Alphonso David alleges racist treatment at the Human Rights Campaign in post-firing interview

LGBTQ Nation reports that former Human Rights Campaign (HRC) President Alphonso David has opened up about the fallout from the investigation into former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) that eventually led to his own firing last week. David sat down with out MSNBC anchor Jonathan Capehart in an appearance on the Sunday Show to discuss where he is going from here. David alleges that he was treated differently based on his race at the organization, citing past presidents and leaders who were white that were not being pushed to resign after controversies followed them. This marks the first time that David has spoken publicly since his firing was first reported last weekend in the New York Times, hours before some employees at the LGBTQ organization were even told. HRC COO Joni Madison has become the acting president in his place.
