Colorado Legislator: Poverty Higher Among ‘Black Race’ Because They Eat Too Much Chicken

Colorado’s Republican [go figure]
State Senator Vicki Marble

On Wednesday Colorado’s Republican State Senator Vicki Marble’s limbic system authored this utterly bigoted filth at a meeting of that state’s Economic Opportunity Poverty Reduction Task Force:

When you look at life expectancy, there are problems in the black race: sickle-cell anemia is something that comes up, diabetes is something that’s prevalent in the genetic makeup and you just can’t help it… Although I’ve got to say, I’ve never had better barbecue and better chicken and ate better in my life than when you go down south and you — I mean love it and everybody loves it. The Mexican diet in Mexico with all of the fresh vegetables. And you go down there and they’re much thinner than when they come up here… they change their diet.

Smarter people across this country have been heard to say that it’s time there was a conversation about “race” in America. I’m not so sure that’d be a good idea. With so many brain stems contributing to such a ‘conversation’ that effort might just be still-born.
The immortal words of James Tiberius Kirk spring to mind: “Beam me up, Scotty.”
