Black ministers demand apology from Keating

(Oklahoma City-AP) -- A group of black ministers demanded an apology from Governor Keating in vain today for accusations of racism.

A dispute between Keating and Senator Angela Monson derailed his nominee for commerce secretary. Russell Perry, a black newspaper publisher from Oklahoma City, had been nominated by Keating.

The Reverend J-A Reed Junior says the meeting was cordial. But Reed says Keating told him he had nothing to apologize for.

Reed and other officials of the Baptist Ministers Association criticized Keating earlier at a news conference.

The ministers are upset over Keating and Perry's comments that Monson is doing the bidding of the white male Senate leadership by bottling up Perry's nomination in her committee.
