Mrs. America co-founder of the Beauty Contest was accused by several of this year's candidates of making humiliating and racially insensitive statements, including the use of a racial ax and the assumption that black men are "drug dealers" and "black women". I must stop To get babies with four baby fathers. "
At a Monday's press conference, four 2018 participants accused Mrs. America Marmar, the Executive Director of the Electoral Commission, to voice the offensive remarks during a preparatory event in Las Vegas
The attendees were accompanied by prominent women's rights advocate Gloria Allred, Marmel said a group of four African-American women had addressed the event ̵
During this conversation, Marmel used the N-word at least twi ce, the women said, once describing the owners of the Ebony magazine Marmel claimed to know and calling him "the most racist people he has ever known has learned because she freely uses the term n **** r ", reported NBC News, quotes from the candidates.
The women claimed that Marmelel said it was okay for him to use the term because the Ebony owners described him as a "brother," NBC said.
Brandy Palacios, the current Mrs. Missouri, claimed that Marmel then put his Arman next to her "to compare skin color."
Marmel reused the racial hatchet when he replayed his time as a baseball player in the 1950s, seeing signs that belittle Jews and African Americans in the crowd.
Marmel, who is Jewish, has since torn most women's statements as "ugly," "wrong," and out of context. However, he confirmed that he had used the bow to describe one of these condescending signs.
"For her to turn this into me with this bow, for a kind of epithet is disgusting and says something about her," he told the guard.
According to the women, Marmelel said in the same conversation that "black women should stop having babies with four little dads and all black men are in prison because they must stop selling drugs and kill each other."
Crissy Timpson, the current Mrs. New Jersey, said the Las Vegas event was the second time she'd heard that Marmel had made so racially insensitive comments.
Timpson claimed that she had a conversation with Marmel a few days earlier, the party in which he told Colin Kaepernick, the former NFL player, who knelt during the national anthem to protest against the police brutality as "asshole who … had to stop disobeying my flag "had pilloried. When Timpson faced her I do not think Kaepernick disobeyed the flag. "David changed the subject and said," Well, you people have to stop killing each other, we need people to educate the black community, "she recalled The Guardian 19659002] He told me," You black women have to stop 'Getting babies and four baby daddies, your men drug dealers, incarcerated, in jail, you're on welfare and killing yourself,' she continued.
Marmel called Timpson's allegations of "bullshit."
Allred, the women's rights advocate, said Monday that the four candidates – Timpson, Palacios, Kimberly Phillips and Jeri Ward – had "no plans" to file a lawsuit.
Instead, the women sought an apology from Marmel and wanted him to complete a sensitivity training focused on racial discrimination and stereotypes.
"[The four women] feel that it is their duty to share what they felt to be experience because they do not want the next year's candidates to be subjected to what they consider racially offensive and humiliating comments they make hurt and caused them so much pain, "Allred said, according to The Associated Press.
Last Monday, he told NBC News that he had talked to the participants about the race during the penultimate event last year, but that his statements were "mis-characterized". He said he will neither apologize nor go through the process
"Based on my career and what I've done for the African American community, does it sound like I need sensitivity training?" He told The Guardian.
