Evidently and unfortunately, Marion Barry is still around. From The Examiner:
Celebrating his victory in the Democratic primary on Tuesday night, Barry spoke up about the prominence of businesses owned by Asians in the District.
“We got to do something about these Asians coming in and opening up businesses and dirty shops,” Barry said in remarks first reported by WRC-TV. “They ought to go. I’m going to say that right now. But we need African-American businesspeople to be able to take their places, too.”
Yes, Barry. Something sure ought to be done about those hard-working, tax-paying immigrants who come here to start a better life for themselves and their families. How dare they try to live the American dream?! How dare they try to exercise their individual rights?!
Barry is as ignorant and hateful as he is stupid. As a politician, he's supposed to be protecting individual rights, not encouraging others to violate them!
There are a lot of wonderful people in this country, but Marion Barry is not one of them. Neither are the imbeciles that voted for him. (I blame the government-run school system.)
