Newly elected Virginia Republican Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears said Wednesday she is out to destroy “narratives about race” and rejects being a “victim.”
Sears shared the comments during a Fox News interview on “The Story,” challenging liberal black commentator Joy Reid to invite her to appear on her MSNBC program.
“I’m destroying all of the narratives about race. Look at me, I am a heartbeat away from the governorship in case anything happens to the governor. And how are you going to tell me then, I’m a victim?” Sears said during the interview.

“And I didn’t do anything special to get here except stay in school and study. I took advantage of the opportunities that are available here in America. I wasn’t born here. This is not my culture, not my country. But it allowed me — America allowed me to come and do for myself and for my family,” she added.
Sears also criticized those who would claim America is a racist society focused on white privilege.
“It’s not 1963 when my father came at the height of the Civil Rights movement, 17 days before Martin Luther King Jr. gave his ‘I Have a Dream’ speech. We’re better than that,” Sears said.
The newly elected Lt. Gov. is breaking barriers and upsetting the liberal narrative in a refreshing win in the Commonwealth State.
