George Allen is Running for VA Senate

by Nitesh Arora


George Allen is running against former Governor Tim Kaine in the Virginia Senate race. 

Here's a video from his previous time on the campaign trail. 

Just to break that down for you, he's calling an Indian campaign worker from the opposition 'macaca'. Slate  says to read the wikipedia entry with a pinch of salt. 

OK. But, he's still calling the Indian guy something. I don't care if it's a racial slur or it it just means 'monkey', would he have done the same to a white male? And , before people start yelling at me for using the 'race card', that's not my intention. Honestly: Would he have used the same words for a person that looks like him?
