Cumberland Co. N.C. Sheriff Candidate’s Wife Makes Racist Post
Cumberland County, N.C. – Numerous Cumberland County residents contacted TPTN Action News and reported that Cumberland Co. Sheriff’s candidate’s wife, Trudy Wright, made an extremely racist and narcissistic Facebook post.
Several Cumberland Co. residents are quite alarmed at the attitude displayed by Ennis Wright’s wife and are shocked at the blatant racist connotations of her comment, “He will be the first African-American to hold the office when he is elected.”
A currently serving deputy sheriff who will not be named to protect his career said; “Apparently Wright’s wife doesn’t understand that around here we elect sheriff’s based on the content of their character and not the color of their skin as taught us by Martin Luther King. Her comment is shameful and shows disrespect for our diverse community.”
Ennis Wright’s wife went on to comment; “I am looking forward to being the first African-American, the first Clarksvillian, the first beauty queen to be seated beside my king in his position as Sheriff.”
Many members of the Cumberland Co. community are shaking their heads in disgust at the audacity of Ennis Wright’s wife’s delusions that she will somehow be sharing a position of authority over the community as a “queen” and that her husband will be an over-lording “king” in Cumberland Co. rather than a public servant who desires to help others. It’s obvious that Trudy Wright is looking forward to wearing her husband’s rank in this community despite the fact that no one is electing her.
And not just a “queen” either, but a beauty queen. “She’s a sufficiently attractive woman to be sure but most assuredly not the beauty that she believes herself to be.” said another Deputy Sheriff with the Sheriff’s Office. The deputy went on to say, “That level of narcissism is very unattractive in a person.”
There’s no ‘misunderstanding’ or ‘misconception’ as her words are very straightforward and clear.
Cumberland Co. community members are openly concerned that candidate for the office of sheriff, Ennis Wright, would tolerate such racism and arrogance in his family and wonder if it is a sign of Ennis Wright’s own values and mental attitude. If his family members act in such a manner then what assurances do we have that he himself does not also harbor ugly racist undertones and political narcissism in his mind and soul and believes himself to be seeking the seat to a ‘kingdom’ in the election?
The citizens of Cumberland Co. deserve better than this as the top law enforcement officer in the county. It seems that Cumberland Co. has a little swamp clearing of its own to do. This kind of racism and arrogance is unacceptable in Cumberland County.

i got this message a week ago and have shared it with everyone i could still have it on my phone who elected him king just show there true colors
agree that this position should be held by SOMEONE qualified in all aspects , not because of race or color , we have had enough of this RACE CARD being played day to day it is time to stop, and this county and its tax paying citizens do not need a KING or QUEEN in this capacity….You never heard remarks like this from the previous Sheriff and we damn sure will not tolerate it now…
Perhaps she is a former beauty queen, she is proud of her man, and there are just a lot of folks that are looking to make anything appear racist. I read nothing in the portion of her FB post that sounded racist. I’m white, very southern country girl and when I had a husband I referred to him as ‘my man’. Many of my African-American friends call their spouses king or queen.
You should be ashamed of yourselves for falling for this crap. Get on some real news. Stop encouraging racism.
UPDATE: Trudy Wright pulled and erased her Facebook account. Clearly this is a strong argument that she knew that what she had written was seriously racist and narcissistically improper else she would have left it.
Get over yourselves people. I have lived here all my life and I can tell you it’s Democratic and a very racist most of the existence until now. Quit trying to make it a race thing and get him fired before he gets in. Next you will think he’s in with Russia!
Elect a man of respect,honor and a history of service for CC no matter what color he his. Are we ever going to move out of the dark, racially inspired days? My daddy started the rescue squad in this town but Reese Faulkner stole that title from him. Do you see me rioting the streets for justice for my daddy’s name and achievements? No because we know what he did and so does Mr Faulkner!
Vote Carlton Sallie 2018 sheriff
Hell no I wouldn’t vote for that POS if he was the only one on the ballot.
What fantasy land are you living in to even for one second think you’re even worthy to udder his name?
Let her husband say something because to me a lot of times we cannot control our own partners what they say or do….and not nessesarily he agrees with her.
I am not a racist by any means but can surely tell you it would not have been tolerated if the situation would have been reversed – equality is what is being preached; so let’s make so it’s for all.
OMFG!!! It’s a joke lighten up…making fun of the dumbass Marquis in England…I think it’s hilarious!!!
Mmm…. she is so high and mighty, funny that neither her or king has taken care of his “outside child” who is an 18 year old freshman in college ?? js
