Fla. state Republican senator faces calls to resign after using n-word

40 posts in this topic

A Republican state senator from Miami is facing pressure to resign after he used the n-word to criticize several of his colleagues during an alcohol-fueled rant in front of two black lawmakers.

Over drinks at a private club in downtown Tallahassee, State Sen. Frank Artiles referred to six white senators as “n‑‑‑ers” and spewed other obscenities while complaining about the chamber’s GOP leadership, local media reported Tuesday.

Artiles reportedly fired off the slurs in a heated conversation Monday night with Democratic senators Audrey Gibson and Perry Thurston, both of whom are black.

The three were talking at the members-only Governor’s Club near the state capitol when Artiles called Senate President Joe Negron, a Republican, a vulgar word for female genitalia and said he had won his position because “six n‑‑‑ers” had elected him, according to the Herald.

Very deplorable indeed. Just like the former grand wizard of the KKK, turned US Senator,who did something similar in 2001. I condemn both. Did you defend Senator "Sheets" at the time? Edited by Manny

I think we can safely blame Obama for the racial hatred in this country.

 

In all fairness, the racism has always been there, but 8 years of Obama helped to cement it, nurture it...then when Trump came along, all the racists felt safe to finally come out of the closet. They had their boy in the WH covering their backs.

Obama poured fuel on the fire of racism. He should have waited for the facts before making Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Freddie Gray into martyrs.

Is this the "Obama made me racist" excuse?

And your rules are:  everything is either a black person's fault or a democrat's fault and it really makes your day if it is a black Democrat you can blame.

He's kind of right with the "2 sets of rules" thing. The Grand Wizard had his gaff in 2001, 16 years ago. Of course the daggers were out for Jeff Sessions "racist joke" told 30 years ago. The only difference was the R or D after their name. It's a fair statement. Both sides will say "that was different".

The difference is some people have evolved while others have not. Some still believe that there is superiority in certain races.
