INQUIRER: The chief legislative aide to Philadelphia City Councilman W. Wilson Goode Jr. issued a “letter of apology” yesterday for flashing handwritten signs in City Council chambers comparing a Fox29 news reporter to the Ku Klux Klan. In the letter addressed to Goode, Latrice Bryant said: “I apologize for my public, albeit silent, display of the handwritten signs. What I did was inappropriate and inexcusable.” On Sept. 18, during a Council meeting, Bryant held up notebook paper with the messages “Fox29 are racist” and “Jeff Cole KKK.” Bryant and Goode are black and reporter Jeff Cole is white. As Fox29 tried to interview Goode last week, the councilman pointedly warned Cole: “Don’t you ever disrespect a black woman like that again.” MORE
