Our biases are confirmed

Pennsylvania is known as the Keystone State for a reason. The word keystone or capstone puts the final touch at the apex of a masonry arch and locks everything together. The bottom border of the state is known as the Mason-Dixon line and it became the boundary between the free northern states and the slave states of the south during the Civil War. It became the symbolic line that divides the North and South both politically and socially and created what is now known as Dixie. Dixieland is also called the “Confederate States of America.”

This presidential election is based the three groups of people; Blacks, Whites and Latino or Hispanic. There are two groups within each group. In the Latino/Hispanic group there are the Mexican Latino and the Caribbean Latino. In the Black group there are the southern Blacks and everyone else. In the White group there are urban and rural (city-country).

The only thing this election did was just confirm what everybody already knew. Blue states just got bluer and red states just got redder.
