" A legislative candidate from Wisconsin can't use a profane, racially charged phrase to describe herself on the ballot, an election oversight board decided Wednesday.
Ieshuh Griffin, an independent running for a downtown Milwaukee seat in the state Assembly, wants to use the phrase, 'NOT the 'whiteman's b----.''
But the state's Government Accountability Board voted to bar that wording, agreeing with a staff recommendation that it is pejorative and therefore not allowed."
Should this be allowed? I agree with a point made in the article. If a white person stated, 'NOT the 'blackman's b----.'', there would be no question of its racial content.
