Vote for the Person

Some people said they voted for President Obama for president because he is Black.  Some people said they voted for Hillary Clinton for president because she is a woman.  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

"The true woman will not be exponent of another, or allow another to be such for her. She will be her own individual self... Stand or fall by her own individual wisdom and strength... She will proclaim the "glad tidings of good news" to all women, that woman equally with man was made for her own individual happiness, to develop... every talent given to her by God, in the great work of life."  Susan B. Anthony.

If the most important leaders of the civil rights movements for both Blacks and for women proclaim equality for both groups, then the duty is the vote without regard to race or sex.  We should vote for the best candidate.  We should not vote for the white, the man, the Black, or the woman, but for the best person; based on their principles, their intentions, their policies; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
