Colorado Lawmakers Use Slideshow With N-Word When Pushing Bill For Native American Mascot Ban

Two Colorado representatives upset fellow lawmakers this week when they presented a slideshow filled with racist images and slurs at a House Education Committee meeting. Democratic Reps. Joe Salazar and Jovan Melton presented the images in an effort to convince others to vote for a bill that restricts the use of Native American mascots in schools, according to The Denver Post.

The lawmakers projected the slideshow onto statehouse walls. Their aim was to point out the hypocrisy of allowing Native American mascots in schools when other racist images are considered unacceptable, the outlet said.
