AL: Pol under fire for using racial slur

Source: Fox News

“A [w]hite city leader captured on video using a racial slur toward [b]lack 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 n-word on Monday night reflected something the city’s [b]lack mayor, Wayman Newton, had said during an earlier private meeting. Standing up from his council seat during a public session and referring to a [b]lack female council member, Veronica Freeman, Bryant asked: ‘Do we have a house (n-word) in here?’ Some in the audience gasped at his use of the phrase, which was broadcast on Facebook Live, and Freeman left crying, but Bryant was unapologetic.” (07/21/21)
