Mississippi supervisor calls out racist commenter who threatened ‘N*****s are fixing to get shot’

A Mississippi county supervisor called out a racist threat she says was made against her recently in a comment on Facebook.

Warren County Supervisor Shawn Jackson posted an image of the comment made on a Vicksburg news website.

The news article was regarding Jackson’s request that Warren County supervisors call a special meeting last month to consider removing the Mississippi state flag from county properties.

A commenter on the Facebook share of the article wrote:

“LMFAO this is where the b***s*** stops,” the commenter wrote along with “these N*****s are fixing to get shot.”

Jackson wrote that she took the comment as a threat to her safety.

“This is a serious matter and a testament to why this is NOT the time to be silent on hate and evil,” Jackson posted Saturday.

“I take this for exactly what it is, a threat to my life and safety,” Jackson wrote. “I also take it as being racially driven and falling into the category of a hate crime.”
