(RepublicanWire.org) – In the never ending liberal game of “guess what’s racist today,” Democrats in Washington State are now saying that the word “marijuana” is “racist.”

Washington Democrats are now demanding that the legislature comb through its laws, rules, and statutes to eliminate the word “marijuana” because it somehow now means “black people.”

“The term ‘marijuana’ itself is pejorative and racist,” bill sponsor Washington state Democrat Rep. Melanie Morgan, said during testimony for the bill last year. Morgan then tried to prove her case by bringing up the Spanish origins of the word.

She insisted that marijuana use became more popular, “it was negatively associated with Mexican immigrants.” The state lawmaker claimed it is “racist terminology” and was used “to lock up black and brown people.”

Some pot companies in the state agree because the word does have a long history in the U.S. of being connected to criminality, KIRO-TV reported.

One legal pot grower, Joy Hollingsworth, said that the word is “traumatic” for black people because so many had been arrested for illegal use of the drug.

“We have a lot of people, especially in the black community that went to prison over cannabis for years. That were locked up, separated from their nuclear family, which is huge,” Hollingsworth said, adding the word “triggers” black people. “It’s really painful for people to hear that word and it triggers them.”

Leftist Governor Jay Inslee signed the bill into law March 11. The changes will take effect in June.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Recently there are some reporters from The New York Times to release a book. While they are not former White House staff it is possible that they could still have some insight into some things.

One thing that makes this one especially interesting is that according to this book they are revealing some details about Kamala Harris that are not so flattering. Mind you this is coming from reporters from The New York Times which is known to be left leaning.

Apparently, Harris was not very happy about being appointed to try to fix the problem at the southern border. I can’t imagine why. Probably because they are ridiculous policies, and are literally impossible at solving the problem.

She also thinks that Biden’s “white inner circle” has issues with her. I’m sure she thinks it’s probably a race thing, but to be truthful that’s probably because she’s not the brightest crayon in the shed.

According to the Daily Mail,

Kamala Harris wasn’t happy with Joe Biden appointing her to address the southern border crisis, wanting a more softball foreign policy assignment, and thinks the president’s ‘white inner circle’ looks down on her, according to claims made in a new book.

During an April meeting with Congressional Black Caucus leaders, Biden praised Harris and said she would do ‘a hell of a job’ handling immigration.

‘The vice president corrected him at once,’ New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns wrote in their new upcoming book This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future.

The book also explains that the first minority and female vice president felt belittled by Biden’s white staff.

‘Some of Harris’s advisers believed the president’s almost entirely white inner circle did not show the vice president the respect she deserved,’ they wrote.

‘Harris worried that Biden’s staff looked down on her; she fixated on real and perceived snubs in ways the West Wing found tedious,’ they added, according to excerpts published by Politico on Tuesday.

Biden tasked Harris with addressing immigration – and the vice president took her opportunities to share her dissatisfaction with the role.

According to the book, Harris’ aides felt that the task of addressing the southern border crisis, in any way, was politically undesirable and wanted the vice president to have a more softball foreign policy assignment – like overseeing relations with Nordic countries.

There’s a lot more that’s in his book that dishes dirty details on Kamala Harris. One of the things that the book mentions is the whole magazine cover that she didn’t like because of certain outfits and how it made her look inferior to other professionals. And then this became an issue of race as well.
