Although Hillary Clinton’s decision to run in the 2016 presidential elections was unsurprising for many people, I can honestly say that I was stunned by her campaign video. The former Secretary of State effectively showed that she is focused on the development of 21st century values by including a variety of demographics that in the past have been excluded and unacknowledged, and I could not be more impressed.
I approve of Clinton’s effort to implement forward-thinking. By showing that she is aware of the fact that minority groups are as important as those that many consider to be mainstream groups, she is also promoting the belief that people of all walks of life deserve to be respected and represented equally.
Furthermore, since equality remains a frequently discussed issue both for those fighting for equal rights and for those promoting its importance, it is high time that we see more campaigns such as Clinton’s that fully emphasize that all people are important and deserve representation.
