By The Nashville Voice Editorial Board
As election day in Nashville quickly approaches many Nashvillians are still in the process of researching each candidate. We recently endorsed Mayor David Briley for reelection and listed our reasons for that decision. It is also the view of this Editorial Board that there is case for why Mayoral Candidate Carol Swain should not be elected as the next mayor of our city.
Candidate Swain has a long history of disparaging remarks against Muslims, the LGBTQ community and even her own race of African Americans. Over the years she has made a career as the poster child for the far right movement in this country, appearing often on Fox News and CNN to represent the “black conservative voice”.
We have gathered 10 quotes from Swain that prove she is the mouthpiece of Racism, Homophobia, and Xenophobia.
