Lately it is appearing that the more a nation moves forward, the further behind it gets. Prejudices and racism is as much in the spot light today as it was fifty years ago. From the celebrities to the politicians, there seems to be no end in sight for the inferior treatment of people from different cultures. Now, the gay and lesbian community are a part of the ongoing prejudice that is consuming a nation of people. The country is forever changing, and the many different faces help make it the big melting pot that it is known to be.

It’s just that you would expect more form the people that a society help make famous, or voted into office. There were no barrier lines when these processes were taking place, and there should be none today. The nation can not truly come together as one if there are people pulling against, and speaking against, their fellow man. Politicians, especially, have some power that can possibly turn things around, but if they are stuck in former decades where certain behavior was the norm, the country will always be behind.
