Ypsilanti Mayor Beth Bashert suggested recently that she had no choice but to support the reappointment of a black man to the city’s Human Relations Commission — despite absentee issues.

The color of his skin, not his performance was the key factor, Bashert indicated.

“Since I will be crucified if I vote against any black person on a commission, I’m going to vote yes,” Bashert said during a discussion on whether to reappoint Ka’Ron Gaines to the HRC at a June 16 public meeting on Zoom.

The comment drew immediate criticism.

Her colleagues said Bashert’s assertion wasn’t true, and said she needed to vote based on qualifications. Some asked for an apology, describing the comment as racist.

The mayor did not apologize after three council members criticized her comment, which led to a remark from Mayor Pro-Tem Lois Richardson.

“I said at the beginning of the meeting that we have a responsibility to call out racism when we see it and all of that is a very explicit display of racism,” Richardson said.

Her colleagues said Bashert’s assertion wasn’t true

Yes it is true. That's the goal. To replace white people in positions of power in government and private businesses with black people.

There is no such thing as racism when it is used purely as a weapon.

I lived in Ypsilanti for 3 years. It was a lost cause then, and I moved out 30 years ago.

Regardless of qualifications.

That’s what Bashert did, Einstein.

“Since I will be crucified if I vote against any black person on a commission, I’m going to vote yes,” Bashert said

"How dare she say such a thing! Let's crucify her for that!"

Perceptive and wise.

Plus I wish there had been a barf alert before the picture of that Witch Whitmer. Just stopping off on the way to tighter screws applied to personal freedoms. Not much time for photo-ops. New extensions through July 16 for some prohibitions as of yesterday.

Whitmer: "Isn't Trump out of there yet? Well, no jobs, economy or freedom for you lousy Deplorables."
