Home Live Wire Brooklyn State Senator Calls Colleagues ‘White Supremacists’

NY State Senator Kevin Parker, a Brooklyn Democrat, condemned  his fellow senators as “white supremacists” yesterday. “There’s only one kind of racism that’s functional in the world, and that’s white supremacy,” Parker said during a radio interview yesterday morning. He added, “And that’s what John DeFrancisco and a lot of the Republicans are,” referring to his Senate colleague who a day earlier, during a confirmation hearing, declared that black people were not the only ones to suffer discrimination. Senate Republicans called for Parker to be censured. Meanwhile, he is supposed to face a trial later this year for a felony assault charge. The charge resulted from the Senator allegedly attacking a New York Post photographer. [New York Times] [New York Post]
