Mitt Romney's Thursday in West Philadelphia

Yesterday, Romney got a not-so-warm welcome during his trip in West Philly, which included a stop at the Universal Bluford Charter School. As he spoke about his record on education in Massachusetts, Kenny Gamble, the school’s founder, said: “Governor, you’ve got to go back and remember how the whole concept of education has failed. You go back a few years, even in Boston, when they were trying to integrate schools and they had young black children going to white neighborhoods and they were throwing eggs at the little black children, spitting on them, calling them all kinds of names.”  [Slate]
