The Carl Paladino hearing continues for its third day in Albany this afternoon. The Buffalo School Board is fighting to have Paladino kicked off the board for disclosing teacher contract discussions in an Artvoice article. Attempts to remove Paladino began after he made racist remarks last December against the Obamas. School Superintendent Dr. Kriner Cash was first called to testify when the hearing started at 1 p.m.

For one brief era, Buffalo, or at least one part of it, was an integrated place where people of different races and ethnicities mixed freely and comfortably. The time was the turn of the 20 th century, the place was the Near East Side, and the environment that flourished there produced some of the greatest music America has ever heard.
