Tennessee Pol Under Fire for ‘Black N****r’ Comment in 911 Call

tennessee guyA Tennessee city councilman made a 911 call recently in which he dropped the n-word.

Councilman Johnny James runs a wrecker service and made the 911 call after a customer refused to pay what he owed. On the call, James said, “If you don’t get 941 down here on Jim Dyke Road and Bright Road you’re gonna have one deceased black nigger down here.”

When the operator asked if he had weapons on him, James said, “I don’t need a weapon to beat him to death with.”

James reportedly confronted the man at his truck and the two of them began fighting.

James admitted it probably wasn’t the “proper way” to act and said he regrets it, but said, “I wasn’t acting as a city official. I was acting as a guy that owns a body shop… He pushed me further than I wanted to be pushed.”
