People don’t have to like Hillary Clinton. People don’t have to vote for Hillary in the primaries. Or in the general election. But much like the anti-Obama vitriol, everyone should check in with themselves as to why they don’t like her.
Much of what I see posted by liberals, progressives (of which I consider myself), and conservatives is sexist.
Bias is a scientific fact. The goal of “good people” is to be aware and work through inherent bias, not to think: “Well, I’m a good person so I must not be racist or sexist.” It’s not magic or an admonishment against our character. We are less racist and sexist after we understand our world, society, neighborhood, family and personal lives and confront the inherent racism and sexism in our thoughts and actions. Good character is about the work involved in battling against prejudice.
Super Tuesday is here: Vote your conscience, not your bias.
