I Am A Trump Supporter And I’m NOT Racist, Stop Calling Me Something So Hurtful

After reading a recent article by The Atlantic, I really noticed how easily people throw out the phrase, “You're racist!" It's a common statement made now, especially within our political discourse. Donald Trump Jr. expressed how sad he was with this phrase being thrown out nonstop, especially toward his father.

Toward the end of the article, it highlighted that accusing a politician of being racist also accuses their voters/supporters of the same thing. Many supporters said over the past few days their support of our president has strengthened, and I must say I feel the same way.

While our president has been called racist multiple times, we as supporters have been too. Many of the things we are being called racist on are actually words just taken out of context. It is the liberals who look at us that way.

I'm tired of being called a word I never want to use.

I am tired of our president being put down and as a supporter, I have been put down as well.

I am tired of the shaming I have received as a supporter of Donald Trump.

I am thankful for Candace Owens for speaking up. She spoke the words loud for those to understand. We are tired of it and we are not racist. We are not the awful words we are called and neither is our president.

I support Donald Trump, but I am not racist.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
