Black NY City Council Candidate Slurs Jews

Black NY City Council Candidate Slurs Jews

Thomas Lopez-Pierre, an African-American candidate for a seat on the City Council in New York City’s 7th Council District said he was opposed to the candidacy of his Jewish opponent, Mark Levine, whom he called a “White/Jewish candidate” who was trying “to sneak into office like a thief in the night.”

When confronted by the Jewish Week, Lopez-Pierre said:

I don’t hate Jews; I love black people. I love political empowerment. … A black person has represented the district for many years, and we don’t want to see the black and Latino caucus be minus one. I don’t want a councilman that represents all the people; I want a councilman who represents my community …”They said those Jews are gonna lynch you … But because I work for myself, I don’t have to answer to anyone…

When he was asked why he resorted to racial slurs rather that engage on the issues, Lopez-Pierre said. “So that the media would call me and I could get the message out.”
