My Old Kentucky Home

All you need to know about Hillary Clinton's big victory in Kentucky. We have a lot of work to do Americans. A lot of work.

I'll be the first to admit I haven't traveled much or experienced any communities but the one I've grown up in, but it's still shocking to see that there is still prejudice like this out there.

Those of us here in New York, especially the ones near the city, are all too apt to forget we live in an extremely diverse, liberal area, and while we see some things as common sense or natural, there is, like you say, still a lot of work to do.

Yup. Listen, I lived in fairly well to do Chester County, PA for a little while and heard things that would make your toes curl up.

A lot of people from the surrounding rural areas, and transplants from Western PA used to make racist remarks to me as if to say, "You know what I mean, right White brother?" and I would just look incredulously at them. It never occurred to them that I found their attitude repulsive and contrary to everything I believe in.

That's how it is until we do something to change it, unfortunately.
