The St. Petersburg, Florida, race for mayor took an ugly turn when candidate Paul Congemi attacked members of the Uhuru movement and their representative, Jesse Nevel, during a debate Tuesday, telling them to “go back to Africa.”
“Mr. Nevel you and your people talk about reparations. The reparations that you talk about, Mr. Nevel, your people already got your reparations. Your reparations came in the form of a man named Barack Obama,” Congemi said, pointing his finger at the audience as he spoke.
He continued, “My advice to you, if you don’t like it here in America, planes leave every hour from Tampa airport. Go back to Africa. Go back to Africa. Go back!
“Get out of here” a woman in the audience could be heard saying several times.
