A GOP Alabama council member referred to one of his Black colleagues as a “house n—-r” at a meeting on Monday evening. Tarrant, Alabama city councilman Tommy Bryant loudly asked, “Do we have a house n—-r in here?
Do we? Do we? Will she please stand up.” Democrats called for Bryant’s resignation after he used the slur at a Monday council meeting.
Local Republicans also condemned Bryant for what they called a “racially charged outburst.” Bryant made the comment as part of a discussion raised by members of the public about Facebook posts by Bryant’s wife.
