Over the past week or so, Atlanta elected a new mayor. After a pretty crowded field, it was narrowed down to 2 candidates:¬†city council member Keisha Lance Bottoms, an African American from the Democratic party, and city council member Mary Norwood, a white woman who is running as an independent. Although this race didn’t apply to us directly (we don’t live in Atlanta, therefore weren’t eligible to vote), we wondered to ourselves: Does Atlanta still need¬†a black mayor? After years of a black president many believed would be the savior to black people (hint,hint: not us), why do we still vote along racial lines simply because a person looks like us? Well, we decided to stop wondering to ourselves and recorded our thoughts on it. Check it out.
