Rob Ford has to apologize for being racist a couple times

Next week’s city council meeting will be the setting of another classic Rob Ford forced apology, as he owns up to a few racist lowlights. The occasion is a report from the city’s integrity commissioner, who found that then-mayor Ford broke city council’s code of conduct in March 2012 during a wild St. Patrick’s Day bender, when he called a taxi driver “Paki,” then mocked him with “fake language sounds.” Ford will also be apologizing for his 2014 boast that he is “the most racist guy around,” and the language he used then to describe black people (in the commissioner’s judiciously hyphenated report, “n----ir”), Italians (“w-p” and “d-go”) and Jews (“k---e”).
