Around the beginning of April, people began to realize that the rest of 2020 would be much different than what had been expected at the beginning of the year. The coronavirus had spread throughout the world and began to affect the United States. Many issues were being discussed by average citizens, news outlets, and government officials, including the presidential election. This year was the first time I was able to vote for the president, and it was something I had been looking forward to as I was five months too young to do so in the 2016 election. The past four years under the Trump administration has been interesting to say the least. The president himself has made many racist and classist remarks, and as a person of color, it is very frightening to know that this is who the American people elected to lead us; therefore, I am quite grateful that a new president was elected for this upcoming term. Although I am grateful that a different administration will transition into the White House in the upcoming months, I still feel that the results of this election were entirely too close for comfort. I believe that the attitude and beliefs of President Trump, both towards minorities and people of lower classes, has been widely publicized, yet over 70 million citizens still voted for him again. This lack of empathy towards marginalized populations showcases that racism and prejudice is still very much alive—even after the killings of so many people of color just this year—because even if someone states they were voting for the economy, and not necessarily for Trump, it means that they value money over the literal livelihood and negative perceptions of people, who likely need more resources than they do. A vote for Trump this election was a vote against so many that deserve better, and my hope is that the Biden administration realizes this and acts accordingly.
