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.”

He continued:

“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).

    Did I say that? No, I don’t think so. Are you sure you heard me correctly?

    One of the major barriers to more young people attending college is the high cost of a college education today. Of course, this is not something Paladino would want to address.
