A call for an apology and widespread condemnation met Doug Ford's comments about the black community on Friday.

"That's disgusting and insulting," University of Toronto Professor Rinaldo Walcott said in response to Ford's comments that he has supported the black community by taking children to his cottage.

Ford's comments were made in response to questions about why he isn't attending Ontario's first black community provincial leaders debate.

Ford said that he was the the most supportive politician of the black community, second only to his late brother Rob Ford. The proof he pointed reporters to on Thursday afternoon was that he had taken 80 predominantly black kids to his cottage over the last three years.
