City council member Tommy Bryant asked fellow city council member Veronica Freeman (who is Black): “Do we have a house n***er in here? Do we? Do we? Would she please stand up?“ during a racist rant at a meeting in Tarrant, Alabama, on July 19.
Bryant claimed he was just repeating what Tarrant Mayor Wayman Newton, the city’s first Black mayor, said about Freeman, reports AL.com.
Bama Politics notes that Bryant has refused to resign and says he plans to run for Mayor.
