Actions speak louder than words. We all know the say by now. What happens when no actions follow with any words from those we elect to speak and make the best decision for us? When will a senator, mayor etc. choose to make a decision because he or she knows that’s what best for the country, especially if that decision determines if you die or live tomorrow?
It is time that officials take their emotions, beliefs out of vital decisions and understand the constitution of this country. As much America has to offer, the rights granted as a result of the constitution. It is sad to see so many immoral, chauvinistic and incompetent elected officials claiming to represent others, when deep down, their interest is what matters.
For every life living today, a life has been taken. This is why freedom and fairness must be fought for in all fonts. Our problems today are Wars, Racism and Poverty, which equals to violence in our countries. The cities in America and the rest of the world that are and have been dealing with chronic violence have the highest uneducated, unemployment, wealth gap and racism. Violence is triggered by one thing or another, it doesn’t come from nowhere. Let’s stop bury our dirty laundry and face reality.
“A change is brought about because ordinary people do extraordinary things.”
― Barack Obama
America’s little secret about race is no secrete if you’re thinking it is, and it won’t go away by re-electing Obama. The idea that America does not want to re-elect its first black president is both true and false. The country expected much from Obama because he inspired them to the point they were blind. That’s not the president’s fault; it is the peoples’ failure to face reality they were and now facing. Some expected bi-partisan and a fight, instead Obama tried to make America a priority, which was his job in the first place.

We’ve seen stereotypes of women ranging from the boardroom to the bedroom; that of the dragon lady boss, to the portrayal of the juvenile “kitten” dressed in a “baby-doll” outfit, to the subservient female dominated by men dripping with machismo, to dangerously thin and impossibly beautiful waifs, and finally, to the promiscuous “femme fatale”. In hip hop music, women are often portrayed as “hoes” while television sitcoms and commercials continue to objectify women, despite holding careers as lawyers, doctors, and engineers.
