I woke up this morning and on my facebook mini-feed, it showed that someone had left a facebook group called “Hillary Clinton: Stop Running for President and Make Me a Sandwich.” In the description it read: “Dedicated to keeping Hillary Clinton out of the Oval Office and in the kitchen.” As of this post, it had 39,057 members. I was very discouraged to see this. It’s sad that sexism against Hillary Clinton is accepted. If there was a group against Barack Obama that said something similar about his race, there would be an uproar, and rightly so. Chris Matthews, the host of “Hardball” on MSNBC has said numerous sexist comments about Hillary Clinton and is still on the air. If he had said similar racist comments about Barack Obama, I’m sure there would have been a call to get him fired, and rightly so.
Stephanie Tubbs Jones is a US Representative from Ohio and a Clinton supporter. She is also an African American woman. On Tuesday night after the debates, she said on tv that Martin Luther King’s dream is not only Barack Obama’s. It also belongs to Hillary Clinton and all women. That angle tends to be dismissed by the media.
Below is a video made by a Hillary Clinton supporter emphasizing her historic candidacy and how she’s a great role model for women to dream big and reach for the stars. I found it at the website Hillary Speaks For Me.
