As West Virginians, we are teaching each other, love our neighbors, and when we do not agree to understand our other cultures.
Recently, President Eric Porterfield made comments that are hateful, injurious, and do not reflect the values of our country, our state, and the Republican Party. These opinions are not acceptable and we play them. They have no place in America.
We may not disagree with the policy, politics and direction of our state, but we can disagree with greatness and respect as our non-tolerant and fierce opinions go back, share and hurt us in our state
