Marion Barry (D-Ward 8) stepped up his campaign to mend relations with the Korean and Filipino community for disparaging comments he made, noting that the U.S. has “had racial tensions since it was founded” and may have put his foot in his mouth again saying: “The Irish caught hell, the Jews caught hell, the Polacks caught hell.”
Um, Polacks? Isn’t that a derogatory name for Poles? Barry denied using the term “Polacks” when he was first asked about putting his foot in his mouth. He then retracted it saying, “I meant Poles.” Could someone please tell Marion Barry to STFU? Why do the people in his district continue to elect this fool?
