Editorial: The Courant Endorses Hillary Clinton

Source: Hartford Courant

The problem with this election isn't that Donald Trump is racist. The problem is that we are.

Now, before everyone gets all nervous and defensive, pause a moment. It's not that most Americans are hateful or narrow-minded. We believe that those who promulgate bigotry and divisiveness are a small if loud segment of the population.

But race is so deeply woven into the fabric of the national conversation that it is all but impossible not to see the world through the prism of color. Like it or not, we all bring our preconceptions and prejudices and fears to that debate.

The question is what do we do with them? Do we allow those fears to rule our actions and words or do we admit that part of the mission of being an American is, to echo the words of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., to look beyond the color of our neighbors' skin and understand and appreciate the content of their character? This is a battle so many of us struggle with admit it or not.

The Hartford Courant is the oldest continuously published newspaper in the United States (founded 1764)

They've been a right leaning newspaper over the last decade, although still fairly central.

This is yet another big endorsement for Hillary Clinton.
