Democrat New York City Mayor Eric Adams is in hot water right now.
The newly elected mayor of New York City is under fire after a video of him from 2019 shows him telling a crowd that “Every day in the police department, I kicked those crackers’ a**”.
Adams who was a former police captain was bragging about how he was a better police officer than his white colleagues.
Adams has since apologized but his comments come just days after two NYC police officers were shot and killed.
Watch the moment Adams made his racist comments here:
During the Mayoral Campaign #EricAdams called me & @AndrewYang racist. But when you call white cops "crackers" like Eric Adams did, wouldn't you consider that racist? Time to damn your river of divisiveness and apologize.https://t.co/koZCBOzq3U#NYC #NYPD @NYCMayor

The New York Post had more on the story:
Mayor Eric Adams apologized Friday after an old clip resurfaced where the mayor was recorded saying he was a superior cop compared to his “cracker” colleagues during his time in the New York City Police Department.
“Every day in the police department, I kicked those crackers’ ass,” now-mayor Adams says in the video at a private Harlem Business Alliance event in 2019.
“Man, I was unbelievable in the police department with 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement,” Adams, who retired as a captain in the NYPD, says in the video referencing the group he co-founded.
“[I] became a sergeant, a lieutenant and a captain. You know the story, some people all of a sudden trying to reinvent me, but the reality is what I was then is who I am now.”
This is *not* the same guy people saw during the campaign.🔻https://t.co/pR2Su4cJ9P

An unearthed video of newly-minted New York City Mayor Eric Adams shows him using a racial slur in a talk on policing.
The 2019 video shows Adams speaking to a crowd at the Harlem Business Alliance about his rise through the ranks of the New York Police Department (NYPD).
While speaking to the crowd, Adams uses a racial slur to refer to the White officers he outperformed as he grew his career as a police officer.
“Every day in the police department, I kicked those crackers’ a–, man,” Adams said in the video reviewed by Fox News Digital. “I was unbelievable in the police department.”
