PUBLISHED:|UPDATED:

LOS ALTOS - 搅拌的强烈抗议,这么说的人谁认为人应该被要求戴口罩,因为冠状病毒疫情的公共场所后,“出你的采棉心态,”洛斯阿尔托斯市议员珍妮熊周五表示,她打算进行道歉此话在下次议会会议。

公开道歉就是近3000人签署了一份请愿书问熊交付后,她在是否采取面具条例5月21日的讨论中提出的意见。她反对这样的条例和副市长Neysa Fligor,谁是黑的,它的青睐。一个表决不采取后,很明显没有足够的支持。

关注她看到镇附近没有戴口罩的人,Fligor说,许多居民都搞不清何时何地戴上口罩。

熊说,她认为该条例只会造成更多的混乱。“谁认为是增加透明度的订单......这个人整个层次,我觉得你是你的采棉头脑,”她说,根据刊登在帕洛阿尔托每日邮报的一篇文章。

在会议结束后,一位匿名洛斯阿尔托斯居民开始了请愿书,说熊的话是‘令人厌恶的声明证明,经常刷在洛斯拉图斯的潜在系统性的种族主义’,并要求她公开道歉。

“These words and the lack of action is actively detrimental to our African-American community in Los Altos,” the petition reads. “While I do not speak on behalf of the African American community, it is in no way, shape, or form okay for our Council to not address the racism that is ever so present in our town.”

请愿书敦促安理会“采取行动。”其他人都在问熊辞职。

According to the latest census data from 2010, about 70.6% of Los Altos’ 20,459 residents are white and only 0.2% are black.

在接受记者采访时星期五的下午,一个明确的情感熊很难找到词语来形容发生了什么事,说她的言论“无耻”。

She acknowledged “anything that I say is so easily turned into making up an excuse” and said she has since been thinking of the “meaning of the phrase that I have known my entire life.”

她说,这是一个短语奶奶用在任何地方或该死什么的F说” ...。这是代替说的。这是怎样一个女人不会用脏话,”布鲁斯说。

Bruins said she was frustrated by the circular arguments about the proposed mask ordinance and her comment wasn’t “at all” directed at Fligor.

“There’s five council members and it was not aimed at any individual. It was aimed at the situation,” Bruins said, adding that “those words will never again come out of my mouth.”

问她的意见是否是种族主义,熊回答说:“当我说,我有没有看到或理解它是种族主义者?答案是不。现在回想起来,并通过不同的镜头看它,绝对是。是时候让这句话消失在我的个人生活,在我个人的词汇量,在世界各地。这是我们的历史的非常难看部分相连的声明“。

Fligor在周五接受采访时下旬说,熊的评论是‘不恰当’和‘伤害’。

“There’s no excuse for it,” Fligor said. “It was wrong to make such a statement based on its horrible history but I know Jeannie. We’re friends, so I know it didn’t come from a place of racism or malice.”

Fligor said she is “definitely not personally offended” and that if she had been attacked personally she would have “spoken out.”

Asked to comment about the matter Friday, Mayor Janis Pepper said she would “prefer not to get engaged on this,” though she admitted the remark was “inappropriate.”

“I haven’t talked to her specifically about it,” Pepper said. “But knowing her, I don’t believe that it had racist intent and that’s what she said to the vice mayor. She apologized to the council member that it was directed at and that council member has accepted her apology.”
