The anti-Black, anti-LGBTQ, and anti-indigenous remarks uttered by Nury Martinez, Gil Cedillo, Kevin de Leon, and LA Federation of Labor director Ron Herrera, as well as in their presence, horrify and infuriate us at the AAPI Equity Alliance.
After discovering that the committee chairman had been caught on camera uttering homophobic and racial slurs, SAG-AFTRA demanded that three Los Angeles city council members and the head of the county labor union resign on Monday.
The Screen Actors Guild joined the chorus of outrage after the disclosure of an hour-long chat on Sunday in which council president Nuri Martinez insulted native Mexicans and made racial slurs about a congressman’s three-year-old black son.
The Screen Actors Guild released a statement in which it declared that racism and homophobia “have no place in the labor movement, government, or society.” “All leaders must uphold greater standards centered on anti-racism, and there is an immediate demand for discrimination and hate speech.”
On Monday, Martinez announced his resignation as council chairman. She was pushed to resign from her council seat, as were Gil Zedillo and Kevin De Leon, by a number of influential people, including mayoral hopefuls Rick Caruso and Karen Bass.
President of the Los Angeles County Fed Ron Herrera overheard the three lawmakers discussing how to effectively use the redistributive process to their advantage while harming their opponents.
Accusing Herrera’s speech of not “confronting and criticizing” board members in real-time, SAG-AFTRA, a subsidiary of the Los Angeles County Fed, criticized it.
“While City Council members are elected officials who represent the interests of Los Angeles residents, the LACFL speaks for more than 800,000 county employees, many of whom are persons of color and LGBTQIA+.
At the meeting, Herrera supported the racism that several council members had expressed. Furthermore, homophobia is unacceptable. The Los Angeles community is divided and enflamed with animosity as a result of it. According to SAG-AFTRA, there is no justification for this breach of trust.
