Whenever I write or comment on race or politics, I get called names or accused of being racist, a privileged white woman, and conservative. I think I’ve figured out why people have this perception of me.

My values, beliefs, and opinions are not black and white; no pun intended. I think most people label themselves as either conservative, liberal, or progressive. I fall into none of those categories, and at the same time, I fall into all of them. I think for myself.

For all of you who think you know me, I’m going to clear up some things:

Politically speaking: I was a registered Democrat until a few years ago when I decided they had gone off the deep end. I changed my political party to Independent. Both parties have lost their brains and don’t know where to find them as far as I’m concerned. I’m very disappointed in my country, the USA, at this time. I think President Clinton and President Obama were the last true leaders in the U.S. I don’t care who Clinton had sex with. That’s his business and had nothing to do with running the country. I think the Obamas were the classiest family to ever live in the White House.

Climate change: Whether it is man-made or a natural cycle we’re going through, I don’t know. I’m not a scientist. However, I do think we need to do all we can to avoid contributing to it. China is the worst polluter…
