Naomi Parker, a friend of Galatis who is running for commissioner, said that he should resign:
“This is probably the hardest night, Ted, but I need you to resign,” Parker said. “My kids have played at your pool. I’ve eaten food out of your house, and all it took was for me to make you angry and I would have been called a n****r. It’s not ‘the n-word.’ The word is n****r. It’s not ‘the n-word.’”
Galatis’ parking lot racism comes on the heels of Narvell Benning being verbally assaulted by Janelle Ambrosia in a Dollar General parking lot in Cheektowaga, New York.
Benning recorded the exchange, which goes on for approximately four minutes and, during that time, Ambrosia loudly flings the “n-word” at him and eventually threatens to throw her coffee on him.
“You’re a n–ger!”
“I called you a n–ger. You’re a n–ger! Nasty f–king n–ger!”

The incident also comes a month after Robert Copeland, 82, the former police commissioner Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, resigned after news that he called President Barack Obama spread like wildfire.
“I believe I did use the “n-word” in reference to the current occupant of the Whitehouse,” Copeland said in an email to his fellow police commissioners. “For this, I do not apologize – he meets and exceeds my criteria for such.”
