Michigan Bar Strips Racist Author Kyle Bristow of Short-Story Award | Southern Poverty Law Center


Michigan Bar Strips Racist Author Kyle Bristow of Short-Story Award | Southern Poverty Law Center: A bar official suggested judges who gave Bristow the award were hoodwinked by a “potential ideological manifesto” and hate speech masquerading as art.

“We cannot apologize enough,” said State Bar President Thomas C. Rombach said, adding that the biennial short-story contest would be discontinued.
