REPORT: Tlaib rages against event in Detroit as ‘racist bulls—‘
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D) took to Twitter on Wednesday to call out a bar crawl event in Detroit with a theme some have condemned for embracing “racist imagery.”
“This is some racist bullshit (yep I cursed again…get over it!) right here,” Tlaib tweeted in reference to the event. “Who is sponsoring it?”
The article goes on to state the following:
“@onemichigan can help organize some of us to call it out. Our kids and families can’t be exposed to these types of disgusting events,” the congresswoman continued, calling on One Michigan, which is a local organization that works to provide resources to immigrant communities, for help in condemning the event.
Her tweet came in response to another post shared by Raquel Castañeda-López, who is a member of the City Council of Detroit, that also condemned the event.
