After Oprah’s inspirational speech at the Golden Globes, I made a video offering up 10 reasons why I think she would be a good presidential candidate. There’s a lot I didn’t cover because I was trying to record and edit in a short amount of time.
For example, I believe Oprah (or a a majority of female candidates) would promote equality across the board (social, financial, etc.), because unless you have been oppressed in some way, how can you truly understand what equality would even look like? If you’re a white man, the only way you could even begin to understand oppression is by hearing what it’s like from someone else. You’ll never experience it. Iceland just made it illegal to pay men more than women. I think that’s tremendous (they also have a female president)!
Also, I believe that for our country to reach it’s true potential as the greatest country the world has ever seen, it must allow for women to reach their true potential, which can only be done if we are truly given equal status (without having to battle sexual harassment, abuse, assault, etc).
Men have skills that women don’t and women have skills that men don’t, so LOGIC would tell you that if we are working with two skill sets, greater things could be accomplished. It’s so exhausting constantly trying to get the oppressors to understand this. But I’m hopeful that things are changing now that we’ve hit rock-bottom. I think this country is on the fast track to becoming a “shit hole” country.
In the meantime, you can watch my video HERE!
Thanks for reading/watching and have a great day!
