Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Race is not over... but

The first black president was elected without the support of most whites, 55% of whom opted for McCain. The first black president was elected without the support of many protestants - 54% of them cast their ballot for the Republicans. The majority of those who live in rural areas - many of them being white and protestant - came out for McCain. These statistics suggest that race is still a dividing line in US politics, and will not be magicked away with one election of one African-American.

What is refreshing, however, is that the younger, more urbanised, open minded and ethnically diverse generation is beginning to reverse the dominance of "Old America". This enthusiastic "young America" voted overwhelmingly for change, with 66%of 18-29 year-olds choosing to vote Democratic. It was their votes that counted.

No more excuses
