Mayor Who Made Sexist, Racist and Ableist Comments Must Resign

Target: Jim Fouts, Mayor of Warren, Michigan

Goal: Resign for making horrifically offensive comments about women, black people and Special Olympics participants.

Mayor Jim Fouts of Warren, Mich., is accused of calling black people chimps and the n-word, women “dried-up c*nts,” and Special Olympics participants the r-word and “not human” while being recorded. This loathsome man is absolutely unfit to serve as mayor if he has these hateful feelings towards people who reside in his own community. Demand hateful Jim Fouts resign as mayor.

Recordings surfaced recently that allegedly feature Mayor Fouts saying that black people look like chimpanzees and that he “…was watching this black woman with her daughter and they looked like two chimps.”

In another part of the recordings, reportedly Fouts explains that he doesn’t want to date older women because “They are pussies when they are young, and when they get older, they’re just mean, hateful dried-up c*nts.”

In a separate recording released last year, Fouts allegedly called Special Olympics participants the r-word, adding that “They’re dysfunctional human beings. They’re not even human beings and I don’t want to be around them. I wish them well in a cage.”

Fouts has said the recordings are fabricated, but more and more evidence has come to light showing otherwise. Someone who holds these views cannot be allowed anywhere near public office. Demand Fouts resign for reportedly making these sickening comments.


Dear Mayor Fouts,

As you know, recordings have been released that allegedly present you making revolting comments about black people, women and Special Olympics participants, using everything from the n-word to the r-word. If these recordings are legitimate, which it’s becoming more clear that they are, then you are a racist, a misogynist and an ableist who does not deserve the the title of mayor.

These comments would show you unfit to serve, especially when your community undoubtedly includes black people, women and people who are differently abled. I demand you resign and never attempt to seek public office again.

  1. Shame on you Mayor FOUT. Really? It saddens me to keep seeing racist people like you. Please get a life and not think that you are the only one that thinks you deserve one. I think its time you grow up. If needed you may want to get counseling for your racist issues. Obviously you NEED it. And you call yourself a Mayor. I think NOT>

  2. These are AUDIO recordings. It has not been proven that he has made these statements. I think he should be considered innocent until proven guilty.
