He meant that clearly Youngstown has serious racial issues.

It's a vauge reference only, but Youngstown has had the worst homicide per capita rate of any American city in the past and may get that dubious title again in the near future at the present rate. DC political pundents took notice of this long ago. Youngstown, Ohio is a templete for the ailing American city.

Why was it relevenat to mention his former political party affiliation? I'll bet you a bottle of the finest highland scotch that if he'd been a democrat, it would of gone unmentioned.
