Ohio’s governor has run amok with his ideas on running the state. He has forgotten that he was elected by the people, thus he will be chastised and brought to task by the people. But the most important thing he has forgotten is, UNFORTUNATELY, black people helped to put him in office–the same office he refuses to hire any minorities to support.
GOP Governor John Kasich has torn a book right out of his 19th century predecessors’ book by keeping his newly appointed cabinet completely white. He claims that he is only hiring the best for his administration and race does not play a part in his selection. State senator Nina Turner, a Cleveland Democrat, told Cleveland’s Plain Dealer, “Through his actions and deeds, Gov. Kasich has declared that Ohio is open for business, but if you are African-American, you need not apply. If you are Hispanic, you need not apply. If you are Asian or Indian, you need not apply.”
She also alleges that in a heated discussion with Kasich he said, “I don’t need your people.” Immediately, she had no idea what to do with this statement. His spokesman has since tried to clear it up saying that he meant “partisan democrats.” But not only is he having a problem adding color to his administration, there’s other racial flags being thrown up. In January, he signed a resolution to celebrate the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on March 17 — St. Patrick’s Day — instead of Jan. 17, the correct date. Not enough for you? He shunned the Southern Christian Leadership Conference’s invitation to attend the tenth annual Martin Luther King Jr. celebration while he was in the city. And the list goes on.
How did Ohio vote in an ultra-conservative Republican? That’s not the usual m.o. for the state. The state’s black caucus is on his behind though along with the Southern Christian Leadership and the Rev. Al Sharpton. It is impossible for a state that is not all-white to be run by an all-white administration. The needs of the state can’t be properly identified or felt.
