FOX News reported:
A California professor campaigning for Gov. Gavin Newsom reportedly called Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder “a Black face on White supremacy” during an event with the governor Monday.
Newsom appeared at a get out the vote event with Black elected leaders in Crenshaw ahead of the Sept. 14 recall election, in which Californians will decide whether to recall the governor or keep him in office. Voters who choose “yes” to recall will also be able to pick one of 46 candidates to replace the governor.
Elder, a conservative radio host, is the clear front-runner among the candidates and could make history as California’s first Black governor. But according to LAist reporter Kyle Stokes, speakers at Monday’s rally tried to paint him as a racist.
Without mentioning Elder by name, state Sen. Sydney Kamlager said there’s a recall challenger who “thinks he might have an edge because of his color. But racism … comes in all shapes and sizes, and we’re not stupid,” Stokes reported.
Melina Abdullah, a professor at California State University, Los Angeles, followed up by saying, “She didn’t say his name, but I will: Larry Elder is a Black face on White supremacy,” Stokes reported.
