Alameda Or Alabama? Where Am I?

October 13, 2006 at 9:10 pm (Alameda, News & Politics)

My hamlet is an East Bay Island, Alameda, in northern California. Yes, the “progressive and liberal” Bay Area… Last week it was revealed that in June of 2005, the Republican Mayoral candidate, Doug deHaan was recorded and videoed while referring to African Americans as “tar babies”. Has he withdrawn from the race? No. Has he resigned from the City Council? No. When will he, I ask. If Socrates was correct, this racist’s thinking reflects the view of a great many of my neighbors. If so, I may need to find a slightly more remote Island to live on… Room on Crete?
