Err...Senate Staffers Shouldn't Mock Us

Monday, February 05, 2018

Well - this is what happens when you mock multiple groups on your Insta:

“The staffer’s photos are unfortunate and disappointing,” said Jo-Ann Yoo, executive director of the non-profit Asian American Federation. “I hope that he has matured and understands why these posts are harmful, and he will evolve into a more thoughtful leader.”

Yoo said she spoke with Benjamin, who “pledged to work with AAF to make this a teachable moment for all our young people.”

Assemblyman Ron Kim (D-Queens) attacked the posts as “immature” and “insensitive.”

“We’ll try to work together in making sure that there’s no misunderstanding between the two communities — Asian-American and African-American — and that our staff members don’t reflect the wrong type of values,” Kim said.

Just remember that you don't have to just be White to not like us.

I'll get that ladder now.
