Not too long after our post was published, Sheri quickly hopped on Facebook and changed the spelling to the normal "Clan" people use when referring to a small group – extinguishing the racism-revealing flame like it was a burning cross in the front yard.
She then shared this:
Yep. Sherri brushed off her racist Freudian slip as a simple “misspelled word” and then attempted to turn the conversation to something she’s more comfortable with – book banning.
That’s kind of funny, but only because her little avatar looks like a cartoon lesbian rapper she’d probably want to ban from the school library.
I guess Sherrie’s explanation didn’t smooth things over as fast as she wanted, so she hopped on TLO, took a pic, and shared this:
First of all, I’d like to thank Sherrie for reading our site and supporting local media. I hope she also enrolls as a subscriber!
Second, as one of the world's leading experts when it comes to typos (one way you can tell that I've been kidnapped by Carly Atchison and forced to write against my will is if an article doesn't have any typos in it ), I get it. Typos, misplaced words, and “incorrect usage of a homophone” can happen to anyone, including smart people with English degrees.
That being said, there's a huge difference between using the wrong “their” (or declaring you're a pubic school teacher) and referring to your entire family as a Klan!
K & C are far away from each other on the keyboard, and about the only way you can get those words mixed up is if you’re really dumb, really racist, or in the case of most book-banning Oklahoma lawmakers, both.
