JoAnn Watson: Meet the Racist Whackjob Detroit City Council Chick Demanding Obama Bailout

By Debbie Schlussel

When I first saw the video, yesterday, on local Detroit news, of Detroit City Councilwoman JoAnn Watson demanding an Obama bailout because of Black votes for Obama, I knew it would go viral. But it’s hardly a surprise to anyone who has followed the whackjob Watson as I have over her long “career” as a Black supremacist and Detroit politician. She never met a race card she didn’t play. But that’s par for the course when it comes to the People’s Republic of the Detroit City Council. It’s no shocker that Obama is now planning to come to Detroit to pimp his plan to raise taxes on the wealthy. That plays well with the folks who elected Watson and her ilk.

As I’ve previously noted on this site, Watson canceled a contract for a Black boxer to get paid ten bucks an hour to train young Black boys in a boxing class. Her reason: the Black former pro boxer wasn’t Black enough because he lived in a Detroit suburb where White people live, instead of Detroit (from which Blacks are leaving in droves). As I noted then, this boxer would have been the only father figure most of these kids would ever have in their lives, but JoAnn Watson made sure that would never happen. Watson loves herself and her racism so much that she spells her first name two different ways (“JoAnn” and “Jo Ann”).

Watson made a career of racial politics and regularly attending Nation of Islam events in Detroit as an honored guest of Louis Farrakhan. She also serves on the board of the Detroit NAACP, which honored Rev. Jeremiah Wright, even after all of his anti-Semitic, racist, pro-HAMAS, bigoted sermons came to light. And Watson voted for and strongly supported “Black-only” contracts and empowerment zones (which she called “African Town”) in Detroit. Yup, that’s the way to get Detroit out of the never-ending dung hole it’s in, right?

Watson was formerly an employee of Congressman John Conyers (D-Marxism), and his Congressional staff was illegally forced to do work on the federal dime to help get her re-elected to the Detroit City Council. She paid him back by supporting the “brilliant” idea of renaming the U.S. half of the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel, the “John Conyers, Jr. Tunnel” (which might be appropriate since it is, in fact, under water).

Other stellar Watson “ideas” to save Detroit have included calling Billy Dee Williams a “racist” for doing Colt 45 malt liquor billboard ads and trying to have the ads banned from Detroit. Uh-huh, that’ll save the city. Um, JoAnn, Lando Calrissian isn’t the reason Detroit is dead. YOU ARE. When the “Red Dawn” movie remake was being filmed in Detroit, this Ms. Thang parked her Detroit-owned car in the middle of the shoot and refused to move because she’s special and demonstrated her usual sense of entitlement, costing the production thousands of dollars.

Watson’s official City of Detroit bio says she “was named by The Nation Magazine as the ‘Most Valuable Local Municipal Official’ in 2010.” Yup, The Nation sure knows how to pick ’em. The Far Left always does, doesn’t it?

Among other “accomplishments” Watson lists in her bio:

Watson has been a frequent presenter during the Congressional Black Caucus Reparations Braintrust Sessions since 1990, . . . a speaker during the United Nations World Conference Against Racism in Durban, South Africa in 2001, a delegate to the Women for a Meaningful Summit Conference in the former U.S.S.R. in 1989; and a keynoter to the State of the Black World Conference in 2003 and 2008 and the American Red Cross National Convention in 1990.. In addition, she has served on the Racial Justice Working Group of the National Council of Churches, President of the National Anti-Klan Network, and on the National Boards of the National Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, National Association for the Study of the Harassment of African American Officials, the Sugar Law Center of the National Lawyers Guild, and the Center for Constitutional Rights, among other organizations

Jo Ann Nichols Watson is a licensed Social Worker with the State of Michigan, and she has authored numerous publications including: Should America Pay published in 2003 and Urban Metaphysics published in 2011. She . . . has sponsored Detroit students who are attending The Latin American medical school in Cuba. . . .

Jo Ann Watson was invited by President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama to an historic reception at the White House on February 22, 2012 to commemorate the groundbreaking ceremony for the Black History wing of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D. C. On February 25th, 2012,

Watson proudly counts Coleman A. Young, . . . John Conyers, Mother Rosa Parks . . . among her mentors.

If you can’t tell from this, here’s a tip: she’s a Marxist nutjob.

Now that you know the background of JoAnn Watson, her demand that the Obama administration bail out Detroit is just same ‘ole, same ‘ole. Just more of her regular brand of crazy.

The people of Detroit keep re-electing her, and they get everything they deserve.

The sooner Detroit goes bankrupt, the happier I’ll be.
Maybe then someone will clean house.

    We are the fools. We should have demanded freebees and offered freebees exceeding what dems used to buy political power. I say, heap it on. Run up debt, print the money.

    Give Americans what they want… The rest of us can watch the screwing we all take.

    As goes, so goes... on December 6, 2012 at 12:33 pm

    Prediction? BAIL OUT!

    Didn’t California’s Gov Brown beg for money? Well he’s not black. Only blacks need apply.

    As goes... on December 6, 2012 at 1:20 pm

    Unfortunately they will go bankrupt during this Obama administration, and you and I will have to bail Detroit out so they can elect even MORE left-wing racist nuts and the cycle will repeat over and over. My family moved to the Detroit metro area almost 50 years ago when I was a kid. Detroit was headed for the dumper then, and it has never gotten any better. This is what leftist racist politicians will do to a city, a state and a country. It won’t be long before the whole country looks like Detroit.

    DG in GA on December 6, 2012 at 4:53 pm

My prediction is, they will get “the bacon”. (Muslims eat bacon?) What’s to stop them? Nothing.

RT on December 5, 2012 at 6:03 pm

I’ve gotta admit, though, I have always sort of admired people who look out for their own interests and their own people and say fuck everybody else and don’t care who knows it or what they think about it. I probably feel like that because I belong to a race (white) that feels they have to kiss everybody’s ass all the time, apologize for everything and pay for everybody else in the whole world, even though they hate our guts. I bet nobody in her “hood” voted for Romney.

RT on December 5, 2012 at 6:08 pm

Jeezo, what a horrible woman. Watson’s face alone could stop a clock. Is there anyone on the Detroit City Council possessed of the testosterone to stand up to her?

Seek on December 5, 2012 at 6:10 pm

Ok, I recognize her picture from other previous posts here. What a complete nutter. She sounds like a load of spontaneous generation of Cynthia McKinney flatulence and Sheila Jackson-Lee bowel movements.

Is this big racist buffoon the same one who said “If you love America, you throw money in her hole”?? If not I reckon they are separated by birth. All of her ilk all sound like they were dropped on their jive heads when the were wee tots.

With 4 more years of Obama-Putin, we will hear more crap like this. And he will gladly kiss their big, Black asses.

She is an embarrassment to the human race but will get cover under this crook regime.

Skunky on December 5, 2012 at 6:14 pm

Hey Debbie, haven’t we seen her before on an episode of Hardcore Pawn?

Jim P. on December 5, 2012 at 6:20 pm


Why do you continue to live in that shithole? I know that every state has their idiots in charge, but it seems that Detroit, like D.C., continues to elect officials based on race (who will give me the most) rather than substance. If that trend spreads down here to Texas, which actually is happening to a certain degree, due to the illegals and their families flooding in, G-d help us all.

WilliamMunny on December 5, 2012 at 6:35 pm

how quaint
mooselambs demanding

obama is right about one thing
the national debt should be run up
as far as it will go

why not

it’s never going to be paid anyway
it has to be cancelled eventually
it’s not an ” if ” but a ” when ”

one way would be to simply declare
the treasury bonds, notes, bills
to be an optional currency

not that anyone in their right mind
would so trade them

but they weren’t in their right minds
when they purchased them

prestigio on December 5, 2012 at 6:39 pm

I’m surprised that she wasn’t invited to the White House yesterday, along with other “influential progressives”, i.e. Rachel Maddow, the Rev. Al, etc., so she could impart her ideas for “economic justice.”

Neils60 on December 5, 2012 at 6:42 pm

Welcome to Black-run America. Think blacks aren’t racist? Think again. Think blacks aren’t Jew-hating POS? Think again. Think blacks are competent enough to run a city? Think about Detriolet. Or Atlanta. Or Oakland. Or Baltimore. Or Philadelphia. Or Washington D.C. Or Chicago.

FrenchKiss on December 5, 2012 at 7:37 pm

    Add Kansas City, Missouri to that list.

    Adela Keenan on December 6, 2012 at 9:21 am

    i grew up in detroit and clearly remember the day i learned about black racism when i was being beaten on the school bus – for being white – and i jumped out of the bus’ emergency door into the middle of 7 mile road to escape the animals…

    kirche on December 6, 2012 at 9:41 am

    FrenchKiss, of course blacks are racist…they’ve had some great teachers! Africans weren’t shipped over to America knowing how to hate white folk….that was a learned response. I mean, putting someone in chattel slavery, lynching them, subjecting them to brutality, discrimination, and Jim Crow laws…that’s pretty hateful. And from that it is learned that the proper response to differences between the races must be to hate. Evil begats evil, hence black racism. Whereas the Bible emphasizes that in Christ there is no Jew or Greek and that “we fight not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against evil in high places”, Satan is laughing all the way to hell and taking a lot of people with him because he’s exploited the human tendency to self-destruct over issues like ethnicity and skin color.

    As a result, world history has had genocides, massacres, holocausts, slavery based on race and ethnicity, and that spirit continues even today. It’s like that “Redjac” character on one of the old Star Trek episode…it’s a spirit of satanic evil that continues from century to century, and I see it is present in both you and this moose of woman named JoAnn Watson. And that means yet again, race and ethnic hatred will cause too many people to create a lot of hell on earth before they end up going to hell….

    Melyssa on December 6, 2012 at 11:22 am

      Melyssa claimed that blacks learned how to be racists “from da white folks”.

      Here’s a newsflash moron: Blacks SOLD other blacks into slavery in Africa. Whites weren’t out hunting for slaves. Arabs also participated. Now that still doesn’t explain why this table-cloth wearing sheboon is racist. Especially with affirmative action, welfare, quotas and set-asides instituted and run by the whites. It also doesn’t explain why 150 years after the Civil War, and 40 years after the Civil Rights Act, these ungrateful negros are still stuck in their sewers. Here’s the explanation: they test lower than whites on IQ tests.

      FrenchKiss on December 6, 2012 at 1:56 pm

        But here’s the interesting thing Frenchkiss…recent African immigrants to the United States tend to test higher than both American blacks and whites on IQ tests. And the average African immigrant to the USA speaks at least two European languages in addition to English…the average American, both white and black, speaks only English.

        I guess being in America has taught us to hate AND dumbed us down…so we’re BOTH morons now!

        Melyssa on December 6, 2012 at 4:48 pm

          You are the only moron cuz your “facts” are bullshit.

          Frenchkiss on December 6, 2012 at 10:39 pm

      @Melyssa on December 6, 2012 at 11:22 am

      And all that happened………… yesterday. And every white person living now had a hand in it. And every aggrieved group has a a damn good excuse to do whatever because of it.

      With your warped-ass way of thinking, thank G-d your not in public office! Mental illness run in your family?

      UseYourBrain on December 8, 2012 at 8:51 am

    Good thing I am sitting down. I wasn’t ready for Frenchie to get it right for once!!

    As goes... on December 6, 2012 at 1:27 pm

My first response as a former long time Michigander?….AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

My second response as a devoted Republican?…..AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

My third response as a self made upper middle class income earner?…..”told you so”

My last response as a white man who doesn’t care about what color someone happens to be?…..”I’m not surprised one bit”

You don’t have to say or think or believe anything in particular for there to be racism. Racism is self defining and self perpetuating due to the uncontrollable human condition. Racism is nothing more than a human condition which lives and breathes in EVERYONE. Individuals are called “racist” only when they acknowledge the essential truth and unmasked reality of the differences in particular cultures and races of human beings.

Detroit happens to be a picture perfect example of the undeniable and very natural of racism.

Take any large American city and be brave enough to yourself to take note of the variable which it shares with any other large American city. It’s the constant which makes the condition, never the wide range of variables. We mask the truth with the lie of “multiculturalism”.

So, Mr. President,…..please tell us all that you’re having at least a little bit of trouble sleeping at night. Please tell us that there’s at least a little bit of conscience left….please? Are you going to pay back those who paid for your re-election?…pay them back with our hard earned tax dollars?…

“told you so” just doesn’t seem to be enough to ease the pain of being so brutally f’ed in the posterior like we just were this past November.

Here you go, Black America, Unions, welfare recipients, etc……Hail To The Chief.

I think I’m going to be sick,…..

engineerjack on December 5, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    engineerjack – same here, former michigander, devoted conservative and self-made upper middle class… i could’ve written your exact email!


    kirche on December 6, 2012 at 9:48 am

Jo Ann Watson’s putrid background is a resume enhancer in the near shovel ready for burial city of Detroit.

Nothing is more sadly predictable than the low clue and no clue citizens of Detroit casting votes,all too consistently, against their own best interests.

lee, of the lower case "l" on December 5, 2012 at 8:54 pm

On a totally different note all together;

I have to say that Debbie is one of the most attractive women I’ve ever seen! I believe part of that beauty is her courage and intelligence to speak her mind and know what she’s talking about.

Actually, all that aside, she’s simply gorgeous……

engineerjack on December 5, 2012 at 8:57 pm

M&M’s, Kit Kat, Twix. But how much for the snicka?

StinkyBird on December 5, 2012 at 9:44 pm

    StinkyBird, go 2 my Twitters 2 follow articles U should read (I just followed you).

    BTW JoAnn looks like she eats lots of “Snickas”. LOLOL!

    Skunky on December 5, 2012 at 11:26 pm

      Skunky, what two articles should I read? There are so many. It is taking me forever to learn how to use Twitter.

      How do I make my photo appear on DS website blog?

      As goes… response is HILARIOUS!

      StinkyBird on December 6, 2012 at 10:09 pm

What is up with these black state officals? This fat tub of stupidity reminds me of Lousie Lucas from Virginia. Remember her. She was the dumbass state rep.who said that Romney was only comfortable in the presence of other racist white people.
Mz Watson is your typical black, loud mouthed, entitlted, emptyheaded racist bully. The only reason that this POS gets away with her antics is because if you say anything to her she will play the race card faster than you can say rummy. It also tells you what happens when black liberal vapor trails like Jo Ann run the show. Detroit used to be a great city but it is slowly sliding into oblivion. Just like Shi’itcago, Filthadelphia, and Oaklund.

Ken b on December 5, 2012 at 9:56 pm

Blacks like her embarrass the hell out of me. When I lived in Korea, I had a friend who was from Detroit. He said “if I could, I would take every American in Korea and put them on buses so that I can give them a tour of Detroit. I would do the tour because I want to show them that this is what socialism looks like.”

Mr. Lawrence on December 5, 2012 at 10:12 pm

Detroit is not that unique. What is happening there is comparable to what happens whenever radical mobs take over. Complete chaos, inability to govern, inability to function as a coherent entity.

This is happening in ‘Palestine’, Sudan, starting to happen in South Africa, and similar places. And like all of these other places, they are seeking more and more handouts.

The mistake by the lake.

Little Al on December 5, 2012 at 11:05 pm

Debbie, I feel you living in Detroit and having this woman “represent” you. I thought the my city council memebers here in San Francisco were nuts, this woman makes them look sane by every stretch of the imagination. This woman epitomes what black racism, government dependence,little or no class at all. I would not live in Detroit if homes were dirt cheap or free. Like the saying goes, you get the government you vote for.

Mario on December 5, 2012 at 11:51 pm

Debbie, you really expect someone like Watson to promote “father figures?” You know better. It’s all about the matriarchy and castrating strong male figures.

Italkit on December 6, 2012 at 1:16 am

It is just depressing now.

Worry01 on December 6, 2012 at 8:23 am

    Detroit has their JoAnn Watson and L.A. has their Maxine Waters. . . Both cities going down financially with reckless spending for the “GimmeMo” crowd.

    Rochelle on December 6, 2012 at 9:38 am

Jo Ann is a very white-sounding name. she should change her name to Ju-ju Africa Towne… with the ‘e’ on the end because it’s classy.

kirche on December 6, 2012 at 9:35 am

I hope that we will soon have a new law for state managers to come in and take over in Michigan. The old one was defeated but, it will soon be redone. Detroit needs to be plowed under along with all the crap that was started in the early 60’s that has cost this state dearly along with making a formerly great town into a laughing stock for comments like this marxist bozo.

Jonathan Gartner on December 6, 2012 at 12:27 pm

Whether she spells it JackAss or Jack Ass she still is one.

BTW JackAss, the moguls that made Detroit a powerhouse carmaking city back in the day were whiteguys, or white guys.

panhandle on December 6, 2012 at 1:08 pm

Po’ Black Racists….dey gots what dey wanted,but dey lawst what dey had….and typical Black radical-racists, they’re too childish, brainless,and full of hubris to see – and especially,admit – that Whitey was right and they were totally wrong.

MartelReborn on December 6, 2012 at 1:27 pm

Wait till Obama care is rationed and fat black snicka eaters get PRIORITY.

As goes... on December 6, 2012 at 1:31 pm

What do you expect from people whose pride is laziness and live on welfare. Whose pride is a fatherless society as long as they have free fun???? USA’s problems are not only economic, they are social too. Unless we repair the society we will always be raising the debt limit and bless Democracy that enables the lazies to enjoy life better than the working poor.

G. R. Scharoubim on December 6, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    What people, G.R.? 33% of Blacks are on some form of public assistance…that is FAR from the majority. And there are many more whites on welfare than blacks, but most folks tend to ignore the “Honey Boo-Boo” families of the USA and think only blacks are lazy and poor. Last I looked, most black people are working their tails off and trying to avoid layoffs like everyone else…

    People like JoAnn Watson and Sheila Jackson Lee (I can’t believe the same district that would elect a Barbara Jordan would elect her) are an embarrassment to many black folks…don’t put us all in the same mix.

    Melyssa on December 6, 2012 at 4:54 pm

Got to agree with RT, FrenchKiss, and engineer Jack. And this woman is a joke. Unfortunately very expensive, morally bankrupt, racist and self entitled.

samurai on December 6, 2012 at 10:45 pm

Did she contact Fearless Leader on he Obamaphone?

Detroit city council member JoAnn Watson’s property taxes: $68

DETROIT — A Detroit City Council member who paid $68 in property taxes this year because city records indicate her home doesn’t exist, said she thought damage caused by a tornado was the reason her bill was so low.

But JoAnn Watson couldn’t recall exactly when the tornado struck her well-kept brick, Tudor-style home on the city’s west side, saying it might have been 1993 or 2002. She said she was unaware of a city records discrepancy that has for the past decade listed the parcel as an empty lot, despite the home occupying the plot since 1926.

IGotBupkis, Legally Defined Cyberbully in All 57 States on December 8, 2012 at 3:34 am

I think your the one being racist. Unless she’s making an anti-Semitic statement, you really have no reason for your ilk. Get a life!

Piper on January 13, 2013 at 11:07 pm

I think MZ joann needs to be on a bacon free and sinka free diet! and stop belly aching about obamma tossing her a bone, and see I didnt say toss detroit a bone! and the rest of you forgot to mention Kansas shitty!

The Great State of Texas, votes to have a wall built around Detroit to keep wacko Joann and all her cohorts from ever leaving the ruins they have created and causing in harm to any other city!!

David Morgan on July 26, 2013 at 9:26 am

Hi it’s me, I am also visiting this site regularly, this web site is truly good and the people are in fact sharing
pleasant thoughts.

Maddison on September 7, 2014 at 9:28 pm

You article and target audience are racist so your comments aren’t worth the keyboard your typing on, Mrs.Watson is a woman that supports black business and truly wants to see us in a competitive position. There is a storm coming it’s a Strong Force of conscious Black Men Ready to protect her character and others alike, I sure all of the people in the comments don’t live anywhere near Detroit so mind your business
