John Wiley Price, The Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price released statement after a heated exchange of Commissioners Court on Tuesday. In the absence of taking fair and balanced media in Dallas, I wanted to make a statement offering my point of view of a “meeting” held in Dallas County today. Unfortunately, my comments were broadcast without the benefit and the overall context in which they were made.
I was patient and kind in all considered with respect to the recent resignation of an employee of Dallas County. There are laws and commercial practices that govern the discussion of personnel matters and I honor and respect them. I even went so far as to grant a franchise in one-on-one interview with the Dallas Morning News and have done countless interviews with others. However, in open court today, after consideration of all attempts to discuss the matter further, one of the speakers threw a racial slur. “Moolah Chief” has its roots in a slang that was used against Italian immigrants and was later used by the same defame or discredit African American. He continued to use terms like “tribal” and his intention to race an issue was obvious. “[N-word] is [N-word], spoken openly or undercover.
The speakers were critical of the role of Commissioner John Wiley Price’s resignation as administrator Bruce Sherbet County elections. One speaker called Price “the chief mullah of Dallas County, a mullah generally defined as education in trained Muslim religious law and doctrine. Price, only black county commissioner, took offense at the time and asked: “Why all the speakers white?” The audience shouted back, prices were told to “go to hell.” As the screams climbing bailiffs intervened and cleared the room. Price later told KRLD-AM Dallas, he was obliged to respond to being called a “mullah” in this context, he believed to be racist
Dallas County commissioners said Tuesday they are looking at a shortfall and $ 33 million budget for fiscal 2012 to come – not as bad as the last two years, but significant enough for a county government that has been cut to the bone.
