Probably stay out of their way. We’ve come a long way in the state of Georgia. We don’t need things like this being divisive. We think we have put most of those issues behind us. None of us condone things that would send the wrong message about where we are with regard to race relations. But by the same token, I think that people understand that some of these are just local issues and private issues, and not something that the state government needs to have its finger involved in.
Yes, Governor Deal, the South has had a VERY STRONG HISTORY of folks just being able to work out all those local, “private” race relations issues on their own without some higher authority having to step in and say “HEY, WHITE PEOPLE, CUT THE SHIT.”
