Re: “Richmond's Craft Beer Industry is Overwhelmingly White. How Can That Be Changed?

Metropolitan Richmond is not 50% black. The City of Richmond is, but not the metro area. The Richmond Metropolitan Statics area (MSA) Race breaks down to 62% White, 30% Black, 3.6% Asian, 1.7% Other
http://www.grpva.com/data-and-downloads/de…

This website shows Richmond area 58% White, 29% Black with the remaining filled out by Asians and Hispanics.
https://censusreporter.org/profiles/31000U…

I (who am white) don't buy craft beer for price reasons. One or several beers at $5.00 a pop adds up very quickly. Same goes (only more so) for craft cocktails.

This article is just another in a long series that tries to insert race where it does not belong.

Re: “Is Monument Avenue Set in Stone?

"The compromise was popular among Southern members of the Senate, but it was generally unacceptable to the Republicans, who opposed the expansion of slavery beyond the states where it already existed into the territories. The opposition of their party's leader, President-elect Abraham Lincoln, was crucial"

"Both the House of Representatives and the Senate rejected Crittenden's proposal. It was part of a series of last-ditch efforts to provide the Southern states with sufficient reassurances to forestall their secession during the final session of Congress prior to the Lincoln administration taking office."

Doesn't Style do a related story on this every two weeks?

Re: “Update: Two Richmond Businesses Will Offer Discounts to Women

Perhaps they should price their goods on a sliding scale. Most of the women in my office are paid significantly more than I get. And good for them, they worked hard for it. I'd shop there too if I could get a discount too, but I know a good book store downtown that sells brand new books for $4.00. I'll probably keep going there.

Re: “Update: Two Richmond Businesses Will Offer Discounts to Women

I would guess (hope) this is unconstitutional.

Re: “Why They Keep Fighting: Richmond Protesters Explain Their Resistance to Trump's America

I agree with you APKIII on the first half off your post. These radicals all have their own causes and they unite together to increase their numbers. That said, people have the right to protest and "peaceably assemble". They need to weed out the violent, extremist factions that use these protests to riot and provoke violence. There are definitely loonies among them.

Obama, by the way, presided over the longest period of economic growth in American history. Yes many of those jobs were low wages, but many were not. Thousands of jobs go unfulfilled and thousands of others are filled by H1b visa holders because there are not enough Americans technically qualified to fill them. That's a problem that needs addressing.

Re: “Opposing Rallies Converge on Capitol Square

Todd, you hold Tim Kaine responsible for the activities of his son? You must not know much about 24 year olds, but they are grown men.

Wilder. do you have any evidence that Tim Kaine spit on American soldiers? His son is in the U.S. Marines stationed overseas.
