Black Detroit officials outraged at 'Sambo Awards'

Detroit Police Chief James Craig took issue with the award. "I can tell you: I don’t care if it’s coming from the mouth of a white man or a black man — racist is racist, and I’m going to call it out when I see it," he said.Detroit — Two black public officials say they’re outraged after they were given “Sambo Awards” last week at a dinner honoring former Detroit mayor Coleman Young.
Detroit Water and Sewerage Department director Gary Brown and police chief James Craig were given the top two “Sambo Awards” at a dinner Thursday hosted by the “Call 'Em Out Coalition” and its president, African-American activist Agnes Hitchcock.
Hitchcock, who attracted national media attention in 2007 when she was arrested and fined for throwing grapes at Detroit school board members, insists the annual awards are meant to shed light on policies that harm the city’s black community.
Brown and Craig say the awards are racially offensive.
