I use the “Opinions are like assholes” ideology when I discuss the sensitive subjects at work. It’s not that I am afraid to express my opinions. I have strong opinions about religion, politics, environment, economics, ethics, abortion, welfare and so many other issues that face our fair earth.
Before I voted today, in our Super Tuesday Election, I researched and I read about the issues. Not just who I would vote for, to eventually run for president, but about the Indian gaming laws and the cost per unit for Community Colleges….
I understand that as a Black woman in America our rights are so young. I represent the group of Americans that have had the right to vote in the least amount of elections
It’s just in my workplace, I just choose to avoid these conversations. I feel that I am to educated and to aware to allow myself to get into heated conversations with loud mouth metro-sexual co-workers about why he “just doesn’t like the sound of Obama’s voice”.
I choose not to put my self in a situation where I’m arguing with a fool. Cause you know what the say, from a distance you can’t tell which is which.
