The Delaware County Daily Times (Pennsylvania), today, Oct. 17, featured on their front page a photo of a Springfield, Pa.’ man’s Halloween decoration which was a plastic skeleton hanging from a tree garbed in an Obama/Biden shirt. Inside was a long story discussing whether it was racist.
Apparently some of the man’s neighbors who are Democrats and who may very well have worn similar shirts are upset. It is a white neighborhood it should be noted.
One wonders if they would be just as upset if the skeleton was wearing a Romney/Ryan shirt. One wonders if it would be a front page story if it were.
Actually, one doesn’t.
On the other hand one does wonder why there wasn’t a peep about the beating of a 15-year-old girl by nine teenage boys after an Interboro football game Monday night that is making national news. There are not a lot of details as to what might have motivated the attack in the CBS story. Think it could have involved racism? Wonder if there will be a discussion.
