The news is out: [A California city’s chief health official referred to Asian Americans as “yellow folk” during a meeting about racism as a public health crisis.
Sacramento County health director Dr Peter Beilenson used the term, widely considered a racist slur, while speaking in support of the resolution earlier this week.
“It’s a crucial thing we need to be doing to address the issues of the African American, and brown, and yellow folks, as well as the white folks,” Dr Beilenson said, according to Capital Public Radio, which first reported the comments.
Mr Beilenson later apologized, telling the radio station it was a “significant mistake” and that he would not be using the term again.]
