We Demand Apology from card-playing Representatives

This petition had 1,778 supporters


The Protest lodged against Minnesota House Minority Leader Melissa Hortman is sheer hypocrisy!!

Rep. Hortman was not divisive. The white male Representatives were divisive by separating themselves off into the retiring room, instead of listening to the speeches of their female colleagues of color!

The behavior of the white males should be admonished for being discourteous to the female speakers of color who were giving heartfelt speeches on an important issue.

It is undignified of the white male Representatives to be playing cards in a separate chamber when their colleagues are giving speeches that they, no doubt, worked very hard to write.

No, Rep. Melissa Hortman should not utter one syllable of an apology.

Rather, the white males owe us all an apology for playing cards instead of carrying out their duties faithfully and diligently.

Laws are being made by those white males and we need them to pay attention!
