Adios Frank Artiles! No politician has the right to call anyone racial slurs

Florida State Senator Frank Artiles has resigned. News sources report the Miami lawmaker wants time for “personal reflection.”

Let’s be honest, he could not get away with calling two lawmakers “Girl” “Bitch” or the N-word.

Artiles was forced to apologize for calling two other senators racial slurs three days ago. Members of the Florida Legislative Black Caucus described Artiles as a bully. Many took to social media to unleashed their own anger on Artiles.

The people won!
