You Have To Overlook This: He's From That Era And That's How They Roll
A Texas city councilman is under fire for using a racial slur in an official document.
Mustang Ridge City Council member Charles Laws referred to a proposed immigrant detention center as a “holding pen for wetbacks” on the March 12 meeting agenda, MyFOXAustin.com reports.I mean, he's roughly the same age as Uncle Jerry, so I don't see any reason why the same standard shouldn't be applied here.
When first asked for comment, Laws told the TV station, "I'm 74 years old, and that's what we called them when I was growing up. I don't care about political crap."
