If we are labeling ourselves, then I am a black woman who happens to be very liberal. Thanks for sharing your thoughts — your story is relevant for all, not just conservatives. I never understood why conservatives didn’t understand that many (sometimes it feels like most) African-Americans are ultra-conservative and could be a significant segment of the conservative movement if they were approached in a way that acknowledges them as people and not stereotypes and statistics.
This is my first ever Medium post — I wanted to acknowledge your thoughtful message. Have a fantastic day!
