the date after

i’m still trying to sort through all this elections business. most things went the way i hoped. obama’s decisive win is a step in the right direction for sure, though i still hope that obama will take some better stands on the wars, israel and a few other issues.

here’s an interesting post from racialicious with a bunch of different thoughts on the elections. it certainly reflects my own cautious optimism, especially in regards to the part that race plays in our country.

i’m upset that california voted to pass prop 8 the gay marriage ban. despite the momentum of obama’s election, it seems that our country’s backwards view on gay issues. florida and arizona also passed their gay marriage bans. 😦

the fight is still not over…
