NY Governor’s Shocking Racist Comment Sparks Outrage!

New York Democratic Governor Kathy Hochul has come under fire for her recent remarks about black children in the Bronx during a conversation at the Milken Institute Global Conference. Hochul’s statement, suggesting that black children in the Bronx don’t know what a “computer” is, has sparked criticism and accusations of perpetuating harmful stereotypes.

Hochul’s comments were met with immediate pushback, including from fellow Democrats in the Bronx. Assembly Member Amanda Septimo described the remarks as “harmful, deeply misinformed, and genuinely appalling,” emphasizing that such statements perpetuate negative stereotypes about underserved communities without addressing the systemic neglect they face.

Karine Reyes, another State Assembly member from the Bronx, expressed deep concern over Hochul’s remarks and the underlying perception they reveal about black and brown children. Reyes emphasized the intelligence, capabilities, and deserving nature of Bronx children, urging Hochul to do better in her understanding and representation of these communities.

Former GOP congressman Lee Zeldin, who ran against Hochul in the 2022 election, highlighted the backlash by reposting reactions from individuals like former collegiate swimmer Riley Gaines. Gaines criticized the disconnect and lack of understanding shown by leaders like Hochul, calling attention to the need for greater awareness and sensitivity in addressing issues affecting minority communities.

Criticism also came from conservative voices like the Libs of TikTok account and Sen. Ted Cruz, who questioned why white liberals like Hochul often underestimate African-Americans. Fox Business host Charles Payne labeled Hochul’s remarks as insulting but typical of a certain mindset prevalent among some leaders.

In response to the backlash, Hochul released a statement expressing regret for her comments, clarifying that she did not intend to imply that black children in the Bronx are unaware of computers. She acknowledged the issue of limited access to technology and opportunities for high-paying jobs among minority communities, highlighting the need for greater equity and resources to bridge these gaps.
