The Presidency

When people say they thought Obama would solve racism just because he was the first black president, as if racism would magically disappear with no help from anyone just because Obama was elected, and now the media and the people are disappointed because he didn’t end racism - I say, instead, that the first black president has opened our eyes to the racism that is still rampant in our country - the same as Hillary Clinton is exposing the sexism and misogyny that still exists.

They cannot solve it alone, if indeed solving it is a goal, which I wonder about now that we are knee-deep and shit-high in election 2016.

It is up to us to find solutions or we will die trying and our country, divided, will not stand.
