This is so great. “segregated diversity” is an accurate characterization of how the city is set up. Totally agree. We have to get more people to have seats at the table.

Can you imagine the hell raised if some group calling them selves white RVA showed up at the table wanting to discuss whatever?

It is just like the late night commercial for a certain movie channel that states , ” television our way “.

There were a lot of great points in this. I hope they continue with more of the same discussions. Elected officials (and potential ones) need to know how the community feels.

John, I do know what you are saying. I just think we as a community would be better off if such black / white labels could be eliminated.

If you are hungry, cold, afraid, abused and put in impossible environments, it does not matter what color you are . Black skin and white skin gets equally as hungry, cold and afraid and constantly making racial divisions waters down these very important issues for all of us.
