Glenn Grothman: wrong about native american mascots.

Shockingly, it turns out that native Americans find racial stereotyping of their culture in team names to be derogatory and painful. And now they don't have to put up with that anymore.

But not so our own Glenn Grothman who, on behalf of his constituent felt he had to add:

Grothman stated that many of his Native American constituents supported mascots and shouldn’t be told what to do by a white liberal extremist or one malcontent.

"Many of this Native American constituents"??? He's high.

Native Americans constitute about .3% of our population.

So listen up white boy, I'm calling you out. Not only do I not believe you have ever knowingly spoken to one of your native American constituents, but I'd be astonished to discover that they think you have a handle on this whole mascot thing. Name two and I'll buy you lunch at Janulis.
