The mayor of Charlottesville, Virginia, posted a shockingly graphic poem on social media Wednesday, where she said the city "rapes you" and continued to slam the place she represents as racist and "void of a moral compass."
What are the details?
Democratic Mayor Nikuyah Walker's poem read:
Charlottesville: The beautiful-ugly it is. It rapes you, comforts you in its c** stained sheet and tells you to keep its secrets."

Walker's post was deleted by Facebook, who purportedly explained the message violates its "standards on adult sexual exploitation," so she posted a screenshot of her work on Twitter, and then rewrote it in a lengthier version for all to see.
In her follow-up post, Walker wrote:
"Is this better? I'm asking the person who reported my short poem to FB.
Charlottesville: The beautiful-ugly it is. It lynched you, hung the noose at city hall and pressed the souvenir that was once your finger against its lips. It covers your death with its good intentions. It is a place where white women with Black kids collects signature (sic) for a white man who questions whether a black woman understands white supremacy. It is destructively world class. White people say that it is a place where gentrification started with the election of a Black women (sic) in 2017 and because of white power, a lie becomes #facts. Its daily practice is that of separating you from your soul. Charlottesville is void of a moral compass. It's as if good ole tj is still cleverly using his whip to whip the current inhabitants into submissiveness. Charlottesville rapes you of your breaths. It suffocates your hopes and dreams. It liberates you by conveniently redefining liberation. It progressively chants while it conservatively acts. Charlottesville is anchored in white supremacy and rooted in racism. Charlottesville rapes you and covers you in sullied sheets."

Walker's mention of "tj" appears to be a reference to late President Thomas Jefferson, whose famous Monticello home is outside the city.
In another post shared Wednesday, the mayor wrote, "Thomas Jefferson raped Sally Hemmings. He 'owned' and raped her. How repulsed do you think she use (sic) to be as she laundered his fluids and scent out of the linens that he raped her on?"
Walker did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment on her posts.
The Washington Examiner reported that "Walker was elected mayor of Charlottesville in 2017, the first black woman to hold the office, and she often spoke out on the campaign trail against the 2017 Unite the Right rally that turned violent when a suspected white supremacist drove his car into a crowd, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer."
