        People like you are what bridge the gap and people that continue to play the race card are those that keep the gap open. Most whites regret slavery, but at the same time, ALL blacks alive today did not experience that slavery. It’s time to put that wicked past behind us but there are too many people–on both sides–that cannot get past the color of skin.

      • dude

        To the guy who wrote “black America is not racist,” what are you if you prejudge a group of people based on their skin tone?
        To Willis (as a previous poster replied), this guy is a great American. Slavery was a horrific fact of life in early America, and part of our history we will never live down. But each American, of any color, has to get up and go to work and carve out his own life.

      • Vince

        Blacks continually accuse whites of racism when there is absolutely no evidence of it. But often it is blacks who demonstrate the real racism and the media is often too timid to call them out on it.

      • John

        blacks are allowed to be racist, so he did nothing wrong.
        blacks are also allowed to jump to stupid conclusions, unlike whites. So again, nothing wrong.
        Is this a double standard? Why yes, it is. But one the MSM and the government backs wholeheartedly

      • cole

        Marlon, They are not allowed to address the chairmans by their name. I agree the guy was taking shots at price but you can’t say what price said wasn’t racist. if it was a white guy he would have been forced to resign. you no thats true. Alsomullah is slang for an educated muslim man.

      • Russ

        I don’t know where Marlon Cole gets his definition of ‘racist’ but it’s clearly meant to allow blacks to be racist and not be called on it. Based on this, I submit that Mr. Cole is a racist.

        Anyone who will excuse racism by his own people and not by others, is racist.

      • Ozlanthos

        Nice…but, criminalizing speech only makes more criminals, and is only a step away from thought crime. What I would vote for however is someone else in the next election!!!


      • Mosin Nagant

        Agreed. Price and Turner both are A-holes. People like them want to start a race war in this country. Both should have been expelled from the meeting. Don’t need more idiots and fools here. Among reasoned and intelligent, mind you I didn’t say educated, people race is irrelevent. We all have the same hopes, desires, and concerns. Life can be real hard for all of us. Personal attacks on each other, whether white , black, green or whatever are just plain stupid. Price needs to be removed from his job, and Turner (and any idiotic friends he has) need to be banned from further meetings. Lets move on.

      • blitzkriegbopper

        Mr. Cole-Because by the courts own laws, citizens are not allowed to directly criticize commissioners by name during meetings, a clear violation of the 1st amendment.

      • jake

        @ Marlon Cole

        Court rules state that public speakers may not address individual commissioners by name.

        That why he referred to Mr. Price as “Chief Mullah” b/c of the court rules.

      • Nick

        You forget; only whites can be racist.

      • Kate

        Sounds like you are talking about Jesus Christ when you speak of Dr. Martin Luther King. Only Jesus gives grace and He lived and died for us. I don’t recall Dr. King dying on purpose to save me. I agree with you about the kinds of speech people are using nowadays. No respect for anyone anymore.

      • spiffy

        I’m sorry, but no. Yes, Mr. Price’s conduct was appalling, and yes, he needs to be removed from any position of public authority. But if a white Commissioner had said, “you’re all black, go to hell,” we would all agree that he needed to be fired without calling to “criminalize ALL SUCH SPEECH.” Not only is freedom of speech a much, much more important principle than this, but attempting to ban bigots from identifying themselves hardly serves the purpose of getting them removed from public office.

    • Jahnke

      Because his area is a collection of ignorant morons who didn’t go to school … and live off of your tax money.

      • Bookworm

        Not all of us are. A lot of his “constituents” have been in Commissioner’s Court every week. Bruce Sherbert was one of those fair and unbiased officials who didn’t even vote in the primaries and you see how that turned out. Mr. Price doesn’t want fair and balanced. He wants to run Dallas County. Southern Dallas has lost thousands of jobs because of the cost of doing business with the likes of him, but just as they did for EBJ “his people” will keep voting for him because he keeps pulling off those scabs everytime they start to heal. I had no idea that “Mullah” was a racial term, did you?

      • Marlon Cole

        Moron? Who said you were intelligent. You pick on black people then want to insult them. There should have been some black folk there to get some straightening with Turner. Poor people have had enough. The Black nation has enough. We are tired of these dirty white politics that berate us and call us names. Because of racist white America we were not allowed to go to school. Second hand school books. Segregated schools and colleges. Now you call us morons because you want to take over our districts and homes. You want to use the FED to bring drugs into our communities. You want to frame up our men and put them jail. You want to use politics to take away our civil rights that we died for. Then you want to call us morons. So sounds like you’re the moron.

      • Someone Elses Fault

        Mr Cole
        I have seldom seen such a willingness to be the victim. Yes, embrace your victimhood, With many blacks like you crying to the rafters that it is Whitey who keeps you down. What ignorant and childish trash!
        You whine about second hand text books; what did the writing change in the book between the original student and you? I think not.
        I know many Black people, served and worked with them, and by an large I’ll tell you that they are Americans first, and black second. They don’t blame Whitey for anything, they go out, get an education, speak english, and go to work alongside Whitey. They earn the same money that I do. They aren’t victims.
        You on the otherhand blame Whitey for Slavery…I know it is a stretch, but who do you think sold Whitey the slaves? Yes, you just plain ignore that your own race were the suppliers of slaves for Whitey.
        Yep, being black stops you from being a Soldier, Sailor, Marine, Army. It stops you from being a Lawyer, Doctor, Architect, or President…oh wait, that is just the nonsense thoughts of your mind. If you aren’t lazy, and you value education and are willing to work for it, you are successful in America. Since it is such a trial being a black man in America, why not move to some other country. Americans of all colors won’t miss you or your kind at all. America doesn’t need victims, it needs citizens who contribute.

      • Matt

        Marlon Cole…hahahahahahahaha I needed that. I was getting a little too uptight about this whole event. Thank you for the comic relief. Not allowed to go to school…LOL. Feds bringing in drugs…ROFL! Segregated schools…is this the 50’s? LMAO! Last I checked the highest paid actor was black, the highest paid musician was black, the highest paid athlete was black, there are numerous successful black business men and women, hell, the POTUS is black! Black history month, MLK Jr. St.,Ave., etc. in EVERY city in the USA. Quit crying nobody wants to hear it anymore. Do something for yourself and stop playing the victim. You complain that whites have held you down and then go pick up your check. Guess who pays for that check you get every month? Working people(black,white,other) do. I know you’re gonna call me a racist so go ahead and call me what you will I don’t have to listen. The race card has been overplayed and people are starting to realize it. You’ll have to come up with another excuse to be worthless. Good luck with that.

    • Jhereg

      I have a better question; “Why is this man still a commissioner for the city of Dallas?” The Mayor of Dallas the head of the city council should demand that Price resign because of his actions. Anyone in the positiion of a city commissioner knows better than to play the racist card. And if Price’s districts voters don’t see what Price really is than they deserve what he will do to them over and over again. Also the meaning of ETYMOLOGY has mula or mullan as:
      Urdu mull, from Persian, from Arabic mawl, master, friend, from waliya, to become near, be in charge; see wly in Semitic roots. Normal for Price to mis- understand a word with his lack of knowledge concerning the english language.

      • Bear

        @Jhereg……… This has nothing to do with the City of Dallas. This is Dallas COUNTY government at it’s finest. So if you don’t understand how the players are playing on the field, please refrain from commenting. It sounds very ignorant. Not stupid, just ignorant of facts!!

      • P. Stick

        @Bear at least he is smart enough to know what Mula means. ” You’re all white Go to Hell” gotta love it. Stay classy Dalls County!

    • victoria

      being married to a 2nd generation italian let me say this… there is no such word as moolah… moolah is a slang for money as far as he can figure… there is an italian word for eggplant that is considered a racial slur but before he accuses “the whites” of anything maybe he should get an italian dictionary out before he tosses false accusations and then insults everyone else around him. Was he looking for an excuse to go off?

      • Mike

        Turner’s use of tribal mullah was a modern comparison to those in Afghanistan that have absolute control over their region, regardless of stated laws or government leaders.

        Of course Price wouldn’t know of this modern usage since he is still living in the distant past. He is the one a few years back that became outraged when someone used the phrase ‘black hole’ which he deemed racist and wanted it banned from use in front of the county commissioners. Carl Sagan had to be rolling his eyes while spinning in his grave.

    • Angela

      Because they don’t know any better! The people who live in Dallas County ( and I am one of them ) still think that the Democratic Party is the “Poor People’s Party” and that they can'[ do no wrong. I am so sick of him!

        “Democratic Party is the “Poor People’s Party”” – Thats the truth for sure, the ‘rats sure are the party of poor people – that is making people poor and keeping them that way!

Oh, and by the way, not everyone in the tea party is a racist. Heck, I know a few folks who are perhaps more loving to ALL people than so-called liberal thinkers.

    • Kade

      Price only proves his utter ignorance & that he is completely bereft of tolerance & class (yet again) with his behavior today. He lacks any ability to conduct himself professionally as well as appropriately – even when he ‘believed’ he was being addressed by what he called a racial slur.
      “Mullah” is not a racial slur. Even if the citizen mispronounced the word by saying “moo-luh”, it can be in NO way misconstrued with the racial slur Mr. Price had believed was being invoked. The word Mr. Price ignorantly assumed the citizen was using was an Italian-American slang word for “dark” or “black” people (even when referring to dark Italians/Italian-Americans) was “moolie”, short for moulinyan – or eggplant (roughly translated).
      MOOLIE is quite differently pronounced than is MULLAH.
      Educate yourself before you embarrass yourself as well as the county of Dallas, Mr. Price. The Court’s honor & integrity will be restored the day you no longer hold the District 3 seat.

    • John Smoth

      “Price” is one of the worst things in all of Dallas. But you have to respect him for standing up for what he believes in for so many years. By standing strong he has actually become a very critical part of the Dallas balancing act between those who have and those who have not. I wouldn’t live in Dallas unless it was the last place available…….

        You want to respect a hate monger. He shouted “You are all white, go to hell”.
        He enjoys it when white people just shut up and take his hate speach, and his black supremacy views.

      Wake up Dallas!!!!
      Racism is alive and well. Dallas tries to hide it, but it shows it’s weary face constantly. John Wiley Price has been an activist for the last 40 years and was groomed to combat racism in Dallas. Do not think that he will allow negative words in the court without a rebuttal. “Go to Hell ” was nice because I would have told all of them to “Kiss my Ass.” Dallas white community expects educated blacks to be quiet and just be happy to have job. I don’t think so.

      • wumhenry

        “Mulllah,” whether pronounced with a short or long u, is not a racial epitthet fer cryssakes! It means a Muslim who is deemed to be learned in matters of Islamic doctine. In American idiom, grandiose titles with archaic middle-eastern or oriental derivation or overtones — e.g., “Grand Poobah” and “Chief Panjandrum” — have long been used to mock minor officials with inflated self-regard and a dictatorial manner. Jeff Turner’s use of “Chief Mullah” in this context was obviously a riff on that derisive, but race-neutral idiom.

    • Ross Baxter

      Price is well known in Dallas for his racial activism and IS a notorious racist, having a history of being a race baiting loud mouth!

    • Sandy Lester

      Well, dear Marlon Cole. It was arabs and blacks that sold blacks to western Europeans (both black and white) for the slave trade. So get your history straight. It was Republicans who fought for the Civil Rights Act starting with Eisenhower. Democrats fought and delayed the implementation of the act until 1964 when it was supported by Republicans overwhelmingly. It is Republicans that believe blacks are capable, it is democrats that think you are to stupid to accomplish anything without their help. It is democrats that were the KKK, it is democrats that run abortions mills in black communities where 68% of black pregnancies end in abortion, it is democrats that refuse to allow school school so black students have a been chance.
      Sir, get your facts straight and think.

      • Nick

        Right on. The 1964 Civil Rights and 1965 Voting Rights Acts only passed because a larger percentage of Republicans voted FOR than Democrats. Democrats, led by that ex-KKK organizer Robt. Byrd, tried to filibuster the acts to death, supported by Al Gore Sr. (Algore’s father.)

    • J. Walsh

      The term Moolah was used by Abbott and Costello. Chief Moolah was a character in their film “Africa Screams”. Lou kept calling the Chief a “stinker”. Abbott told the Chief the term “stinker” meant a great guy. The Chief repeatedly thanked Lou as Lou repeatedly called him a stinker. “You’re the biggest stinker of them all!” Lou finally said. The Chief bowed and thanked him again. Also, moolah used to be a synonym for money. MORAL: Mr. Price is obviously a democrat and can’t be taken seriously until election time.

      • AK

        Not true. Nice try at diversion. Tell you what, you find me one single verifiable link anywhere on the web that states the Chief’s name was Moolah and I’ll buy what you are selling. You can’t and won’t, because his name was simply Chief. You are attempting to use facts all around and sound reasonable in a teaching tone, hopeful that no one catches the tiny but significant lie in the middle.

      • Richard Cardson

        The movie Africa Screams by Abbott and Costello is available on YouTube here:

        The parts where they meet the chief are from 55:00 on where they are captured and from 1:00:00 on where the “bad woman” is trying to sell Costello to the chief.

        At no point is any term close to Moolah or Mullah used for anyone in the film and there is no bit that talks about being a “stinker”. I have no idea why someone would make something like that up.

        Neither Moolah or Mullah were deragotory terms for Italian Americans in the past. According to the dictionary the definition of Mullah is:

        1. (in Islamic countries) a title of respect for a person who is learned in, teaches, or expounds the sacred law.
        2. (in Turkey) a provincial judge.

      The pendulum swing of history is something to behold.

      quit using slavery as a reason especially when it was your people who forced you into slavery to begin with. Do you even know your own history? So why not hate your own kind as intense;y as you hate white people. I think when your own people dangle a carrot in front of equally ignorant people there are more responsible than the person who bought the carrot. Slavery is bad and it is sad how they were treated, but the buck stops with your own ancestry, had they not sold you to whitey none of this would be an issue. So what would your excuse for hating white people then be?

    • teaisstronger


      Every discussion with a Black elected official is designed to end in accusations of racism. The black Blood Libelers have been told by the Kenyan Regime to always use fake accusations of race to end every meeting so as to portray all opposition as racism. Whites Guilt is everywhere and has been taught to whites by public schools for 40 years. Blacks can now get away with everything and our police are fearful of even arresting a black.

      I hope this is un-civil discours, it was meant to be un-civil.

      WHO IS THE RACIST HERE? If a white guy said, “you are black, go to hell!” we would lose whatever position we were in and be all over the media as a racist. I am so tired of these few racist african americans blaming white people for their problems. How did this THUG get elected anyway!

      • John Gault

        Actually, if a white guy said this, it would be Sara Palin and Rush Limbaugh’s fault. Furthermore, our Dear Leader would have a press conference decrying how the white guy had acted “stupidly”.

        But, since this was a black guy, we need to hug him and accept our collective responsibility and blame for creating an environment where his views are being diminished – he is, and always will be a victim. And we, being white will and always will be the bad guy.

      • john f

        when a thug like this man is confronted and has no out they ALWAYS use the race card. Chief Mullah was not being used racially it was being use figuratively. so this man turned his mind off and only saw white racist old men. then on the radio he referred to the men as tea baggers. i thought that conservatism was color blind. Oh but then he would lose the entitlements that he guarantees his constituents and thus lose his job. So who is the racist??

Why he (Price) did not do the same, isn’t that what Commissioners Court is all about ? Being able to speak your opinion and talk about what you need to talk about with out all the shouting and name calling ?? How does Price know that the Turner was calling him the name ?? It looks like to me Price likes to make a scene and make Dallas look bad on the tv and news and you know what that makes Fort Worth look better !!!! Tarrant County citizen and Proud of it !!!!

      I am a black man and extremely proud of it, so proud in fact of the history of slavery, the black tribes in Africa dressed in their birthday suits, and a lot of other black stuff. I am proud of this black skin color because I have a looked into the past and gazed into the future and have seen indeed that time and chance happen to all. So many have ruled the earth in their time but where are they today, the Egyptians, the Assyrians, the Babylonians, the Persians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Bristish again I ask, WHERE ARE THEY TODAY?. A time will also come when it will be asked, Where is America today?, a time will also come when it will be asked, Where is the white man today and in those days the white man will reap in folds the scorn he has sown.

        Dear Proud Black Man,

        Chinese, Mexicans, and Arabs will rule the USA of the future, not blacks. Sorry to burst your bubble. Obama is selling our futures to them as we converse in the written word.

      • WCM

        Yes, America is in decline because we have to spend out tax dollars handing out welfare and unemployment to a bunch of low lifes who refuse to work, do drugs, have lots of illigitimate kids, and blame ‘whitey’ for all of their failings. Where is the white man? He is moving out to the suburbs and leaving people like you to wallow in the slums you have created for yourselves. Maybe you should take Bill Cosby’s advice: Take care of your children black men, instead of running out on your kids. Take care of your communities. Most of all, stop blaming other peope for your failures. It has nothing to do with the ‘scorn’ of white men, and as long as that is your focus, you will remain an underclass of American society no matter how many blacks are in the NBA, NFL, or the White House.

      • nighowl

        LBJ started it all with the Great Society programs that took over as head of the household causing government welfare to become the daddy and expand the slums to this day. Some society!. Just cry racism or the opression by whites and the goverment will pander to you. No personal responsibility…just whiners.

      • LookAtMeIThinkForMyself

        (Proud Black Man) Troll successful lol

        You sir, like the rest of the culture that those of your race in America have formed mostly out of hate, need to realize that the white man will just move and leave the destructive people with the ghetto. Where will America be in 20 years if it keeps up like it is? A Huge Afro-Latin trashy ghetto no better than any other 3rd world country with the ruins of what was once a mighty and successful nation. This will never EVER have to do with your skin color sir, but it will have everything to do with your attitudes. The emphasis your cultures place on being “Cool” and “Hard Gangstas” versus spending all of that energy on learning to treat everyone around you kindly and working hard to learn as much as you can with a supportive family.

        Now I can think of some good things in Latin cultures but honestly the street blend with African American culture is as bad as the African American culture itself. Just tell me one place in this world that being a ghetto gangsta ever worked to make a great country? Idiots.

        Well I will be with my Asian brothers up in Vancouver I think when America is finally shat upon for the last time. Perhaps even Europe or if I am really lucky I can go live with perhaps the most intelligent of them all, the Japanese. The people who wisely DO stereotype and discriminate first until you have proven yourself as an individual. It is a lesson of the few ruining it for the many, I know there are a lot of Amazing people of all races in this world but guess what? It is people like John Wiley Price and so many other trashy people giving you a terrible name. We need to defy any destructive cultures before it is too late.

      • Al Temail

        Lookatme….. you said, “or if I am really lucky I can go live with perhaps the most intelligent of them all, the Japanese”

        Ever been to Tokyo? If so, you probably noticed (as a black man OR as a white man for that matter) that there were very few people who looked like you.
        Japan is a very insular country and they really aren’t that big on you “foreigners”. Black, white, brown, there are just very, very few of us in Japan.
        Not that they’re less intelligent because of that, I’m just pointing out what I’ve noticed.

      • Not so proud

        History shows that modern man as we think of ourselves started in Africa. In fact it may be as long ago as a million years ago. Now why in all that time did no organized civilization come from Africa? It was and still is today a country full of tribes that rape, murder, spread disease, and can’t figure out how how to feed themselves. The Chinese have contributed far more to the world than Africa has.


        There were many organized civilizations in Africa many years ago which is why I wish America would give students a choice of the type of education they study. Right now we are only hearing “his-story”. Not what really happened.

      • RD

        The black nman rounded up blacks in Africa for sale all over the world. Where woulld present day blacks be if they had not been liberated from the poverty of their homelands?

      • Matt

        You took the words right outta my mouth. I wonder what white people’s civil rights will look like when we are the minority. If you look to these idiots like Obama and Price, I bet we won’t have any. MLK’s vision has been hijacked, instead of equal rights, people like this Price and Marlon Cole, want better rights than whites. Hey, that could be Price’s next campaign slogan.

    • David

      I agree, this guy really needs to step down. Every time I see him on the news all he can do is drop the “Race Card” White Man this and that. I think it shows that finally everyone has had enough of this guy. I’m sure with all this going on we will see Jessy Jackson in Dallas along with Al Sharpton saying this and that. It is really sad. I think everyone made more progress back in the 80’s Black, White, Hispanics and all. Now in 2011 we have a Black President and it seems we stepped back 60 years.
      Just my 2 cents worth.

    • Move-ON

      (Proud Black Man)

      Wow!!! That isn’t a racist comment at all. All white people are not the ones who do all evil. Nor are all black people or hispanics or any other race. We all do evil. I agree with you on looking at history. If you look at any continent and the history of the eoples on that continent there has been many evil things done to everyone (of which whites have been hurt as well). All races need to agree that this has happened adn agree to move on from the past adn make a better future where peace adn acceptance and love of one another is the norm. Then I think we can agree that no race is less important or less noble than any other. God made us all. (we should all be tired of being blamed for what our ancestors have done. They made their choices as should we and hopefully ours will be better than theirs)Every person is responsible for themselves and not anyone else)

    • Dantrel MadethisFamilypageforyall Bonae

      I grew up in the DFW area .John Wiley Price has been a champion of justice and the voice of a people whom had no voice . Its undeniable that If a man defamed your name in public that u as a citizen would respond as such. John Wiley Price is a man of inpecable values and integrity. The only outrage that “these people” are experiencing is that a black man did not stay in his ” so called ” place. Wake up Dallas . Its 2011. The president is Black. We have proven that we are not your subordinates.

    • BoBo from Texas

      ‘Why are Dallas County people in his district still voting for him?”

      Because a majority of the voters in his district are apparently as racist, ignorant and hate-filled as Mr. Price.

    • Mike Shaner

      It is admirable to stand up for the rights of those who are discriminated against. It is noble to fight for the right to speak and act freely. It is hypocritical to assume people should be able to speak freely as long as you agree with them.

    • Truthhurts

      @proud black man- you are probably correct in your assertion- america will lose stature at some point, as all great powers do.As far as the “scorn” whites have sown… There will always be winners and losers- and the losers will always cry “unfair” and “you cheated”, instead of admitting defeat and improving because of it. There are many groups that play on this victim mentality, the only hope is that you can break free of it.

    • IP727

      because his district is heavily black, and they like it when he goes after whitey.

    • IP727

      because they like him are racist.

    • ushodan

      These arguments are all a waste of time. Mr. Price said what he said as he was backed into a corner, faced with a subject he did not like. Problem is that unlike the rest of us working stiffs, he is voted into office and his views and actions (racist or not) can determine his political future. I am sure in the DEEP south you will find his counterparts. As for the Tea Baggers, they have their counterparts also, remember those NUTTY Acorns and their problems with Voters fraud, or those zany Black Panthers and the harassment at the voting stations. Those polls should have been guarded by the National Guard to ensure that a special interest group would not threaten honest citizens from performing the most sacred of civic duties. This whole thing is can be seen as Ying and Yang, the view comes from what side you are on.
      Mr Cole, you arguments about WHITEY holding others down is just an excuse for the short comings of those who do not WISH to better themselves. This WELFARE mentality is accepted from all walks of life form the Ghetto to the Trailer Park. The poor only stay poor for generations because they are accepting of their position and unwilling to improve it. I should know I grew up in the poorest of neighborhoods, spent 20+ years in the military and finished two degrees and I am currently working on my third. Most every healthy child in this great country has the same opportunities I was afforded by working hard in school, sacrificing my time (deployments from my family), my personal activities (no drugs allowed in the military, not that I would take them) and accepting the fact that you have to risk your life to defend the rights those who hate you and think of you as a fool for doing so. In short, my example is the norm when it comes to working hard for what you want and to rise out of the poverty that I was raised in. Next time we hear of something this asinine coming from a public official, pray for them and let you know how you feel at the voting booth.

      Marlon Cole – Almost every thing you complain about is written in the past tense…these events happened generations ago. Yes, there were awful things that were done to blacks. We can all agree on that. I have been a teacher for over 10 years and I promise you, black people along with other races and ethnicities are in our schools. Not only that, they get the SAME education as the white kids. As for your ‘book’ comment…um …books get reused for several years…finances don’t allow for brand new books every year. The black kids aren’t the only ones getting used books.

      How can you continue to blame others for you being lazy? Who has stopped you from doing anything or becoming anything? In fact, there are soo many scholarships for minority students. But you must exert minimal effort in asking about them and applying for them. The opportunities are there, but effort is required.

      People who continue to use “slavery” and “race” for the source of their woes have their ancestors rolling over in their graves…they deserve better from you!

    • Dunnyveg

      I think the answer to why Price’s constituents continue voting him back into office if very obvious: They think he’s doing a good job. After all, this isn’t the first time Price has made a spectacle of himself.

      A better question to ask is why the rest of us tolerate this clown’s antics.

I do, however, have to point-out that, while this incident did take place in what is called the Dallas County Commissioners Court, this is not a trial court and John Wiley Price was not on trial the day this incident took place. He is, in fact, a Dallas County Commissioner representing Dallas County District 3. I can’t help but wonder if S Major is a voter in Dallas County District 3. That would help explain how John Wiley Price remains in office. MeS™

      Mr. price hasn’t changed over the years. He is still riding that poor poor pitiful me program in the dirt. Reverse psychology may work on a 3 year old but typically falls short with mature adults. Its truly sad to witness the immaturity of elected officials in Dallas County. You’d think they had never heard of Roberts Rules of Order. Its truly sad this is the best Dallas has to offer their voters.

    • BamBam

      In Price’s statement, he used the word niggar. This shows that the guy is clearly a racist….oh wait, it’s not racist when a black says it. When all else fails and you can’t intellectually debate, use the old N word trump card.

    • Conservative Texan

      How does this racist still have a job? Like people have mentioned before, if the role was reversed and it was a white man that told a group of black CITIZENS to “go to hell” the Black Panthers would be marching down Main St., It would be on CNN, I’m sure Obama would call for the resignation of the Commissioner, and I can’t begin to fathom what else would happen.

      I heard on the radio this morning a debate about JWP’s actions and a defender of him said “well he’s by far been the most effective commissioner Dallas has ever had”. So is that a reason not to fire him? Let me ask you this. If a town had a pit bull for a town mascot and that dog went around brutally attacking citizens of the town, would you not either put the dog down or find a replacement mascot? Of course you would! I am outraged at how this public official still has a job AND STILL HASN’T EVEN APOLOGIZED FOR HIS ACTIONS!

      I’m glad I only work in Dallas and don’t have to reside here. Because I’d truley be embarrased if I had to call this openly racist man my county commissioner.

      I SAY WE START A PETITION TO FIRE JOHN WILEY PRICE!!! (But I’m sure this will just be chalked up to another one of his outbursts and Spike Lee will go on with making a movie about this idiot.)

    • thomas

      That is a very good question Sheesh. At a time when Price could have RISEN ABOVE the adversity & established himself as a TRUE-Unbiased Leader of all Walks of Life, did instead, lower himself to reveal his true identity…a hypocrital racial bigot…and… I can only conclude that anyone who backs him, will be the same.

    • RD Sanders

      Isn’t it racist to tell the white people to go to hell? If a white had told the black people to go to hell Sharpton and Jackson would have been all over Dallas. Why was the key to the city given to Vick when his team beat Dallas?
      Perhaps Price can dish it out but can’t take it.

      Which this fool posses none of, your guess is as good as mine! I guess that for some, leadership and strength means beating people down physically and verbally. He is a complete embarrassment to the city of Dallas, to himself, and to the people he represents. His professionalism is non existent and he and a few others in Dallas are the most racist individuals I have ever seen in my life. I would hate the thought of going to work every day and dealing with someone of this level. How any work gets done in the city of Dallas is beyond me. You can not behave in this manor and scare people into a corner so that you get your way. This is street mentality and JP has no diplomacy skills or self control.

      Price is not on the city council, but serves as a county commisioner.If others made any attempt to remove him from office they would be harassed and then would never receive another black vote. You have to understand that Price’s constituents stand solidly behind him.

        Tom is the only one who understands Texas polictics. The good old boys of yesterday (pre 1978) stayed in office by overt or subtle racism while other practiced racism their own way.

  • Cynthia Saxiones-Garza

    John Wiley Price appears to be a very angry, frustrated person who happens to be overly accusative towards the white population of Dallas of being racist. He does not present himself as professional or educated, but rather an inflammatory dinosaur of last century. I have one question for John Wiley Price, when it came time for him to serve his country, during the Vietnam conflict, did he dodge the draft like so many of his era did, or was he man enough to serve his country?

    • Marcel Leduc

You, however, appear to be one of those who would have run to the North or South to get out of serving. That makes you one of the ones we would call a COWARD.

      • Michael Gross

        I agree with you about John Wiley Price being a racist but as far as Vietnam goes, you’re one of the cowards who didn’t go for one reason or another. Go to Hell.

      • ric

        is it wrong too question the policies of a corrupt govt or just blindly go do things when they tell u. glad u made it back alive

      • Dwight

        Richard and Michael are right!
        Marcel the coward doesn’t deserve to live in this country. No one liked that war, but someone had to go when ordered. Anyone who holds that against the ones who went and the many that didn’t return should all be kicked out of the country. They are not true Americans just because they were born here, they’re only true Americans if they’re willing to die for the Red, White and Blue.
        I feel bad for Marcel’s kids having a yellow dog coward for a parent!

      • Dwight

        Ric, no one said you can’t question the corrupt government (hopefully you’re doing that with this current administration right now) but it’s obvious you didn’t serve either. When you’re in you don’t get the option of deciding when and where you go. And those that were drafted went because they were honorable men not because they thought of it being right or wrong. Many went that didn’t agree but they understood what a patriot is! My dad served, I served, and my son is a disabled medically discharged Iraq war vet. And he hasn’t turned 30 yet! It wasn’t fun, be we had to watch out for the country because the cowards like Marcel would already have been shot by the communist he would have let in. They don’t like cowards either. They just handle them more efficiently.

      • CK

        Thank you Richard and Dwight for your service to our country.

      • Griff

        I didn’t go to VietNam…
        Of course, I was 4 when the conflict ended, but is that a ggod enough excuse?

        John Wylie Price is, and has been a smudge on the face of Dallas County (is that racist because he has dark skin?…he would say it is).
        Any opportunity to play the race card, he does. And all he REALLY accomplishes is showing how ignorant he is, as a person.

      • Cynthia Saxiones-Garza

        Marcel, my father was in this country for 2 years when he was drafted for WWII, he served with pride and honor, even though his english wasn’t the best. He believed in the US Constitution and risked his life to protect it. My eldest brother went to Vietnam, and will soon be in a wheelchair from the wounds he recieved back then. He was also proud to serve his country and knew it was his duty. My older brother went to Vietnam, he was against it, but it was his duty and he was luckier his ounds were not so bad.
        John Wiley Price takes full advantage of the rights gauranteed by the Constitution, he abuses these rights regularly. All I want to know is was he willing to lay his life down to protect these rights when his time came. Or was he a coward!

    • Bruce Draken


  • Tom

    Let’s be honest. Price is a bully and has always been. His constituents vote for him because he is black and will speak and vote for black citizens ahead of other races. In some ways, or is some situations, this might be commendable behavior, but in general it is not and he simply makes himself look like the fool that he is! That is shameful, in that he has the ability to be an articulate and influential speaker for his people. If he could only be that for all of the citizens, regardless of race he could be a great man, but he has never shown that he has any interest in people who are not black.

  • missr

    I have felt for a long time that this man is a racist and if he was white and telling black people to go to hell, do you think he’d still be in office? He needs to be removed. He is so angry and hateful to white’s it is like a mental disorder.

    • D. Smith

      This man pulls the race card like a gun but IF one tenth of what he has done/said was performed by the “white” people he referred to, there would have been an uproar and he would have been hounded out of his position long ago; talk about a one-way-street.

      White, black, brown, green or pink, the whole thing is classless and pathetic.

    • East Dallas

      i agree, he needs to be removed…out out out.

  • Kathy Carter

    Why isn’t Price called on racism?? If A white council member had said “You are all black. Go to hell”, they would have been ejected so fast. Why is reverse racism tolerated?. Blacks get away with it way to often.

    • Kim C.

      Actually it’s not “reverse racism”…racism runs in all directions and saying “reverse racism” would mean “racism” only runs in one direction.

      But I do agree with you!

      • Greg S

        Thank you Kim C. Kathy…it’s not being tolerated. It just happened earlier today so give time time for Price to get the reprehand that he needs. Someone definitely needs to check him because he was WAAAYYY out of line. No double standards here. They’ll get ’em so call off the witch hunt dogs. Let me repeat…HE WAS WRONG! Settle down. Racism is racism, no such thing as ‘reverse’ racism.

    • tunamelt

      Yes, all very true statements!! JWP is a racist!!! We have all SEEN and HEARD his actions so many times. It is so sad that he holds a county seat and has no respect for anyone’s race… let alone for himself. How in the hell does he get away with this? Inquiring minds want to know?

      • carlo

        Mr. Price is trying to deny white people their rights. The FBI should be called in and investigate Mr. Price. Will Mr. Holder do so. No, you see, he hates white people. Crimes against white people by the likes of Mr. Price are not hate crimes as black people have crafted the laws to protect them and punish those people they hate, white people.

    • A J

      It is the same reason as why there is an “Association of Black McDonald’s Managers”, (not sure if it still exists), but if there was an “Association of White, Chinese, Japanese, Hispanic, whatever, McDonald’s Manages”, people like JWP would call it racist. JWP is and always has been one of the most racist people in Texas, he continues to show his ass and ignorance on a daily basis and get a way with it. The quote from his response above makes me laugh, “In the absence of a fair and balanced media outlet in Dallas, I wanted to submit a statement that offers my perspective of an “encounter” that took place at Dallas County today. Unfortunately, my comments were broadcasted without the benefit and the full context which they were made.” No JWP I don’t think there is an absence of a fair and balanced media outlet in Dallas, unless the media is unwilling to spin the “encounter” the way JWP wants it to read, in other words lie so you don’t look bad. Step down and save face before you are thrown out. You have polluted Dallas with your ignorance and racism long enough.

  • Ronnie

    There is no one more prejudice and racist than Price. Telling people to “Go to Hell” because they are white? Come on, wake up people.

    • Greg S

      The premise of him telling them to go to hell wasn’t because they were white, it was because they called him out on the issue of him throwing rocks and hiding his hands regarding that sudden departure of Elections Administrator Bruce Sherbet. JWP didn’t like it, coupled with the fact that one citizen kept calling him ‘chief moolah’. Actually his true colors came out because they are white. He calls it being passionate about what he does, but I beg to differ. You HAVE know how to separate business from personal feelings, and clearly JWP is failing to do so.

      • Carl

        Greg, thank you for a rational response and not a follow the pack thinking like Ronnie and others. I bet if we checked in Ronnie’s little life there will be things that he should not have said.

      • eljefe

        You win hands down for dumbest post of the day – congrats!

      • carlo

        Greg, it was not Chief Moolah, it was Chief Mullah, a Muslim term of respect. Greg, do you hate white people like Mr. Price? If Mr. Price was not a racist, then why the reference to “you are ll white people”?

  • VFW American

    This guy thinks he is beyound reproach from anyone. He has been and always will be a “RACIST” . You can see it as he talks at other races in a defensive posture. The peolpe that vote for hime are idiots that keep voting for the same peolpe over and over again and you see where we are at in Dallas County??

    • caro

      Black people who hate white people like Mr. Price. They are not idiots. They know what they want. They want a racist who hates white people. Mr. Price fills that bill. He is also a gery aggressive advocate for his community. He practices racism in favor of the people in his district.

  • Hootex

    John Wiley represents “his people.” That’s why he’s in office. they want their man there, and John Wiley is the man. What else can be said. He is what he is.

  • Victoria Lynn Strickland

    Once again, Price has shown his true colors and what he really thinks of people. He needs to go, his time is over.

  • Jay Moor

    Im a proud Africn American and I think Price is to emotional to hold his position. “WHITE”??? WHat does that have to do with anything. Price learn from Obama… ALWAYS STAY CALM. but at this point, Id rather you just step down.

  • JimS

    It’s mullah.

  • Mike

    I’m black and this was wrong for Commissioner price to act in this manner.. He has a past but he owes those people that he offended an apology.Dont wont to say white people because he offended more than white people. We all have to answer to someone both now and later. Apologize John. It’s the right thing to do. And then repent or change your attitudes. It will take you much further. I do support commissioner Price in something however this isn’t one of them.

    • Chuck Harley

      I agree, Mike. This is not a racial issue like some people want to make of it. It is another one of those issues where someone didn’t agree to Price’s actions and he has again taken offense because someone questioned him, of all people. He acts more and more like a spoiled child in a powerful position and is too used to having things his way. He does not and never has been able to deal with any type of rejection of his ideas or opinions. This is nothing new as far as his attitude toward others. He is just expressing his true feelings more and more. He has been there too long and is burning out.

  • Big Poppa

    Why isn’t the “Rev.” Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson there to defend the white people? Oh that’s right, because white’s have lost the right to use words of color while blacks, Hispanics, and any other ethnicity can use them all day and not get a slap on the wrist. Reverse racism at its’ finest folks! Price is a very angry, hateful person and I feel sorry for anyone associated with him. While there are countless people of ALL cultures providing great services and attributions, he is one that is trash and continues to only contribute hate.

  • SaraJ

    PRICE IS A RACIST and Always has been.

  • Kena D

    Price telling people to GO TO Hell has nothing to do with racism. There are so many white republicans who have disrespected the president and have not been ejected from their roles in the senate. So what are you people talking about. Get an education, you sound like fools. Yes John Wiley Price is an idiot for saying those things but what does race have to do with the work “Go To Hell”….Nothing people.

    • K.H.

      “all of you are white – Go to Hell” – nope doesn’t sound racist to me – you too are an idiot and a slave to JWP and that’s the problem with Dallas – nobody is telling the Prez to “go to hell”.

      • john f

        but would there be so much outrage if he just said go to hell. i dont think so

    • billyboy

      He yell all you are white…go to hell…is that not rascist?

    • Jim

      I agree that the words “Go to Hell” by themselves are not racist, however when he prefaced the comment calling attention to the color of the people he was speaking to, he just crossed the line into the racist world he most likely lives and thinks in daily. We are not talking about the POTUS here, we are talking about someone who is supposed to represent the Dallas community. Yous seemed to miss the part where the people were called out because of their color therefore, sour comments make you sound as if you harbor some of the same issues as the councilman.

    • jd

      My how easily we can omit things. Did you bother to read that JWPOS first said “you are white”?

      A typical apologist. What better way to defend the actions of one than to throw a different race card in the other direction. I might be way off here, but I have my doubts that it was the treatment of our President by white republicans that caused JWP to run his racist mouth. He did it because he can get away with it, AND because that’s how he really feels. You should consider going back for a few brush up courses, because eventually you’re going to have to use your noggin because people will be so tired of the race card “cry wolf” that’s it’s not going to have a whole lot meaning.

      Good luck, and keep sticking it to the man.

      • ertdfg

        “Kena D – Do you all know what the word Moolah stands for. … Look it up, idiots.”

        Ok, looking it up. Slang for money, generic… no Italian reference, no racial epithet reference… nothing. Dozens of pages into google, refining search… nothing at all.

        Maybe you can help this “idiot”, find me 5 uses of “Moolah” or “Chief Moolah” as a racial epithet with a web-page last changed before this year (as it’s a long-time racial epithet… or so you claim, this will be easy, right?).

        I’ll warn you now I was 20 pages into google’s search and found nothing; so you’re going to want to have a lot of time to look for this… maybe have someone hack some together with fake timestamps… as there is nothing out there justifying your claim.

        Oh, and telling someone to “look it up” when you’re demonstrably wrong… that’s the move of an idiot.

      • Kena D

        Do you all know what the word Moolah stands for. Its a word that is used by italians to demean and degrade people. By saying the word to the commissioner….is a racist word. Why do you think that he said you all are white go to hell. I am not saying its right. But calling him Moolah isn’t right either. Race would not have been an issue here if he was not called Moolah. Look it up, idiots.

  • Rabid

    Kathy it is not reverse racism. It is just RACISM, pure and simple. This man has a blind hatred for whites, which is the true definition of racism. He should be removed from office and banished from City Hall.

  • mayo

    You can not call anyone a chief moolah, that’s an insults. he never started that. are white people who started that.

    • JoJo

      learn grammar dummy

    • D.BURNS


  • billyboy

    Just love his suit what joke. He has the never to call white people racist….what a idiot.

  • Timothy McCaskey

    I guess that’s the Price you pay for being a bigot, ha ha!

  • Rabid

    Kena, read what he said again. If he had just said go to hell that in itself would not be racist. But when he said “All of you are white, go to hell.” he made it racist.

    • RJ

      If the city of Dallas continues to allow this person to serve on its council, they deserve exactly what they have gotten and will continue to get.

  • Dan G.

    Wrong for Price to respond as he did, but just a wrong for someone to call an elected official the “chief moolah”. Who are the other moolah’s that he’s chief over. That is just as offensive as Price’s ridiculous response. An obvious attempt to inflame, just too bad that Price walked right into the trap.

  • mayo

    I give you only 2 deacades, and you will see a pure change, where white will no even be minorities, and will have no choice rather than to submit and respect a man of color and spanish. We are unto this to succed. We are democrats, it is our goals.

    • Kristy T.

      Reckon you will still be walking the streets of Dallas in 20 Mayo? Furthermore, you sir are making the situation even worse by your obvious racism. You are obviously uneducated as you spew hate and contempt. If you do not like the way things are here in America/Texas go back to Mexico. See what you get there… You sure won’t get any food stamps and free health care like you are here.

      • will

        so presumptive…. i’m sure kristy will refuse to use her medicaid and will donate her Social Security checks to a worthy cause because she “doesn’t accept government handouts”.

      • For Freedom

        Will – If she pays her taxes and ss as an American citizen or course Kristy will accept what the government will give her if she needs it. However, we are not so sure that Mayo is a citizen and has paid in her taxes. Your an idiot also.

    • american

      mayo….your spelling needs work dude, grammar sucks as well. did u finish jr high or 3rd grade
