President-elect Obama's Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel has apologized for a racial slur made by his father Benjamin.
Last week the father of Rahm Emanuel stated in an interview with an Israeli paper, “Obviously he’ll influence the president to be pro-Israel. Why wouldn’t he? What is he, an Arab? He’s not going to be mopping floors at the White House.”
The Arab-American Anti-Discrimination called for Emanuel to renounce his father's statement, which he has now done.
Ibrahim Hooper, with the Council on American Islamic Relations, spoke with KBOO's Jenka Soderberg on the issue.

Fox responded with an attack on the media watchgroup, saying that Fox had no control over what its pundits said - in this case, referring to their own employees Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity.
Peter Hart, from Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting, says that the reaction of Fox executives to the accusation of bias was typical.
