Mahlon Mitchell and the “N” Word


Democrat Mahlon Mitchell denies he nearly used a racial slur while joking with brewery owners on a tour as part of his run for governor.

Mitchell, who is black and leads the statewide firefighters union, made the comment while visiting Hop & Barrel Brewing Co. in Hudson earlier this month. The videotaped visit appeared on Mitchell’s Facebook page and was noticed by Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel columnist Daniel Bice.

“I thought I was saying head man in charge,” Mitchell said Wednesday during a sit-down interview with WISN 12 NEWS. ‘I do not use the word.”

In the July 6 exchange, Mitchell was chatting with owners Justin Terbeest and Brian Priefer when he asked if they had a competitor. Mitchell said, “You’re the cumma sum laude, I’d say. You’re the head …” and then stopped himself just as it appears he began to use the N-word.

He then laughed and wrapped up the video.

I don’t believe his denial for a second. Go watch the video. The exchange comes with about 9 seconds left in the video. It is perfectly clear what he was saying/not saying and the joke he was making. What is more telling is that he apparently thought that the joke was so innocuous that he published the video himself. This is part of a trend of Mitchell using crude and offensive humor in public settings. I do know that if Scott Walker, or any Republican for that matter, had even approached the language that Mitchell used, he would have been forced to resign by now.

    Just what we need.  A racist candidate for Gov.

  2. Kevin Scheunemann

    All Democrats are racist.

    Not one of the will speak against the sicko liberal racism and concept of “white privilege”.

  3. Kevin Scheunemann

    …and if they do speak against racism of the liberal lexicon extolling “white privilege” as a problem, they disqualify themselves as a Democrat these days.

    “All Democrats are racist.”

    Really?  Do you personally know every Democrat?  If not you are lying.

  5. Kevin Scheunemann

    Let’s test this.

    Nord, do you denounce the racist liberal concept of “white privilege”?

    Kevin, what are the last three books you’ve read?  When is the last time you’ve learned something, and when’s the last time you’ve ever changed your opinion?

    Do you think racism exists?  Do you think non-white people have ever had less freedom and fewer opportunities when it comes to travel, making purchases, accumulating wealth, finding employment, getting an education?

    Do you think white folks ever didn’t face the same challenges, only because of the color of their skin, and the presumption of their worth and innocence?

  7. Le Roi du Nord


    Poor try at deflection. “White privilege” knows no political affiliation.  Just look at POTUS, Sessions, et al.  To make the claim that white privilege is a “racist liberal concept” is foolish and without any substantiating evidence, just as your “all Democrats are racist” nonsense.  I truly thought you were a much deeper thinker, but am pretty much convinced (by your own words) that you are really a pretty shallow individual.

  8. Kevin Scheunemann


    So you support the racism of liberals through concept of “white privilege”?

    That would make you liberal as charged.

  9. Le Roi du Nord


    No, I never said that, you are making up things that you want others to say.  That line between reality and fantasy must be pretty  blurry for you.  Is reading and comprehension difficult for you?

  10. Kevin Scheunemann


    Are you against the liberal racist concept of “white privilege”?

    Your comment seems to validate the liberal racist concept.

    I’m giving you a chance to back away from the liberal racism because I am a nice guy.
