Senator George Allen Has Shown His True Colors

The current campaign has exposed a lifelong pattern of racism by the senator from Virginia. The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior. The average black person meets thousands of George Allens over a lifetime. You do not have to do anything to these guys for them to hate you. It slipped out on camera for the world to see.

The Senate Energy & Natural Resources Committee can do without his bias. We believe the political environment would be better without him. However, even though Virginia performed the revolutionary act of electing L. Douglas Wilder as governor, the first black in the nation so elected, there are many George Allens out there and he might be reelected. Hopefully, Allen's presidential aspirations are over forever.
