This is a psychological article on the overall comfort level America has on this new, and recent, change in American history.

Is it wrong to judge somebody on the color of their skin or the color of their personality?
Obviously, the answer to the question above should be that we should never judge somebody on the color of their skin, but by their movements and coordination to how they think and persue those tasks they choose in life. Some say that Obama is what the future needs. The necessity of our, now, growing economy. Other citizens say that because our president is African American, that certain bad eggs will try and assassinate him. This is realistic to think that. However, are people really that desperate to seek attention? I am a huge fan of Obama and I truly wish he lives a long, prosperous life full of exciting accomplishments as one of our greatest presidents. That is beside the point just to make you (the readers) know what my standpoint on this issue is as I write about it. These are my thoughts and no one is convincing, persuing, enforcing, or telling me to type as such. Anyways, our people so desperate to obtain the attention they want by doing something so horrendous and life-changing for all citizens, the only way out is to die in prison? I, for one, do not believe someone will do that to our president. It is possible though, and the Ku Klux Klan are still here in America whether you know it or not. One thousand are believed to still exist and this is quite shocking for what year it is. There used to be one-hundred thousands of them, but either they got sued, jail time, killed, or they even learned their lesson, which is highly unlikely.
Why is this country not changing? We have a different-colored president. Shouldn’t that reflect on the people?
No, people as an entire group are stubborn and won’t change because they are told to. It takes a while to change the minds of people. This country is becoming more positive though because way more citizens voted for Obama than McCain. However, many people didn’t vote for McCain because of Sarah Palin and the stereotypical media. Today, people look at the democratic or republican parties and decide by their belief system. Even though some people go by gender, and race, most of the people don’t. Obama being elected is proof of that.
Does the media have an affect on people this way?
This should be an elementary question; however, it isn’t. It depends on the person. If the person is highly intelligent or not; it doesn’t matter because of the way a person is built. It all depends if you move with the crowd or not. Is it easier to make your decision or go with everyone else’s? Are you a leader or a follower? Other questions can relate to it as well, but my point is that it all depends.
This is a topic about racism, and social injustice. You’ve heard this repeated so many times throughout grade school and I am not writing this to bore or to even ramble on about nothing. This is just to create a discussion within your own mind and writing this article is making me think more about life and how society, in general, is.

Is it wrong to join a horrendous cult just to be saved from future conflict with the same cult?
The above picture was taken many decades ago during the 20th century showing how powerful the public can be. To be a part of something just because you don’t want to face the harsh consequences was a huge thing back then and even so today. It is not wrong to save you and your family’s life, but it is wrong to join something that doesn’t belong to your beliefs. To joins something for the sake of not getting killed seems logical to me. Call the cops. Call security. Call the official officers of the law. They will take care of them today, but back then, there were so many cases that suggest that the cops were against the law and the law was against humanity. Today, it is wrong to do as such, as long as you become intelligentally aware of your moves.
The future looks bright. Let’s keep it that way.
This has been a thoughtful rant about racism.
