Racism - Alive And Well In Pittsburgh's North Hills
Just in case you had doubts about Rep. John Murtha's comments about racism in Western Pennsylvania, consider the following example, reported in today's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, One of America's Great Newspapers:
The A.W. Beattie Career Center has suspended an instructional aide for "unprofessional and unacceptable" comments about President-elect Barack Obama.
The aide, identified by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review as Chris Skertich, told a 16-year-old biracial student that Mr. Obama was going to be shot and killed, the U.S. flag would be changed to the KFC flag, and the national anthem would be changed to "Moving On Up."
Another staff member of the McCandless vocational school was also reported to have heard the comments, and reported the aide to the school's administration.
