White Governor Of Maine Says NAACP Can “Kiss His Butt”…Refuses To Attend Event Honoring MLK

- By Bossip Staff

Sounds like someone is wayyyy out of pocket:

Maine Republican Gov. Paul LePage is keeping up his reputation for blunt language, telling an unhappy NAACP chapter that they can “kiss my butt.”
The governor made the comments to CNN affiliate WCSH after being asked about criticism he received from the organization for refusing to attend an event it is sponsoring on behalf of Martin Luther King Day.

“They are a special interest. End of story…and I’m not going to be held hostage by special interests. And if they want, they can look at my family picture. My son happens to be black, so they can do whatever they’d like about it,” LePage said.

The governor has an adopted son from Jamaica, according to WSCH. Specifically, the NAACP event involved meeting with black prisoners at the state prison. Le Page maintains the organization rejected his requirement to meet with all prisoners at the event.

“That wasn’t acceptable to them,” LePage said. “So, tough luck.” During his campaign for governor, the Tea Party-backed LePage faced fire when he said he would tell President Obama to “go to hell” if he was elected. LePage later said he regretted the bluntness of his words.

      Compared to the thousands of special interest groups that we cannot, or do not know about due to secrecy from us to stay away, I know it is ludacrist for anyone to complain about our little weak NAACP where it is really needed in our communities and people.

    I just love the fact that white people thinks that they get a past to say something stupid because they own something black.

  • Embark

    I’m sure he doesn’t wash his hands after he holds little Bob Marley LePage’s hands.

    and why couldn’t the NAACP allow all prisoners to attend the the event? Im pretty sure MLK would have wanted it that way.

  • if anything be noble

    Wow… such clas.s. What a visionary. I see great things ahead for Maine with the ‘kiss my butt’ style of leadership. In fact, he’s so bright, sharp and thorough that he’ll probably be right up there in no time flat with Mandela, Gandhi and King..

    You mean a white man is being racist? Stop the presses..

    What’s new though?

  • daresay

    Why did he have to throw his son in the mix? “I’m not going” should have been enough without involving his family. Must you use your son to justify the reason why you are not? Oh, I get it…you only did so cos your son is black.

    You african americans need to get of your high horses. Your as racist as white americans. Thank god my parents brought me up in the UK i would hate to have the same mentanility as americans.

    • Yessica

      racism happens when members of society’s most powerful ethnic group (White) suppresses other ethnic groups — through economic power, for example, or by having the power of the majority group. So yes while ppl of color can make comments towards other races they do not hold the collective power that white ppl do in our society so it doesn’t hold the same power. But in regards to this man his request to be able to meet with all the prisoners is valid and when they declined it was hit right to refuse to attend, he just may not have handled it correctly. Also the UK has its own problems in its race relations.

  • Tm30

    Why not put race aside and meet with all prisoners? It is an MLK event after all. IMO, these events should become more mainstream, so that his vision isn’t lost in 50 years. As for the governor, he could have chosen his words carefully but would it have made that much of a difference? He would have still been in the news. This way they know not to ask him again, lol.

  • jt

    who cares? and why does he have to honor MLK? this is so asinine the naccp is stupid and racist: come meet with black prisoners but not all prisoners.

  • if anything be noble

    @ real talk uk– I’m not defending ignorance anywhere but when you come live for years in the US as a Black American, maybe you can speak on the experience. And when I come live in the UK for years as a Black Brit, maybe I can speak on that. But until all that flying back and forth takes place, please stop with the ‘I’m so glad I’m me/US Blackfolk are ______’ stuff.


    So what. We don’t give a damn about you either. The feeling is mutual

  • no $hit $herlock !!!

    don’t buy the tripe: skinheads ORIGINATED in the UK.

    they STILL go “paki bashing” — beating up immigrants from south asia, whom the skinheads call “pakis”.

    they have what they call “sus stops” where they can stop and question anybody who looks “suspicious” — btw, even with that flubber lip nigguh Nutter as mayor (who spports it), there is a similar “stop and frisk” law in Philly.

    the bull$hit hype that europe is racism free is just that — BULL$HIT.

    don’t believe that propaganda from posters from ANYWHERE who claim to live in a bias free society. even effin jewish kids from russia have been busted in ISRAEL AS SKINHEAD JEW HATERS.

    @if anything be noble- Most blacks who live in the US don’t travel outside of the US. The same is with most Americans PERIOD. Any one would agree that most African Americans who travel outside of the US are opened minded individuals who don’t represent the stereotypical “Black” that never leaves his/her neighborhood for life. So generally speaking from @real talk uks aspect; he is talking from a travelers perception; which by the way is a perception most travelers share. Nevertheless, his talk about growing up with the same mentality as Americans is a view that has been propelled by Americans who don’t and will never see that there is something else important other than thier Soap Box.

    As for the Governor, he does have a right to talk about blacks in his context. It’s like family, you can’t joke about my family, but I can. Your jokes about gays will not be looked at as hurtful, if you yourself have gay friends, and so the same with whites who have taken on the noble of act of adopting a black child, they can joke about black people, they wouldn’t have put themselves in that position unless they have felt something some closesness, that we all have shared.

    • JustLuxe

      Where did you get that most Americans don’t travel abroad? You don’t know this. I won’t even address the stupid black comment. You need to replace “most” with “many”, then it’ll be factual. IJS..

  • Rob (Certified Hater)

    Its a free country, this proud white male has the right to tell Negros to kick rocks. Blacks have no power outside of begging whites for acceptance and integrating into their culture with no plan outside of licking their boot straps. The NACCP and blacks don’t have the power to spank these out of control legislatures or crackers. Negros have no system in place to systematically put pressure on dummies who dont have their interests. The Jewish Defense League would put this little white boy in his place, real quick. You sorry Negros aren’t built for that kind of fiscal warfare. Keep it moving and take this white mans nuts to the chin with pride.

  • no $hit $herlock !!!


    I’m going to agree with you on one point — the NAACP are not the only ones with free speech rights.

    I personally think that the NAACP did the worst
    dis-service to blacks by ranting for affirmative action positions; because qualified blacks are tainted by the label, and unqualified blacks who are shameless enough to take jobs they can’t do, just GUARANTEE that no black will ever be taken seriously.

    The damn NAACP ought to be trying to convince blacks not to SQUANDER the TRILLION DOLLARS that blacks spend yearly in this country on GROTESQUE IDIOCY —– and if so, there would be NO NEED OF $HIT from the “Robs” in this world.

    I guess you didn’t see that coming.

    • Rob (Certified Hater)

      All political movements push for hiring of their constituencies. The Jews do it and so do the Hispanics, its politics. The NAACP pushes for minority jobs and appointments, which is admirable. If you think that the NACCP has tainted blacks, then you dont know history or need a history lesson. Blacks were tainted when they got here and that respect you claim will never happen until blacks can become an economic and educational threat to whites, here and in black countries. You’re looking for a inclusion of racial respect when whites don’t even respect black history, black thought or black nation building. Blacks were never respected by whites educationally because blacks have never spanked their behinds in anything political or economic.

  • if anything be noble

    @ atw, Looking at this thread (if we’re even talking about this thread and not some notion of US Black people the UK poster got from Will Smith, Queen Latifah or Oprah or listening to some rapper) I don’t see Blackfolk being “racist” here. The issue that we were speaking on is the Governor of some state (where Black people live) telling the NAACP to “kiss his butt.” You’re not serious. We could camp out on that for days alone from about 90 different angles… the lack of civility, lack of leadership, lack of respect, lack in general at this man “leading” a state. And I didn’t even touch on his bringing up his adopted Black son as if that had any bearing on how he governs. Smh Dude is GOVERNOR. Governors report to the President. They have to turn in state budgets to plan a federal budget. They get federal dollars. He’s not running his own little fiefdom somewhere with no checks and balances. “High horse” riding Black people have every right to expect intelligence and capability from their governors. That mess is absolutely ridiculous any way you slice it. And I doubt folk from the UK know how the US government is run.
