アメリカの多様性を信じて

 
ぶっちゃければ現実逃避をしているだけですが(トランプの記事は読む気もしない。。。)、
先ほど紹介したOmarさん以外にも多様な議員が当選しているという現実があるようです。



Diverse Candidates Win Seats in U.S. Government
By CHRISTINE HAUSERNOV. 9, 2016

Hillary Clinton made history as the first female presidential nominee on the ballot, but the 2016 election saw other, more successful attempts by candidates from several states entering uncharted territory and breaking barriers.

Here are some examples of notable campaigns that reflected the country’s growing ethnic, social and gender diversity.








アーロンソーキンがお子さんに宛てて書いたというメッセージがVanity Fairに載っていました。彼のメッセージでKamala Harrisの存在を知ったのですが、We’re not powerless and we’re not voiceless.ですし彼の言うようにWe get involved. We do what we can to fight injustice anywhere we see itしかないんでしょう。

Read the Letter Aaron Sorkin Wrote His Daughter After Donald Trump Was Elected President

Second, we get out of bed. The Trumpsters want to see people like us (Jewish, “coastal elites,” educated, socially progressive, Hollywood…) sobbing and wailing and talking about moving to Canada. I won’t give them that and neither will you. Here’s what we’ll do…

…we’ll fucking fight. (Roxy, there’s a time for this kind of language and it’s now.) We’re not powerless and we’re not voiceless. We don’t have majorities in the House or Senate but we do have representatives there. It’s also good to remember that most members of Trump’s own party feel exactly the same way about him that we do. We make sure that the people we sent to Washington—including Kamala Harris—take our strength with them and never take a day off.

We get involved. We do what we can to fight injustice anywhere we see it—whether it’s writing a check or rolling up our sleeves. Our family is fairly insulated from the effects of a Trump presidency so we fight for the families that aren’t. We fight for a woman to keep her right to choose. We fight for the First Amendment and we fight mostly for equality—not for a guarantee of equal outcomes but for equal opportunities. We stand up.

America didn’t stop being America last night and we didn’t stop being Americans and here’s the thing about Americans: Our darkest days have always—always—been followed by our finest hours.


トランプショックが大きいですが、多様なアメリカは健在であることは勇気付けられます。
