Is Sharron Cooks the right person for the job?

This petition had 3 supporters

After over a year of people pointing fingers at white bar owners calling them racist, the Office of LGBT affairs in Philadelphia was restaffed and a commission was created to address this.  

Now the Chairwoman of the Commission on LGBT Affairs Philadelphia, Sharron Cooks, has posted the following on her Facebook page:  

"If you take "one drop" of any person of color's blood and combined that with blood of non people of color, you'll always be able to tell.  Which illustrates our superior genetics" 

The ironic thing about her statement is that she was the first transgender woman of color to be a delegate for the DNC and has become someone to take notice in Philadelphia and now she goes and makes this horrible racist comment.

Is she truly the right person for this job?  Mayor James Kenney and Amber Hikes, the new Director of LGBT affairs, needs to address. We can't have a woman heading a commission who herself is making racial comments such as this!!
