A three-minute video of local firebrand Gary Chambers on Thursday night berating and calling for the resignation of East Baton Rouge Parish School Board member Connie Bernard has gone viral.
“You should walk out of here and resign and never come back,” said Chambers, publisher of The Rouge Collection, “because you are the example of racism in this community. You are horrible.”
Bernard apologized on Friday. The board ended up voting unanimously to create a committee that will come up with options for a new name for the school.
