CO State Reps Not Allowed To Introduce Resolution Honoring Dr. King Because They Are White

Yesterday was Martin Luther King Jr day. A day to honor someone who stood up against racism, stood FOR equality, and made it clear that he envisioned a day when the color of one’s skin didn’t matter. Unfortunately, yesterday, some threw that lesson under the bus. The Colorado Black Democratic Legislative Caucus refused to let Rep. Perry Buck and Sen. Vicki Marble offer a resolution honoring Dr. King. Why? Because they are WHITE.

On a day created to honor the man who spoke about not judging others by the color of their skin rather than the content of character, Rep. Perry Buck, R-Windsor, was denied the opportunity to introduce and sponsor her own resolution honoring the late Martin Luther King, Jr. because she was white.

Buck sponsored and introduced the bill in the House of Representatives last year while Sen. Vicki Marble, R-Fort Collins introduced it and sponsored it in the Senate.

However, this year, both women were told they would not be allowed to because they were not black, Buck said.

“This is not about you,” Buck said she was told by a member of the black caucus, whom she did not want to identify. “This is about our heritage.”

Buck questioned whether King would want to make this about race or unity.

“It’s just very, very sad that we can’t come together,” Buck said. “It’s sad that we can’t rise together over this angry hate.”

This is just unreal. Yes, Colorado has turned blue since the 2018 mid-terms, but did they have to turn STUPID?? I guess so.

Perhaps those in Colorado’s Black Democratic Legislative Caucus need a refresher course in Dr. King?

From the transcript of his speech:

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”

~And

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

Question to those in Colorado’s Black Democratic Legislative Caucus, why did you judge Rep. Buck and Sen. Marble by their skin color? Dr. King wanted that judgement to go away from our lives. Why are you bringing it back? Look at these quotes.

Can you honestly say that your actions yesterday were right? Can you honestly say that your actions brought about something positive for others? Can you, members of CO’s Black Democratic Legislative Caucus honestly say that you conducted yourselves with character, integrity and that your actions brought about change for the good of all?

Sadly I don’t think so. White people are yelled at time and again that we are not supposed to judge others by the color of their skin. Yet that is exactly what members of the Caucus did yesterday. And, according to Joe Biden, white Americans are the ONLY ones on the hook for rooting out systemic racism.

But isn’t what the Black Democratic Legislative Caucus was doing?  Representative Perry Buck and Senator Vicki Marble brought forth a resolution that would honor Dr. King and all he’s done for this country. That’s not racism. That’s the very opposite. Yet the Caucus said NOPE, because the women who offered the resolution are white. Exactly who is judging whom by skin color?

Rep. Buck’s response was stellar. 

Buck said at the end of the day, everybody bleeds the same color and she hopes this is a lesson for everyone as they move forward though the session to embrace the message of Dr. King rather than ignore it.

“I will continue honoring an incredible man,” Buck said. “He was just amazing. At the end of the day, I love all my colleagues as my bothers and sisters.”

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr would be gravely disappointed in the Caucus’ actions, as am I, yet I’d daresay he’d applaud Perry for her response to this mess.

    THESE are the true racists.

    Colorado has turned blue since the 2018 mid-terms
    Colorado has been blue for a while now. One of those cases where one portion of the state (Denver and Boulder) holds a lot of the power. Their legislature has officially turned full blue in 2018, but … Hickenlooper. ‘Nough said.

    Why are you bringing it back?
    Because –POWER. It hasn’t been about equality for a long time. Sadly.

    The black political powers today are much more Huey Newton and much less MLK.

      Blacks cant let racism die because it fuels their anger at history! History can’t be changed and if we don’t want to repeat it we need to change our attitudes and deal with life in the present day!!! And if blacks want to be treated better then they need to change several statistics:Blacks commit approximately 80% of the crimes in the U.S., they have the highest number of unwed mothers. they dominate the4 welfare roles. The Black community needs to raise their children to obey the law and be responsible citizens!!!

  • Socratease says:

    “And that is something that I must say to my people who stand on the worn threshold which leads into the palace of Justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.

    “We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protests to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again, we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force. The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to distrust all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny.

    “They have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. \\’e cannot walk alone.”

    “This is just unreal. Yes, Colorado has turned blue since the 2018 mid-terms, but did they have to turn STUPID?? I guess so.”… They’re really the same thing Nina.. As GWB pointed out, Denver, Boulder, and Pueblo, (as well as all the dumbass college kids in Fort Collins) control the whole state.. For anyone that hasn’t been paying attention, this kind of racist stupidity, along with Chicago style violence and California style taxes is what you get when elect Demonrats… As soon as I have enough years to retire, I’m leaving this once fine state for one the Dims haven’t yet ruined…

    There is no systemic racism.

    • richard says:

      Black Democratic Legislative Caucus need to be shut down . damn racist terrorists is all they are, prosecute them all and run them off the dole,,,

  • Boat Guy says:

    So how is it that some “caucus” can negate legislators introduction of a bill? Am I missing some procedural point here?
    Tell the caucus “thank you for sharing your opinion” and drive on!

  • Jhonny says:

    “This is about our heritage.”

    Really? What heritage? Your “culture” didn’t even have the wheel.

  • gmmay70 says:

    I know correlation isn’t causation, but there’s definitely a link there.

    • John Sprague says:

      Post it again……..Seems since CO was one of the first to OK pot for all, probably sponsored by the COBC…that state has been going down. Tax base leaving in droves just like all other D controlled states….sanctuary city/states and pot laws. Those droves are heading east mainly to Texas and Florida, for obvious reasons! Can’t find a D anywhere in the NW panhandle of our state. Tax Base here exploding! YALL COME!

  • Judy Stinger says:

    Dr. King is turning over in his grave. He fought for civil rights in the nonviolent way and was successful in bringing people together and not segregated is which is what Liberals/progressives are doing right now in the United States. We’ve come to a point America or perhaps we need to face the facts that we need to segregate. Each ethnic group lives in itheir own community, is self-sustaining, creates & works at jobs, oays taxes, pays their own bills for their own education, healthcare, housing, clothes, food and police. At no time will any money be comingled between the races. That should make everyone happy and end all the division between the American people that the liberals/progressives encourage and want

  • John Sprague says:

    Didn’t, or wasn’t CO, the first to OK pot for everyone (against Federal law)…..probably sponsored by the CObc! Downhill from there. Probably can’t go much lower, before the entire states tax base disappears. Happening in many other D controlled states…..Texas and Florida lovin it!! Our tax base is exploding! YALL COME!

  • Robin says:

    Why do they have a Black Caucus? I thought the legislatures were the PEOPLE’S?

  • NORDNEG says:

    From what I’ve seen, ever since the first day of Obummers presidency, race relations in America has gone way down hill, every thing now is about color, with white being blamed for all the minority’s problems, most of the time the minority’s claims are bogus, proven to be wrong, I think it’s time for the crackers to start striking back, as long as people like A Sharpton, L Farrakhan,J Jackson, Rev White, & several Congress & Senate people keep spouting bigotry against the white man ,this country is going to be divided…

  • Marcia Fridland says:

    I respect Martin Luther King for the wisdom of his words, not for the color of his skin. I could not care less about his DNA.

  • Betty Jay says:

    These Blacks are the ones who are racists. They have no integrity or honesty. Guess they have learned the lesson of hate very well from the Muslim Obama. Now that the Blacks are in leadership positions, they have chosen to be nothing but hate-filled RACISTS.

  • Democrats should not be allowed because they owned slavery. Doctor King Jr. would not be caught in Colorado because.they represent everything he stood for. Neither would he support Black Lives Matter or any other racist group.

  • Mikki says:

    This is beyond stupid.

  • Paul says:

    Exactly how does a single Caucus control anything having to do with submitting a bill?

  • William says:

    Race riots have always been started by the4 Blacks trying to take over a part of town and they have always used these events for looting and vandalism! Blacks don’t want to work! they show that when you hire them! They think because their race was abused in history they are owed a living! and as long as that thinking persists among Blacks they will never get the respect they want!!! When the Black community starts raising respectful responsible children that obey the laws and step up to their responsibilities, then they will deserve and get respect. The biggest statistic they need to change: Blacks commit 80% of the crimes in the U.S.!!!

  • Wyatt says:

    There is stupid and then there is beyond stupid . These people have reached the point of Infinity and beyond . Dr King stood for equality . Not just equality for blacks or people of color but for All people no matter What the pigmentation of their skin . Were he with us today I have no doubt he would let these people know how ashamed he is of them . Somehow I seriously feel that this is not about who wanted to introduce the bill honoring him , but about themselves and getting a headline , their name in the papers . I know in my heart that Dr King would have denounced the reverse racism that has come over this nation since 2008 .

    Dumber than a box of rocks!

  • John Beargrass says:

    Seems like only white folks are the only ones that are racists. Many of the black folks are racist as hell

  • John J says:

    King was an udder failure, he should not be honored in any way, just like Hitler

    King was a failure

  • Blondie says:

    For years, I’ve been warning we whites, that the blacks only use racism to get what they want & put fear in the white people. Whites are blamed for everything the blacks do wrong. They want to holler “white privilege” when the fact is “black privilege” at every angle. When will the dumb whites stop protecting the rotten blacks with their hypocritical ways & start protecting our own rights. The blacks are the worst racists in this world. They created their own crap & they brought the FIRST black slaves to America. You will NEVER hear any black tell the truth about slavery.
    They are a mockery to the entire world, pretending they are oppressed. BS with that…. It’s past time that we whites stop allowing them to bash us & call us racists. We need to take back our own power of being white. God created us white & if the blacks don’t like it, talk to God…… Blacks go to church all the time & all the time talk about God. That is the biggest cover one could every see through. DECEPTION at its highest level is how the blacks operate. Look at the Empire boy, who said a rope was put around his neck & he was beat up. That was a complete lie as the camera’s show everything that happened that night & there was never any assault to him. Look at the depths they go to, in order to prove whites are evil. They better thank God for the white people, otherwise, they would all be killing each other. Also, look at the evil black woman who said a white man killed her 7 year old sister. All the time, she knew it was 2 black guys who killed her sister. When the truth came out, did she ever apologize for the evil statements she made out white people? NO, she did not. All the evil blacks gathered in the streets to riot & act like the fools they are, because they were certain a white man killed the little girl. Just look at their hypocrisy. When they found out 2 black boys killed the little girl, they never said a word, but, took their crap & went home. Never did any black individual apologize to that wonderful white guy, Never. Can you see what I’m saying?

    • GWB says:

      If you didn’t lump all black people into a single box (and your white people, too), your comment might have more impact. There’s truth in it, but you muddied it with your blanket statements.

      Sadly, this post seems to have attracted a lot of comments like this. 🙁
