President Rafael Correa insisted this Saturday, December 13 in his criticism against the Vice Mayor of Guayaquil, Domenica Tabacchi, after the controversy aroused by his expressions during the last weekly address. But he said his message was distorted and he expressed no discrimination against her.
Correa said that his message was the rejection of people who feel superior by the color of skin, eyes or family name. “That’s been the story of our elites.”
“Now if I call Coloradita (blondie in Spanish) to someone, ohh the discriminated me for being Coloradita! How good is that now people is discriminated for being Coloradita, because before we were discriminated for being Negritos (Niggas in Spanish). How good is a country without discrimination and you know I do not discriminate,” Correa said.
