Marion Barry criticizes hospitals for hiring Filipina nurses
The Washington Examiner ^ | April 23, 2012 | Lisa Gartner

Ward 8 Councilman Marion Barry made comments Monday about Filipina nurses who work in District hospitals, just weeks after Barry told his supporters that Asian businesses "ought to go."

At a hearing, Barry told the president and board members of the University of the District of Columbia that the school should be supplying D.C. residents to serve in the "lucrative" posts of nurses and teachers.

But that was not the case, Barry said.

"In fact, it's so bad, that if you go to the hospital now, you find a number of immigrants who are nurses, particularly from the Philippines," Barry said. "And no offense, but let's grow our own teachers, let's grow our own nurses -- and so that we don't have to be scrounging around in our community clinics and other kinds of places -- having to hire people from somewhere else."

Barry did not respond to phone calls on Monday evening, and his voicemail inbox was full and not accepting messages.

" "And no offense, but let's grow our own teachers, let's grow our own nurses"

But in order to do that they have to go to school and learn math and science- and that would be "actin' white"

can't be havin' that

So, Marion, do you know of another demographic that is qualified and willing to do the work?

Yes, TWO qualifications above - qualified AND willing. Not affirmative actioned in and surly.

Of course these comments were made between hits of his crack pipe.

Message to the former Mayor:Hey,Crackhead,there's a serious shortage of nurses in this country so,basically,it's either Filipino nurses or no nurses at all.

One thing is for certain: Marion Barry truly reflects the values, attitudes and criminal history of his constituents. There is no doubt about that. I hope he accomplishes everything he hopes for for his Ward: black-only-run and staffed hospitals, black-only-owned and operated stores, scaled back MPD presence, and a rock in every pot.

I saw the clip and this is unfair. He was encouraging more local nurses, not saying anything racist about Filipina nurses.

We have our own “Marion Barry” here in Norfolk, VA. His name is Paul Riddick. He’s recently been under investigation for failure to pay taxes (I think employees’ withholding) for a number of years. He’s one big crook, but his Ward keeps reelecting him.

Barry apologized, but maintained "that there are a number of the Asian-owned, neighborhood stores and carry-outs in Ward 8 that only sell highly caloric food and that, unlike some other Asian businessmen in Ward 8, don't reach out to neighborhood groups, make financial contributions to the neighborhood, or help young people in the neighborhood improve their quality of life."

Looks like the Asian businessmen are not in the habit of"contributing" to Barrys "campaign" funds.

That MF Barry will be throwing a conniption fit when he hears about LuLu Campbell of Macon Georgia.

FTA “...said Campbell, her Filipino accent thick even after living the past 40 years in the United States. “I was looking for my phone.”

Long article but every line is a gem.
