Arizona Lawmaker Makes use of Racist Slur and Requires Black Consultant to ‘Be Sat Down’ and Not ‘Be Allowed to Communicate’

One Republican legislature used a racist bow on the floor of the Arizona state legislature and then asked another black legislator to sit down and not speak.

On Tuesday, Republican Travis Grantham interrupted Democrat Reginald Bolding, who was delivering a speech against a voter suppression law.

“Personally, I feel that the motives of the members, including myself, about people of color, black people, whatever that person wants to highlight, has been indicted in relation to their eligibility and I think this is wrong “said Grantham, who is 42 -years old, charged.

“I think he should sit down and not be allowed to speak,” he added, seemingly treating his colleague as a child.

The term “colored people” is racist, a bow and comes from the Jim Crow era of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Grantham cited a house rule that no member should “use language that is personally offensive”.

Arizona takes over the voting rights. According to AZ MP Reginald Bolding (D), a new law makes it more difficult for people of color to vote.

Rep. Travis Grantham (R) responds, complaining that Boldings “were charged with motives … relating to people of color, black people, whatever …”
