She was more aware of her "blackness" because she had a chip on her shoulder and a low self-esteem. She has problems with accepting who she is for some reason. She can't look beyond superficial things like skin color. Though I do agree that the only blackness she should be aware of is the blackness of her heart. No, conservatives are not the ones obsessed with race, skin color or any other silly, irrelevant physical characteristic--it is only the lefties and Democrats who are the real racists and bigots. They always have to put people into categories and label them. Leftism is an ideology for losers. These are miserable people who want to put down others and hurt others to make themselves feel better. That is why so many are tyrants and control freaks. They never could fit in with society or the competitiveness of human nature, so they have to manipulate and find ways to make people bow down to them. Leftism is for the maladjusted and inept. If any of those losers really wanted to make something of themselves without hurting others, they would no longer subscribe to leftist ideology.
