NAACP Oklahoma received complaint that Tulsa GOP is discriminating against black republicans. Apparently Tulsa GOP chairman – Michael McCutchin has made it difficult for black republicans to attend precinct meetings by moving the locations outside of their area. It is believed the intent is to alienate black republicans from becoming precinct officers and to discourage black republicans in that district from becoming voting members at the state convention. The NAACP letter states in part:
“According to Tulsa GOP Chairman, Michael McCutchin, any North Tulsa Precincts chosen a neighborhood location that disadvantaged citizens could walk to and feel safe & comfortably received in, would be banished from the county convention as a punishment for exercising their precinct’s will”.
