Looking forward to do it again. I mean white people haven’t done all that well with managing the government, so… LikeLike Reply Obama sure did nothing for the country, luckily he’s being erased. LikeLike Reply Wow, just wow – I think Nikita is either stuck in the 60s or stuck on the plantation, one or the other. LikeLike Reply Look I’m a black woman, so you should vote for me? Actually your picture tells us you are a black woman and why does that matter in the determination of #1 If you are qualified to do the job? #2 If I think based on your qualifications and what you say leads me to believe that you would be a good fit for the job? #3 Do I think I can trust you to do the job professionally? Her skin color (as she would probably say) should not be part of my decision but she seems to want it to be part of my decision. So she is saying elect me because I am a black woman? So in a country in which we are not supposed to judge based on race or ethnicity, her primary qualification is that she is a black woman? LikeLike Reply So if she uses the race card to get elected…. Can we expect to see the race card thrown out during her tenure (if she is elected)? If we criticize anything she says or does in the future will the race card suddenly emerge? What do you think? LikeLike Reply She has MANY posts referring to race, it’s easy to see that will continue if she is elected. LikeLiked by 1 person Yes I imagine that is going to be the case with her…which is why are would never vote for her. If I am hiring or voting… I am looking for the best qualified people… and know I will ALWAYS reject anyone who thinks that their race or ethnicity or religion puts them in a special category. You expect me to be color blind and then you tell me that your black skin is your special qualification that I need to pay attention to? LikeLiked by 1 person I want to make everyone aware of 3 black woman who have broken out of the Democratic plantation that Nikita is still in. They have realized that years of dependence and exploitation by establishment democrats have left most black people in America without the mindsets or the ability to be really free. First is Diamond and Silk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VK7aauzXsIg and Second Candace Owens https://twitter.com/RealCandaceO?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor These girls are outspoken advocates for leaving the plantation and uniting all people to solve our problems…uniting instead of dividing. All the things that make America great. They don’t have a race card in their decks and they don’t need one. LikeLike I’d like to hear HER definition of “OUR MOVEMENT” as that sounds like some kind of special group. Vote for a qualified candidate, or such would have MUCH more appeal.. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Sorry Nikita – I don’t vote based on skin color or sex. I vote on issues that matter to me… like not letting government unionized scum (which is where you get all your money) steal all my hard earned money to waste on your “priorities” which is stealing more of my money to give to your union cronies. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply The Congo is nice this time of year! No concern over skin color there. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply So, there’s overt racism and ignorant racism and I’m guessing “garabalidi” thinks they’re being funny, so I’m going with ignorant racism. garabaldi, that was a racist comment. Just shy of “go back to where you came from.” LikeLike Reply Hey Rich, Nikita initiated the conversation of candidacy based on skin color and therefore opened herself up for the skin color conversation. I don’t think that many of the followers of this blog are racist although I am personally sick and tired of the defenders of the black privilege of not taking responsibility of their race baiting comments. LikeLike Nikita Richards is a thug, planted on the ballot and running to assure that all measures of voter fraud cement and perpetuate Left Wing Control over Bloomington and Normal governments. There Richie, I said it. Am a a racist too? (Not that I care about your opinions.) LikeLike Reply Hey Rich. Lawrence makes some GREAT points, but you don’t happen to comment on those. You tired of getting shot down? Or you vote on race also? Maybe you and ole Tari should get together and PUSH for a NIMT ordinance! Then again, you’d see daylight outside the closet.. Russia is nice this time of year in the Siberian Gulags. You consider THAT racist also? Maybe you SHOULD look into Russian history and SEE how many slaves died building THEIR railroads? Does 1 per meter sound excessive-NAW, not when they are prisoners.. And the railroad is only 3,000 miles long. geez.. Vote for Putin, HE can WIN! LikeLike Reply Rich is only the drive by fake outrage democrat in town. LikeLike Reply Thanks Townie…. Our mayor (Terry) is a gaslighter in chief and most of his minions and admirers are also gaslighters. They really don’t have any arguments or ways of defending their ideas or opinions. It is just… you are _______ (insert words like crazy, negative,racist or Nazi) and they are done. They achieve the moral high ground (in their eyes) which gives them the ability to completely disregard anything (no matter if even common sense is involved) that you say. They are able (using this form of gaslighting) to isolate themselves from suffering the cognitive dissonance associated with being presented with ideas that are completely contradictory to their mindsets and value systems.
