Price and Valdez feud over racial makeup of Sheriff’s Office command staff

Valdez Price

The racial composition of the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department command staff – the top group of chief deputies and assistant chief deputies – has ignited a dispute between two of the county’s most prominent Democrats.

County Commissioner John Wiley Price is battling Sheriff Lupe Valdez, a fellow Democrat, over her proposed promotion of a white man to an assistant chief deputy position that had been previously held by an African-American woman.

Price, who is African-American, fumed in an interview that the sheriff’s department’s seven-person command staff would then have only one African-American – Chief Deputy Marlin Suell – for what he said was the first time in about three decades.

“It’s unacceptable,” Price said in what he described as the “note card” version of the discussion he plans to have next week at commissioners court. Dallas Morning News

Racism is alive and well in Dallas County Texas, and County Commissioner John Wiley Price, a Democrat and well known activist and all around trouble maker is leading the charge.

I am NOT a politically correct blogger, I will NOT call John Wiley Price an *African-American* simply because he is, as far as I know, NOT African. John Wiley Price is Black and is, in MY opinion, a racist of the 1st order. From a friend on Facebook:

He stages “boycotts” of White businesses in his district because he says only Blacks should deal with Blacks. He marches with the New Black Panthers and is rumored to be a member. He vandalizes cars, assaults whites, rigs elections, rigs county bidding and then claims harassment by the Feds.

None of this is an exaggeration in any way; an example is offered here.

Price has aroused local controversy during his time in office. During the 1980s and 1990s Price would lead protests for racial issues in the Dallas area. In 1991 during a protest, Price was accused of breaking the ankle of a white construction worker. In May 1992, Price was found not guilty of felony assault charges from the incident.  The verdict was rendered just days after the Rodney King riots in the Los Angeles area, and several jurors reported to have received threatening phones calls during the trial.[2] Among many other instances, Price received national media attention when he took offense at the use of the term “black hole” by a fellow commissioner.[3] His words were lampooned repeatedly by the media and radio talk show hosts including Rush Limbaugh [4]

Price again made headlines when he launched a profanity-laced tirade at a December 2009 Dallas County Commissioner’s Court meeting over the ongoing investigation of impropriety among Dallas Constables. Price repeatedly pounded on the desk in front of him and responded to a call from County Judge Jim Foster for order by declaring that Foster should “Make me come to order!” [5]

In February 2011 Price got into a shouting match with Dallas lawyer Jeff Turner at a Dallas county commissioner’s meeting. Turner repeatedly called Price a ‘Chief Mullah’ and ‘tribal’, terms that that Price took offense to and led him to ask Turner to speak to him in private. Price later stated that he interpreted “Mullah” as “Moolah”, similar to the racial epithet “Moulie”. The public confrontation resulted in a shouting match before Price asked out loud why all the speakers were white. When an audience member shouted, “You’ve asked respect of us. We demand respect from you,” Price said “All of you are white. Go to hell”. Price then headed for the exit and challenged the protesters to follow him and continue the discussion outside. At this point security personnel ordered the court to be cleared.[6] SOURCE

To further educate those not familiar with John Wiley Price:

In July 2011, Price and multiple associates were served with search warrants obtained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation arising out of acts of alleged public corruption. The warrant on Price’s residence specified a search for data related to violations of the U.S. Code Titles 18, 26, or 31, specifically “Theft or Bribery Concerning Programs Receiving Federal Funds,” tax evasion, fraud, false statements, money laundering, and “aiding and abetting and conspiracy to violate these statutes.” [7] The FBI seized multiple assets belonging to Price. Price is currently being investigated by the FBI.[8]

To the best of my knowledge that investigation is STILL being conducted.

I am of the opinion that qualifications mean NOTHING to Price; all that matters is the COLOR of the skin of any particular person to hold an office or position. If Price had his way ALL of Dallas County would be administered by Black individuals, whether qualified or not, and his idea of *affirmative action* would be the order of the day.

Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez has her OWN set of issues it appears.

Valdez, who is Hispanic, declined to be interviewed. In a prepared statement, she said, “We appreciate Commissioner Price’s concern and understand his frustration since we share the mission to continuously promote diversity and inclusion.”

“I never want to be the person that promotes injustice and inequality,” Valdez said. “I have selected the best qualified person.”

So, I have to ask; if your mission is to continuously promote diversity and inclusion, doesn’t the next line about the best qualified person speak to the opposite?

Any time a person is promoted, regardless of the position, and that promotion is based on diversity and inclusion, the most qualified person for the job may not even garner consideration.

Dallas County is exhibiting a prime example of exactly what happens when the liberal progressivism of the Democratic Party is allowed to take control, a lot like what we’re seeing in Washington right now.

    Typical of a black liberal/democrat. Detroit just elected their first white mayor in 40 years after becoming tired and fed up with “an office that’s been wracked by racial discord, scandal and ensnared by city bureaucracies.” Although hes is a democrat he currently appears to have the experience and qualifications to look past racial make-up and hire the best people and make the best decisions for the city.

    When someone like J.W. Price only looks at color, rest assured there is corruption in their thoughts and actions. Dallas county needs to vote him out of office as he is an embarrassment to the whole black community…just like our Sheila Jackson Lee!!

      The reason Duggan was elected mayor of Detroit was because he’s a Democrats. Detroit’s population is so trained and conditioned to vote Democrat, it doesn’t matter who the opponent is; the Democrat will win. Dugan’s Republican opponent was not only a Black man but is also Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon. Detroit finally had a chance to elect a well qualified Black man with a law enforcement background, much needed in Detroit, and they wouldn’t do it because he was a Republican. Dugan may be well qualified and be able to do something to turn Detroit around but in Detroit that’s irrelevant. All that mattered was that he’s a Democrat. If David Duke had remained a Democrat and ran for mayor of Detroit, he would have won.

    1 out of 7 sounds like about the right percentage ratio of the makeup of blacks in overall society. Why is it “unacceptable” JWP???
    On another note, the population inside Lew Sterrett is more than 1 to 7 (so be happy about that) :)

  3. Hgpsurf says:

    Every position in every job should be based on qualification and I don’t care what the color the skin is on the most qualified. If all positions are filled by white people it is a message to the black population that they should work harder and vice versa for the whites if all positions are filled by blacks.

    Price has his head where the sun don’t shine and people like him are the ones who stuck us with Obama.

    Most of this brouhaha we can contribute to racial/class divides perpetrated and promoted by the Traitor in Chief. He and Holder have been instrumental in bringing about a new iteration of class warfare. To what end you might ask? To create yet another social “crisis” which needs governmental involvement.

    Eventually we will probably find ourselves faced with martial law and all the horrible things that accompany it. A very wise black man over 100 years ago shined a light on this phenomenon.

    “There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy, and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. … There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.” — Booker T. Washington in his 1911 book, My Larger Education

    Whatever you may think of professor Washington, he has a valid point, and can we all say Rev. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Maxine Waters, et al?.

    Why, oh why, is it only blacks who are permitted to get away with saying such things? How are some of his actions and speech not considered a form of hate crime? How does he continue to hold his office? So intelligence and qualifications don’t matter, as long as the body is the right color. Does that sum it up?
    And they have the unmitigated gall to accuse ‘whites’ of racism.
    And yet, how typical of a liberal black. Big mouth, big attitude, small brain.

    • TexasFred says:

      In ALL honesty; the people he represents are even dumber, and of lower information than he is.. They love him, just like so many love Obama..

      People like Price and Obama could commit MURDER on national TV and their core group, the Black community, would still love them and vote for them again, several times if possible, simply because they perceive a *brotherhood* with them because they are Black..

      Qualifications mean nothing, just skin color…

    John Wiley Price is STUPID, and the judge, Judge Thomas Jones, is NO better… Racist BASTARDS looking for a fight at the use of a word they have NO knowledge of.

    A special meeting about Dallas County traffic tickets turned tense and bizarre this afternoon.

    County commissioners were discussing problems with the central collections office that is used to process traffic ticket payments and handle other paperwork normally done by the JP Courts.

    Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield, who is white, said it seemed that central collections “has become a black hole” because paperwork reportedly has become lost in the office.

    Commissioner John Wiley Price, who is black, interrupted him with a loud “Excuse me!” He then corrected his colleague, saying the office has become a “white hole.”

    That prompted Judge Thomas Jones, who is black, to demand an apology from Mayfield for his racially insensitive analogy.

    Mayfield shot back that it was a figure of speech and a science term. A black hole, according to Webster’s, is perhaps “the invisible remains of a collapsed star, with an intense gravitational field from which neither light nor matter can escape.”

    Other county officials quickly interceded to break it up and get the meeting back on track. TV news cameras were rolling, after all. SOURCE

    Stupidity runs DEEP in *some* elected officials..

    Webster’s Dictionary lists John Wiley Price as it’s definition of a “loud mouthed Ni***r.
