'Tard of the Week - DeAngelo Starnes

Tuesday, October 28, 2008
Here in Colorado, we have a "right to work" amendment on the ballot. Amendment 47 is designed to prevent the payment of Union dues as a condition of employment for jobs covered under a collective bargaining agreement. One of the Amendment's authors is an Aurora City Councilman named Ryan Frazier.

Needless to say, the local Unions have come out against this measure, as they can anticipate their coffers, influence and effectiveness shrinking as employees choose not to support the Union financially.

Enter DeAngelo Starnes, General Counsel for UFCW Local 7.

Mr. Starnes received an e:mail from Mr. Frazier' mass distribution list, who was promoting a school supply drive. Mr. Frazier received the following commentary from Mr. Starnes:
"You fucking sell-out. Why are you sending this to me? Take me off your e-mail list, House Nigger."
Mr. Frazier responded with:
"Hey, no need for the ignorant language. We will take you off immediately. God bless you."
At which time Mr. Starnes replied:
"Just keep bending over for the white man, alright?"
Charming.

Evidently Mr. Starnes feels that an African American legislator should not have co-authored the Amendment in question, and felt compelled to make his viewpoint clear.

I have to say, Mr. Starnes' language doesn't exactly inspire confidence or lend credibility to the "vote no on 47" position. In fact, it was pretty fucking stupid.

The Local issued a statement that he was no longer performing work for the Union.

What a 'Tard. Good luck finding work now, Mr. Starnes.
