Washington DC Ward 8 Councilman Marion Barry apologizes for ethnic cleansing remark

Washington DC Ward 8 councilman Marion Barry apologizes
for advocating the forcible removal of all asian american businesses
in Ward 8 after his primary win last night. Local african american
leaders were shocked and condemned Barry's anti asian diatribe
which was caught on tape by a local TV station.
Barry made a half hearted apology saying that he really didn't
mean to offend the asian american community and was
only referring to the "bad" asian businesses in Ward 8.

Re: Washington DC Ward 8 Councilman Marion Barry apologizes for ethnic cleansing rema

Obviously a moral supporter of Rodney King.

I also could peg him as a supporter of the rioters after King's assailants were exonerated which contributed to the blacks rioting and taking out their frustrations against the Koreans.

Barry is no different then, from Indonesians thugs who, rather than fighting amongst themselves, choose a target with assets they desire, and then run riot looting and pillaging.

He just admitted that blacks will take out their frustrations at being oppressed by The Man on innocent Asians. This is called the kick-the-dog effect.

I guess he couldn't say any anti-white sentiments because they voted for him last time.

Re: Washington DC Ward 8 Councilman Marion Barry apologizes for ethnic cleansing rema

Recently in the news, Marion Barry reportedly complained to the President of
the Hospital runned by the University of the District Columbia that most if
not all of the nursers were Asian (filipino) and ask why isn't the hospital
hiring african american nurses?


Background:
There is a world wide shortage of nurses - with the USA sucking up most of the global supply of nurses (via bodyshops and headhunters). While the USA has a very restrictive examination/licensing to allow foriegn/H1-B medical physicians, the USA is easy going with licensing to allow foriegn/H1-B nurses. Nursing takes +6 years of school and even after passing the difficult exams to become a Registered Nurse (RN) make a fraction of what a medical physcian or tech might make. In addition, many nurses complain of the long hour and the lower social/professional status they have among medical physicians. Because a signficant percentage of nurses are in the USA via the H1-B Visa program, even the non-asian descent nurses also tend to be H1-B Visa workers as well. The professional retention rate of nursing is very low and some nurses quite from *burn-out.*

Plus Asian flips, especially pinay r hard workers while, from listening to black women complain on twitter, the black woman is oppressed if you don't pay overtime.

I know of Filipino help got in to work at a fastfood joint, a pizza company, cos they can't complain & be lazy like white kids.

Re: Washington DC Ward 8 Councilman Marion Barry apologizes for ethnic cleansing rema

Update News:
=========

Washington DC Ward 8 Councilman Marion Barry holds a private meeting to mend relationship with the Asian American community over two public disparaging anti-asian remarks that he(Barry) made recently. However, Marion Barry removes the news media reporters at this meeting to preclude a public apology and then talks to the Asian American Leaders behind closed doors. Behind closed door news media reporters over hears an African American woman Geraldine Hall who was brought in by Barry to testify how korean american stores were dirty and to justify Barry's previous disparaging anti asian remark about korean stores in ward 8. Reportedly, Barry then tries to make amends by saying "The Irish caught hell, the Jews caught hell, the Polacks caught hell... We want Ward 8 to be the model of diversity.” However, DC Councilman Barry's negative ethnic reference to Poles however was not unnoticed and now he has even more people upset at him.
