Rep. Sally Kern, R-Oklahoma City

OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma Republican Sally Kern apologized Thursday for statements she made against women and Black people during a debate on affirmative action.

NEWSOK reports:

“I want to humbly apologize for my statements last night about African-Americans and women,” Kern, R-Oklahoma City, said in a statement. “I believe that our government should not provide preference based on race or gender. I misspoke while trying to convey this point last night during debate.”

President of the Oklahoma chapter of NAACP, Anthony Douglas, said the apology was not enough.“You cannot commit racism and then offer an apology for the racist statement that you make,” he said. “The citizens of Oklahoma, the constituents can no longer stand by and allow this type of action to happen.”
