I’d vote for a black guy for president. I’d vote for a woman for president. I’d vote for a Hispanic for president. I really don’t care. Those things shouldn’t matter for determining the president.
My worry, however, is that I’m not like most people. And a lot of people wouldn’t vote for a black guy, or a hispanic guy, or a woman. And this seems to be what the Democratic party is putting forward.
So I’m proud and dismayed at the same time. I think it is great that these people can be taken seriously as candidates. I just worry that most people aren’t ready for that. And that’s really sad.
