Third Person Comes Forward Accusing Senator Allen of Racial Slurs in Past

Excerpt New York Times:
Mrs. [Xxxxxx] is the third acquaintance in two days to recount hearing Mr. Allen use racist slurs. The accusations are the latest twist in events set off when Mr. Allen called a young Democratic campaign operative of Indian descent “macaca.” Critics said the term was a racial pejorative derived from the name of a monkey species. Mr. Allen apologized for any offense and said he had just made up the word.

A college football teammate, Dr. [Yyyyyyyy], has said Mr. Allen used racial slurs and engaged in a racist prank in college in the early 70’s.

An anthropology professor, [Zzzzzzz], said that as a graduate student at the University of Virginia he heard Mr. Allen use the epithet.
