A local Texas politician once again apologized for using racial slurs to described two black officials, but said he will not resign from his position.
Brownsville City Commissioner Cesar De Leon apologized during a public meeting for using the n-word and the f-word in references to the officials, according to The Brownsville Herald.
“I profoundly regret my choice of words and am sincerely apologetic for having used the language I did,” De Leon said. “I know I hurt my constituents and have disappointed my friends and family, and most of all, myself,” De Leon said during the meeting.
In September, a recording of De Leon using the n-word and f-word to describe the prosecutors was posted on social media, which has since been taken down.
“There are a couple of f—-ing n—–s that Luis Saenz is getting, and I don’t know where he is getting them from. They are coming down to my f—ing city and now they are trying to f—ing put everybody in jail because they think we are a bunch of Mexicans that hit our wives,” De Leon said according to The Brownsville Herald. “They are f—ing … and I would say this, that I would never dare use that word, but you know what, yes, there are a couple of n—–s in there that think that all of us are f—ing taco eaters.”
