Big thanks to Rochester City Council Vice President Adam McFadden who stopped in studio today to chat with Bill & John about the Jeremy Kappell controversy.
One part of the conversation that we felt has been glossed over a bit is from the side of those who say they were offended by what was said. Adam helped to provide a historical context to how 'coon' was used as a racial slur and how it was the applied to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s name.
Adam hits on racism and the reaction to claims of racism. He also discusses the City of Rochester's involvement, and what/if anything he would have done differently.
