A new blog to watch in Dayton, from the man Ellen Belcher loves to hate more than me: Mike Robinette, former director of the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission and community activist.
One of his first posts was about what he overheard at the Oakwood club before the debate last night:
Sitting at the bar having my before dinner drink I am sitting across the bar from five older (upper-class) white folks having a drink of their own.
The only lady of the five some asks if anyone plans to watch the presidential debate tonight. One elderly man next to her says, “why would I watch the debate I am not voting for that black bastard!”
A real life example that education and income DO NOT relieve ignorance.
If you liked the old Dayton Politics site, you’ll probably like this.
