Jason Cohen, Daily Caller, February 16, 2024

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ father testified on Friday that keeping cash is a cultural norm for black people.

Willis testified during a Thursday hearing on whether she should be disqualified from her election interference case against former President Donald Trump over alleged financial benefits she received from special prosecutor Nathan Wade, who she appointed to the case. The embattled district attorney asserted that she used cash stored in her house to reimburse Wade for vacation expenses {snip}


“I’m not trying to be racist, okay? But it’s a black thing,” Willis’ father responded to an inquiry about his daughter keeping cash {snip}

“I was trained and most black folks, they hide cash or they keep cash,” he added. {snip}

He then described an instance where he experienced alleged racism in Massachusetts where someone would not accept his payment until he presented cash.
