Speaker focuses talk on diversity
Diversity and multiculturalism have always interested Tulsa poet and attorney Hannibal Johnson.
"There are few issues that are more important than learning about diversity," Johnson said Tuesday at the Tulsa Press Club during a speech on increasing diversity in the workforce and improving race relations in Oklahoma.
The Press Club, a collective of print and broadcast journalists that started more than 75 years ago, regularly invites guests to speak at the club's downtown location.
I'm ticked off that I wasn't invited to their little get together!
Now check out some of the quotes from Hannibal who is down on Tulsa and down on OK.
"We live in a relatively segregated city," Johnson said(really? what do you base that on?), adding that "our state has become a hot-spot for right-wing extremists like the Ku Klux Klan." (really? where? can you sight any evidence to support that claim?).
"Oklahoma has a reputation of being a closed-minded place, and that reflects badly on our state," Johnson said. (according to who?)
