Alabama city leader who used n-word says he won't apologize and might run for mayor
LINK

quote:

A White city leader captured on video using a racial slur toward Black people during a council meeting said he won't apologize, and might run for mayor. Others are calling for his resignation.

Tarrant City Council member Tommy Bryant told news outlets his use of the word Monday night reflected something the city's Black mayor, Wayman Newton, had said during an earlier private meeting.

During a public session, Bryant used the slur to refer to a Black female council member, Veronica Freeman. Before the outburst, neighbors asked Bryant about controversial social media posts allegedly made by his wife about race, CBS affiliate WIAT-TV reports.

Where I'm at, people use it and they don't care what color you are.

You mean we can actually say words like the First Amendment gives us the right to do?

There's a meme going around right now that says this exact thing is going to happen. People are so tired of everything being racist that it's going to become an act of defiance to be outwardly racist.

That being said, I can't imagine this guy is going to get far.

Tried reading it several times. Just my opine, but I'm thinking he was trying to point out or repeat in public what he contends the mayor said behind closed doors.

Anyone else pick up on anything like that?

He was quoting the mayor (who is black). But, in the face of accusations of racism probably not the wisest move.

In truth, no...in our reality circa 2021 yes.

That's what it was.

Still, not a great move. There's ways to make that point without making it easy for liberals to call you a racist.

He's doing their job for them.

if he's a democrat, it'll be memory holed and forgotten about

if he's a republican, he might as well plan on moving out of state now
