From MetroTimes in Detroit:

More than a dozen community groups have called on Rep. Bettie Cook Scott (D-Detroit) to apologize for a series of racial slurs sources say she used to describe her primary election opponent, Rep. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit).
Scott is alleged to have referred to Chang as “ching-chang”
It’s important to be sensitive to the gender of your racial slurs
and “the ching-chong” to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday’s election. She’s also said to have called one of Chang’s campaign volunteers an “immigrant,” saying “you don’t belong here” and “I want you out of my country.”
Chang and Scott were running in the Democratic primary for state Sen. District 1. Chang won the election with 49 percent of the vote; Scott came in third with 11 percent of the vote. …
The various off-color remarks were heard by multiple people connected with Chang, including Chang’s husband, who spoke with Metro Times. Sean Gray says after overhearing Cook disparage Chang outside a precinct on the east side of Detroit, “I … asked her not to speak about my wife in that manner. At that time she said to the voter that ‘these immigrants from China are coming over and taking our community from us.’ Further, she said it ‘disgusts her seeing black people holding signs for these Asians and not supporting their own people.’”
Gray, who is black, says Scott then went on to call him a “fool” for marrying Chang.
‘When you hear someone that’s a minority and a woman using slurs against another minority that’s a woman, it’s just mind boggling.’
America’s ever more diverse future will boggle more than a few minds.
Why won’t somebody put a white blanket over her head, like at Oberlin, in 2013, and give everybody in Detroit a White Male hate figure to unify against?
