Racism has no place in the Senate

Aug 17 2006

It may be okay in George Allen's America to demean someone based on their ethnicity. But it's not okay in ours. Senator Allen's recent behavior--both his words and his refusal to come clean and truly apologize--has no place in American politics. He should step down.

Unless the Republican Party shares Allen's ideology, they should drop their support for his Senate race and identify a candidate that believes racism and ethnocentrism aren't American Values. Join us in calling on the Republican National Committee to withdraw its support of Sen. Allen immediately.

UPDATE: After nearly 12,000 ColorOfChange members called on the Republican National Committee to withdraw its support of Sen. Allen, Allen apologized for the remark. He lost his reelection bid several months later.

This campaign has concluded.
