Democrats show their ignorance of history with charge that Electoral College is racist

Washington Examiner:
Defeated Democrats' new attack line: The Electoral College is racist
Even the NY Times is spreading this nonsense.  Their claim that the college was set up to get the approval of the "slave states" is without evidence.  Madison, who wrote the constitution, never mentions it and at the time only one state had outlawed slavery, Massachusetts.  The reason for the college was to get the smaller states to buy into the deal.  They feared states like New York, where slavery was still legal, would dominate the new government.

What the Democrats want to see is states like California, Illinois, and New York dominate the selection of a president.  These states are the poster child for the failure of liberalism which they would like to see in the rest of the country.
