Born and raised in Southeastern Ohio in the heart of Appalachia. You could call me a poor white boy. Family was all democrats and union members. I joined the Army at 18 at got out of that shithole. Ronald Reagan was my first Commander in Chief and is a hero to me to this day. Made a career out of the Army and now live the American dream in Virginia Beach. My relatives and old friends in Ohio are still living as poor as ever and blames the government for it. I just shake my head to the ignorance and lack of motivation to do better.
As a white man I love all people and races. I believe the military instills that in you. I've served in combat with black soldiers and I've lead them into combat and when bullets fly overhead race is the last thing on your mind. I've seen dying white soldiers and dying black soldiers and the tears were always the same for me.
My hope is to give insight to folks on here and to dispell the myth that white conservatives are racists. Thank you for allowing me to join your site and God bless you and America.
