Governor Rick Snyder met today with the Michigan Legislative Black Caucus.

Etue faces calls for her to step down. It’s because she shared a Facebook post that called NFL players who take a knee during the national anthem “degenerates.” She removed the post and apologized

State Representative Sheldon Neeley leads the Black Caucus. Neeley says he’s still not satisfied with Etue’s or the governor’s response to the incident. He says the State Police still has work to do to ensure diversity and fairness in the department.

The governor says he stands Etue and believes her apology is sincere. She also faces an internal investigation for possibly violating the State Police social media policy.
