    METRO TIMES:
    More than a dozen community groups have called on Rep. Bettie Cook Scott (D-Detroit) to apologize for a series of racial slurs sources say she used to describe her primary election opponent, Rep. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit).

    Scott is alleged to have referred to Chang as “ching-chang” and “the ching-chong” to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday’s election. She’s also said to have called one of Chang’s campaign volunteers an “immigrant,” saying “you don’t belong here” and “I want you out of my country.”

    Chang and Scott were running in the Democratic primary for state Sen. District 1. Chang won the election with 49 percent of the vote; Scott came in third with 11 percent of the vote.

    “These comments are offensive to all Asian-Americans,” Chang tells Metro Times. “It isn’t about me. It’s about an elected official disrespecting entire populations, whether they be Asian-American, immigrant, or residents of Sen. District 1 or [Cook’s] own current house district.”

    Another small example of America's big failing. Picking at all these little wounds does not help the society to heal.
    Racists are deluded individuals. The color of the 'racist' doesn't matter. The point is that the surrounding community not accept the sickness.
    How can people dwell in an illusion if all around them demonstrate otherwise?

    and yet our Potus never apologizes, must be where she got this from. The Dems hold people to higher standards though.

    Dems are full of hypocrisy and only say and do what's gaining them political points.

    It won't matter, the black community would still vote for her.

    funny thing is, she didn't need to say that, she knows all the black people will vote for her, all the white dems can't vote for the Asian since she looks not black, but she did it anyway.
