Mike asked the question to Allen. He denied it. Why not just say that you were young and said some pretty dumb things. Who hasn't? I grew up in NY, and racial slurs were associated with all sorts of juvenile behavior, but when you're a kid you tend to say stupid stuff. If he hadn't draped himself around the Confederate flag, lied about his Jewish heritage and embraced the " Macaca"...

I'd probably give him a pass. Not anymore...

Can you help us out?
