Throughout history, a high percentage of white women, have quietly supported their white husbands as Slavery, The Trail of Tears, Discrimination against Asian, Latinx, LGBTQ, Anti- Immigration, Jim Crow and other atrocities were being committed towards people who were not white and/or straight.
53% of white women voted for Trump. Susan Collins’ vote will be handing Brett Kavanaugh a seat on the Supreme Court.
53% of white women would prefer to conspire with their men,to support their race, rather than support women and men of all races. The rest of us stand to lose everything that has been won through the literal blood, sweat and tears of our ancestors.
Women of color tend to look out for everyone. Only 4% of Black Women voted for Trump. When pedophile Roy Moore ran in Alabama for the Senate, over 80% of Black women went out to vote to keep him from being elected.
Black women keep trying to save this country. I really wonder if it’s time for us to stop. We are not appreciated. As Malcolm X said ”The most disrespected woman in America, is the Black Woman. The most un-protected person in America is the Black Woman. The most neglected person in America, is the Black Woman”
Women like Susan Collins will always get in the way to hinder our progress.
This past week has been exhausting, infuriating, exasperating, triggering and pure hell for survivors of sexual assault and for people who believe Dr. Ford’s testimony. The temperament Kavanaugh displayed showed us who he really is. Those who are voting for him are turning a blind eye and flipping us the bird.
The so-called leader of this country mocked Dr. Ford and the audience sitting behind him laughed and cheered. What message is that sending to people who are sexually assaulted? Their pain is now a punchline for the tangerine jackass who didn’t win the popular vote.
GOP Senators seem to forget they work for their constituents, not for their political party. As a nation we are deeply divided. Checks and balances are unbalanced. Bigotry is out in the open. We are in turmoil.
Democracy is dying and 53% are part of the reasons why. We must vote out the old white men like McConnell, Grassley and Hatch, who could care less if you are assaulted, injured, shot or killed. If we are to survive as a nation, we have to do everything we can to save it.
Please register to vote if you haven’t done so. We must cast our ballots to put upright what has been turned upside down. Please get your friends together and VOTE!!
