discrimination is present discrimination, the only remedy to present discrimination is future discrimination. we are talking about racism being taught to our children. terry mcauliffe calls and a dog whistle and thank god glenn youngkin has stated when he is elected governor and we the independent voter showing up in force when he is elected governor he will ensure crt is not - >> we set to the measure trickles down into the school system and that is why parents are upset. you are a peruvian american and you think there needs to be change in virginia. >> i didn't see any improvement and i see a real problem. the energy, it is a place to
leave, to raise a family, to improve our economy. he's not only going to be the governor for latinos to end discrimination and that is the reason latinos, trying to participate more and more, to support him and the economy and safety. carley: president biden announced he will be campaigning for terry mcauliffe next weekend former president obama will be doing the same thing so he has heavy hitters backing him. does that concern you? >> not really because it doesn't mean that much to us by this point. we really want to change it in virginia and we are in good
shape, we are going to win this election. >> fox news poll shows inflation is the number one concern, do you think that will motivate people to head to the polls? >> i believe so. i always think twice about prices but like i said before things are getting out of hand. i just got this week, somebody claiming unemployment, this is getting our hands, taking this course of all the mishandling. >> you are energized voters in thanks for making a points loud and clear. thank you for joining us.
