Asian Community Upset, Petition For Apology

Lubbock Power and Light's Director is getting pressure from Lubbock's Asian Community.

Carroll McDonald is accused of calling a member of his management team a "Chinaman" during a closed City Council meeting on April 10th. Reportedly, his remark was aimed at LP&L's Chief Operations Officer, Gary Zheng.

Members of Lubbock's Asian community are calling for a public apology in the form of a petition. "He said something to the effect he did not understand why other people were upset. So we just wanted to say why we are concerned, why a lot of us are upset by this event," said Yuan Shoe who is leading the petition.

Shoe and his associates will present the petition to the council Thursday morning. They will ask for an apology and ask that the council make sure a similar incident does not happen again.

The meeting is open to the public.
