Lifelong Democrat Condemns Jenkins for Blackface Break-ins

A self-identified lifelong Democrat in Dallas renounced his support for County Judge Clay Jenkins, accusing him of “terrorizing young girls” in college while allegedly wearing blackface.

At last week’s Dallas County Commissioners Court meeting, Noah Schwartz approached the stand and explained that he was a “lifelong Democrat” and previous supporter of Jenkins.

“[I] really admired your leadership over the past few years, especially during COVID,” Schwartz said to Jenkins directly. “You did everything in your power to keep us safe.”

“I was so proud to call you my county judge,” Schwartz continued. “But that all changed when I read the police report of you going into women’s dormitories while you were in college dressed in blackface because you thought it was funny to terrorize young girls for no reason whatsoever.”

“Not only that, but the police spent two weeks targeting black people in the community for a series of crimes that you committed,” he told Jenkins. “If you hadn’t gotten caught, then you would have been perfectly okay with letting an innocent black man go to jail for your amusement.”

“So how can I trust you to stand with black lives and fight for racial justice when you’ve shown such a blatant disregard for the black community?” asked Schwartz.

He continued, “You’re just another entitled white male who gets a kick out of exploiting women and appropriating other people’s cultures.”

“I can no longer in good conscience support you representing me,” Schwartz concluded.

Jenkins offered no response to Schwartz’s comments.

As reported by The Dallas Express, Jenkins allegedly wore blackface as a student at Baylor University while criminally trespassing in women’s bedrooms, according to a recently uncovered police report.

Jenkins’ campaign manager Sean Gregory responded to these reports admitting that Jenkins broke into the girls’ apartment with his face darkened, but denied any racial component.

“Judge Jenkins apologized then, when he was 19, and continues to be sorry for the poor judgment he exhibited at that time,” said Gregory. “He has never darkened his face in an attempt to appear as a member of another race.”

Jenkins’ political opponent in the race for county judge, Lauren Davis, also criticized him, telling The Dallas Express, “he terrorized four women, ransacked an apartment, and disguised himself. He clearly does not represent the values of Dallas County. I will let his actions speak for themselves. As a Dallas County citizen, I am tired of these career politicians lying to our face and getting away with it.”

Seriously? The guy was an immature 19 year old kid. I’d like to know what kind of “prank” these self-righteous hypocrites committed at that age. It’s obvious the judge has done a lot of growing since then. He’s also done a lot of good for Dallas County as a mature adult too. These hypocrites had to reach way, way back in the judge’s life to find something to complain about just before the midterms. Now who’s acting immature?

You mean like the press and many senators did with Justice Gorsuch during his Supreme Court confirmation hearings?
I agree that it was in their youth and only think the past needs to be compared to what they are doing in the present.
Having said that, I do think judge Jenkins was overly zealous with the COVID/Wuhan virus mandates.

These democrats are more concerned with the blackface than the break-in. Have you noticed that?

I guess when the campaign manager calls it, “DARKEN FACE” it doesn’t sound as bad. Yeah, ok he did it because he wanted the ladies to think he was a black man.

Democrat party=KKK

Damn people! Were any of you ever 19? You did stuff too but you just weren’t caught, I’m black & I know better than what you are spouting, it’s totally political. Clay had proven himself- have you? The childish exploits of kids should be looked at as just that and after apologies what more do you want? Oh…but if we could look in your closets……..

You’ll notice that all these democrats are more concerned with the fact that jenkins wore black face than the fact that he broke into the home of 2 young ladies to terrorize them.

As a former embarrassing 19 year old, I’m committed to voting against people who bring up embarrassing stuff people did when they were 19.

I just noticed similar comments. I’m having a hard time with judging a person on mistakes they made as a teenager. Surely we recognize we don’t walk through life never doing something we later regret (not including Capital Crimes).
