Alabama Election Results

I am the first to admit that I have a lot to learn still when it comes to politics, race issues, culture issues, etc. And this is a half-formed, spur of the moment post…

But one thing I do know is that it makes me SICK to see how many white women voted for Moore in this election.  Honestly, even if their beliefs on matters such as abortion hadn’t made it so they could feel comfortable voting for Jones, I would have liked to see a larger number of write-ins. That was an option, you know, to not vote for either of them. But yet again I see an election that SHOULD NOT have been so close be very close.

And yet again I see that Black Women have stepped up, have voted in numbers and in a way that really made a difference.  And, as someone pointed out somewhere – a great many of those Black Women are church-going faithful people (just a side note).

And it’s yet one more time that Black Women have carried the best interests of the country on their shoulders.  And we need to do better.  We need to do far better.

This post, Black Women Do Not Exist to Save You, I thought, was really good – I’m still figuring out how to say what I think and what I can actually do… but I know boosting this is one thing that I can do.

It’s WELL PAST time we listen. And it’s WELL PAST time we, white folks, DO SOMETHING.
