Democrats on the Los Angeles City Council were caught making racist remarks about a colleague’s black child on a leaked audio recording, according to a report on Sunday.
The recording — which was reported on by The Los Angeles Times and has not been reviewed by The Post — captured Council President Nury Martinez referring to her colleague Mike Bonin’s black son as “ese changito,” which means “that little monkey” in Spanish, the newspaper reported.
Martinez, who is Latina, also said Bonin, who is white, was raising his toddler “like a little white kid.”
“I was like, this kid needs a beatdown. Let me take him around the corner and then I’ll bring him back,” the city council president said. She also referred to the child as “su negrito,” a derogatory world for a black person in Spanish, according to the report.
At another point in the roughly hour-long conversation, she called Bonin, also a Democrat, “that little bitch,” the Times reported.
