Ypsilanti Mayor Beth Bashert suggested recently that she had no choice but to support the reappointment of a black man to the citys 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, Im going to vote yes, Bashert said during a discussion on whether to reappoint KaRon Gaines to the HRC at a June 16 public meeting on Zoom.
The comment drew immediate criticism.
Her colleagues said Basherts assertion wasnt 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.

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.
“Racism” by whom’s definition? The Left’s?
I reject the Left’s definition of Racism.
“I have a dream...that one day my children will not be judged by the content of their character, but by their gender and color of their skin. I have a dream today...”
Looks more like “Pat”.
The pic says a lot. Throwing up in my mouth a bit.
She needs to vote based on qualifications...but she better vote for the black guy or she’s racist.
I lived in Ypsilanti for 3 years. It was a lost cause then, and I moved out 30 years ago.
Yes it is true. That’s the goal. To replace white people in positions of power in government and private businesses with black people.
Regardless of qualifications.
More of a “Pat” than the original “Pat”.
I said at the beginning of the meeting that we have a responsibility to call out racism when we see it”
That’s what Bashert did, Einstein.
More of a Pat than the original Pat.
Wow... the old Pat has been MASSIVELY OUT-PATTED!
"How dare she say such a thing! Let's crucify her for that!"
The gov needs a bra.
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."
And another lib female heard from...ain’t nuthin’ any worse in government than another emotional lib female pushing her emotions into decision-making.
Is she a lessbranium?
