I found this at HotAir this morning. I'm not sure what to make of it. If it's supposed to make people feel better about him (and not necessarily blacks but anyone who was of that generation who supports civil rights) I don't know if it's going to work.
Anyway read the information over there because taking some quotes down won't do this story and commentary justice. The story is actually about his dad George Romney who used to be governor of Michigan.
Mitt Romney is seeking the Republican nomination for President of the United States. He used to be the governor of Masschusettes.
Andrew Sullivan's Daily Dish talks about this story as well.
