New Jersey Councilwoman Allegedly Has A Racist Diatribe On Tape

As if the recorded racist rant of Clippers owner Donald Sterling has not been enough, the Root is reporting that New Jersey Councilwoman Marie Strumolo Burke has a recorded racist rant of her own.  She is from Belleville, New Jersey, and she allegedly left a racist voicemail on a fellow council member’s answering machine.

NJ.com originally reported the story, and they are reporting that a Michigan based forensics lab has concluded that there is an 85 percent certainty that the person heard on the voice mail message is in fact Marie Strumolo Burke.  It is being reported that the message was left in response to a discussion regarding proposed changes to the tax rates in Bellville.  At the end of the message, Burke states, “This is terrible.  This is terrible.  This is gonna be a f—king n—gertown.”

What makes this incident more significant is that Burke is not just a councilwoman, she is also running for mayor.  The election for mayor is set to take place in June.  Fellow mayoral candidate and incumbent mayor Raymond Kimble is calling for Burke’s resignation.  However, Burke is alleging that the voice mail recording is the result of Kimble playing dirty politics, and even with the conclusion from the forensics lab, Burke is denying that it is her making the racist comments on the message.  Kimble reports that he received the tape of Burke’s racist outburst in October 2013, and Burke is using the fact that Kimble was in possession of the recording to allude to the idea that Kimble may have manufactured the recording and that there is not truth to it.  She has even stated that there was not need for thousands of dollars to be spent for voice analysis to determine if she is the one who left the message.  Hopefully voters will side with the fact that a forensics team did in fact conclude that it is most likely her on the tapes and choose to not elect someone who clearly is racist.

    ..but we can’t play the race card, right? And we are always accused of playing the race card. So my answer to that is this? If you’re white? You have no idea what’s its like to be non-white, (and I wouldn’t want to white for nothing in this world could pay me).

    Again, America has always played the race card in nearly every thing that we know of in this Nation’s infrastructure of America even to this very day.

    And when a white person tells you , how dare you play the race card? Make sure you let them KNOW you-re white and wouldn’t have an idea what it would be like if you were not white and how you or any other could use the race card so covertly as business as normal and ACCEPTED with supremacy. So(IMPO) how can whites tell me that I can’t play the race card, if race is involved and based upon race unfairly or an IN DIFFERENCE becuz of RACE?? I’m playing the race card PERIOD.. becuz of covert PPL like this council woman, this type of thing is happening more often than you want to admit and more whites in this nation thinks just like this white woman, even those you think of as someone who wouldn’t think as such… they work with you, go to happy hour with you, but don’t want you LIVING in their neighborhood.. becuz you’ll bring the WRONG elements to their neighborhood.

    Only people who want you to stay in the dark will say you’re playing the race card to keep you in the dark. Racism is a REALITY! Point blank! There’s no sugar coating s**t!

    I HATE IGNORANCE IN ANY FORM OR COLOR, WHITE,BLACK, HISPANIC, ETC, WHEN GOD MY FATHER MADE MANKIND AND WOMANKIND HE KNEW THAT THERE WOULD BE MANY WHO WOULD NOT LIKE THOSE WHO WHERE OF A DIFFERENT RACE AND COLOR. THOSE WHO CRUCIFIED JESUS BECAUSE HE WAS DIFFERENT ARE THOSE HERE TO THIS VERY DAY IN THIS CENTURY, WHITE PEOPLE MAYBE NOT ALL BUT MANY WHO STILL ARE IGNORANT AND RACIST AND SOME OF YOU HIDE IT OR AT LEAST TRY TO HIDE IT, BUT WHAT YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND IS GOD MY FATHER SEES THE EVIL INSIDE YOUR HEARTS AND SPIRIT AND NOT ONLY THOSE WHO ARE WHITE BUT THE EVIL IN ALL OF THOSE WHO ARE EVIL. I KNOW THAT HEAVEN DOES TRULY EXIST DUE TO PROBLEMS OF MY HEART AND MY HEART STOPPING FOR 30’MINS, FIGHTING FOR MY WIFE, BUT THOSE OF YOU WHO PRETEND TO LOVE GOD AND JESUS AND MY HEAVENLY FAMILY WILL SOON FIND OUT WHEN YOUR JUDGEMENT TIME COMES. THROUGH YOUR OWN IGNORANCE YOU SHALL BE JUDGED THEN YOU WILL NOT THINK THAT IT IS FUNNY ANY LONGER TO BE RACIST AND EVIL.

    Many people, especially those of the so-called white race, who Hates or Dislike, other nationalities, who has believed theit own LIE, will find it hard to stand before God in Judgement, and SEE that HIS SON is BLACK. Rev:1,13-20

    Not hating but if you’re gonna refer to the ignorance of others try to spell and use the word ‘veil’ (not vail) properly. Just saying……maximize, not minimize your credibility.

    White people with their greed for money and fame have screwed this country up and they know it! There is no one else left to blame but the people of color, God knows they will never accept the blame for destroying their country and their families as well as everyone else’s family! Who implemented NAFTA, a White president, that’s why all the jobs are going over seas, who started an unnecessary war, a White president, now we have young people with no arms, hands, legs, PTSD, you name it! They love to meddle in other people’s business when they need to keep their White asses here and clean up the mess they have made of their own country! White folks are so greedy for money that they kill their own elderly relatives, hide their bodies in freezers and continue to claim their social security as though they are still alive, I would say these folks have a straight flight to hell first class!
