Pam Key, Breitbart, March 27, 2024

Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that critics calling him a “DEI mayor” do not “have the courage to say the N-word.”

Discussing the Baltimore bridge collapse, host Joy Reid said, “The most idiotic and racist theories had to do with their newest bogeyman, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion DEI. A Republican congressional candidate in Florida tweeted that, ‘DEI did this.’ {snip}”

When asked to respond, Scott said, “I know and we know and you know very well that black men and young black men in particular have been the bogeyman for those who are racist and think that only straight, wealthy white men should have a say in anything. {snip} We know what they want to say but they don’t have the courage to say the N-word. {snip}”
