Macon will never advance until both the black voters and the white voters choose the best candidate instead of the [insert color choice here] candidate. I was absolutely gobsmacked recently when I was criticized for actively supporting several black candidates in town. It completely floored me.
Maybe all the candidates should go around in town during campaign season in hermetically sealed opaque costumes so we can’t see what race they are. Then put their resumes on pink paper with purple ink to totally keep the black and white issues out of the campaign.
I actually kind of wish we could do that - have the candidates wear those suits. If I never had to write ", who is black" or ", who is white" in a political story again, that'd be a happy day.
Anyway, if there actually is anyone who reads this blog and not Peach Pundit (unlikely), Erick's full post is here.
