Rep. Perry Buck and Sen. Vicki Marble kept from introducing resolutions honoring MLK Jr. because they are white
[Complete Colorado] Denver ‐On a day created to honor the man who spoke about not judging others by the color of their skin but rather by the content of their character, Rep. Perry Buck, R-Windsor, was denied the opportunity to introduce and sponsor her own resolution honoring the late Martin Luther King, Jr. because she is white.

Buck sponsored and introduced the resolution in the House of Representatives last year while Sen. Vicki Marble, R-Fort Collins introduced it and sponsored it in the Senate.

However, this year, both women were told they would not be allowed to because they were not black, Buck said.

"This is not about you," Buck said she was told by a member of the black caucus, whom she did not want to identify. "This is about our heritage."

Buck questioned whether King would want to make this about race or unity.

"It’s just very, very sad that we can’t come together," Buck said. "It’s sad that we can’t rise together over this angry hate."

Marble was unable to be reached for comment and Rep. Leslie Herod, D-Denver, who is the Chairwoman of the Black Democratic Legislative Caucus, did not immediately return phone calls seeking comment. Complete Colorado will update if more information becomes available.

Rep. Lori Saine, R-Mead, supported both King and Buck during floor speeches on King, calling King a radical truth teller, who spoke of love.

#2 The answer is simple, any one identifying as something other than 'human' will immediately lose their citizenship and be deported to some nice rock out in the north atlantic. All their possessions will be confiscated and sold to pay any debts they owe.

#3 They're, like me, are all Americans, period!

But do they considers themselves to be Americans? Outside of when it's time to collect some bennies?

And if not, then why should anyone else?

#4 As the old saying goes, "Now that cancer is cured and crime and poverty are eliminated, our politicians can finally move on to the important stuff..."

Obviously such thoughts are too racist nowadays.
