The election of THAT MAN to be President is in direct correlation to the Obama Presidency, and also the culture that grew during those years.
I have long said that those who wanted “to make America great again” longed for the delusional world of Mad Men: where they could pretend that they were big fish in a big pond, when the actuality is, they were fish in a pond where 90% of everyone else was shoved into sardine cans. They weren’t competing against everyone else. And, they could pretend that they were so qualified, when the truth is, so many who were qualified were not let into the field.
Two movies coming out this month show this. The first shows the story of women who were hidden to this country. Whose brains and talents were used by this country to win the slave race and put a man on the moon. The movie and the book it’s based upon is called Hidden Figures. I consider myself a very educated woman, and the face that I knew about Bletchley Park years before I knew about these brilliant women upsets me. I just started reading the book, and I think you should get a copy for yourself.
When we learned about the space race in school, all the faces were White, and 9 out of 10 were male. Yet that is not the accurate picture of all who helped win the Space Race.
Check out the movie Hidden Figures when it comes to a theater near you.
