The Oklahoma City Republican (and preacher's wife!) has been criticized in Oklahoma and across the nation for stating—on the floor of the House of Representatives—that blacks don't study hard because they think the government will take care of them. (Of course!)
Oh, and women—"they tend to spend more time at home with their families," Kern said. (Girls just want to be moms, after all.)
The Tulsa World was having none of this nonsense, publishing an editorial blasting Kern for reverting to the racism and sexism of the 1950s. The paper also pointed out (correctly) Kern's hypocrisy:
Sally Kern, the proud Christian and wife of a minister, continues to say and do unChristinalike things.
The House ought to take action and punish Kern.
In the meantime, all we can say is shame, shame on you, Rep. Kern.
We're not so keen on punishing Kern, a dim-witted and thin-skinned person who loves to play the victim. But we agree that Kern needs to be shamed for pretending that all blacks are lazy and all women just love to cook and clean.
Those are tired stereotypes that should have been dispelled long ago. Sally Kern needs to figure that out.
