This Tuesday, one of the more important US House races is our district. The District runs from South Park Mall, most of South Charlotte and Matthews, then all of the lightly populated counties that border with South Carolina, over to Fayetteville (Home of Fort Bragg).
Mecklenburg County is dominated by the City of Charlotte, increasingly controlled by Democrats, which translates into race. The mayor, city manager, police chief, fire chief and soon to be county sheriff are black. The fear is palpable and didn’t start yesterday.
You may have heard about a school shooting near Matthews NC in the past few days. Why the story is dying quickly nationally is there is no white villain. One black student shot and killed another black student. The school has consciously been made “diverse” by the county, combining poor black and Hispanic children living in apartment complexes with predominantly white upper middle class areas. This has resulted in two things.
The yellow area is Mecklenburg County – almost completely undeveloped. The moment you cross the county line, it becomes wall to wall high density subdivisions who attend Union County schools.
The people in Southern Mecklenburg county are not voting for a Republican preacher, even many moderate Republicans. Mr. Harris won the primary with a huge majority of pro-trump voters in Union County, where Monroe is the biggest city.
