“City Councilman Jumaane Williams has been targeted with racist hate mail since he refused in protest to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance. The Brooklyn Democrat got one letter calling him a ‘fucking plantation monkey.’ ‘Plantation owner should have aborted your great-grandmother. You sit during the pledge — well hope you have an accident that causes such physical trauma you will not be able to stand or kneel,’ read the letter obtained by the Daily News.”
