“US ambassador to Britain Woody Johnson urged State Dept investigators against publicly reporting allegations that he made sexually or racially inappropriate comments to embassy staff, according to a report released on Wednesday.” 1/2
Holy fuck. “One Black female diplomat told colleagues that Mr. Johnson disparaged her efforts to schedule events for Black History Month, asking her whether he would have to address an audience that was ‘just a bunch of Black people.’“
The phrase “who later left the Foreign Service” just kills me.
The correct reaction to the stories here is for Johnston to resign and for his supervisors to do some serious soul searching about how they allowed this to happen. It is not for Johnston to watch a video. For shame, .
Woody Johnson tried to scrub reports of his sexist and racist comments from a State Dept. inspection of the US embassy in London. He failed, but State seems unlikely to investigate further. W/⁦
