"Go back to Africa!". The reparations that you talk about, Mr. Nevel, your people already got your reparations.

Mayoral Candidate Paul Congemi took aim at the Uhuru movement and their candidate, Jesse Nevel, on July 18 during a mayoral debate, saying, "Mr. Nevel you and your people talk about reparations. It is simply unacceptable to spew this kind of bigoted rhetoric".

"This candidate spoke hateful words about African-Americans and our LGBT community".

This is far from the first time Congemi has proven himself to be a wrinkled, white cretin.

"I'm not politically correct", Congemi told the Post.

Congemi told the Post that he believes his rival is "obviously" a "self-hating white man" for his policies, adding that he has "nothing against African Americans who are doing their best here in America".

Reparations to the black community for a history of enslavement and oppression may not sound realistic to many Americans, however a United Nations panel made a non-binding declaration past year that the USA did owe African-Americans reparations.

'I will never endorse sin, ' he said.

Ah, just keep digging that hole deeper, Congemi.

Nevel's campaign slogan is "Unity Through Reparations", and he has called on the white community to back the cause.

A pledge that obviously hadn't sat too well with Congemi who went off on Nevel's supporters after being asked about opportunities for youth in the city. "That's why I feel that it's important for those of us in the white community to take a public stand with reparations".

"Congemi's comments come on the heels of a slander campaign by operatives of the Democratic Party and the St. Pete police union, both endorsers of the incumbent Rick Kriseman, who have labeled my supporters and the Uhuru Movement as 'domestic terrorists, '" he said.

There was reaction to Congemi's comments from those in attendance.

Now, he's a Republican and a Trump supporter.

In early 2017, Congemi was in trouble again - this time arrested for felony elder abuse when his 87-year-old mother was admitted to intensive care for bed sores so bad that doctors could see bone, according to a police report obtained by the Times. Those charges were later dropped, and he continued his mayoral run. Congemi claimed that his mother had only been without home health care for about a day and a half as he switched providers. Congemi reportedly told the assistant manager.

His modus operandi will apparently remain the same this time around, despite criticisms and backlash over his comments at the forum. "I am running for mayor, and once I get elected you will be fired".
