I think his comment that Jewish, Arab and Korean store owners had “ripped off” black neighborhoods, “selling us stale bread and bad meat and wilted vegetables” was taken out of context

Young was interviewed to explain his comments. He admitted that he had made unkind remarks and apologized. He also resigned his spokesman position for WalMart whom he was defending when he made his racist comments. Young's racist comments go back decades. When accused of racist comments against whites back in the 1970s, his only response was that his grandfather was white so how could he hate whites. I heard the statement myself and he obviously dodged the accusation by not directly denying his original statements.

It's an ugly statue that represents his ugly hateful side.

I tried to put over sarcasm but type does not do it :-) Even Al Blunt-Heavy weight does not like him
