Tonight I watched a brown-skinned man accept the Democratic nomination for the President of the United States.
Yeah, I know, who didn't?
More intriguing was another first that went largely unnoticed--that this was possibly the first presidential candidate ever to wear a magenta tie. Which perfectly underscores the notion that we are neither a blue nor a red America.
But speaking as a homo-American, I really appreciate all the pink.
I'm just sayin'.
Favorite line of the night: "We love this country too much to let the next four years look like the last eight...eight is enough."
