Vernon Jones loses case and maybe more

Vernon Jones loses DeKalb discrimination suit  | ajc.com.

Damn Vernon. You discriminatin’ against white people. That’s what a jury said. Vernon, and his co-defendants were found liable for creating a “racially hostile work environment”. let me say this, anytime you have more than one black man in a work environment, it is considered hostile. Two of the plaintiffs were not awarded any damages. This has to be terrible news for Jones. He is running for Congress in a district that has a sizable white population. If they see him as hostile towards whites, this could be the end of his run for Congress. Hell it could be the end of his run for any office outside of the ‘hood. I personally want to see Vernon run a strong campaign, and I hope he can deflect criticism about this verdict and keep the focus on why he should be the Congressman from the 4th. After all, if there is no Vernon this race will be really boring.

      I have been following his campaign, but it is moving slow. I hope he makes some more noise this summer as we head into the primary

      I agree, and I hope that it does not become a central focus for his opponents. Thanks for checking us out
