Oh, please tell me this quote is inaccurate

From the Virginian Pilot:
[Portsmouth Mayor James] Holley said the proposed hotel and conference center is a good project. The city needs 25 more developments like it, he said.

“If it fails, well, that’s her failure; it’s not yours,” Holley said.

He said the Renaissance hotel and the Lucas project would attract two different groups of people.

The city needs a hotel that targets blacks, he said.

“It’s got my black picture in the lobby, but it’s a white hotel,” Holley said of the Renaissance.
I'm so stunned, I'm not even sure what to write.
