A Solution To America’s Post-Election Problems

388627_299859600047775_1726308685_nI just had the best idea.  And I do not mean this sarcastically at all.  So many people in America are talking very negatively since the election.  I have been, too.  It seems like a stream, not a thread, of hatred is enveloping everyone.

No one in the grocery store is discussing what the Trump administration’s policy will be about Puerto Rico’s statehood.  Nor fracking in New York and elsewhere.  People are talking about hating one or more groups of people (LGBTQ, women, african-americans, whites, latinos, anyone from another country who doesn’t look like they came here from northern or western Europe two hundred years ago).   Other people are talking about hating the people who hate the above people.  Republicans are mad at Democrats. Democrats are mad at Republicans.  Lot of people are mad at the millennials.  People are mad at rural people, city people, suburban people, human people.

But it many ways, it seems voters are afraid of anyone who is different than they are.

What about DNA tests?  They are ALWAYS a surprise.  So here’s my idea.

Let’s use DNA tests where you spit in a tube and send it off in the mail, to bring our country together.  It’s hard to hate a group when you see that you have X percent DNA from that group.

DNA might be the solution to America’s current unrest.

    I’ve watched the USA from afar most of my life, and the way the Dream is unravelling is a nightmare. How about everyone taking a deep breath and starting to prepare for… Thanksgiving?

  3. So you’re saying instead of the RNC and the DNC we should all be part of the DNA. Hmm. I like it.

    You are right! Not only in America this election has become the object of discussion and pros and cons, here in italy there is a never ending discussion about. I think it isn’t a question of American DNA but of the bigger wide human world DNA. Everyone is envolved in analysing and making connections with his own country and possibly trying to learn something which can help and be applied at Home. But, it seems to be a hard job and experience isn’t taken into any consideration!! Bye, bye

    I like it. Being a mutt myself and proud of it, I’d love to be with some people who think they are the chosen race whatever that is when they find out they have a case of mixed race themselves.

    I was just thinking this, but for a different reason. If my son were to discover that he was part Native American, part Eskimo, part Latino, a descendant of an African slave, part of any minority, part of any discriminated-against group, etc., he’d qualify for a lot more college grants and scholarships.
