Remember the Colorado legislator who claimed minorities suffer from higher rates of poverty because of fried chicken and porno?
One of her colleagues decided to show solidarity with her today by bringing fried chicken to the follow-up meeting of the legislative task force. You know, to make sure it got off to a good start.
[W]ith the task force meeting for the first time since the flap, state Rep. Lori Saine (R) staged what she called a “silent protest” against the uproar generated by Marble’s remarks by placing a box of Popeye’s fried chicken on her desk.
Yeah, that’s the ticket. Support your colleague’s right to say racist things, and denounce her critics, by displaying a box of fried chicken.
