    Yea I’m a fairly liberal person but he was just a good man. Some of his policies and actions as president I don’t agree with but I hold no personal ill will towards him. I don’t know if any major personal shortcomings of his

    RIP Papa Bush. Not a man without controversy OTL or ITTL but always seemed like a personable guy particularly as a father and in his post-presidency (or post-PMship in this case). Hope Jeb is holding up ok.

    I think New Englanders might be shocked to know they got annexed by their brothers to the frozen north.

    African Americans are an ethnic group of Americans with total or partial ancestry from any of the black racial groups of Africa. The term typically refers to descendants of enslaved black people who are from the United States.

    Black and African Americans are the third largest racial and ethnic group in the United States (after White Americans and Hispanic and Latino Americans). Most African Americans are descendants of enslaved peoples within the boundaries of the present United States. On average, African Americans are of West/Central African and European descent, and some also have Native American ancestry. According to US Census Bureau data, African immigrants generally do not self-identify as African American. The overwhelming majority of African immigrants identify instead with their own respective ethnicities (~95%). Immigrants from some Caribbean, Central American and South American nations and their descendants may or may not also self-identify with the term.

    African-American history starts in the 16th century, with peoples from West Africa forcibly taken as slaves to Spanish America, and in the 17th century with West African slaves taken to English colonies in North America. After the founding of the United States, black people continued to be enslaved, and the last four million black slaves were only liberated after the Civil War in 1871. Due to notions of white supremacy which existed across the south, the United States Federal Government occupied the southern United States and instituted sweeping land reforms in the thirty years following the Civil War, which expanded and protected voting and civil rights across the United States. This period was known as Reconstruction and has widely been credited with building their status as equals to White Americans. Today, African Americans constitute the majority of rural landowners across the southern United States and majorities or pluralities in several urban areas. African Americans have served in most federal offices, with the notable exception of President and Vice-President of the United States. Both parties have nominated African Americans to lead the United States, with Tennessee Senator Edward Brooke nominated by the Nationals in the 1984 U.S. Presidential Election and more recently Georgia Senator John Lewis was nominated by the Social Labor party during the 2008 U.S. Presidential Election. Brooke lost to Walter Mondale and Lewis lost to Victor Ashe.

    Arapaho is a state of the Western United States encompassing most of the southern Rocky Mountains as well as the northeastern portion of the Colorado Plateau and the western edge of the Great Plains. It is the 5th largest geographically and 31st most populous U.S. State. The estimated population of Arapaho was 3,124,532 on July 1, 2018, an increase of 3.15% from the 2010 United States Census.

    The state was named for the indigenous Arapaho people who inhabited the state's plains, and it was admitted to the Union as the 34th state by proclamation of President James Blaine on September 1st, 1879.

    Arapaho is bordered by Idaho to the north, Nebraska to the northeast, Kansas to the east, Oklahoma to the southeast, Arizona to the southwest, Deseret to the west, and the Canadian province of Columbia to the northwest. Arapaho is known for it's wide variety of landscapes and natural beauty. It is part of the western United States, and is considered one of the two Mountain States.

    With a population of 343,168, Denver is the capital and largest city in Arapaho, and has been the centre of a significant amount of the state's most recent population growth.

    Like its neighbours to the north, east, and west, Arapaho is known for being a state which politically leans to the right, although Social Labor has been able to win state-wide elections in past elections. Historically, Arapaho has been a progressive state, being one of the first to allow women to vote, as well as to elect the first Socialist United States governor. In recent years the state had shifted to the right but an increase in the urban population has led the state to become more competitive and return to its progressive roots. Arapaho's senior senator, Dick Cheney gained national notoriety after losing his first re-election primary in 1990 over his support for Same-Sex Marriage, but went on to win the general election as a write-in candidate with over forty percent of the vote in a three-way race. He has since been one of the strongest supporters for LGBTQ+ rights in the Senate, but otherwise sits on the right-wing of the party caucus.

    The US is perfectly balanced, as all things should be.
