“Go back to Iowa! You go back to Ohio! New York City belongs to the people that [were] here and made New York City what it is,” Adams, an ex-cop, said to applause. “I know I’m a New Yorker. I protected this city. I have a right to put my voice in how this city is run.”

High rents and gentrification are likely to play a significant role in the 2021 mayoral race. But Adams’s remarks were striking for his all but explicitly racial tone.

Called out for the comments on Twitter, Adams’s account replied, “Let me be clear: Anyone can be a New Yorker, but not everyone comes to our city with the spirit of being part of our city.

"I have a problem with that, and I’m unapologetic in asking more of our new arrivals to communities who were once waking up to gunshots and not alarm clocks,” the account stated.

Adam’s roughly 10-minute-long remarks started out with him decrying the way authorities have historically treated the cities and suburbs, saying opioid abuse and shootings only came to be considered crises when they affected the latter locale.

The BP also made an aside about rats, which he recently said should be killed en masse, drawing protest from animal rights’ groups.

“We had these characters come up and say, ‘How dare you kill these rats?’ What the hell is wrong with you?" Adams exclaimed. “You are saying that the rats are more important than our children!”

Rep. Adriano Espaillat made his share of inflammatory remarks at Monday’s ceremony, hosted by NAN’s founder, the Rev. Al Sharpton.

“Affordability and gentrification is ripping our neighborhood apart!” the upper Manhattan congressman said.

“Harlem is not the Harlem that we may want it to be,” he added. “We’re not against people coming in, but we’re about keeping the people that are there.
