SEEING BEYOND THE EPIDERMIS
There is a lot of talk in the media nowadays that America’s image in the world has been tarnished by the way its foreign policy was handled. Now that a black man who is son of a Kenyan father and Kansan mother is vying for the Presidency, many want to know whether Americans have the moral fiber to see beyond the epidermis. There has been a lot of hubbub about Barack Obama’s ability to handle the highest office in the land. What these folks don’t understand is that graduating from Harvard, the most prestigious university in the world, is not peanuts. Furthermore women political aspirants have not been fortunate either. Geraldine Ferraro, Hilary Clinton, and McCain’s best pick, Sarah Palin, have seen the unbalanced taste of American politics. The only time humans will see each other as equals is when color and gender become things of the past.
