Arizona Lawmaker Uses Racist Slur and Calls for Black Representative to ‘Be Sat Down’ and Not ‘Be Allowed to Speak’


A Republican state lawmaker used a racist slur on the floor of the Arizona state legislature and then called for another lawmaker, who is Black, to be ordered to “be sat down” and “not be allowed to speak.”

“I feel personally that motives were arraigned of members, including myself, with regards to colored people, Black people, whatever people this individual wants to single out, in their ability to vote, and I think it’s incorrect,” Grantham, who is 42-years old, charged.

1. Typical Arizona GQP legislator.

I'm still trying to work out what he meant. "Arraigned?"
Our legislators in Arizona are remarkable in their levels both ignorance and corruption. Arizona needs to do better and slough off the republican lowlives.
