6. Fortunately no one on my family or any of my close friends voted for him

But I have plenty of friends and acquaintances who did.

I used to try not to mention it - friendship thicker than water and all that.

Then I realized my silence was part of the problem. These people voted for, not only to undermine everything I care about but to undermine ME, as an African American woman. They donít get to do that and then get a pass. They needed to hear from me and take direct and uncomfortable heat for their decision - which I provide them at every opportunity.

A few have changed their minds, admitted they made a terrible mistake and apologized. Some just look embarrassed and sheepish but donít try to defend themselves anymore. Very few try to justify themselves anymore because they know I will drop kick them through the window - they have the good sense to keep their damned mouths shut.
