If there’s rules then I’d like to see them changed so that the next time a citizen makes a racist comment they get called out. In my opinion, Bob’s talk was uncomfortable and made me cringe a couple times, but in comparison to some of the other things that I’ve heard from people standing at that podium, I’m not quite sure it rises to the standard of a public reprimand. As far as I know, this is the third instance of this happening since October.
- The Hispanic lady that tells the board to kiss her a$$ to which John wants her deleted from future broadcasts.
- Maureen Caddigan says ‘Can someone stop that woman from coming here?’ in response to Donna Widawski’s.
- And now Bob Wills
Again, none of these incidents bother me more than these incidents which stand out in my mind.
- The woman who said she doesn’t like it when a Hispanic can own homes and she can’t.[I mean what is that about? Let’s do an exercise, re-read the previous sentence and substitute Black for Hispanic. Obviously offensive. Do people not get it?
- Mattes’ statement – It is scary, and she wouldn’t be surprised, if these guys [daylaborers] came across the road & jumped a car and hijacked it.[Okay, worse case scenario, you have a group of men(Hispanic) loitering, looking for work, most likely in a state of mixed immigration status.]
- Another lady who said she felt uncomfortable when the daylaborers nodded their heads at her.[Reminds me of Obama’s grandmother admitting she felt uncomfortable with Black men.]
