Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal Was Part of High School Group That Held ‘Slave Day,’ Used Racial Slur Repeatedly in College Writing

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., served as president of the student council at his high school when the group put on a “Slave Day” fundraising event, and he used a term now recognized as racist several times during one of his writings for the student newspaper at Harvard University. According to images and documentation listed in the 1963 yearbook for Riverdale Country School, a private school located in the Bronx, Blumenthal served as president of the school’s student council and attempted to unify the school through a series of fundraising events that called for student participation.

Blumenthal is lucky that he has a ‘D’ in front of his name of his name or this would be all over MSNBC, CNN, NYTines etc.
