marion berry asian businesses ought to goOnce again, Marion Barry is in the headlines for all of the wrong reasons. This time, the former four-time D.C. mayor was caught race-baiting on camera.

The Washington Post reports that Barry told his supporters that Asian businesses  should leave his ward during a celebration party for his landslide in the Democratic primary race for the D.C. Council seat on Tuesday.

Here is the exact quote:

“We’ve got to do something about these Asians coming in, opening up businesses, those dirty shops. They ought to go, I’ll just say that right now, you know. But we need African-American businesspeople to be able to take their places, too.”

Though calls for an immediate apology came soon as the story on his comments broke, Barry has yet to say sorry. And it doesn’t appear that he will:

Rather, he said, in an interview, he suggested his critics “get to know Marion Barry and his stellar record on civil rights.””I’ve spent the last 50 years of my life fighting for justice and equality of all people,” he said. “Those five people don’t know Marion Barry at all. They know my name; they don’t know my record.”

It seems like a clear case of race-baiting on Barry’s part. But it is doubtful that his comments will end his career. If the crack pipe or time in the slammer couldn’t keep him down, a few racist statements aren’t likely to tank him, either.

Check out the rest of the story and video of Barry making his comments here.
