First, let me start off by saying I look "white" but I'm not.  I have native American and African American blood in me.  My daughter is 1/4 Puerto Rican.  So we are not a "white" family.   The son of the plantation owner ran off with one of the freed slaves, and that's part of my bloodline.  They had to go to another state because it was illegal to marry at that time in Arkansas where the plantation was.  So I have a dog in this race.


The African American race.  I watched Beyonce's and I did not find it "positive" or "supportive" of the African American race.  Anita Hill was an amazing woman.  After she came forward against Clarence Thomas, more women than ever started speaking up about sexual harassment.  I remember the change in the workplace.  I remember the way women were treated in the workforce completely change after the hearings.  This was an educated woman who changed the world and she was African American.

I've seen May…
