MLG forming ‘racial justice’ council to pay for NM’s ‘embedded injustices’

On Thursday, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham announced she is forming the “Council for Racial Justice,” which will be comprised of black leaders and a “racial justice czar.”

Far-left House Majority Leader Rep. Sheryl Williams Stapleton will serve on the council, and no doubt champion the Governor’s left-wing initiatives.

According to Grisham, the United States has to “own what slavery did,” saying, “until we own that sin…that disgrace, we don’t have the opportunity to move forward.” She also said New Mexico needs to “re-educate” law enforcers.

In a press release, Lujan Grisham wrote, “While New Mexico is no stranger to police violence, hunger, poverty and inequality of opportunity are other embedded injustices within the state.”

The Governor also described “institutional racism” as a “cancer untreated” and slavery as an “original sin.” She also called it a “disgusting truth.” During her press conference, Lujan Grisham further elaborated, saying, “We have seen our Native American brothers and sisters face untold disproportionate struggle. We have generational work to do in restoring educational outcomes for minority and disadvantaged populations in our state. The system will not reform itself.”

It is unclear who will fund this council, or how much the initiative is supposed to cost the taxpayer, but it will no doubt be a setback to the state’s budget. 

Earlier Thursday, Gov. Lujan Grisham ordered state flags to half-staff to commemorate the death of a Minnesota man, George Floyd, and “all other victims of systemic racism and police violence.”

Commentary

However, New Mexico is a state with one of the largest minority populations (61.1% in 2014) and growing. The claim that somehow New Mexico is not “woke” enough for the Governor is a blatant mischaracterization of New Mexico’s culture of respect, family values, and acceptance of one’s neighbor. 

It is also irresponsible for the Governor to punish the people of New Mexico for the “original sin” of slavery — when slavery has been abolished for 155 years. Not a single person alive today is responsible for the horror of slavery, and to somehow guilt every single New Mexican into feeling guilty for something we have zero control over is irresponsible and ignorant.

Lujan Grisham needs to quit auditioning for Joe Biden’s running mate by virtue-signaling her way through the governorship. Instead, she needs to focus on the real issues that New Mexicans care about — and those do not include “social justice.” By pointing out our differences, Lujan Grisham is bringing more attention to the physical traits that make us different, such as our ethnicities — not helping heal any wounds that actually need attention. 

Furthermore, the Governor throughout her abusive reign has further divided the people and Law Enforcers, by using the State Police as props to deliver cease and desist orders to small business — creating tension between the men and women in uniform whose jobs are to keep us safe, and the people who should think of Law Enforcers as the heroes that they are supposed to be.

Shame on Gov. Lujan Grisham, and shame on those participating in helping her refuel the race war in this country that was slowly healing until Democrat rule in our country.

    Does our Governor realize that one of the first and largest slave owners in the USA was Black?

  3. I listen to and support successful conservative Black voices who are always counseling the Black community on how to be successful and not buy into the victimhood narrative. These courageous leaders, Star Parker, Ben Carson, Larry Elder, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Charles Payne, and more, face tremendous racism from other blacks and the left for having viewpoints contrary to the left agenda.

    1. Levi, I totally agree with the successful conservative Black voices that you listed, but I would like to add several more: U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, and activist Candace Owens.

      1. Steve,

        The people you mentioned, Thomas, Scott and Owens, definitely need to be in on this racial justice council, we need all sides conservative and liberal combined for fairness.

    2. Levi Borunda

      I totally agree with the leaders you have mentioned that should also be included in this council, we all would like it to be fair and balance by both sides.

  4. Michelle is definitely jockeying for that VP bid. Her history shows her to be a political office jumper so no matter what she says, if Biden happens to win, she is out of here acting in some other capacity as she just clamors for that political spotlight. She recently said she was going to shut up and listen more, we’ll see because I don’t think she can do it.

    1. She is the injustice, putting New Mexico with all of the other socialistic governors that hate America. She needs to be removed from office immediately if not sooner! She is power hungry & evil!

      1. I absolutely agree, she’s trying to act like Pelosi who is literally one SICK thing!!! Not sure human would right she so far out there.

    What a load of manure! So tired if this governor always trying to be in the news.
    I am not paying for slavery, I never owned a slave if any color!

  6. Our queen needs to go back and learn a little bit of history. This is such a load of crap. Sure there were injustices done but slavery was over 150 years ago. No one alive today had anything to do with it..She is only concerned with covering her own backside. She has her own agenda and itis not the people of New Mexico. Shes all about power and auditioning for Uncle Joe’s VP. She needs to go before our state gets any lower on the rung if that’s posible.

  7. Anything to jump on the anti -Trump band wagon Loserjan Gruesome. You are a mockery of the office of the Governor!!

  8. This governor is unfit to hold office. Her management ability is that of a deer in the headlights.
    This council is nothing but a waste of time and money.

    BTW, during the time of American slavery (when only 5% of Southerners owned slaves) my ancestors were being abused by the Brits in many ways far worse than most American slaves. Think: Potato Famine when 3 million Irish either died of starvation of emigrated. That is just one instance.
    So tired of this “racism” game. Time to put the past behind us and build a strong state together. Without the politicians.

    New Mexico was NEVER a slave territory or state before, during, or after the American Civil War! As a NM native, I can say that we have always been proud of our black history (as part of our vivid history involving ALL our many cultures) in this beautiful “Land of Enchantment”! Most people don’t realize that some of our state’s black history includes the great “Buffalo Soldiers,” who were stationed at our Fort Stanton in Lincoln County, where many of them are buried in the military cemetery there in the beautiful mountain setting. All the governor is doing in this latest action is CAUSING the great racial divide (so obvious in other parts of the USA) to come here to our state. Pray for God to help us bind up cultural wounds (with forgiveness) rather than cause new blood to spill on the soil in our beloved state!
