If the two women and the male minority who dropped off from the republican race were still in it, do you think race would be as big of an issue? We will never know now.
We have seen the headlines that race relations are worse in America despite the country’s first “Black” president looking out for his country. What I know is this this. If Obama was “unfit” for job, he would not be in office today. America may have moved past auctioning its “black” race and showing the world that it has been improving race issues, yet she has a long way to go of showing it. Speaking from an “immigrant” perspective more is always needed, but we do too little exploiting the great things America has accomplished on race. Some people in America did not expect this major improvement so quickly and are still stuck in the past. Sometimes we hope for something and when it is a reality, we either fail to see the good of it or try to undo it. This is why the media and so called politicians make race a huge issue and do nothing to help make it better.
While the majority of Americans fought to see race relations improved, the truth is hard to ignore when you watch political races, the media and people representing us in government and at work. The divisive words are hard for an immigrant like me to hear from the media, my politicians and bosses at work. I question what Americans, those who are over 50 (all Races) born, raised in this country all their lives truly feel. The improved race problem in America is no different than gender inequality women face in the country. America can try to eliminate its race issues. Before this happen, Americans (all the immigrants) need to be honest and work hard to eliminate gender inequality, which will ultimately minimize its race issues.
