Racism in America

“What racism?” people cry, “Didn’t we elect a black guy for president?” (Implying: “Doesn’t that prove that racism is over in America?”).

A few points:

First, on November 4, 2008, the United States did what only one other country that I know of ever has ever done — elect a president from a minority race in a country with a different majority race. (Peru is the only other country I can think of to have done that) That a still predominantly white U.S. would elect a black man as head of state was stunning to many. That historic accomplishment is a sign of great progress and a hope of better things to come for racial equality and justice in the United States.

Sarah Palin: American Idiot

Sarah Palin. Love her or hate her this woman has made a splash in the media. There are whispers of this woman possibly running for President in 2012. This intrigues me and I have decided to read up on Sarah to see where she stands.

Sarah Palin was born in Sandpoint, Idaho and her family relocated to Alaska when she was an infant. In 1984 Palin was named Miss Wasilla and placed third in the Miss Alaska pageant. Sarah college hopped and finally received her bachelor's degree in communications with an emphasis in journalism in 1987 from University of Idaho.
