After holding back for 30 years, three former Allen associates from his UVA football days, took some time out this week from their busy schedules watching Allen’s nascent Presidential campaign to kill his ambitions in the crib. How nice. Isn’t it wonderful that these people knowingly allowed an unapologetic racist and confederate enthusiast the freedom to climb the political ladder holding four different offices: state legislator, congressman, governor, and U.S. Senator while they held back politically damaging information about his poorly concealed racial animus against African Americans.
It does my heart good to know that for over a quarter century, a racist had free reign to make decisions on behalf of all Virginians in the general assembly and as Governor, and all Americans as a member of both houses of Congress.
These people allowed a racist the latitude to end parole in the commonwealth of Virginia.
These people allowed a racist the latitude to make non-revocable decisions on restoring the voting rights of African Americans felons.
I can think of no better example to illustrate the need for Affirmative Action. Do you hear me James Webb? Do you get it?
