CITIZEN MEDIA EXCLUSIVE!!! TWO INDEPENDENCE, MO COUNCIL MEMBERS APOLOGIZE AFTER 'MIDDLE EASTERNS' COMMENT SPARKS MORE PROTEST!!!
In a recent Independence, MO council session, Councilman Curt Dougherty made a horrifically insensitive and bigoted remark about "Middle Easterns" who owned shops and were willing to "sell anything out the back door."
The comment elicited outry across the metro and calls for his resignation.
The councilman still hasn't said very much on the record and hasn't appeared on camera to talk about his remarks.
This week, activists offered statements to the council expressing their disdain for the remarks.
Surprisingly, two Council members offered an apology.
Here's how citizen media viewed the situation . . .
"Racism is a serious problem in Kansas City. Last week an Independence City Council Member was open about is Anti Muslim bigotry with no objection from the City Council while it occurred. The three minute video shows the watered down apology from two City Council Members after an SEIU complaint was read out loud during the meeting."
Take a look . . .
