Even though no one complained, Atlantic City Councilman Kaleem Shabazz took it upon himself to make sure a statue of Christopher Columbus was taken down and removed, at a taxpayer cost of $19,000. Residents not happy about lack of community outreach and improper procedure. Watch video above.
Shabazz faces backlash over racist, anti-Italian sentiment.
Atlantic City Council members Shabazz & Delgado were sure the entire city would be in agreement, even though there was no discussion with both the Italian-American community and the public at large.
PUBIC COMMENT: Even though AC is suffering from a dramatic increase of crime, murder, riots, looting & unemployment, Shabazz found time & money to remove the statue of Christopher Columbus in AC.
AC Councilman Shabazz says ‘Columbus was a rapist, racist & butcher’.
Atlantic City Councilman Shabazz Disrespects Italian Americans.
City Solicitor Tarver provides additional, gory detail in just how horrible Columbus was.
Congrats to Councilman Shabazz for showing how he truly feels about Italians, and American History in Atlantic City.
