Nury Martinez, the former president of the Los Angeles City Council, who stepped down this week from that role after the publication of a 2021 recording that captured her making racist remarks, resigned from the council Wednesday.
https://au.news.yahoo.com/nury-martinez ... 22938.html

On a leaked recording published Sunday by the Los Angeles Times, Martinez, a Latina, is heard referring to the Black son of white councilman Mike Bonin as a “changuito,” a Spanish term meaning little monkey, and telling council members Gil Cedillo and Kevin de León, and Ron Herrera, president of the L.A. County Federation of Labor, all of whom are Latino, that he “needs a beatdown.”

Just hours after the recording was published by the Times, Martinez swiftly issued an apology and resigned as president, but she resisted calls to step down from the council altogether, even as pressure swiftly mounted from all corners of the political world to force her out.

Not just her....what about the other three "Changuitos". I can't believe they can show their faces in the LA council without getting their teeth knocked out??

You have strange ideas about interpersonal relations.

Goes to show you, the idiocy of racism isn't restricted to any particular ethnicity.

There's even racism within races. There are white people who hate redheads aka gingers (ginger being a pejorative). There are Chinese people who despise Japanese people and vice versa. Black people dislike black people who are darker and vice versa. There are Cubans who dislike Mexicans. People from the north dislike rednecks. People from the south dislike yankees. Democrats hate orange people. The list goes on and on. Maybe someday we'll figure out how to live with the fact that everyone doesn't love everyone.

White people who worship orange people can hate those who do not.

Is that just plain old right v left hate or a different flavour?

I wasn't talking about that. I just tossed in orange as a joke. I should have known better.
