Baez Seeks a Ban on ‘Ghetto’

In August, the New York Daily News ran a column headlined, “Maria Baez ‘goes ghetto’ on election power lawyer Stanley Schlein.”

The article describes a time when Baez was at the Board of Elections in the Bronx and was “cursing a blue streak [and] lunged across the table at Stanley.”

Today, Baez introduced a City Council resolution “declaring a symbolic ban on the negative use of the word ‘ghetto’ in New York City.”

Shades of the Council battle over the n-word?
