(CHICAGO-Huffington Post)

Reverend James Meeks, a Chicago reverend and candidate for mayor was discussing affirmative action on a Chicago radio station, and said that he believed “minority” contracts should go to African-Americans and not other minorities. The Huffington Post reports:

“I think that the word ‘minority,’ from our standpoint, should mean African-American,” Meeks said, as reported by FOX Chicago. “I don’t think women, Asians and Hispanics should be able to use that title. That’s why our numbers cannot improve, because we use women, Asians and Hispanics, who are not people of color, who are not people who have been discriminated against.”
