No country has attempted to set up its laws to make everyone equal as much as the USA which proclaims all men are created equal regardless of race, creed, or color. And now we have a black man as president. It makes me feel proud of how far we have come.

One Black President but no Female President, have you read about female leadership in other countries for decades now? Laws are only as effective as those being enforced or recognized. Why is there discrimination being utilized in corporate such as Apple (look it up in regard to minority Employment? Funny that if you talked to Women and minorities, they would tell you that it's a disgrace that this is the 21st Century here in the United States yet our country has resisted any major changes since our forefathers. Look that up as well. How many corporate have CEO who are Women or minorities? Look up the progress of our original Native American and tell us about their ability to succeed.

I wouldn't so much say that it's a matter of blatant discrimination as much as it's an issue of failure to sufficiently advance the cause. Tim Cook has admitted as much and has been making concerted efforts to improve corporate diversity at Apple. Few CEOs have greater civil rights integrity than he. He recognizes that there is much room for improvement.

In the final analogy, Obama will leave office as one of the most hated Presidents, not because of his job performance but because of his skin color.

BOOM – Univision Reluctantly Reports Donald Trump Leading With Latino Republicans….

In a Public Policy Polling survey, Trump leads with 34% of Hispanic voters, surpassing Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. What makes this poll even more delicious, is that it had to be reported on Univision:

I think that even you don't believe your humorous tales Rich. Obviously the jokes on you when you attempt to state that all a candidate has to do is disrespect your race by calling them rapists, criminal and murderers and you have their support.....excuse me while I consult a 5 year old in regard to that premise. What are odd that even children respond in an negative way when disrespected.

Wow. For decades now! Currently we have female candidates for president in both major parties. I call that progress. It is only a matter of time.

Oh I don't think so. He was re-elected and I think his current approval rating is at least as good as the last president who was not even invited to his parties next convention after he left office.

Once again, progress based on who's definition? You being a White Male never faced the adversities of minorities or Women waiting decades of falling below the level of life achievement goals. One thing to not push or drive one's self but when you're hindered based on the sole premise of gender or race, that you'll never fully comprehend the frustration. I had a few experiences of garnering electrical contracts which somehow surprise unknowing people once I showed up to do the work....why? yet you like to speak of progress in the 21st Century. Name a Female NFL coach, we witnessed a female referee at an NFL game, a first, Name a female President, yet several have run over the last 30 years, yet I can name dozens of Female president and Prime Ministers from other country....progress at a snail pace is only acceptable if you're someone whistle standing in your shoes.Locally, I remember several heated conversations between you and other posters in regard to Native Americans and their impact particularly to Seneca County, you came across rather bigoted if not racist....both attributes characterize individuals seeing women and minorities as someone that should be graceful for even getting what they have and should not complain whatsoever.

Native Americans are American citizens. I think their businesses should pay the same taxes as all businesses for a level playing field. I strongly object to that making me bigoted or worse.

Twice I voted for a black president. I am more than ready to vote for a female president. I don't know what more you expect me to do.
