Damon K. Jones, Publisher of Black Westchester, fearlessly confronts attempts to discredit him while speaking truth to power. Despite facing dismissal, discrediting, demonization, and false accusations, Jones remains steadfast in his commitment to truth-telling, speaking truth to power, and informing the people on how politics rule our everyday lives.
In a recent email exchange, Damon K. Jones, the Publisher of Black Westchester, found himself taken aback by accusations of misogyny levied against him by Tim James, the Democratic Chairman of the White Plains Democratic Party. Jones, known for his outspoken advocacy and dedication to his community, responded firmly to these allegations.
Jones began by extending a direct invitation to Tim James to appear on his show, expressing a desire to address the rumors circulating about him. “I’ve heard many rumors that you have been talking about me in email threads,” Jones stated. “So I’m personally inviting you to come on the show.”
Asserting his confusion over the accusations, Jones highlighted his longstanding commitment to women, emphasizing his loving relationships with his wife and granddaughters. “I’m loved by women all over for my character and integrity,” he declared. “You have the damn nerve to call me something and you don’t even know me.”
Challenging James to substantiate his claims, Jones demanded proof of any alleged misogynistic behavior. “If you’re going to make a statement like that, we’re demanding that you show proof of what it is that you say,” Jones asserted. “You better have the receipts.”
Furthermore, Jones pointedly addressed issues within the White Plains Democratic Party, questioning the lack of diversity in their political slate and referencing past controversies involving racial slurs. “Didn’t the White Plains Democratic Party run an all-white slate for the council last year?” Jones questioned. “And you got the nerve to call me a misogynist?”
Throughout his response, Jones emphasized his commitment to honesty and transparency, inviting James to engage in an open dialogue rather than resorting to anonymous accusations. “I invite you on the show so we can have an honest conversation,” Jones stated. “Say what you have to say to the person and not be sending blank emails out about them.”

In closing, Jones made it clear that he would not tolerate baseless attacks on his character and reputation. “I’m waiting for the other emails because I just might sue them,” he warned. “I’m just waiting for the other emails, and I just might sue you for defamation.”
