Riordan apologizes for remark

LOS ANGELES, California (AP)—State Education Secretary Richard Riordan jokingly told a child her name, Isis, meant “stupid dirty girl,” prompting the head of the California NAACP on Thursday to call for his resignation.

Riordan, the wealthy former Los Angeles mayor known for his support of public schools, startled even friends last week with the comments at a promotional event for summer reading at the Santa Barbara library.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, his longtime friend, called Riordan’s statement to the girl “unacceptable in any context” but gave no hint his job was in danger.

But Alice Huffman, president of the California chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said Thursday that Riordan “is not suitable to lead education in our state” and should be removed.

The conversation, videotaped by KEYT-TV, took place July 1. The girl, 6-year-old Isis D’Luciano, asked Riordan if he knew her name meant “Egyptian goddess.”

Riordan replied, “It means stupid dirty girl.”
