NPR Slammed Over Story Highlighting ‘Disappointment’ Over Boston Electing Asian Woman Mayor

NPR took heat Tuesday after its report that Asian American Michelle Wu’s, D.election win in Boston was considered a “disappointment” to some for being chosen over Black candidates. “Michelle Wu, an Asian American, is the first woman and first person of color elected to lead the city. While many are hailing it as a turning point, others see it as more of a disappointment that the three Black candidates couldn’t even come close,” NPR tweeted. It deleted the tweet after online criticism, although the thrust of the story remained the same.
