Holy Shit! Sally Kern (Evil Oklahoman) apologizes for something she said
http://newsok.com/kern-apologizes-for-comments-on-minor...

After Rep. Richard Morrissette, D-Oklahoma City, argued against the measure partly because one in four black males are in prison or on some type of probation, Kern said, Is this just because they're black that they're in prison or could it be because they didn't want to work hard in school?

I taught school for 20 years and I saw a lot of people of color who didn't want to work as hard, she said, reading from notes. They wanted it given to them.

Kern said she didn't worry about equal pay during her career. She said some studies show women are underpaid, but when actual hours worked and work hazards are factored in, women earn more than men.

I'm not saying women don't work hard, she said. Women like ... to have a moderate work life with plenty of time for spouse and children and other things like that. They work very hard but sometimes they aren't willing to commit their whole life to their job like a lot of men do.



See you can say what you want about the gays in oklahoma but women and minorities, not so much
