Allen the Racist

Three college teammates confirm that George Allen regularly used the N- word:

Allen said he came to Virginia because he wanted to play football in a place where 'blacks knew their place,'" said Dr. Ken Shelton, a white radiologist in North Carolina who played tight end for the University of Virginia football team when Allen was quarterback. "He used the N-word on a regular basis back then."
Add in the mounting the confederate flag, proclaiming Confederate History Month as governor, and the Macaca incident and you just have the profile of a racist.

That Allen is still even in the running to remain Senator shows how little real progress has been made in ending racial inequality in this country.
