Something tells me that Thomas Lopez-Pierre, a candidate for the New York City Council, isn't going to win any votes with a racist, sexist, and homophobic email he sent to one of his opponent's supporters.
Lopez-Pierre, an African-American, took umbrage that real estate developer Brian Benjamin decided to back Mark Levine for the council seat. Levine is white and Jewish. In an incredibly boneheaded move, Lopez-Pierre blasted out an e-mail to Benjamin accusing him of being an Uncle Tom and copied thirty other politicos - including Levine - on his screed.
The email is after the break. Be warned - it's not something to be proud of.
"January 3, 2013
Brain [sic] Benjamin:
First I would like to say Happy New Year!
Now that bullshit is out of the way, I wanted to say this to your face but I did not want my words to be misunderstood.
So I am sending it to you in writing and sharing it with others.
I see that you are on the host committee for Mark Levine for City Council.
I would hope that one day you would give me the legal grounds to bitch slap you.
You are an uncle Tom Nigger bitch.
Its Nigger bitches like you that have sold out the Black people of Harlem.
To think there are about eight other candidates in this race that are Black and Hispanic and you decided to pick Mark Levine the only White/Jewish guy in the race to raise money for.
What good does it do our community (by this I mean Black and Hispanic people) to have uncle Tom Nigger bitches like you graduate from Ivy League schools if all you do is suck the cock of guys like Mark Levine.
All the best,
PS, The reason why you got your Nigger ass kicked (politically) by Jamaal Nelson when you ran for district leader is because Black people in Harlem can smell the Bitch in you.
They know that you are a weak, little short man who sucks White/Jewish cock."
Would you vote for a man who sends out shit like this? I wouldn't.
