Some Michiganders were outraged after hearing Representative John Olumba’s farewell speech. Parts of the speech are being called “bigoted” and “repulsive,” according to WXYZ News in Detroit.
“Asians and Chaldeans should have a black misery appreciation day, selling fake hair and looseys to people just looking for fresh air and making a fortune doing it,” Olumba said during his farewell speech.

“To me seeing a guy dressed up like a girl is really funny or sad, but don’t make the mistake of comparing his struggle to MLK or my wife’s father or grandfather being sprayed with a hose or bitten by dogs or millions of people losing their lives to forced bondage or servitude,” Olumba also proclaimed during the speech.

Twitter and other social media platforms exploded with outrage and disbelief after hearing Olumba’s farewell words. Much of the speech also involved prayers, in addition to the minimization of the struggles of many minority groups, as he compared the challenges of some groups with those from the tumultuous Civil Rights Movement.
