Vice-Chair Responds to Racist Post from Kansas Lawmaker

Topeka, KS – Representative John Bradford, R-Lansing, posted a derogatory picture on Facebook that depicted a mustachioed man in a sombrero and a deformed image of President Obama. The image is accompanied with this message: “MEXICAN WORDS OF THE DAY: PIZZA CHIP & BELIEVING. THIS PIZZA CHIP WILL BELIEVING THE WHITE HOUSE SOON,” the message says in reference to Obama, mocking a stereotypical Mexican accent.

I’m appalled and offended by the disrespect that Representative Bradford has shown not only to the President, but also to the African American and Hispanic community.

This type of ignorance makes me question whether Representative Bradford truly has the best interest of all Kansans. Kansans should not have to tolerate this type of bigoted mentality from anyone, especially an elected official.
