Please don’t vote for an -ism

May 9, 2008

In this volatile presidential election race, I hope we will all vote for the most qualified candidate. We may each define “qualified” differently, but in 2008 in the United States of America, I truly hope that “qualified” has nothing to do with color, age or gender. If it does – if it still does – then this country has not advanced. Our collective mindset will really be no further ahead than it was decades ago…maybe even centuries ago.

I’m not going to suggest who anyone should vote for, but please don’t cast your vote for someone just because that person is black – or not. Is female – or not. Is young – or not.
