Paul Congemi Wants Blacks To Leave The U.S & Go Back To Africa...
According to the New York Daily News, “St. Petersburg mayoral candidate Paul Congemi went on a racial tirade Tuesday when he told members of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement and backers of rival candidate Jesse Nevel’s campaign to “go back to Africa.”
Nevel, 27, the national chair of the movement, announced his candidacy in March saying he would run on a platform of reparations to the African community.
Congemi unleashed on Nevel during a mayoral debate Wednesday.
“Mr. Nevel, you and your people you talk about reparations. The reparations that you talk about, Mr. Nevel, your people already got your reparations. Your reparations came in the form of a man named Barack Obama,” the Republican said.”
He continued on. “My advice to you if you don’t like it here in America, planes leave every hour from from Tampa Airport, go back to Africa,” he told Nevel supporters.
The Uhuru chairman, who is white, replied to the rant calling Congemi a “non-factor” in the race.
Instead, he called his opponent Rick Baker the “real enemy.”
Baker responded to Congemi’s remarks, saying, “I first have to specifically reject the comments Mr. Congemi just made. I just think in 2017 in St. Petersburg, Florida, I never would have dreamed we would have heard comments like that at a mayoral debate.”
