I don't think you should apologize, I could tell you next to nothing about your Country other than I LOVE Edinburough, Craig Ferguson, and
As far as your politics, I know even less.
I also think it is a damn shame that you know more about our Country's history than....(what do my fellow American's think the percentage is
here?) at least 70% of our own citizens.
Don't know about the wide spread branding of slaves but they were Constitutionaly viewed as "property" from the Dred Scott decision.
Mostly accurate though.
I can assure you that Black, woman, or old white guy, isn't going to play that much of a roll in this election. It comes down to Democrat or
Republican. We could throw you in as the Democratic nominee and you would get a huge amount of votes. (not to mention the backing of the Hemp growers
We really are color blind these days in America BUT what people don't recognize is that we still have "cultural" issues. A black man in a
business suit is treated better than a white guy named Earl from a trailer park.
In the U.S. it is about "status" if you have money you have your status.
Look at Oprah or Bill Cosby. It is about economic status, not color or gender.
....Obama is a Harvard Law Grad. We don't need an equal rights or affirmative action reason to vote for him. Hillary is a part of the same old
Washington BS that we here are tired as hell of.
.....In short.. (too late) Obama will be our next President, unless something stupid happens......and hey, If Obama wins Pennsylvania tonight it is
all over. (my prediction...he loses by 7%)
