That was pretty much proved in the revelation of an email forwarded by a federal judge. The email basically says President Obama’s mother had sex with a dog and he’s the result. But of course the judge in question denied circulating the note because it was racist, but because it was “anti-Obama,” reports Politico.
The email, first obtained by the Great Falls Tribune, was forwarded by Chief U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull (pictured) last week from his court email account to seven recipients — including his own personal email address — under the subject line, “A MOM’S MEMORY.”
“Normally I don’t send or forward a lot of these, but even by my standards, it was a bit touching. I want all of my friends to feel what I felt when I read this. Hope it touches your heart like it did mine,” Cebull’s email begins.
The text continues on to this joke: “A little boy said to his mother; ‘Mommy, how come I’m black and you’re white?’ His mother replied, ‘Don’t even go there Barack! From what I can remember about that party, you’re lucky you don’t bark!’”
In an interview with the Tribune, Cebull acknowledged that the email was racist but maintained that he doesn’t consider himself a racist and that the note was meant to remain private.
Cebull was appointed by President George W. Bush in 2001 and has been the chief judge since 2008.
