On Monday, The Gateway Pundit reported on racist remarks made by former Los Angeles City Council President Nury Martinez.
Martinez was caught on leaked audio saying a fellow Democrat Mike Bonin’s black son was “like a monkey.” Martinez also had this to say about Soros-funded radical DA George Gascon, “F**k that guy. He’s with the blacks.”
Billionaire developer Rick Caruso is running for mayor in Los Angeles against fellow Democrat Karen Bass.
During a debate between the candidates, debate host Dunia Elvir, a Noticiero Telemundo52 news anchor, said, “And this question goes for the both of you. The next mayor of Los Angeles will be either an African-American woman or a white man.”
Caruso quickly corrected her saying, “I’m Italian,” leaving moderator Conan Nolan, NBC4 chief political reporter and anchor, chuckling.
Elvir continues, ” Italian-American.”
To which Caruso said, ” Thank you. That’s Latin. Thank you.”

Nolan was not the only one chuckling at Caruso’s remark. One Twitter posited that in order to be competitive in diverse LA, Caruso had to identify as “spicy white.”
You see how whiteness expands and contracts as it sees fit? We all know Italians are white folks nowadays, but I’m assuming with LA being as diverse as it is, it’s not in his advantage to just be white, he had to make it known he’s spicy white! I can’t stand folks https://t.co/RCxnB2CW1A
