Georgia county investigator David Daniel (pictured) resigned this week after a Facebook, blaming the death of a 1-year-old Rodrickus Robinson on violent “Black culture,” according to Raw Story.
Robinson died over the weekend, after he was caught in the crossfire of a gunfight in his Atlanta, Ga., neighborhood. The shooting reportedly prompted Clayton County Investigator Daniel to rail against the Black community during a visit to the Facebook page of WSB-TV.
Raw Story reports:
“Violence with guns is unfortunately a part of the Black culture and will never get better until the government stops supporting them and they are taught to work for what they get and not take from others,” he wrote.
Several Facebook commenters lashed out by calling the remarks “racist.”
“It had nothing to do with the child when it should have been all about the child,” Stephanie Morgan explained to WSB-TV.
The report says Daniel was suspended by Clayton County District Attorney Tracy Graham Lawson and informed of plans to terminate his services, but Daniel’s attorney, Keith Martin, reportedly said Tuesday that his client would resign instead of being fired.
Good call on Daniel’s part. He also needs to retire his White Privilege card.
