I'm the only one saying it's acceptable to vote to keep a community homogenous or vote to not. Everyone else is saying it is entirely unacceptable.

Even if it wasn't, I still would be against that Black woman saying that about a Black neighborhood.

And I'm saying whoever wants to live in a community, regardless of race, can live there, and no one should prevent anyone of any race/ethnicity from living there. That "no Blacks allowed" chapter in U.S. history is over. Time to move on.

So if something is to your liking and beneficial to you personally, then it must be right.

Well then by that standard I'm right too and there can be no wrong.

I'm saying that the way things are done today are better than what existed 60 years ago.

Better for you, not better for everyone.

Your two examples here probably won't go as viral compared to what the mayor in this story. Heck, if the mayor was a White man, it probably would go even more viral! Nevertheless, what a vile statement for her to say and this is coming from someone who has said many vile things!

Wrong. I think people better understood and followed the constitution from 1787 till about the 1960s, than people do today.

I watched her being interviewed yesterday she's got her wig screwed on a bit too tight.
