Pamela Ramsey Taylor, the director of the non-profit Clay County Development Corporation in Clay County West Virginia will be back to work by the end of the month. She is the woman who posted that Michelle Obama was an “ape in heels” on Facebook. After the incident, it was purported that she had lost her job. Well, that was wrong as she was only temporarily suspended.
And while, Clay County Mayor Beverly Whaling resigned after it was made public that her response to the post was, “you made my day.” this example of acceptable racism is becoming more and more prevalent since Trump’s election.
Racists are emboldened and the number of hate crimes according to the Southern Poverty Law Center is up. It is only the beginning.
If you want to be a part of the resistance here is the phone number for the Clay County Development Corporation where Taylor works. Let them know what you think about her keeping her job. (304) 587-4251
