The Great Melting Pot Is Leaking

In the end antiblack, antifemale, and all forms of discrimination are equivalent to the same thing - antihumanism.
-Shirley Chisholm

The bigots have come out of the woodwork this election year.

McCain- to old.

Romney- wrong religion.

Obama-to black or not black enough.

Clinton- wrong sex or to much like a man.

Then there are the groups that should know better. The New York Chapter of NOW ( National Organization for Women) has released this statement after Ted Kennedy and Caroline Kennedy came out for Obama. The president of NOW released this statement yesterday pullling back from what the New York chapter had said.

What the heck is going on? The hatred, anger, and lack of tolerance surrounding this election is off putting and somewhat scary. Is this a symptom of the hatred, anger, and lack of tolerance that we as a country project out to the rest of the world?
