Marion Barry feels that his comments about getting rid of Asian businesses…

…in the DC area have been taken out of context.

My comments were taken out of context & construed as disparaging 2 entire Asian biz community. We DO deserve our bizs t/b nice places in W8!

I am trying to imagine in what context the tenor and sense of these comments

“We got to do something about these Asians coming in and opening up businesses and dirty shops,” Barry said. “They ought to go. I’m going to say that right now. But we need African-American businesspeople to be able to take their places, too.”

…are improved; more specifically, I wonder what the laws of physics would be in a place where this statement is less offensive in context, and whether that place can support an Azathoth. I’m kind of hoping the answer to that last question is ‘No.’

PS: Marion Barry is going to give us all sorts of stuff to work with, huh?
