Oklahoma governor booted from Tulsa Race Massacre commission

Source: AP

TULSA, Okla. — The commission formed to observe the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre announced Friday that it had booted Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt from his seat on the panel a week after he signed a bill outlawing the teaching of some race and racism concepts in public schools.

A statement from the commission did not indicate the reason for the parting, and a spokeswoman said the commission had no further comment. However, commission project manager Phil Armstrong this week had sharply criticized the Republican governor for signing a bill into law that prohibits the teaching of so-called critical race theory in Oklahoma schools.

"The 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commissioners met Tuesday and agreed through consensus to part ways with Governor Stitt," the commission's statement said.

It went on to say that while the commission "is disheartened to part ways with Governor Stitt, we are thankful for the things accomplished together." It also said, "No elected officials, nor representatives of elected officials, were involved in this decision."

2. K&R

Good.

If a person can't acknowledge the full scope and range of systemic racism, even though they might mouth words of support over atrocities such as the Tulsa Race Massacre (Or Rosewood or the Opelousas massacre or the Red Summer or the Ocoee Massacre or the Atlanta Race Riots or the Thibodaux Massacre or the on and on the list goes), they don't really understand or care - if they did, they would want to know the full story, the complete history. They would want to understand. They would acknowledge the generational damage caused by slavery/racism and its continuing harm.

They would listen. They would learn. They would accept, that yes - systemic racism exist and it is woven into the very fabric of America.

(Black codes, Jim Crow, red-lining, voter suppression, inequities in healthcare, education, housing, employment. Disparities in the justice system, police brutality, existing while black/brown. And the list goes on and on)

3. Governor Stitt will be happy to go back to "harvesting" more bears, if the good lord's willin'.



He will use the extra time to look for more liberal bears.



He prefers the method which will cause far more suffering.



The animals are lucky to escape a world where such sadistic filth is even possible.

7. Oh god, he's one of those

If I knew nothing else about him, that photo would be enough to disqualify him for anything. That is vile and disgusting.

9. Here's hoping a bear "harvests" him.

You see, he "harvests" with a bow in order to be extra super cruel. A good mauling is in order in my mind.

5. That didn't take long.

He signed the new law. He is not respectable and I hope he is humiliated, but I doubt it. He will probably get a hero medal from MTG. Asshole.
