Discussion: Tenn. Governor: We Need 'More Open Conversations About Race'

Discussion for article #233969

Because being a white racist deserves some respect and is somehow a “Christian” value? I don’t get it. But we have seen this in the USA for over 250 years.

Race? How can they move on to lecture us about race? They aren’t finished talking about rape yet.

It took Bill long enough to call her out—she made the statement a while back.

I happen to know Bill Haslam pretty well.
He’s a decent man and a mediocre governor.

He’d be a better governor if he found a spine and separated himself from Lamar Alexander, whose Senate seat the Haslam family wants handed to Bill on a silver platter.

We already have an NAAWP. It’s called the Republican Party.

Why sure, that W stands for “Western”. Alrighty then!

I know that when I think of anything Western, Tennessee immediately pops into mind.

I think “western” was meant to mean “European.”

You know. White.

Not only that, we already have an actual NAAWP. It was founded by David Duke after he left the Klan to become “respectable”.

I know. Couldn’t help myself, though.

You know where Obama was born? Hawaii. That’s REALLY west!

Tennessee Governor Slams GOP Lawmaker

“Slams”? “She probably shouldn’t have done that” is a “slam”? You slam something with a sledgehammer, not with a feather duster. I suppose “Tennessee Governor Mildly Rebukes GOP Lawmaker” wouldn’t get nearly as many clicks though.

Why doesn’t he or she go ahead and have that conversation then, instead of having a conversation about having a conversation.

Sheila Butt is a privileged white woman that just wants more.
