So what you're saying is you actually have no examples. Kthxbye!

Nah... Not that he/she/shim doesn't have any examples, just that he/she/shim is WAYYYY more woke than you.

You spoke of recent legislation the republicans passed that has been anti-black. I really have no way of searching for "anti black republican legislation". Can you provide some examples, please? I am genuinely interested.

I'm a millennial, who works in an extremely high % gay industry. Like pretty much all males are gay high %. And most are super cool, I like to hang with them more than the drama queen women!!

It's just a philosophical difference in opinion. You feel various groups receiving praise for "contributing to society" should be a function of government. I do not*. That doesn't make me racist, or middle aged, or anti-gay, or an ahole.

If you have to call out diversity, isn't that really kinda racist in a backwards way? By that I mean, I would think most minorities just want to be treated like whites are, that is, like a person, without being treated "special".

I'm not upset about the council members sexual orientation. As I stated in my first post, I'm curious as to their background to make them qualified to say the things they are wanting to do and spend taxpayer monies.

*the one exception I make is memorial and veterans days.
Smh

The city of Raleigh doesn't operate a jail; Wake County does. Therefore, the issue is irrelevant to the City of Raleigh.

If you follow Raleigh city council, for the last year, an anti-abortion group from Wake Forest has been showing up at city council meetings. Like I'm pretty sure you should be showing up at the NCGA for stuff like that, not the city council.

Yikes.....


Here's your reason, told through humor.

*******Adult language warning (as well as a warning for those who maybe triggered by the word "privilege", which is, by last check, somewhere in the neighborhood of 40% of our country)

Always trying to keep minorities down!

Disagreeing with someone from a different race makes them a racist?

You're kind of hard to follow here and it feels like you have a chip on your shoulder.

I feel the whole "month celebration" thing is kinda a waste of time. I mean it feels more like pandering than actual meaningful...whatever it is. But it would be political suicide to strike it from the books so we're where we are now. I guess if you like getting pandered it's fine, but I just find that to be so demeaning personally.
My friends that are gay do not celebrate gay pride or want anything to do with alphabet soup group. They find them embarrassing. Most gay people don't fall in line with them. The alphabet soup is very vocal so they get a lot of attention. Hopefully whoever is on city council is more fiscally conservative. I didnt enjoy my taxes going up 10% and with the spending that happens that will continue to happen. Cant spend money without bringing more in.

How many friends do you have who are gay? Cause all my gay friends like Pride. I was just at Durhams Pride a couple of weekends ago with lots of folks from all over the Triangle. What I’m finding surprising about this thread is that it has taken this long for Raleigh to have a gay council member. That is amazingly slow to me. Chapel Hill elected Joe Herzenberg to office the first time in 1979, forty years ago, and Raleigh is just now catching up. Wow.

There’s no meaning to it the gay population is not that high, most people aren’t gay. That doesn’t mean raleigh is anti gay or something .
