The mayor of Charlottesville released a tweet on Wednesday claiming her town was equivalent to a “cum stained sheet.” Mayor Nikuyah Walker of Charlottesville, Virginia, tweeted an image that read:
“Charlottesville: The beautiful-ugly it is. It rapes you, comforts you in its cum stained sheet and tells you to keep its secrets.”
The image from the tweet appears to be a screenshot of a tweet from her personal account. It is unclear why she shared this post, or had these things to say about the community that she leads.
She issued a response to social media. It was in response to whoever reported her post to Facebook, which reportedly resulted in a ban. She clarified and expanded on her earlier post, saying that the the city has “lynched you, hung the noose at city hall and pressed the souvenir that was once your finger against its lips.”
Walker said that Charlottesville “covers” “death with good intentions,” and brought in race, saying that the city is “a place where white women with [b]lack kids collects signature for a white man who questions whether a black woman understands white supremacy.”
She slammed gentrification, “white power,” and how the city has a “daily practice” of “separating you from your soul.” Though she leads the town as mayor, she says the town has no moral compass. Walker intoned images of enslavement, saying that “It’s as if good ole tj [Thomas Jefferson?] is still cleverly using his whip to whip the current inhabitants into submissiveness.”
