    No public official should ever say anything like that, period. Bigotry comes in all shapes, sizes and colors, and this guy is a good example of that fact. If I were a black American, I'd be upset to know that I and my peers are being publicly "represented" by the likes of Barry, Sharpton, Jackson, etc. We need American businesses, period. Ethnic origin be damned.

    Marion Barry has been a source of amusement and entertainment for years in the Wash DC area. I do not believe that there is anyone who takes him seriously.

    How this man was ever even elected, after all his past criminal acts, is itself beyond comprehension. This latest indicator of his moral fiber, just puts the final decoration on the cake.

    Get rid of him already. He was a crack addicted mayor years ago and now he's been re-elected as a councilman? What is wrong with the people in DC, our nation's capitol? And here he goes again, agitating, stirring up conflict, and he could possible incite to riot. He's got to stop shooting off his mouth arbitrarily. Like shop owner Mr. Cho said, he could have opened up a positive dialogue instead. Since he chose the rode that was wider (easier and more acceptable to his constituents), I'm sure that "those Asians" want nothing to do with him. How dare he? Let me say something. I know quite a few Asians and I've worked for some. Many belong to business organizations. These organizations network with other groups and many times, that is how they get loans and investors to back their businesses. This is not something that others couldn't do if they wanted to. It takes effort, organization and resolve. Don't knock them for this. The community could learn from them. They are also great about finding a niche and filling it because they have sure done this in our area and we're not complaining. Marion Barry, it's time for you to retire and stop making a mockery of Washington, D.C. We should be able to be proud of our nation's capitol.

    Not only should he be fired for being a racist a**hole, but, also, for being a complete screw-up as well as a drug addict. Seriously, how is this clown still relevant?

    Only because, you know...after all the cocaine snorting hooker spending prosecution ridiculousness that he went through and overcame to WIN a reelection there...I don't know...this appears to be the mayor these people want.

    His words should be printed on T-Shirts and sold on Ebay to benefit the Summer picnic of the KKK, he should be lofted onto a pole and carried through the streets of Sanford, given a new crack pipe for his efforts and win a date with White Racist Crack Ho... He should be recognized as a brilliant beacon declaring in many different ways that people of all races are racists in their own very special way...
