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.
