Ousted Racist Newspaper Editor Goodloe Sutton Celebrates Freedom: ‘I Can Drink Beer And Chase Women Now’

The editor and publisher of a local newspaper in Alabama celebrated his ouster on Friday by proclaiming: “I can drink beer and chase women now. They can’t run too fast, or I can't catch them.” Goodloe Sutton, editor and publisher of The Democrat-Reporter, resigned from his position earlier in the day after he faced backlash to a racist editorial entitled “Klan needs to ride again.” National headlines noted that Sutton handed over the reigns to a black woman named Elecia Dexter, who has worked at the paper for years.
