President-elect Donald Trump continues to stock his cabinet with questionable choices. Several media sources are reporting that Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions has been picked to be attorney general.
However, Sessions has a troubling racial past. The Business Standard News, received an email from a former co-worker who said Sessions often displayed hostility towards black people.
“Sessions was so racist, he banned us from using black ink. We could only use blue pens,” said the man, who wanted to remain anonymous. “He also banned the secretaries from putting up pictures of Denzel Washington and Will Smith.”
According to the Washington Post, Sessions was so racist that he was denied a federal position during the Reagan administration.
“In 1986, a Senate committee denied Sessions, then a 39-year-old U.S. attorney in Alabama, a federal judgeship. His former colleagues testified Sessions used the n-word and joked about the Ku Klux Klan, saying he thought they were ‘okay, until he learned that they smoked marijuana,'” according to Post writer Amber Phillips.
Trump has also tapped Gen. Michael Flynn to be his National Security Advisor. Flynn has called Islam a cancer and thinks America is in danger of being overrun by sharia law, according to the New York Times.
