De Blasio Pulls Race Card To Defend Wife Chirlane McCray’s Administrative Role

4

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio pulled the race card to defend wife Chirlane McCray’s prominent role in his administration on everything from the city’s coronavirus response to slashing the NYPD’s budget.

“There have been critics from the beginning,” de Blasio said during his daily briefing Thursday when asked about concerns that he’s crediting her with the decision to shift money from cops to youth services to boost her future political career. “I don’t know if they’re uncomfortable because she’s a woman or an African American or an African American woman,” he said.

McCray, who was at the briefing trumpeting her new plan to help mom-and-pop restaurants in minority communities recover from the coronavirus pandemic, said she actually doesn’t enjoy the public platform.

“I’m not someone who thrives in the limelight. I don’t, like, need the attention of both being in front of the cameras. In fact, it’s very difficult for me,” she said. “I do what I do because I care about people. I care deeply about these brown and black communities that have been affected disproportionately by the COVID-19 virus,” McCray said. Read more at the NY Post.

  1. The critics is because she should first return the $850 million she “lost” from the last project she was in charge of before she’ll be given more of our taxpayer’s money.

  2. This stupidity of giving people jobs because of “who” they are instead of “what” they are happens everywhere. If she is qualified for the job, I have no interest in her skin color. Pedigree doesn’t qualify. The same problem exists in our community.
