In the recent debacle where Clinton released videos of Obama‘s pastor Jeremy Wright making racist speeches, instead of just allowing the controversy to die down and move on, Obama tackled the issue head on (in Philadelphia) in what must be one of the most inspiring speeches I’ve heard, and totally off-the-cuff too!

Loved the way he chose not to distant himself from his pastor which he could have conveniently done, and brought up painful examples of racism past and still present in modern America.
Which kind of brings me back to the highway :
How many times have we discriminated other drivers based on the car they drive?
Whether it is a small, old broken car, or a shimmering brand new Lexus?
Whether by making loud and rude comments about it, or just keeping it silently in your heart?
Some food for thought inspired by Obama.
Will we see the dawn of a new era in the US just like we’ve seen in Malaysia and Taiwan over the past few weeks?
Have a great week ahead!
