About Southern Scrutiny

This is a nonpartisan blog with a focus on justice, truth, and transparency. This focus includes prioritizing and amplifying the voices, experiences, and goals of Black people and people of color in the South.

Although I'm sure I'll write about candidates that I support along the way, I'm not a Democrat or a Republican. I don't have any other party affiliation, either.

Since I started speaking up on social media and protesting with local residents against police brutality and for Black lives, I've pissed a lot of people off. Friends, family, and strangers. It's been weird adjusting to all this confrontation when I tend to despise it, but open discussion is very important to me. So, I keep at it. This site is part of the effort to keep at it.

I don't believe we will ever be able to truly move forward as a community if we can't handle the discomfort of these conversations.

About me:

My name is Ashley. I'm a nerdy white woman in my mid-thirties. I'm also a wife, mother, and Mississippi resident.

I've been self-employed for most of my adult life as a business owner, website designer and developer, and other freelance jobs. All words and opinions are my own, unless otherwise stated and sourced.
