Hatemonger Sally Kern Strikes Again

I so wish that Brittany Novotny had beaten hatemonger Oklahoma state Rep. Sally Kern (R-Oklahoma City) last November.   Not only would Brittany be doing a much better job representing the people of HD 84, those folks would have a representative that has light years more smarts and class than Ms. Kern.

Ms. Kern is not just content to piss off the gay and trans communities any more, she now targeting her bigotry at the African American community in the state of Oklahoma.

"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.
She also parted her lips to say that minorities earn less than white people because they don’t work as hard and have less initiative.

Really?  You wanna cough up the money for the 246 years of unpaid labor you owe us 'lazy Black people'?  

She made those remarks as the Republicans in the Oklahoma legislature pushed a constitutional amendment designed to wipe out affirmative action programs in the state.   It will be conveniently timed to appear on the 2012 ballot even though no preferences are currently done for jobs, contracts or college admissions in Oklahoma. 

The proposed amendment has already passed the Oklahoma Senate and passed the house on a 59-14 vote with 28 members either abstaining or not voting..

Oh well, the one thing about Sally Kern getting another term in office is that other states can always use her bigoted soundbites as part of their strategy to keep companies from relocating to Oklahoma
