OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Leaders with Oklahoma’s Legislative Black Caucus criticized Gov. Kevin Stitt’s weekend roundtable on race for what they say was a lack of diversity on the panel.
State Reps. Regina Goodwin of Tulsa and Jason Lowe of Oklahoma City released a statement Monday critical of the event Stitt hosted on Sunday.
Panelists included four men: two black community leaders, a black sheriff’s captain and a white police chief.
It was moderated by Stitt and his wife, Sarah.
Goodwin says the panel should have been more diverse, while Lowe criticized the meeting as a “superficial show of solidarity.”
