How progressive.

Via Mediaite:

Buena Vista Township Clerk Gloria Platko is resisting demands that she step down after another local official, Interim Township ManagerDexter Mitchell (a Democrat), taped a phone conversation in which Platko referred to Township Supervisor Dwayne Parker (also a Democrat) as “an arrogant nigger.”

The 63 year-old Democrat later apologized forthe “slip of the tongue,” but shockingly insisted that her use of the slur doesn’t make her racist, because she has “eaten Thanksgiving dinner with black friends at their house.”
