"No, the other Rob Ford"
It is a two way street and equality should apply to everyone, it is not just a matter of certain minority groups claiming to be victims of racism, but everyone should be able to be free of racist jokes and comments and words that make them feel uncomfortable
Wheter it is the use of the "n" word or making the offhanded ethic joke against Polish or Italian or Irish people, it is all racism and causes both hurt and harm.
Allegations have been made against Deputy Chief Rob Ford of the Hartford Police Department that recently in a meeting with a group of his subordinates, he made disparaging remarks against an Italian officer and his Italian heritage, according to sources in attendance that "I don't give a F**K about your Italian Family"
The complaint has now risen to the level of an Internal Affairs Investigation to get to the truth of the matter. Chief Rovella today called for the acting Commander of Internal Affairs to launch an official investigation based on an internal complaint, called an I-file.
Ford apparently knew his actions were wrong and a few days after the comments were made he went to the officer and tried to smooth things over asking the officer "did my comments offend you?" to which the officer answered "Yes".
Much more to come on this I am sure
