Marion Barry: Let’s get rid of Filipino nurses along with those ‘dirty’ Asian shops

Apparently it’s not just “dirty” Asian businesses that “ought to go.” Now it’s Filipino nurses too.
Noted nursing workforce expert Marion Berry weighs in. Idiot. http://t.co/FLYAl6pz

Barry made his xenophobic remarks about immigrant nurses—especially those from the Philippines—at a University of the District of Columbia budget hearing on Monday. From the Washington Examiner:
“In fact, it’s so bad, that if you go to the hospital now, you find a number of immigrants who are nurses, particularly from the Philippines,” Barry said. “And no offense, but let’s grow our own teachers, let’s grow our own nurses — and so that we don’t have to be scrounging around in our community clinics and other kinds of places — having to hire people from somewhere else.”

It's starting to seem like Marion Barry isn't just "granddad racist" so much as he is "actually racist." http://t.co/cUQhtZiw

Normally Barry would be on Twitter flaunting his racism and digging himself into an even deeper hole, but his account is silent this week. Maybe he misplaced his Twitter shovel?
