Ok, so its no surprise that the issue of race has been played in this years presidential election campaign. The issue has sparked much needed conversations in my opinion. Unfortunatley, the issue of GENDER has been lost in this whole thing. Everybody is so focused on playing the race card that I think people now believe that Hillary Clinton has a penis. Unlike Barack Obama being black, her being a woman and making a strong bid for the democratic nomination says alot about how far women have come in America. You may look back at Affirmative Action and say that Obama is where he is because of it. This may be true, as its also debatable considering him having the privilige of educated parents, and being under the guidance of white grand-parents. But I doubt that even for a second you’d think the same of Hillary. The truth is, more white women benefited from Affirmative Action than black people in general. You might not wanna believe it, but its a fact; do your homework and see for yourself. But what if Hillary was black? Would she be considered a viable candidate, minus being the wife of a former president of course? Would there be less mudslinging among the democratic party if both candidates were the same race but different genders like they are now? What if Barack Obama was a black woman, would he still be the leading candidate that he is? I don’t think he would. And thats because he would be black woman, and nothing else. I dunno, maybe America is afraid of strong black women. Or afraid of women period.
What do you think?
