An open letter to Carson Mayor Jim Dear:
[img]1507|right|Basil Kimbrew||no_popup[/img]After your appearance on Saturday at Cal State Dominguez Hills, where former Carson City Councilman Mike Gipson was installed as the newest member of the state Assembly, you owe an apology African Americans to Carson’s African American women.
You are a racist, sir.
This is not 1815. This is the year 2015,
and you will not disrespect the black women of Carson.
The Carson African American men allowed Mr. Dear to call Councilwoman Lula Davis Holmes a b—- two years ago.
You guys better stand up this time to Jim Dear or I will.
He will not get away with disrespecting our African American women.

This is Black History Month.
Mayor Dear will not shame Carson African Americans.
