The pardonees were various murderers who worked in and around the governor's mansion.
You wouldn't expect Boss Hawg to allow Black murderers to be trustees, would you?

Of 242 Republican members of the House of Representatives, two are black.

Of 221 prisoners pardoned by Republican Haley Barbour, eight are black.

No wonder Boss Hogg didn’t run for president – he’s way out of touch with his party’s base, what with him being so overly deferential to the coloreds and all.
