Pride ... or ... Prejudice?

Welcome to my blog!

I don't want to get deep into my personal politics, but I did vote for President Obama for various reasons.

I like to see the pageantry and appreciate the significance of the peaceful transition of power from one President to the next. As such, I had the TV on in work on Tuesday to try and catch what I could of the festivities. Several co-workers made comments that I thought fairly inappropriate and sad. There didn't seem to be much evidence of a healing of the races. While nothing said was overly racial, the comments spoke volumes.

I also found negative comments by some friends and family members. I was a little surprised (and somewhat saddened) considering the worldwide euphoria surrounding this election and transition.

I can only hope that people keep an open mind and give the new President a chance to make changes for the better.

What reactions did you find? Positive, negative, surprising, disappointing? Let us know by leaving a comment below!

  1. I say buy it! It would look great in Blue Ray. No do not replace your collection of DVDs yet. They would still look great on Blue Ray.
