After planning and participating in a press conference of pastors opposed to redefining marriage to include same-sex couples, Project 21 member Stacy Swimp received an anonymous voicemail in which he was called the n-word.
On February 24, Stacy and dozens of pastors gathered in Detroit to speak out in favor of traditional marriage. A trial begins in Michigan on February 25 that could overturn a 2004 amendment to the state’s constitution defining marriage as solely between a man and a woman. That amendment was approved by 59 percent of state voters at that time.
Stacy was a key organizer of the conference and spoke during it.
After the press conference ended, Stacy received a voicemail in which the caller referred to him as a “fat, buck-toothed [n-word]” for allegedly “preaching… against someone else’s rights.”
Project 21 members being called the n-word or similar for their beliefs is nothing new. In fact, a Project 21 member once asked NAACP senior vice president Hilary Shelton to “issue a statement condemning those individuals.”
Of course, the NAACP never did anything, despite having received a large packet of evidence of instances of abuses of black conservative due to their opinions and their skin color.
