Equal Access To Power

Why after two hundred and thirty-two years of a democracy do we still look at various members of our society with suspicion because of their color, gender, ethnic background or religious affiliation as they seek political office? One of the pillars of a democracy is all members of the society having equal access to power but in our democracy it is a pillar that is badly in need of repair. What better way to demonstrate that the pillar of equal access to power has been shored up than to overwhelmingly elect our first African - American president or our first woman president in November - not because of color or gender but because one of them is best qualified to be President of The United States.
