Seriously, DMV’s “Mayor for life” is about to be deposed by the entire Asian community if he keeps running his mouth. This time however, the Filipino nurses are apparently an issue.
Earlier this month at his victory party for the Democratic nomination for the D.C. Council’s Ward 8 seat, Barry complained about “dirty” Asian businesses — comments that were harshly rebuked by city and business leaders.
After standing his ground on his comments, Barry later clarified his remarks, saying they were “painted with a brush that was too narrow.”
According to the Washington Examiner-during a D.C. Council hearing on Monday- Barry, made some comments that singled out people from the Philippines who work in D.C. hospitals:
“In fact, it’s so bad, that if you go to the hospital now, you find a number of immigrants who are nurses, particularly from the Philippines,” Barry said, according to the Examiner. “And no offense, but let’s grow our own teachers, let’s grow our own nurses — and so that we don’t have to be scrounging around in our community clinics and other kinds of places — having to hire people from somewhere else.”
Was the former Mayor merely stating that the resources and capital to recruit workers from abroad could be redirected to educate our own human capital within the members of our communities? The Filipino people are perhaps not the subject as much as “growing our own nurses”.
What is absolutely certain is that Mr. Barry must work on semantics, political correctness and just saying what needs to be said without all of the racially charged ‘darts’.
