The Reality Revolution: People Are Tired of Being Marginalized

"We need to try and focus less on ethnicity in this country and concentrate on trying to improve the lot of the marginalized whoever they are." - Ratu Joni Madraiwiwi

Good Day World!

African-Americans, Asians, Hispanics, Muslims, the LGBT community, and a collection of other minorities are tired of being marginalized in America.

They're fed up.

A recent poll highlighted this assertion by showing the popular candidates aren't the ones leading in the primary pack.
Republican Gov. John Kasich and Democratic candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders are the people's choice (national polls), but chances are neither will become president.

No one should be surprised that organizations like Black Lives Matter are stepping up and getting the message out (seeking equality) for African-Americans.

Asian have Ascend, a group that promotes their interests in America. It's full of useful information and contacts for Pan-Americans.

One of the fastest growing minorities in America, Hispanics have 21 various groups that support them in numerous ways.

One of the most oppressed minorities in the country today are Muslims. They have the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to support them.

Still fighting for equality, the LGBT community has support organizations like Human Rights Campaign working to get their message out.

Reactions like this are becoming more commonplace.

Despite these organizations, progress has been slower than a snail climbing up a greased pole.

Listening to the hateful rhetoric being spewed from presidential wannabees only proves my contention: a lot of Americans are tired of being marginalized.

Is this how revolutions start? You bet it is...

Time for me to walk on down the road...
