Georgia State Rep. Mesha Mainor made headlines when she announced last week that she was leaving the Democratic Party — and in the days since, she has received a virtual tidal wave of hate mail, much of it overtly racist and profane.

Mainor shared some of the emails she’d received — riddled with nasty language and racist epithets — in a series of screenshots on Twitter.

“Dear Democrat, Sorry you feel this way,” Mainor captioned the screenshot of one email.

***WARNING: Extremely graphic language***

I would like to help your retarded black a** by telling you. That saying you would support any candidate picked by the GOP during the primary is retarded. Not only is is retarded you live up to the word n****r by just following blindly. Remember you were a Democrat and “felt abandoned” to become a Republican, and now you’re going to follow blindly like you did with your party. You’re the stain on society that needs to be flushed. I wish you the absolute worst in your political history. You Uncle Tom b****.

“Sorry you feel that way. And thank you to the HUNDREDS sending well wishes,” Mainor captioned another.

***WARNING: Extremely graphic language***

You dumb** aunt Jemima mother f***ing traitor! I will be sure to take a good chunk of my retirement savings, which is substantial, and will donate it to whoever it is that will be running against you, you self-hating black negress b****.

Oh, yo’ll see come 2024 how I will help to make sure you are defeated! Go run in a Republican confederate district that loves self-hating n****rs lie you!

“Dear Democrat, I’m sorry you feel this way. Support for anyone with thoughts of self- harm can be accessed by calling #988,” Mainor captioned one that advised her and all Republicans to kill themselves.

***WARNING: Extremely graphic language***

Convincing conservatives and their dips*** children to commit suicide is the greatest service one can offer humanity.

Another trotted out a series of racist tropes, ordering her to “get back on the plantation” and telling her to stop eating “fried chicken and watermelon with Vernon Jones.”

***WARNING: Extremely graphic language***

“Dear Democrat, I’m sorry you feel this way. I pray everyone has a great Sunday! It’s another day the Lord has made,” Mainor captioned one that was particularly vulgar, suggesting that she deserved to be lynched.

***WARNING: Extremely graphic language***

F*** you c**n, you monkey b****, you wanna be a party traitor and go under Brian Kemp’s whip because he offered you more yams and collards? You are despicable and poplar might serve you well.

Mainor shared several other emails – some making lascivious references and others suggesting that she was better suited to the type of work slaves had done on plantations. In her response to each, Mainor began by saying, “I’m sorry you feel that way …”

In another tweet Mainor noted that her values and principles had not changed in the least. “An ‘R’ next to my name doesn’t change who I am. Priorities: education, public safety, jobs, healthcare, and senior resources,” she said, challenging her critics to watch how she voted going forward before they attacked her.
