Go ahead and top this one. I dare you.
“I am the victim because I made a mistake”
…says a government investigator in Tennessee who met with a man suing the state after first responders would not perform CPR because his mother was black. William Sewell opened the meeding by asking if the man had been to prison and he closed it with a story about a black man who was lynched in 1896 by folks in town, going on for a while about a ‘skin trophy’ from the hanged man’s back that Sewell’s grandfather had passed on to him.
Sewell, now fired, says that he was trying to sympathize. It boggles the mind how these well-meaning people keep getting misunderstood.
