Abrams: Blacks and Hispanics need to be told how to vote

In another apparently racist comment, School Board member Stephen N. Abrams hinted that blacks and Hispanics need to be told for whom to vote.

According to the Gazette, Abrams complained that the School Board's African-American and Latina members voted to elect another African-American to the board after being given instructions from a teachers' union.

Pretty ugly stuff, especially on the heels of the racist "boy" incident in which Abrams is charged with extortion and assault.
