I am confused. He was elected. Usually when someone is not re-elected it is due to incompetence, criminal activity or the like. I don't see how race got to be the issue.

Living in the South, it is always assumed that most of the ignorant racists live in the South. But reading some of the NY threads proves that's not the case. A lot of uneducated morons reside in NY.
