Ask Me Again Why I Do Not Miss Virginia
As many know, this past summer we moved home to Ohio after living in the Commonwealth of Virginia for over seven years. There is very little I miss from Virginia. Very Little.
This time of year, I reminded of one of the reasons: Lee-Jackson King day. What? Yes. In the Commonwealth of Virginia, they honor General Lee, Stonewall Jackson and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.... all in the same day.
This is no joke. Simply amazing. And this is at the government level. Need to see what is going on in the City of Chesapeake (A major city near Virginia) then click on their website. Go ahead, I’ll wait.
Amazing, isn’t it?
Want to be amazed by the ingrained racism that is Virginia? The read the comments about this here. And Virginia is the "Northern" Southern state.
