I figured this would have already happened during the Super-Lib years of the Wilder administration....Shame on you, Democrats for waiting this long to elect someone of color to a position of leadership.....After all, the Democrat party was the party of slavery back then just as it is the party of slavery now...

The TeaPulican party is the slavery party. Support big business and give away your right to unionize so you be an automaton slave to low paying big corporations. Let the Wall Street speculators make more money at the cost of respectable jobs.

EVEN AFTER THE ALIEN/ET OVERLORDS take over,'race' will still be in the conversation:
HUMAN race vs. the OVERLORDS.
So, perhaps rather than stopping the conversations, we should INTENSIFY the conversations about race.
This would include ways for everyone to join honest, respectful conversations, not shouting matches, and 30-second media blurbs.
And, safe spaces where each can related their own individual experiences openly, and where statements about others ( who are not yourself) requires justification by reasons in a common sense discussion with others.
Many of our current conversations about race involved trying to stomp on some people without reasons for stomping on them (that persons did not actively or intentionally harm you, but you stomp on them anyone), and stereotyping whole groups by some sort of bias (e.g. talking about all individuals in the group as if they are the same)- and exploding emotions in ways that stop conversation.
These are unacceptable forms of healthy conversation.
And further, when the ALIEN OVERLORDS they will have won just because the HUMAN RACE is so dysfunctional with conversation.
Well isn't that special, Church Lady! You just ejaculated a mouthful.

Your posts--grammatical and spelling errors included--illustrate why you should be institutionalized. The cotton-mouthed Thorazine loons who wander the streets of Staunton have nothing on you. For you to bring up overlords without crediting Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" is inexcusable.

Now, my dear, it is time for you to hike up your orthopedic support hose, adjust that bun in your hair, and proudly do your "Superior Dance." You contine to outdo yourself!

Before Wilder was the Gov. there was a nice state cash surplus. After he got in the state was projected 2.3 billion(?) in the red over the next 4 years. Also all raises and cost of living were stopped for years.

Just like our Secretary of State Godzillary holds a meaningless honorary job, so is this job, no big deal.
