Iowa Democratic Black Caucus Says Zoom Meeting Interrupted By Racial Slurs

DES MOINES, Iowa - The Iowa Democratic Black Caucus is working with police to track down people who interrupted a zoom meeting with racial slurs.

Caucus Director Al Womble says several people joined the group's meeting Sunday, making comments such as the N-Word, the F-Word and White Power, while also making death threats.

"Racists broke into our meeting, hacked in, and started spewing hateful slurs, foul language and even threats against people' lives," said Womble on Facebook.

He said the caucus turned over IP addresses and screen names of some of the people who made the slurs to police in Des Moines.

The slurs interrupted an address from the meeting's guest speaker, U.S. Representative Joyce Beatty.

The Democratic Black Caucus said it won't be intimidated and will reschedule a meetings with Democratic Representatives Cindy Axne of Iowa and Maxine Waters of California later this week.
