Alright ladies I'm venting here on this one. I was with a friend of mine and the topic of voting came up! Now to some people it's a very private matter on who you're voting for, and why, but we are pretty open with one another. So my friend asks me who I'm voting for. So I say I'm voting for Obama. Immediately my friend starts to go off about how in the hell can I want to vote for someone who is a Muslim when we are at war with them?

Obviously ignorance is bliss in their world because the last time I checked we were at war with terrorist, not Muslims. And FYI 70% of the world are Muslims. So now I'm sitting there stuck in disbelief to what my friend just said. I've always thought highly of this person, up until this conversation. So because a person comes from a Muslim family does that make him/her a terrorist? Is every Jewish family rich? Is every Irish a drunk? Do you see where I'm going with this? Come on!! Personally I think it would definitely change the perspective of many people if there's a black man running this country!!! I'm not saying there isn't  a chance that he may or may not do a better job than Bush or Clinton, but they are all men and they WILL make mistakes.

Why should I be made to feel ashamed of wanting to vote for Obama? I'm not prejudice but I damn sure do live in a country that is! I never thought I'd see the day a black man would come this close in running for the presidency and the day has come! So as a free woman in a free country I have the right as an AMERICAN to put in my vote which I damn sure will.

Sorry ladies I just needed this off my chest!
