Do you feel that?

This election has caused even more discord between blacks and whites?

I think in some ways it has brought us closer, but in others divided us even more.

  • That's very true, micrespo. I'm not saying we don't have SOME racism problems in my area, but the local high school (that I attended) was very diverse, and it wasn't an issue.

    Now, across town at a different high school, where only 10% of the students were NOT white, there were LOTS of problems with racism.

    Just depends on where you live....

  • I believe the election has enhanced the opportunity for people to look at people's characters more than skin color even more now. If we watch our children we will notice race has no place in their decisions regarding who they socialize with. They have been raised in a society that promotes the idea of color blind.
