Christie Asked to Apologize for Racial Remark

Republican Gov. Chris Christie

Republican Gov. Chris Christie has been asked to apologize for referring to the first Black female leader of the state Assembly by race and gender, not by name, during a church-hosted meeting.

Christie told an audience Tuesday that an "African-American female speaker of the Assembly" is blocking a vote on a school voucher bill that would let children in failing districts attend classes elsewhere.

Democratic Speaker Sheila Oliver later said she was "appalled" that Christie injected race into the discussion on education. Oliver, who represents a district with some failing schools, has said she believes the state should make a larger investment in public education.

On Thursday, the pastor whose church hosted the meeting asked Christie to apologize. He said the governor was disrespectful to the speaker and missed a chance to unite the community
