Charting Pennsylvania’s Racism

It’s more volatile than the stock market!

Yesterday, western Pennsylvania was a “racist area” according to its Congressman John Murtha.

Today, it’s no longer racist. Whew!

He issued the following statement today: “I apologize for making the comment that ‘Western Pennsylvania is a racist area.’ 

“While we cannot deny that race is a factor in this election, I believe we’ve been able to look beyond race these past few months, and that voters today are concerned with the policy differences of our two candidates and their vision for the future of our great country.
