Oklahoma Republican Says Blacks don’t work as hard and have less initiative than whites

The Oklahoma House of Representatives has approved a proposed constitutional amendment that would eliminate affirmative action in state government. Just last week President Obama revealed his long form birth certificate in an attempt to satisfy birthers, which it did not. And from sea to shining sea, republican politicians are showing their innate racist tendencies. This past spring in Georgia, a Republican pushed a bill to make abortions a crime punishable by life imprisonment or death. Now, the stage has been set in Oklahoma, where a proposed amendment passed by a vote of 59-14 Wednesday evening, with 28 members absent or not voting, to ban Affirmative action.

What makes this worse are the beliefs voiced by Rep. Sally Kern, R-Oklahoma City who suggested that minorities, namely African Americans earn less than white people because they don’t work as hard and have less initiative than whites.

Rep. Kern added to her inflammatory and ignorant remarks by saying, “We have a high percentage of blacks in prison, and that’s tragic, but are they in prison just because they are black or because they don’t want to study as hard in school? I’ve taught school, and I saw a lot of people of color who didn’t study hard because they said the government would take care of them.”

It is obvious that Republicans, as well as their Tea party constituents desire to “take America back,” which means restoring the legacy of white power, white supremacy and discrimination for the benefits of whites at the expense of others including Spanish speaking immigrants, Muslims and African Americans.

They desire to turn the clock back far enough where Blacks will not be able to vote or hold office. Kern and Trump feel that the solution to America in the age of Obama is to discriminate more and make it hard to discern any distinction between a "birther" and a "racist.” They fail to see that they are the problem and that if Oklahoma is like the US Congress, as legislators, they work less than the average American, yet receive a FULL benefits package. Republicans claim that playing the mythical race card is bad politics but yet they live on divide and conquer.

Where is the Black militia?

Who is doing the groundwork for our stance against this latest move back attempt?

I'm really tired of conservative women hiding out and not stepping up to us with their bullshyt. I bet if the room had been filled with Black women and men, she wouldn't of said a word. It's easy to be a racist in the comfort of your support circle. This next generation are punk asses for real. Instead of being out of the closet and in our faces. They use e-mail and meeting to do their dirty work. They when they get put on blast, they start out by apologzing for their remarks. I say, instead of being sorry, just be yourself. This would eliminate us having to waste a lot of our time discovering their asses. We can just recognize what mindset they work out of and go with whatever counter seems appropriate.

I would love for her to meet my mother and say this crap to her. I have no doubt that my mom would verbally bitch slap this notion out of her head. said...
