Golden uses the word several times in his memoir
ox News is reporting
that Oregon State Senator Jeff Golden (D-Ashland) repeatedly used the word "n-----" in a book he wrote.
Senator Golden published "Watermelon Summer
" in 1971 about his experience spending a summer on a Georgia sharecropper farm.
Golden is currently running for re-election against Republican Medford Mayor Randy Sparacino.
Golden uses the word "n-----" several times in the book:
- "The Featherfield people are not as politicized as the Muslims, but that may make little or no difference to a white community that perceives the threat of a whole county of uppity n-----s." "And, of course, the only things lower than uppity n-----s are n------lovers."
- "It’s a minor act of defiance to demonstrate that the good-n----- requirement of a skullcap haircut is a thing of the past,"
- Golden wrote about a "barroom brawl involving a n------ lovin’ white" in town.
- "The Smithville police follow us most of the time we’re returning from town, and charged up here immediately last night when they heard about a barroom brawl involving a n-----lovin’ white in Americus."
Democrat Gubernatorial Candidate and former Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek has been endorsed by Senator Golden. The Northwest Observer has reached out to her campaign for a comment, but has not yet received a reply.
"Jeff Golden's words are despicable and should be condemned in the strongest possible terms," said Republican State Leadership Committee Spokesman Zach Kraft. "Jeff Golden owes voters a serious apology and every Democrat candidate for state Senate should condemn Jeff Golden's shameful behavior.”
