“The start of 2019 was indeed rough, but I think we finally solved racism by calling out our foolish politicians when they do horrible things,” said Richmond resident Glenn Norwood. While the state’s capital is still home to several monuments honoring Confederate leaders that were erected during the Jim Crow era, Norwood continued assuredly, “Everyone has definitely learned their lesson, so now we can finally put racial issues behind us.”
At press time, Virginia residents were reportedly patting themselves on the back for seemingly abolishing the complex and institutionalized form of discrimination that has plagued the entire country since its birth, feeling sure that nothing bad will ever happen again.
