SaveFauquier - "Racism and prejudices will always exist on all sides!!"
You say it will always exist but you didn't say WHY. WHY?

Weep no more, M'Lady, please follow the advice of this former black law enforcement officer from Tucson, Arizona and show some respect for the sense and sensibilities of our black Christian Brothers and Sisters and neighbors here in Fauquier:
Brandon Tatum, an African-American former Tucson police officer, went viral on social media for delivering an incredible video response to the nationwide Black Lives Matter protests and riots that have taken place since the death of George Floyd in police custody on Memorial Day.
“I’ve got a question for you protesters out there,” says Tatum at the beginning of the video. “I’ve got a question for you SJWs out there. For all you people that are putting that little black box on your Instagram. I’ve got a question for you. What have you accomplished? What has been accomplished by your virtue signaling? What has been accomplished by all of your protesting and looting and vandalizing property? What have you accomplished?”
Tatum said that he’s “sick of black folks being so disingenuous” about their interactions with the police in order to get attention.
“Most black people do not have negative interactions with police officers. In 2019, there were 44 million black people in the United States of America. Nine (9) African-Americans were shot who were unarmed,” claimed Tatum.
The former cop ended his video by slamming “virtue signaling” white liberals who push debunked conspiracy theories such as the racist idea of “white privilege.”
“White people. I need you to hear me real clearly. You better stop with all of that B.S. virtue signaling. You saying you have white privilege don’t make, somehow make me feel any better about how racist you are. The fact that you believe in white privilege shows me that you are cognitively dissonant from reality. You are telling black people when you say you have white privilege or acknowledging your white privilege or that you have a better life, that you are better than black people. That you’re going to go further in life than black people and that black people need you to somehow acknowledge and give them a handout so they can have a decent life. You’re not operating with common sense.”
If you don't understand that message, may I recommend our Elected Official take another message to heart from the John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University, Dr. Walter E. Williams, who has granted you a Proclamation of Amnesty and Pardon:
Proclamation of Amnesty and Pardon Granted to All Persons of European Descent -
Whereas, Europeans kept my forebears in bondage some three centuries toiling without pay,
Whereas, Europeans ignored the human rights pledges of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution,
Whereas, the Emancipation Proclamation, the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Amendments meant little more than empty words,
Therefore, Americans of European ancestry are guilty of great crimes against my ancestors and their progeny.
But, in the recognition Europeans themselves have been victims of various and sundry human rights violations to wit: the Norman Conquest, the Irish Potato Famine, Decline of the Hapsburg Dynasty, Napoleonic and Czarist adventurism, and gratuitous insults and speculations about the intelligence of Europeans of Polish descent,
I, Walter E. Williams, do declare full and general amnesty and pardon to all persons of European ancestry, for both their own grievances, and those of their forebears, against my people.
Therefore, from this day forward Americans of European ancestry can stand straight and proud knowing they are without guilt and thus obliged not to act like damn fools in their relationships with Americans of African ancestry.
Walter E. Williams, Gracious and Generous Grantor

Racism and prejudices will always exist on all sides!! Recruit and retain the best employees. Hire competent managers/administrators. This takes more funding not less. God bless our police officers who are under attack. It is obvious that anarchy has been permitted to take over many communities. Support your local businesses and our officers. Makes them your charity. The coranavirus appears to now be politically ignored??? Watch Candice Owen`s videos on Prager University.

It will depend on their insatiable need for virtue signalling.
