Okla. Legislator Slights Blacks, Women In Debate - FOX News FOX NEWS? Gasp! In 2008, Kern drew criticism after saying gay people posed a greater threat to the country than terrorists. April 28, 2011 - 8:46 PM Kern, R-Oklahoma City, said minorities earn less than white people and women earn less than men because they dont work as hard and have less initiative. I taught school for 20 years and I saw a lot of people of color who didnt want to work as hard, she said, reading from notes. They wanted it given to them. Kern said she didnt worry about equal pay during her career. She said some studies show women are underpaid, but when actual hours worked and work hazards are factored in, women earn more than men. Women dont want to work as hard as a man, Kern said. Women tend to think about spending more time with their families. Racist and Bigoted Comments from GOP Legislator Sally Kern Regarding Minorities ------------------------- Another one that will probably end up in the Romper Room. Hey, I don't make this stuff up. I just want Republicans to explain why they feel this way and debate the facts.
