Houston Investigates Claim of Racist Tweet by Firefighter

The family of a drowning victim is waiting for an apology after they say a Houston firefighter made a racist comment about their loved one on Facebook, reports Click2Houston.com.

Gracie Gonzalez’s father, Victor, was spending the day out on Lake Houston Friday afternoon fishing and swimming with a buddy.
