People have been removed from political life for a lot less than this. He’s a hater and can’t be allowed to continue in his current capacity. If he won’t step down, fire him. The inaction of the mayor and city council in this instance is tantamount to an endorsement. Shame on them for not having the courage to do the right thing.

Stan should resign from the commission. He was the only Lancaster city official at the Rally. He was introduced as such. For him to utter these comments, no matter that his other remarks were toned-down, it reflects on the city which he is suppose to serve and the Mayor who appointed him.

He needs to go, so wrong

Stan Muhammad spoke on his own. Mayor Parris did not have any control over the mean spirited words uttered by this man. This is just a case of reverse discrimination. In the past (possibly now), blacks and other races had titles that had been determined and widely used by majority of whites.
Muhammad gave an apology, and educating regarding differences of people to him as well as others is vital and fundamental.
Hate is no place when many people of different color, sex orientation, religious and non-religious beliefs are gathered to pray/meditate peacefully.

Reverse discrimination was a term introduced by the media. It’s not a valid term. Reverse discrimination implies that the meaning of discrimination can only mean discrimination againts blacks. That of course is not true. Reverse discrimination is a term that does not need to be used. It’s discrimination, plain and simple.

His apology was not heartfelt, needs to go

Where is the outrage? Mayor R. Rex Parris teams up with Stan Muhammad to file a voting rights lawsuit against Palmdale? The same Stan Muhammad who utters slurs against the gay and Jewish community? A Lancaster mayor and a Lancaster commissioner? This is a disgrace that will bring shame to the Antelope Valley when it should only bring shame to the two responsible…Parris and Muhammad .

Mimizing others use of language is very immature and shows you can’t use facts just more fuel on the fire

While minimizing others over there diction is a bit immature, however, the bigger problem is that we have a representative of our town who cannot formualte a grammatically correct sentence whilst he insults multiple cultures during community rally that carried the message of unity. He needs to step down or be removed against his will.
