I've come along way with my understanding of racism over the last few years. I thought we Americans were getting through our issues at a good pace.
Sadly we are not. It’s going to take a long time before, “Can’t we all just get along”, becomes a reality.
Did a great number of people vote for him simply because he is a black man, and potentially our FIRST Black President? Hell ya they did! Am I shocked
or surprised by this? No not really. I’m not black, and it made me feel good inside when we finally got some color in the White house. Did I get
pissed about these people for voting the way they did? At first I did; Then, I thought about it.
Did a great number of people vote for the white guy because he wasn’t the black guy? You bet your bum they did! Am I shocked or surprised by this?
No not really. Some people fear change and anyone different than themselves. Do I get pissed when I think about that truth? I used to, until I thought
I personally CAN NOT WAIT for the first Black Woman President to come along!! Or even, white woman, Latino woman, Latino man, Asian man, Asian woman,
gay man, gay black woman, black man, the list goes on and on I suppose….
By then all this dumb snit will be behind us.
Truth is, Stupidity and Ignorance come in all colors.
So no, I don’t blame any of them for being stupid it’s a waste of my emotions.
I just wish I could live in a time when none of this mattered. I want to go back to the future
People are stupid.
Our President isn't a black man by the way. He's bi-racial, and that is the irony of it all!!!
Sorry meant to put this in the rant section.
