It is interesting that the democratic candidate for the presidency will be either a woman or a black man. I truly am inspired by this, but aren't we also a little ashamed that it has taken so long? It is entirely civilized that the civil rights movement of the 50's & 60's got us here. It is not so laudable that that was half a century ago. I know a lot else has happened in the meantime, and we have legislation to reflect that now, but isn't it shockingly slow progress we now witness.
