These days, it can be difficult to admit you are a conservative without receiving backlash from friends, family and colleagues.
This is especially true if you are a conservative who happens to be a person of color.
Black conservatives, for instance, are often labeled “Uncle Toms,” or told they are voting against their own interests (even when that is demonstrably false).
Or a famous actress might imply that you’re homophobic.
Actress Kerry Washington recently spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about her role in the upcoming movie “The Prom,” in which Washington plays a conservative PTA president who wants to cancel a prom rather than permit a gay student to attend.
