Democrat Vi Lyles becomes the first African American female mayor of a Charlotte!
As long as she was elected by merit and not race.
Boo. Another democrat that is going to continue keeping Charolette a high crime City.
Boo! Democrat IN, money OUT
Well, to be fair, it’s not “democrat in”. The previous mayor was a democrat so nothing changed. Though we have grown as an economic powerhouse lately so...
Come on glux don’t be a snowflake
How is not giving a shit about the color of someone's skin equivalent to being a snowflake?
Skin color is not an achievement. It's something that we are all born with. Therefore, I don't judge political candidates based on their race just like I don't judge people in general based on their race. Explain why you think that not viewing anything snd everything through a racial lens makes someone a snowflake. I'm very interested in your answer.
Saying this is cool isn't a commentary on the new mayor herself. What's cool is that the people who elected her were able to look past what very recently were arbitrarily disqualifying attributes. So yes, we agree, it shouldn't matter. It's cool people that people are starting to see that.
Clearly you two can't look past it or else you wouldn't be chomping at the bit to point out her skin color.
And the second part of your statement sounded a lot like projection. Why do you view having a certain skin color as a disqualifying attribute?
