“Every day in the Police Department, I kicked those crackers’ ass,” he says in the video during a private event held by the Harlem Business Alliance several months before he launched his mayoral campaign.
Adams joked in the video that he would rather “grow a beard, smoke some weed, and leave this stuff alone” instead of running for mayor. He also criticized his early detractors and told them, “well, negro, you run. You run. Go raise the seven million dollars.”
The video was shot and uploaded by Thomas Lopez-Pierre, an activist for the communist revolutionary movement Black Lives Matter. He defended Adams’s racially-charged diatribe, telling New York Daily News, “This is how Black people talk. To us, it was family. We were having a conversation with family.”
So, it’s OK when leftists are racist.
“I definitely apologize,” Adams said after the video came to light. “Inappropriate, inappropriate comments, should not have been used. Someone asked me a question using that comment and playing on that word. I responded in that comment, but clearly these comments should not have been used, and I apologize not only to those who heard it, but to New Yorkers because they should expect more from me.”
Actually, New Yorkers can expect very little from Adams, because his progressive policies are going to exacerbate the surging crime in his city.
