Are we there yet?

Good evening, Netizens...


David Horsey's cartoon asks a question of a "wise latina woman" that resonates with perhaps most of the women who read it: Have men done such a bad job of administering our legal system in this country? Of course this question is extensible, as we have to ask ourselves whether men have done a fair job of running our government compared to women?


The answers, I fear, depends upon how soon we see our government being administered equitably by women because, at the present time, women are just now breaking the glass ceiling.Thus we have a long ways to go.


My answer to the question in this cartoon depends upon whether the person(s) responding to it are black, female, transgendered or other ethnic backgrounds. Do we have a representative government? From the way I view it, not if you happen to be female or non-white.
