New York Judge Claims Letitia James Was Booed Only Because of Racism

In March, New York Attorney General Letitia James was met with a chorus of boos from FDNY members at a ceremony. Subsequently, there were chants of ‘Trump!’ from the crowd.

During a recent appearance before a New York judge on an unrelated matter, FDNY officials found themselves discussing this incident, with the judge implying that this was all about race.

For years, the left has often resorted to this lazy go-to excuse whenever faced with criticism.

As reported by FOX News:

New York judge says FDNY booing of Letitia James, pro-Trump chants not about politics, ‘has to do with race’

Brooklyn Federal Court Judge Nicholas Garaufis reportedly cited the incident involving members of the New York City Fire Department booing state Attorney General Letitia James and chanting in favor of former President Trump last month in suggesting that a racist culture persists at the FDNY.

Garaufis recently ordered FDNY Commissioner Laura Kavanagh and the city’s Corporation Counsel, Sylvia Hinds-Radix, to appear before him at a status conference scheduled to discuss the settlement in the Vulcan Society of Black Firefighters’ case against the FDNY in May, the New York Daily News reported.

At the last status conference on March 14, Vulcan Society President Regina Wilson complained to Garaufis about a March 8 incident where some members of the FDNY booed James and chanted “Trump! Trump! Trump!” as the attorney general took the stage during a promotion ceremony at the Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn.

And this is what the judge stated:

“Get the EEO [Equal Employment Opportunity] office straightened out. Take some of your brilliant lawyers from the Corporation Counsel and put them in there and start holding hearings. That’s not a request, that’s a direction,” Garaufis responded, according to N.Y. Daily News.

“I’ve lived in New York City all my life. I know what the problem is. And believe me, front and center is what happened the other day. This doesn’t have to do with politics, this has to do with race.”

This is absurd. There are numerous reasons why people might boo Letitia James, and none of them have anything to do with her race.
