Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib left Detroit’s police chief outraged and insulted after a tour of his department’s new video surveillance facility — by telling him he should only hire black employees to be facial recognition analysts, a report said.
“I think non-African-Americans think African Americans all look the same,” the freshman congresswoman told the city’s top cop, James Craig, during a tour of the department’s Public Safety Headquarters, The Detroit News reported.
“Analysts need to be African-American, not people that are not,” she insisted during the tour, which was open to the press and which left several officials outraged.
Craig protested immediately, telling Tlaib that he trusts “people who are trained, regardless of race, regardless of gender.”
Afterward, he told the News, “It’s insulting We have a diverse group of crime analysts, and what she said — that non-whites should not work in that capacity because they think all black people look alike — is a slap in the face to all the men and women in the crime center.” More
Chief James Craig is not mincing any words:
FOX 2 asked Chief James Craig “Are her (Rashida Tlaib) comments racist?”
“I think they are racist, I don’t know (if) we can call it what we want,” Craig said.
