This is horrifying. Sadly it’s also not surprising.
These people are acting like the town is a plantation and they are the masters.

Its unbelievable. People need to go to jail. The rightful mayor needs to take this as far up the ladder as necessary to be properly seated and the usurpers need to be arrested and charged for whatever TF this is.

If black people even THOUGHT about doing something like this whites would have the National Guard out to make sure they kept that power within 3 min.

How is this allowed to go on this long?. This country is disgusting I swear.

I'm old enough now to have seen the changes throughout America over the years. I'm also old enough to see that we are pretty much back where we started from. Straight WM's and the wealthy are controlling it all.

I've also seen the dumbing down of Americans with all these blind cult followers.

Pretty sure they would have had the Klan or Proud Boys out if black people had stopped a white man from taking office.

BowWowwy! That's the Doggone new wave Trumplican playbook. You refuse to step down, sick your supporters on those who have upstaged you, display your poor sportsmanship to the world & ultimately appoint yourself as dictator. Adults that act like whiny adolescents. Sniff, sniff! The dog nose!🐾🐾

Um... someone needs to tell the incumbent that elections aren't about squatter's rights; when you're voted out, you leave

This is a white supremacist coup. With complicity by the state government, because Alabama.

A town's first Black mayor (and first-ever legitimate mayor, it seems), not being able to perform the duties of his office for THREE YEARS because of white squatters is a stain on the whole country.

Not all whites are like this, but the question is what is the remedy, 3 yrs. Later? This stuff is crazy!

This is an interesting article. Hopefully, Mr. Braxton's lawsuit will go somewhere. I can't believe there had never been an official election there.

I was wondering this too. Was there no presidential election or just local?

Another one to add to the totally reprehensible list.

But before you do, you look at the 📆 to check - what year we're in???

Hi @Trini114 The mayor was elected in 2020, and has yet t serve. The former unelected mayor (white) locked him out of the mayor’s office.
