Virstyne and her partner April have been doing Truther Talk since 2014. What began as an exploration of the safety of vaccines for children led them to a wider range of topics, eventually leading Virstyne to politics. She is skeptical about what we are all told by our leaders and the media and she examines issues seeking the truth. She is a refreshing and interesting voice that needs to be heard.
In our conversation, we discussed her political awakening and how her views have evolved. She also discussed her views on how history is taught, particularly Black history and slavery and how it affects Blacks and Whites in America. We also talked about what Candace Owens called "ideological slavery," where African-Americans are expected to play a certain ideological role rather than have their own opinion on things.
Virstyne Henry is a teacher, singer-songwriter and video blogger and extremely bright and engaging and I hope you enjoy our conversation. You'll be seeing a lot more of her on Political Storm!
