What's more, an unrepentant Johnson angrily declared on September 21:</p><blockquote><p>There will be no retraction. The quote is disputed, but it has not been proven false. And there are plenty of other racist quotes that you seem to be just gliding right past that are NOT disputed. </p></blockquote>
