Red, white, Black and Blue

So glad the election madness is over! I will not reveal who I voted for as it is not important. I really feel as tho It brought out the worst in alot of Americans. Instead of united I feel as though we became a nation of generalizations and stereotypes. More single women voted this year…Good job!  Our ancestors fought hard in our past to create equal rights for women and we are taking advantage of it!  I’m not a feminist by any means but proud just the same. As Latinos also made of of a large percentage of voters as well, we are reminded of the role they play in our society and how it is not to be dismissed. I was sadly disappointed in the amount of racism our youth portrayed, reading Facebook and twitter posts, I was appalled. Kids who are raised in our generation of equal rights and interracial relationships should not have been so quick to turn on each other. Racism is quite obviously prevalent in our communities and is something we need to work on. Everyone makes a difference!
