The Two Americas

Travon Martin's killer is acquitted...a vigilante kills black kid and walks...we use drones to kill hundreds of children overseas, we start wars of choice, we spy on everyone everywhere, corporations are people, our elections are won by corporate funded candidates...and on and on....And then there are the two made up of mostly white, mostly older, mostly rural, mostly not highly educated, mostly not very sophisticated, mostly Republican, mostly religious and mostly conservative. The other America is our hope, young and multi-ethnic, city dwellers or want to be, not fooled by religion, liberal, and hopefully they will be educated unless the Republicans succeed in gutting funding for schools. Time is on their side.
