LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A Nebraska state school board member has dissociated himself from a blog posting that referred to President Barack Obama as a “half breed.”

On Monday Board of Education member Pat McPherson said on his “Objective Conservative” blog that he strongly disavowed the post’s racist tones and that he’d taken action to avert any future racist references.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/14Sd80L ) that the post included this reference:

“Now our great Black Leader (actually, if he were a Republican the liberals would call him what he is - a half-breed) in Washington wants to give everyone a free community college education.”

McPherson says he didn’t write the piece but took responsibility for not editing it before it was posted earlier Monday by someone he wouldn’t name. The post was removed.
