Don Harris Has Finally Hit The ‘I Don’t Give A Shit Anymore’ Age
Don – The leader of the NAACP in Phoenix hopes his community takes a stand against racism, but is now under fire himself after he had no problem making a sexist comment about a reporter.
Don Harris, president of the civil rights organization’s Maricopa County chapter, was speaking about reaction to six girls spelling the N-word on their shirts at a local high school when he said “nice t–s” to a female reporter.
When a bunch of white people mess up and do something racist, it’s normal for the local NAACP chapter leader to talk to the media about how ignorant and dumb white people are. And then there’s Don Harris. Don skipped that part and decided to go as rogue as one can go. Not only did he tell the female reporter she had ‘nice tits’, as quoted above, but he also offered one of the most bizarre apologies in the history of the world.
Harris’s outburst was followed by a bizarre mea culpa from the former lawyer, who told the Times, “I apologize if anyone was offended. I could have said nothing . . . I’m really f—ing sorry.”
“I’m going to slash my wrists,” the 77-year-old, who is white and in his second year as NAACP leader, said in response to a question about fighting sexism.
“Better yet, I’m going to throw myself out of a f—ing window, except I’m on the first floor . . . I’m one of the best goddamned people in the state.”
First question – why is a white guy the leader of any NAACP organization? Seems counter productive. Two – why is a SEVENTY SEVEN year old white guy the leader of anything? There is no demographic more unstable than old white people. They just don’t care about anything. They’ve seen a lot of shit, and are so stuck in their ways it’s infuriating. I love my grandmother, but I would not put her in charge of bringing napkins to a birthday party, never mind leading the NAACP. Just look at Don Harris’s apology if you don’t believe me. He threatens suicide by saying he’s going to jump out a window, takes it back because he realizes he’s on the first floor, then says he’s one of the best goddamn people in the state. All in a matter of a sentence. You know who says stuff like that? Crazy people. Whoever put Don Harris in a position of power needs to seriously reexamine their strategic thinking skills, and maybe get him out of the spotlight forever.
