A BLACK mayor was subjected to racial slurs and told to “swing from a tree” after introducing a mask-wearing mandate.

Mayor Quinton Lucas of Kansas City, Missouri, shared the sickening text messages he received from a local, who said they were white.

“You walked with RIOTERS not wearing a mask idiot,” a text read, according to a screenshot Lucas posted on Twitter.

“You should swing from a tree, I’m not threatening it, but would love to see it.”

The vile messages also included a racial slur.

It’s unclear if police are investigating the texts as a threat.

The mayor, who was elected last year, did not share the name or number of the person who allegedly sent the texts.

Lucas was also forced to announce that a photo circulating online that appeared to show him holding a T-shirt that said ‘F*** the police’ was fake.

He shared the photoshopped image next to the original, which showed him at a radio station holding a T-shirt with the station’s logo.

“Odd to have to disprove something so patently ridiculous and nonsensical,” he said.

“Who takes a smiling F the police photo at a rock station?”

“Let’s do better.”


Lucas introduced the MASK mandate last week in an effort to stop the spread of covid-19.

As of yesterday, masks are required to be worn indoors in Kansas City, and the mandate will remain in place until at least July 12.

Lucas has joined in Kansas City protests sparked by the death of George Floyd and other black people at the hands of police.

Floyd died May 25 after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee on Floyd’s neck for nearly eight minutes as the handcuffed man pleaded for air.
