"Those" People?

Nassau County legislator Ellen Birnbaum is in seriously hot water for racist remarks. According to Democratic Chairman Jay Jacobs, CBS-New York reports, Birnbaum allegedly said of an area in New Cassel, New York, “This is a bad neighborhood, and it’s a ghetto – and for good measures, it’s full of those black people." She has apologized but is refusing to step down.
