This post is disgusting. This man should not be allowed to be governor after trying to create a confederate history month. Slavery and racism is nothing to celebrate. It should be looked back on in disgust not praise. This man is an atrocious and unbelievable human being. The state of Virginia should look down on him greatly for pushing this confederate celebration month. Despicable and shocking.
Wow! What an embarrassment Virginia is because of this ignorant, hard-headed man. Slavery was an issue that was fought for to be stopped, and this man is celebrating that "the negro is not equal to the white man"? Uh, do the people of Virginia NOT see a problem with this? We've all learned about slavery since we were in elementary, and here he is encouraging it. McDonnell, in my opinion, is a prejudice man. If slavery were the other way around, having the white serve the color, he would not be so into this. People like him give people a bad name. He needs to realize that he is in somewhat higher power being the governor and that people are usually looking up to him... however, in this case, NO ONE SHOULD!
Yes it is always important to celebrate you're history, but certainly not this! This is sick, how could someone in such a high position be so ignorant. You don't see german officials pushing to celebrate the tradition and history of nazi germany!
Celebration refers to something people are proud of and want to relive once every so often to remind them of that pride. I do believe that such history should be studied and understood, however the idea of celebrating it is repulsive! I feel embarassed for the state of Virginia as well as their elected official. This is unfortunate and very gross in my opinion!
This is one of the most offensive things I've ever seen. How this man got the position of governor I have no idea. He is trying to recreate racism and segregation all over again, something that we as a society have spent years fighting for. This is very appalling and disgusting, I would never want a man like that to make decisions for me and for the people in the state that I live. You have to be level headed for a position like that, not some nut job.
I have always wondered why some people would choose to celebrate events in history like this. From what I have found out the people are not celebrating slavery but the south as a whole. And that is perfectly fine, people should be able to celebrate whatever they want. But they should be aware, especially Governor McDonell, of the connotation that the confederate flag and the confederation have on the population as a whole. To most people it represents a dark time in our history, a time that should not be flaunted in this way.
How the heck did this man get to be Governor??? Seriously, confederate history month?? How about slavery history month? It sounds like he wishes to praise and remember the confederation and what it stood for rather than remember the horror morals it had. I wonder what the people of Virginia think about this.. after all they did elect the man. But hopefully, his racism was not evident around election time, because I would hate to think that people knowingly voted for an open racist.
