WASHINGTON - When apologizing to the Asian community for comments he made last month, D.C. councilmember Marion Barry may have offended another minority group on Thursday: Polish people.

"America has had racial tensions from the time it was founded," Barry said. "Italians coming here, the Irish came here, the Jews came here, the Polacks came here, the Chinese came here."

He kept DC in the gutter during his mayorship and has kept his ward in dire straits ever since. At least Biden didn't do that to Delaware.
