At a celebration to mark the groundbreaking of a new college building in NYC yesterday, City Councilman Charles Barron was heckled by a member of the university's Board of Trustees.
The coucilman accused Mayor Michael Bloomberg and others of "disrespecting" him and the students who had campaigned for the building, which will replace one damaged in the Sept. 11 attacks.
Jeffrey Wiesenfeld, a trustee of the City University of New York didn't let Barron finish.
"When was the last time you respected somebody? You're a disgrace!" he shouted.
Barron went in on him, calling the board member "a sickening racist."
