Facts that cannot be disputed

I’m white.

I’m a white woman.

I’m a white mom.

I’m a white mom to a little girl.

I’m a white mom to a biracial little girl.

I’m a white mom to a half black, half white little girl.

I’m a white mom to a half black, half white little girl in the United States of America.

I’m white.

I’m a white woman.

I’m a white married woman.

I’m a white married woman to a black man.

I’m a white married woman to a black man in the United States of America.

I have privilege because I’m white… but not because I’m a woman.

My husband has privilege because he’s a man… but not because he’s black.

And now my daughter, born during the reign of America’s first black President (half black, half white just like her, she’ll remind you), doesn’t have privilege because she’s half black and female.

These (above) are my feelings on all this… I absolutely refuse to bash, hate, or disrespect anyone, but this just isn’t so easy to digest right now.

  1. I think there is crap on both sides of the issue. It’s so much more than a race issue… but that being said, I have always taught my children (and this includes my children at school) to be good, respectful, hardworking, and educated. Realizing that there’s always an idiot out there… but no one can take your power. I tell them to educate themselves and then stand up for what they believe… in a smart way. Never make yourself look like a fool because it only detracts from what you believe.
    No matter who is in the White House… I affect my world. No one can “make” me feel any certain way. This day and everyday… I choose joy.❤
