Here's a classic example of stupidity in politics. A black state congressman in California really made an ass of himself when he thought he could
use someone else's mistake for his personal gain. Unfortunately he soon found out the "victim" in this episode was white -- doesn't really help
his claim of racial prejudice. Now, we don't really care about prejudice towards white people, do we now?
The NAACP and other civil rights groups had planned to attend a Capitol news conference Thursday called by Assemblyman Mervyn Dymally, D-Compton, who
was demanding that Riordan step down. Dymally's office abruptly canceled the event, however, after learning that the girl is white.
Dymally, who is African American, was quoted in Thursday's San Jose Mercury News stating that the girl was African American and asking whether
Riordan "would ... have done that to a white girl?"
What a flipping moron. And I thought some elected officials in NY were wastes of air....
