Video Surfaces Showing NYC Mayor Using Racial Slur

A video from 2019 shows New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) bragging about a better police officer than his “cracker” colleagues in the New York Police Department.

Adams’ comments came during a private event in Harlem on Dec. 13, 2019.

“Every day in the Police Department, I kicked those crackers’ ass,” Adams says in the video.

“Man, I was unbelievable in the Police Department with 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement,” he continued, referring to a police advocacy group he co-founded in the 1990s. “Became a sergeant, a lieutenant, and a captain. You know the story — some people all of a sudden trying to reinvent me. But the reality is what I was then is who I am now.”

Adams went on to discuss his forthcoming campaign for mayor, joking that he would rather “grow a beard, smoke some weed and leave this stuff alone. You hear me?”

“The people who say, ‘Where’s our real Black leaders?’ They’re going to say, ‘Who’s Eric? Why does Eric think he should be mayor?’ Well, Negro, you run, you run. Go raise the $7 million,” he said. “Let me tell you something, man. They are lining up — ‘Eric can’t be mayor.’ In the corners of the city, they are lining up. They know me. They know what I’m about, and they know what I’m going to do as the mayor of the City of New York. Listen, we’re not going to play this game.”

Adams apologized for his remarks on Friday.

“I definitely apologize. Inappropriate, inappropriate comments, should not have been used,” Adams said.

“Someone asked me a question using that comment and playing on that word. I responded in that comment, but clearly these comments should not have been used, and I apologize not only to those who heard it, but to New Yorkers because they should expect more from me.”

    Don’t worry mayor, nobody will
    hold you accountable because
    you are black. There’s nothing more disgusting than a racist bigot who always complains about racism and bigotry., just ask the folks on the View.

    C’mon man! Everyone knows that Blacks cannot be racists. Well, with the exception of a misguided Republican Black.

    ‘I was unbelievable’. No just a big headed jerk who ‘thinks he is special’ what a conceited creep!

      They always get by with calling white people names but we’re white supremist if we call them anything. I’m tired of all this crap. He thinks because he’s blacked he can say or do whatever. I can only imagine how he’s going to treat white people while he’s mayor. And they won’t be aloud to do anything about it.
