My favorite part of the above story is:
"Dymally was quoted in the San Jose Mercury News Thursday saying the child was "a little African-American girl. Would he (Riordan) have done that to a white girl?"
The girl is white, with blonde hair."
Followed shortly by:
"Race is not a factor in this issue," Dymally said in Thursday's statement, adding that Riordan had apologized a second time. "It is time for us to move on."
I find it troubling that Riordan made an asinine comment to a 6 year old girl...I am appalled at the attitude of Dymally.
