Why is the mayor so abusive and disrespectful against an Ethiopian man?
Editor’s NoteVincent Gray, Mayor of the District of Columbia has visited a neighborhood in Washington DC last Friday in an effort to stop the sale of drug paraphernalia. During his visit the Mayor asked an Ethiopian clerk whether he ever heard about Marijuana.
The Ethiopian shopkeeper politely responded no. In a city that Amharic is the third official language, the mayor was surprised by the man’s language barrier and disrespectfully responded “you must be the only one in creation”. If the man has never heard of people smoking weed, should he get such mistreatment from the person perhaps he elected, to represent him? Please read Emebet Sabela’s open letter to the Mayor
