Marion Barry complains of Asian-owned 'dirty' shops after winning DC primary

Published April 05, 2012 | FoxNews.com

Former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry is once again attracting the wrong kind of attention, after he used his election-night victory speech to decry Asian-owned stores.

"We've got to do something about these Asians coming in, opening up businesses -- those dirty shops," Barry said Tuesday night, after winning the Democratic primary for the city's Ward 8 seat and effectively securing a third council term.

Barry went on to say: "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."

Wooooooo, Barry, Barry, Barry.

You should get down on your knees every night and thank Da Lord you weren't born a Republican.

Black people can be racists. They can’t commit hate crimes either.

Just affirmation that certain parts (and maybe DC in its entirety) are a cesspool, to see this guy re-elected in any position.

Is there any law at all which keeps blacks from opening businesses in DC? Regulations which give preferential treatment to Asians over blacks? Or is it a cultural issue, in which case Barry should be holding up a mirror to his own culture rather than pointing a finger at Asians.

The real question is whether Marion Barry's brain is messed up by too much crack or not enough of it today.

What primary? This diphit that the world watched trying buy cocaine won a primary? Recently? That’s it. That’s the last sign. Hold on to your hats, sports fans. We’re going over the falls.

"We've got to do something about these Asians coming in, opening up businesses -- those dirty shops."

That dirt is the seed corn which, when fertilized with hard work, becomes the American dream. I wouldn't expect a politician like Marion Berry to understand that.

And you think those snow-crab fisherman in Alaska have a dangerous job.

How many Asians store-owners have been shot or killed in their Black neighborhoodies?

I lived in DC in the late 80’s, when Barry had his first public issues with Cocaine, whores, and kickbacks.

I still remember the video of him, totally high, pawing at some woman saying “c’mon baby!” (I do the exact same voice and routine with my wife when I want to annoy her!)

I never overestimated the local population of DC, but even then, was totally surprised that Barry was practically made a hero, and still has a political life 25 years later.

yes but the idea of looting and buring a Korean Grocer was quickly abandoned when they figured out they had shotguns and were willing to use them to protect their shops

The asian market stores were the few remaining intact after the riots came (curiously on the same day the welfare checks arrived)

I believe that's a result of what they call "keepin' it real."

I've notived that a certain number of people in the african american community have not exactly been acquitting themselves well since BO became president.

I wonder if there's a connection?

I’m starting to think it was because they have IQs of 40 because their crack ho parent didn’t follow the liberal plans of abortion—but then that wouldn’t have given them government freebies and the ability to go to failing DC schools.

No, there's no law that keeps blacks from opening businesses but that's not the problem; the problem is there's no law that takes the Asian businesses away from the Asians and gives them to the blacks. Comprende?

Barry is simply expressing the progressive view of small business - Obama says the same thing in a more polished way.

That’s what the Nazis did. Got rid of Jewish store owners and put good Aryans in their place.

Since I know from experience what DC residents are like, I understand how Barry keeps getting elected.

DC is a cesspool and Barry is an excellent representative for the population of DC (federal work force).

Just another example of sheer stupidity. Like grocery stores in the ghetto which get looted or shoplifted until they close their doors, then the denizens of said ghetto cry about the “food desert”.

I’ve noticed too. Yes there’s a connection, “my people” Holder made it so clear that even those with an IQ of 70 could understand.

Because running a small store is REAL WORK!

I have an Indian friend who looked into it. He figured out that if he busted his tail for an entire year, working 80-90 hours per week, and risking having a gun shoved in his face every day, he might clear 50 grand at the end of the year.

Actually they know the neighborhood and know better than to do it.
