In a nutshell:

And just this week, as the board was preparing to vote on Do's resolution declaring racism a public health crisis, an audience member yelled at Orange County Health Care Agency Director Clayton Chau, telling him to "Go back to China!"
Do quickly came to his colleague's defense, slamming the man who had hurled the slur as well as those claiming the resolution was unnecessary in Orange County.
"Really, go back to China?" Do said. "And you think racism is dead?"

Forts Benning and Bragg are getting new names. Should they have been named for traitors? No. Should they have been renamed years ago? Yes. The renaming is part of a Defense Authorization bill vetoed by President Trump and had his veto overridden by Congress.

Also, Georgia has several  counties named for Confederates. Including a Jeff Davis County. But looking through the Wikipedia list, it looks like as many or more more are named for people prominent in the various wars against American Indians. Which is not better.

If you live in the South, don't come crying to me because you live in a cartoon stereotype of the South.

And no one in the south is trying to change it.

It's amazing how many northerners are still just as obsessed with the Civil War as certain southerners. Guys, it's been well over 150 years. fark off already. It's over. It's been over for a long time.

Y'all southerners can stop waving your hick flag. Youse northern guys can stop biatching about dead generals. I'm guessing both of you gangs of idiots would be perfectly happy with finding some new obsession, like maybe My Little Pony or Care Bears. You'll still be perfectly free to abuse each other for liking the Wrong Pony or something, ok?

California is not the liberal fortress you think it is: if it wasn't for Los Angeles Metro Area and San Francisco Metro area...it would be as deep red as any other southern state.

Orange County doesn't like to think they are racist, they have black friends.

What I want to know is why a man who has been through racial hell decide to become  GOP politician?

That's named in memory of the victims of the Great Polka Massacre of 1986. Just because accordion music rightfully can drive most people into a murderous rage doesn't mean we need to destroy the activiies that are part of Polish heritage. Hate the player, not the game.

During the public comments segment of the meeting, one speaker equated Do's resolution with critical race theory - an academic concept that seeks to understand and address inequality and racism in the US, which has been maligned by many conservatives.

The Republican supervisor fired back at his critics, telling them, "For those of you who care enough to follow, I am far from the Left...so don't get on your soap box and preach to me."

Reagan Republicans were super hardcore anti-communists, which is why Cubans and Vietnamese of a certain vintage joined the party and haven't looked back. The younger kids/grandkids, however, fight w/ their elders for obvious reasons.

From now on generations of Americans will figure that those two military complexes were only on the pages of Marvel comics.

One year as a child in Fort Benning was enough for a lifetime.  I feel sad when I hear Colin Powell had to endure the place in the 1950s, even if he got paid.

Biden got nearly twice as many votes as Trump (11 mill to 6 mill).  Seems like it is pretty solidly in the liberal camp.  It's far more Democratic than Texas and Florida are Republican.

The north has its issues like any other group of people.

But the south is a whole other nation, for all practical purposes.

The only thing they want from the north is federal tax money and to be left alone
