Kansas Rep. John Bradford, a Lansing Republican, shared a racist image to his Facebook page this week.
Or wait. Is it really racist? Some agree.
Never miss a local story.
Or, hey, making we’re all just being a little too politically correct, right?
Well, I’ll weigh in with my original contention.
A meme “depicting a mustachioed man in a sombrero and a deformed image of President Obama” and “accompanied with this message: “MEXICAN WORDS OF THE DAY: PIZZA CHIP & BELIEVING” is, indeed, racist.
The image is no longer in Bradford’s feed, so he apparently does not think it was a good thing to have this linked to his account.
And on Thursday afternoon, after the Kansas press got hold of this story, Bradford apologized. Kind of.
“I did not create the image, but I did share it, which was in bad taste. I regret that decision,” he said.
But maybe you disagree.
Glad we have that First Amendment thing for people to actually try to defend this.
