statue-of-liberty-500700If someone had asked me ten years ago what would be the determinant factor in the presidential election. I would have said the candidate have to possess a strong character, he has to combine integrity and belong to one of the big political parties. The color of the skin would have also mattered but with Obama winning the office, this last hurdle seemed to have been set aside in 2008. I was so proud of America:- the country where everything is possible and even a black individual can become President!

Today all the good hope which came with Obama is lost. The illusion of a great America has actually turned upside down. Many have actually institutionalized hate just like it was prior to the civil rights era. Unfortunately most of the hate is geared towards Mexicans and Muslims. As such the hate of those two groups or lack thereof, will actually determine the fate of the American politics which I call the M & M effect (Muslim & Mexican). The M & M effect is plaguing the internet, the radio and news channels. Depending where someone stand, this year the election will be determined by Mexicans and Muslims, more precisely by the M & M effect.

The question which everybody is asking in the M & M communities right now is how many of the “Americans” hate them? The truth is that from most polls people are not really in favor of immigration. They also do not really like Muslims. Yet they are undecided whether they agree with deporting or hurting Mexicans and Muslims.
A dilemma which will become apparent when the November 2016 election results come out. If we see Trump winning the answer is clear, America is back to a racist country. If not then the country still shows some hope.
