STATEMENT FROM THE AFRICAN COMMUNITIES PUBLIC HEALTH COALITION REGARDING THE RECENT RACIST COMMENTS PUBLISHED BY THE LA TIMES
The African Communities Public Health Coalition supports the LA Times and its Editorial Board for their journalistic courage and fortitude in Revealing and Publishing the Racist Comments and diatribe engendered by L.A. City Council President and other representatives of the Council.
These racist comments neither reflect our positive working relationship with The Latino community, nor support the direction and trajectory of our race relations in the entire country as a whole, and in the County of Los Angeles in particular. These racist remarks deter us from the progress we have made thus far in the area of race relations and have no place in our contemporary discussions and epoch and must be strongly discouraged.
