In 2008, the voters let this country and the world know it was time for change on how Americans perceived themselves. There are those who stand in the way of growth simply because of some loyalty to a party, instead of the people inside America.
The fight to deny equal rights to all Americans is woven in the hearts of men who can't find a way to release themselves from the past.
Our division comes from old thoughts of whites' superiority over blacks and how blacks came to this country without any roots to follow or call a country home. So now this is our home. And for America to grow, this fact must be accepted.
We should quit voting along racial lines, but vote for those who can best move the country forward for all Americans, be they white, black, brown or green. Make America work.
