Shocking Racism on the Campaign Trail
Oh, the humanity
Here's the worst: In Muncie, a factory town in the east-central part of Indiana, Ross and her cohorts were soliciting support for Obama at malls, on street corners and in a Wal-Mart parking lot, and they ran into "a horrible response," as Ross put it, a level of anti-black sentiment that none of them had anticipated.
"The first person I encountered was like, 'I'll never vote for a black person,' " recalled Ross, who is white and just turned 20. "People just weren't receptive."
Horrible, indeed! Granted, the idea of not voting for Obama based on his color is absurd, but this gal gets the vapors over it. There are some other incidents that are mentioned, but I note there's no discussion of the sexism that Hillary supporters have encountered on the campaign trail.
