FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - The Fort Worth Human Relations Commission members have voted to oust one of their own who has been criticized for what some consider derogatory and racist Facebook posts. 

Mike Steele did not attend last night's meeting where the rest of the Commission agreed to recommend he be removed by the City Council next month.

A TCU professor has publicized screen grabs showing some of Steele's social media posts which his critics call racist and misogynist.

Steele denies that emphatically saying he has "followed the policies and procedures set forth by the City" and he does not intend to resign.
