Although she is a Representative, and for Oklahoma City.
The Tulsa World reported on her reprehensible remarks yesterday in a piece titled: “Oklahoma House sends affirmative action ban to voters.”
From The Tulsa World:
Rep. Sally Kern, R-Oklahoma City, said minorities earn less than white people because they don’t work as hard and have less initiative.
“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.”
Kern said women earn less than men because “they tend to spend more time at home with their families.”
Well Rep. Kern, I think YOU should earn less money – not because you’re a woman, but because you appear to be a racist bigot.
