Former NY GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Refers To ‘Damn Asians’
Carl Paladino, a former Republican New York candidate for governor, an elected board member of Buffalo Public Schools, doesn’t like that Asians are among those subsidized for education.
In video obtained by WGRZ-TV, Paladino told a small group of reporters that the state must “straighten out our college education system so that our kids can go to school.”
“Instead of some damn Asians coming in here and going to school. I don’t understand that. We can subsidize Asians to come here, and we don’t let our own kids get educated. Is that why we formed a state university system? I don’t think so.”
Within days, Paladino apologized in The Buffalo News for the “coarseness” of his remark (when approached by WGRZ-TV on Wednesday, he refused to answer questions, screamed expletives and stormed away from our camera…The next day, when contacted by WGRZ-TV on the phone, he erupted into another profanity-laced tirade and then hung up the phone).
