My article on thewrit.net! #aftershock2016

Hey everyone! I'm so excited to be a part of thewrit.net - a crowd sourced journalism blog run by my friend Victoria Kuketz! It's a pretty cool concept because they call on a topic and the readers or writers (like me!) get to weigh in with some short thoughts. It's really interesting to see the difference perspectives of people from so many diverse fields, all in one place!

 The first topic we were asked to write about was the aftermath of the 2016 US Presidential Election. 

Here's a short excerpt from my article: 
Secondly, it’s clear that staunch republicans wanted “their” America back. They were afraid of too much progression (for instance, a black president). So instead they took 20 steps backward. However, despite the obvious regression society took in electing Trump, there is one upside – systemic racism is now blatantly irrefutable. Now the right cannot deny all of the oppression and hatred towards minorities that they’ve claimed “didn’t exist” in the past. We need to understand where the white working class is coming from, and why they felt this man appealed to them. Then, we need to figure out how to change their world into one where they realize he will not solve their problems and will not create progressive political change.
