Before I start, I have a special ask of all my listeners. Please like the Facebook Page Politics Done Right here and follow @EgbertoWillies on Twitter here. Also go directly to the page and share the articles you like. Facebook has changed its algorithm and it is terrorizing good small bloggers and publishers.
A few months ago I was contacted by the husband of a white woman who told me she and a friend were working on a project called “White Nonsense Roundup.” He wanted me to give them coverage. We did a Skype interview and I posted the article. It got over 41K likes and 215K views. Hell, their page is now five times as large as mine. I guess politics is too boring for most. These were two Progressive white women intent on making a difference and that they are doing.
One of the reasons I am empathetic with most people from those who think they are good to the deplorables and racists is because I know we all have the mechanism to change. In my interview with these women, I inadvertently made a couple sexist mistakes that I did not realize till my avid readers explained it to me. I’ve since corrected that issue just like I have corrected the other prejudices that I am aware of or made aware of.
Because I co-opt to my faults I do not shy away from engaging all on just about any issue including race, sexism, and all the other isms. And that is what I want to do today, general racism & sexism by progressives. Here are some of my blog posts I suggest.
- Do Democrats talk the talk while Republicans walk the walk?
- This is the problem with Democrats and we better fix it quickly
- SNL Michael Che threw shade at Democratic Party for taking black vote for granted (VIDEO)
