Hey guys! I don't diary much, in fact, hardly at all. But this cause is near and dear to my heart, so I wanted to bring it to you all's attention. This will be a short diary.
My dad created a petition to nominate a Black woman to the Supreme Court on the Whitehouse.gov page. Link here:
Follow below for more details.
I don't write many diaries, in fact, I believe I've only written one diary but I just had to share this story!
I saw a clip on MSNBC that absolutely fascinated me. The name of it is Priscilla's story and it tells the story on a young African 10 year old girl who was kidnapped and sold into slavery.

Excuse me if this diary seems rushed and brief, I have a chemistry exam later today. But I have been steaming ever since I began to read the statements that Donald Trump has been putting out about the President, and how he was able to get into such prestigious Universities.
He graduated Magna Cum Laude, you Dipshit!! How is graduating at the top of one's class equated to being a "terrible student"? I don't understand how this guy is even being THOUGHT of as candidate material for the presidential race. He disgusts me. Now, I'm not here to argue about affirmative action and whether it is helpful or not because I have some rather strong opinions and I'm sure yall do as well. But let me propose a question to everyone.
Why is it that when a black student gets into a good University everyone fucking assumes it's because of affirmative action? Could it just be that the student worked hard to maintain good grades and deserves a spot like any other person?
I was browsing the internet today and came upon this article: "Rush Limbaugh: Michelle Obama is no Sports Illustrated swimsuit model." In it, there was a quote by Rush saying :
I'm trying to say that our First Lady does not project the image of women that you might see on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue or of a woman Alex Rodriguez might date every six months or what have you."
