London Breed

San Francisco is in an uproar after the city's black female interim mayor was ousted in favor of a white male 1 percenter. Interim Mayor London Breed was replaced by venture capitalist Mark Farrell at a contentious board meeting on Tuesday.

Breed became interim mayor in December when Mayor Ed Lee died suddenly of a heart attack while shopping. Lee, 65, was the first sitting mayor to die in office since Chicago's first black mayor, Harold Washington, died in 1987.

Breed was next in line to succeed Lee, according to Breitbart News, but she was ousted during an intense Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday night.

"Farrell initially secured the seat by a 7-2 vote but faced a second vote when Supervisor Katy Tang withdrew her initial vote of support. In the end, Farrell took office with a 6-3 vote," according to Bay Area public radio station KQED.

The room erupted with shouts of "racism" after the vote was announced.

“This is war!” some reportedly shouted as board members left the chambers quickly.

Asked if she thought her ouster was due to racism, Breed took the optimistic approach.

“I don't want to dwell on that particular element because it has sadly brought out the worst in some people. And so what I am trying to do as a leader in this city is bring out the best in people," she said, adding, "I am still on the ballot June 5, and we need to get fired up and ready to go!"

In 2015, Breitbart News reported, San Francisco tech workers were slowly moving into traditionally black neighborhoods and displacing black families.

A bus transporting Apple workers from a once black neighborhood to the Apple headquarters in Cupertino was rerouted to a different street after it was hit by rocks and bottles last month.

    Harold Washington didn’t die. They poisoned him.

And so what I am trying to do as a leader in this city is bring out the best in people,” she said, adding, “I am still on the ballot June 5, and we need to get fired up and ready to go!” She's playing it cool so that during the next election, the "race card" can't be a potential tool used against her.

    Please if Miss Breed thought she was going to be the Mayor of San Francisco she was dreaming!

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Good ole boyz strike again!

  • Mia Said so

    Your watching a lot of SCANDLE Oliva Pope... lol

  • California is strange

    Where are we supposed to live!??? I am so tired of black people being forced out of neglected neighborhoods that white people once didn’t GAF about, then suddenly decide they’re beneficial for them. That is so disgusting and this is happening all over the country. I’m not sure why she wanted to be the mayor of San Francisco. I don’t think California is for black people.

  • disqus_TrCUDzOzuG

    I'm not saying race wasn't involved but there was an issue with the separation of power. She was acting Mayor and the president of the Board of Supervisors. They felt this gave her an unfair advantage while she ran for Mayor.

  • GuestSTAR

    Why would she be dreaming???? San Francisco has had a black mayor before. I live in NorCal and besides Berkeley, San Francisco is one of the most liberal cities. Kamala Harris was the District Attorney in San Francisco.

  • vicci

    Who wants o stay any place where they charge 4 dollars we gal for gas? Ill pass

  • MsPam

    I also live in NorCal and born there, yeah they had Willie Brown but most folks (black/white) could not stand him. They want to turn San Francisco back into a majority white city. Most blacks can’t afford to live there anymore

  • GuestSTAR

    San Francisco has always been majority white and I believe Asians are a close second. Many blacks commute to Silicon Valley & San Fran (Bart) to work, but cannot afford to live there.

  • Look@m3

    till this day they always have an unfair advantage so oh well.

  • facingrealit1

    The power of the black vote is REAL and we need to use it to make a difference. Stop believing you have to "like" or "admire" a person to get paid. We need to explore our options - many of you don't like Donald Trump but you can't deny that the economy is booming and black unemployment is at the lowest it has ever been recorded. Unbeknown to many of you, the democrats created the KKK and for years voted against our right to vote. Wake up my brothers and sisters and stop being loyal to people that don't deserve it. It's time for us to walk off the plantation for good.

    Knowledge is POWER!

    It's definitely becoming the state of the have and the have nots. Its the State for the rich. The rest are homeless.

    Some Californians are proposing independence and breaking off from California and forming a new state called New California

    Watch the documentary SanFrancisco 2.0.

  • TheOwley

    I don't know why the change now but San Francisco is having a mayoral race later in June and she can be elected outright if the electorate wishes so. This guy may or may not be in the race for the post. San Francisco is a sanctuary city with lots of housing and homeless issues. Good luck to the winner.

  • Mrs. Jones

    Kamala Harris did more damage to the Black community than the police themselves- And we ARE STILL FIGHTING TO REGAIN OUR COMMUNITY from her reign here. London is straight out of the West Side projects who went on, with the City on her back to earn not only her degrees but the admiration of others high and low on political spectrum. As soon as Lee died the supervisors teamed together to oust her and now will try and split the vote between the BORN and RAISED and the just visiting. WE WILL RISE AND FIGHT TO BRING HER BACK UP AND BE THE VOICE WE ALL NEED.

  • Jack Blakk

    When it comes to blacks in San Francisco then you will see that city becomes conservative (to say the least)! Think what you want but that city could care less about blacks. With that being said, Kaepernick Played for the 49ers. There's history behind that city and Northern California and race relations! But these people still back Pelosi and the rest of those crooks.

  • Mrs. Jones

    Pelosi Daughter did this documentary so hmmm......

  • GuestSTAR

    I happen to have a different opinion of her. Voted for her in 2016 and will be voting for her again.
    I mentioned on here before where she pushed and promoted a program in California where if you are a homeowner and lose your job, the government will pay your mortgage for up to 18 months or until you find another job.
    My sister was laid off, applied for the program, provided all the normal mortgage loan documents and was approved. Without this 'Kamala Harris' program, which is what I call it, my sister would've lost her home. Four months into the program my sister became gainfully employed again and was able to resume paying her own mortgage.

  • Mrs. Jones

    You must not live in the poverty stricken neighborhoods of San Francisco and had to deal with her L.A. style laws that she left behind. Good for you and yours.

  • Mrs. Jones

    But this is actually about London....

    I don't know what to think. In a way it's a blessing in disguise for the young lady.

  • the guest

    Wealthy white gays are racist and self serving in terms of civil and human rights. Most conservative "log cabin republicans". Of course a wealthy white gay city voted out a black female mayor.

  • Decked Out

    Well said.

  • Decked Out

    California is Too Daym EX$pen$ive.

  • MythCalledLove

    If she was next in line why did they hv to vote? I thought she would continue to serve until the next election.

    Gay Mafia is real.

    To say Blacks are being forced out of historical Black neighborhoods is a farce. No one ever questions why the whites can come in and take over a neighborhood and it thrives, yet when we live their it struggles. The Blacks who got educated and moved into the middle class move out of the neighborhoods to escape drugs, gangs, robbery and violence. The leftover class sells or never owned the property and get priced out. That part is called capitalism.

    I've lived in several states with large Black populations. The schools systems are always jacked up, mismanaged or doing terribly academically. DC was giving away houses for $1 if people would fix them up. Older Blacks in Baldwin Hills and Ladera in LA are cashing out for decent coin as their kids don't want to suffer with poor schools and bars on the windows. Brooklyn brownstones, Cascades in Atlanta.

    Ultimately paint and a lawnmower are not expensive and can do a lot for a community. Not getting robbed or having your children mocked or worse beat up for trying to be educated and smart would be another important step. We need to grow our middle, then the communities would not get overrun by hungry whites looking for a deal.

  • blazewon22

    Hell yeah! That's why I bounced years ago. Saved 2K a month with a zip code change.

  • blazewon22

    But why couldn't we take care of the neighborhood and invest while we were there? No one ever bothered to open a coffee shop, ice cream parlor or a decent restaurant? No one ever bothered to paint or cut the grass? No one ever volunteered at the school or helped the kids with homework? Who wants to live with animals that require you to have bars on the windows and sleep on the floor to duck bullets?

  • LordeAmbler

    The real problem is we get gentrified by poorer blacks. And Im saying we because i look to neighborhoods that are safe with rising benefits. But I believe the much larger issue is white america does not want a thriving middle class black america because it will dismantle their middle white class so either we have exceptionally well upper class blacks or a very poor lower class. Either way our skills and academia in the community isnt enough yet to keep our middle class growing. The next generation is already showing that they cannot thrive in middle class because they lack the skills. So its either be rich or poor.

  • The Last Word

    1. Anyone who believes Trump is responsible for the present state of the economy is a dolt or a troll. He has done literally nothing other than sign into law an ill-advised tax bill.

    2. The Dems who you assert created the KKK and denied Blacks the right to vote joined the Republican Party following passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1964.

  • blazewon22

    The bar keeps rising but we are making a lot of strides regardless. At 13% of the population we aren’t a major threat to anyone. We have to learn to compete by their rules in the white collar world. It isn’t fair and the competition is tough in the white world. They will eat their own so you know they don’t give a what about taking you down.

    Every single race, religion and color has been persecuted somewhere in the world.

    blacks only make up 6% of San Francisco's population which is very low for a major city, the goal was simple eliminate ALL affordable housing. They hate blacks because they kept voting to bar gay marriage and they were only able to push it through with the courts but it took a lot longer.

  • SandraRose

    I totally agree. The San Francisco judge who overturned Prop-8 was gay. Then the Supreme Court made gay marriage the law of the land thanks to Obama.

  • Calikush

    Agreed! ?
