Yes great points one and all. Also, please let me add (for those here that may not know me well) that my original statement is in no way stated in reference to ALL black Richmond citizens and/or leaders. I do not want to come off as racist, as that was not my intent. My point is that many people here in the VA area (some in office - mostly minorities) only appear to recognize CW history when it can be used as a pawn in their political agenda and they tend to use opportunities (when available) to "play the race card" in order to gain public support. Not all - but some. The MOC and WHofC are wonderful places that pay tribute to BOTH black and white Virginians - yet they are consistently disrespected by the local Government and Corporate BigWigs.
