I don't have to guess what would happen if a White politician said something like this.

Yes, get the Asians out so the Africans can come in...
I can only imagine the media explosion if it was a white guy replacing the word African American's with Caucasians.
Racism is not exclusive to any one race. This guy is no different than some white power idiot screaming for white only businesses.
However, I must say I do not like the fact that the Canadian governement practically gives away working businesses to Asians mostly to promote immigration than offering the same opportunity to an ALREADY Canadian resident without a job that could easily take care of a little convenience store.
“I think you know what I stand for,” he said, according to the local outlet. “And that is everybody having an equal opportunity in the District of Columbia.”
The comments go counter to Barry’s claim on his D.C. Councilmember biography, that he stands for “always advocating for economic inclusion - on behalf of African Americans, women, Hispanics, Asians and Pacific Islanders.” Read more: www.politico.com...

I don't know how much credit I would assign a former(?) crack head.
This is what being a Democrat is all about,,, Double Talk.
Hey now, Dems do not own, nor did they create a Double Talk handbook. Ever heard of Fox news or Frank Luntz?

It was the people. Generally, I find asian workers and owners to be much more uptight or unfriendly even. I'm not racist at all, just notice it. I think that Barry isn't being racist, he's just opening a can of worms.
Imagine walking into a minimart and the cashier is behind a wall of bulletproof glass. How do you feel? Does it make you feel that maybe they think you got a gun or a criminal motive hidden inside?
I've seen some examples of asian stores online that're from asian countries. Generally, they're small and lots and ltos of things are behind plexiglass or glass or etc. Their society is very defensive against shoplifting. But ther's an aura that says "Hey, I don't trust you. You could be a shoplifter or a robber."
Sio I think Barry is expressing his opinion in a very unclever and risky way/. I think our society as a whole is itself becoming too uptight about these kinds of things. I mean, like a nanny state or something.edit on 5-4-2012 by jonnywhite because: (no reason given)

OK, You read the title,,, Now let me ask you,,, Is this the actions of the Loving, Caring For All Races Democrats?
I'm Asian as many of you know, I'm Chinese, Married to an American and Immigrated to America Legally and I'm Now An Proud American Citizen.
How Proud of America can you be when you have a Councilman, who was a Mayor, Talking Trash about another race and promoting their race over an other?
What did the Asian Race Ever Do To Him? Maybe it's because we are better workers and care that our children are good students and have no desire to ever live off the Tax Payers,,,,, What You think?
We got to do something about these Asians coming in and opening up businesses and dirty shops,” Barry said in remarks on Tuesday night first reported by WRC-TV. “They ought to go. I’m going to say that right now. But we need African-American businesspeople to be able to take their places, too.”
He said and I quote:
But we need African-American businesspeople to be able to take their places, too.”
Well Tell your African-American Business People to Open a business. The African-American Business man or woman does not want to open a business in that area, It's The Asians Fault?
The Idiot next said this:You Just Did! This is what being a Democrat is all about,,, Double Talk.
"I'm not ever going to condemn a group of people," Barry told reporters gathered in his Wilson Building office Thursday. "My history is complete. It's an excellent history with the Asian community."
Now You read the above statement from the D C Councilman,,, Now Read This!
"I'm not going to allow a group of people to exploit people in Ward 8," Barry said.
You're Not,,,, Why because,,,,, Of What?
He said he wants Asian businesses to operate in the area but he wants them to "come right."
What The He** Does Come RightMean?
What are you saying,,,, Be Legal Immigrates and Not Illegal,,,,, Speck English?
You're a Hypocrite,,, Yes You Are and I think You're a Racist Democrat P. O. S.!
I wanted to add this from your Democrat Councilman:
“We got to do something about these Asians coming in and opening up businesses and dirty shops,” Barry said on Tuesday night, according to video posted by WRC-TV/NBC4. “They ought to go. I’m going to say that right now. But we need African-American businesspeople to be able to take their places, too.” Read more: www.politico.com...

Ever heard of deny ignorance?
And your just generalizing everyone(which by the way makes you just as bad as this guy) on the actions of one crack head.
