Racist Republican Comment O Day- Tarrant County Judge *Slaves Bigger and Better Athletes*

2 May 2007 at 12:07:22 PM

And that's not ALL he said. The man did try to pull the Alberto Gonzales tactic of "Gee, I don't remember saying that".

County Court at Law Judge Brent Keis is being accused of making racially insensitive comments to a black lawyer that suggested descendents of slaves who survived the perilous trip from Africa are "bigger and stronger athletes because weak slaves were thrown overboard and never made it to the Americas."

During a courtroom session when Keis gave his standard speech about the risks of going to trial instead of settling out of court, the judge also reportedly told the attorney's clients -- who are white -- that Tarrant County is made up of Republicans who think like him, and compared the risk of continuing with the case instead of settling to "bet[ting] on black."

"I was shocked he would say that as a judge," Witherspoon said. "I was waiting for [comedian] Dave Chappelle to come out of the back room and cameras to come out, like I was on Candid Camera."
