Well just let former committee chair Dexter Pruitt take it away, as reported in the Ada Evening News: We dont want to be that mean, but if we dont get on top of our town weve got too many n-----s and Mexicans moving in.
Well give you a second to pick your jaw up off the floor.
That lovely little sentence (which were pretty sure would get the KKK Seal of Approval) was uttered during a March meeting of Adas Beautification Committee by Chairman Pruitt, who just had been elected chairman. It was a short tenure. Pruitt and two other committee members resigned, and the committee was actually abolished in June by the Ada City Council.
But the worst part other than the fact that Pruitt apparently doesnt want black people or Latinos moving to Ada and thinks that somehow making the town prettier will repel non-whites is that the Ada Evening News reported people laughed after his racist gem.
Unfortunately, the paper didnt specify if it was awkward laughter or more of the Damn straight! variety.
Honestly, we think beautification is probably the least of Adas worries.
