NAACP Wants Oklahoma Lawmaker Sally Kern To Resign

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People wants Oklahoma lawmaker Sally Kern to resign following her comments that African-Americans face disproportionate rates of imprisonment because they neglect their studies. Kern, who in the past has compared LGBT people to terrorists and cancer, made the remarks as her state engages in a debate about whether to end affirmative action. Oklahoma lawmakers approved an amendment for consideration by voters in the 2012 election.
