bold011915-small

This new editorial cartoon from Neal Obermeyer digs into the controversy surrounding Patrick McPherson, a board member of the Nebraska Board of Education who was discovered to have penned several racist blog posts, including one that refers to President Obama as a “half-breed.”

On Wednesday, the State Board of Education will consider a resolution calling on McPherson to resign, noting the board “deplores racism in all form and expects respect and civility be shown to all people including the President of the United States.”

Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts, and Senators Ben Sasse and Deb Fischer have also publicly called for McPherson’s resignation.
