Civil rights attorney Leo Terrell thinks there is enough evidence to “convict” New York City mayor Eric Adams in the court system “as being a racist.”

The notion made by Terrell comes after a video surfaced from 2019 showing the now Democrat mayor referring to white police officers as “crackers.” Adams has since apologized for the remarks.

“Every day in the Police Department, I kicked those crackers’ a–,” Adams says in the video.

“Man, I was unbelievable in the Police Department with 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement,” he continued, in reference to a group he co-founded in the ’90s. “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.”

In response, Mr. Terrell called Adams an “honorary member of the Squad” and tweeted: “I will not shut up about racist Mayor Eric Adams. Look at my tweets since January 1, 2022. I saw a ‘rat’ from day one! With the video tape of his comments, I could convict Adams in a court of law as a racist!!!”

“Attention racist mayor Eric Adams of New York City. Your apology for making racist statements against white people is REJECTED,” Leo said in a corresponding tweet. “You are only apologizing because you got caught. Your apology is insincere. I’ll wait until you resign as mayor.”
