“Why I’m Politically and Morally Bias in the Presidential Election”
Arguably, I am politically bias and incorrect when it comes to voting in the presidential election in America. I must admit that my allegiance is not single or one. I’m politically and morally bias for five main reasons:
- I’m a citizen of two countries: Haiti (birthright citizenship) and the United States (naturalized citizenship). Human lives and human flourishing in both countries matter to me.
- In selecting a candidate in the presidential election, I pay close attention to that individual’s foreign policies, especially his or her regard toward the nations in the Global South or the developing nations like the “shithole” country of Haiti 🇭🇹.
- How you (as the future president of the United States) will politically treat the people in my native land is indicative on how your administration will treat me, and other immigrants like me and refugees in your own country.
- The moral, economic, judicial, and ethical decisions you will make as a president in the most powerful country in the world (the U.S.A.) will also have moral, economic, judicial, and ethical consequences on the lives of the people in the country of my birth and in the Global South.
- If your political actions and national policies do not promote the equality and rights, and the human dignity for the people who look like me in your country, you will have no respect for the individuals who look like me in my native land or the individuals and families in the darker (and poor) nations. The lives and the future of the people back home and in the Global South matter and are sacred as much as the lives and the future of the people in these United States are.
Happy Saturday and enjoy the weekend, friends!
