Do only male caucasians live in Manassas?

Then why on earth when you go to http://manassascity.org/Index.aspx?NID=153.  There are only white males represented on the council.   A. not as single woman. Not a single black-american, arab, asian, latino.... I could be wrong, maybe one of those guys is gay.

no diversity in manassas though?? C'mon buddy

What's up with that?  yall need to get out and vote...

If white males are qualified to do the job, they should be there. Why put a minority person there, just for the sake, that a minority person "has" to be there, whether qualified for the job!!or not? I am a minority, And i beleive that if white males are not qualified to do the job, they shouldnt be there, but if a woman or another person can do a better job, they should be there. It doesn't matter the sex or the race of the person, as long as its a qualified and able person to handle the job effeciently, wisely and work for us all.

Natassia, that's like racist and sexist...your bills would be higher if there were minorities and women??? I love the fact that you both have focused on the White men..I clearly acknowledged there are no women, of any race. The question really isnt a diss at the fact that there are only white people... Its really a comment on why aren't there any minorities. Sure white men are qualified to do the job....fairly certain folks from other groups are as well...I need to see representation....I need these people to step up.

Matta, I am not racist, I am a fact-ist. Women and minorities are, statistically speaking, more likely to vote for the Democratic Party, and when it comes to issues like raising taxes, women and minorities are more likely to vote for raising taxes than men, and white men in particular. That is probably because women and minorities are disproportionately more likely to depend on welfare programs and/or less likely to pay net income taxes. The places with the highest property tax rates have disproportionately high ratios of voting minorities. Look, don't hate the messenger. The fact is that taxes would likely be higher. And I say that speaking as a woman with minority relatives and friends. Why do you think that minorities can only be properly "represented" by other minorities? Why do you think women can only be represented by other women? Admit it. You are the sexist and racist one here. I don't give a hoot what race or what sex a politician is. I care about what they stand for. And unfortunately most women and minority politicians stand for things I cannot agree with, including higher taxes.

Yes I totally agree, Minorities should step up and come forward, and show that they can do the job too. I am sure there are many talented people out there, who can do the job better, than the people we already have.

Look, if you're dumb enough to vote for a woman because she's a woman, or a Black because he's Black, you're going to get dumb incompetent people in office, such as Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Try voting for the candidate who can do the best job in office, and who will shrink our tyrannical governments.
