I'm a Muslim, a woman and an immigrant. I voted for Trump.
by Asra Q. Nomani
A lot is being said now about the "silent secret Trump supporters."
This is my confession — and explanation: I — a 51-year-old, a Muslim, an immigrant woman "of color" — am one of those silent voters for Donald Trump. And I'm not a "bigot," "racist," "chauvinist" or "white supremacist," as Trump voters are being called, nor part of some "whitelash."
In the winter of 2008, as a lifelong liberal and proud daughter of West Virginia, a state born on the correct side of history on slavery, I moved to historically conservative Virginia only because the state had helped elect Barack Obama as the first African American president of the United States.
