Well, today marks a giant step backwards for the U.S. and for crazy things like civil rights, cultural exchange, and community building. Shameful and embarrassing to see the amount of people willing to elect an openly bigoted and intolerant career "businessman" and reality tv character to lead the nation. To my international friends, know that I am ashamed of this outcome. It's not truly representative of the American people, but it does show just how far we we have left to go, that a message of hatred could be so successful.
