"God gave me a great brain"

“I’m doing God’s work,” Barry told the paper. “I have made public service my ministry. God gave me a great brain, courage, charisma, vision and the kinds of things that make leaders.”

Barry had to apologize last week after video surfaced of him saying, “We’ve got to do something about these Asians coming in, opening up businesses — those dirty shops.”

“They ought to go,” Barry also said. “I’ll just say that right now, you know. But we need African-American businesspeople to be able to take their places, too.”
