  • With Obama’s historic win, prejudice is questioned

    To the editor:

    First of all I did not think that the headline of The Cynthiana Democrat on Thursday, Nov. 6, was very appropriate to state: “Obarna beats McCain, but not here. “

    I feel that the paper did not show good journalism, it was disrespectful, and not in good taste with many of the minority issues and relationships that still plague our communities in Kentucky.

    The news of the Obama victory only garnered enough interest from the paper to be on the third page along with the vote tally of the other candidates.
