Hey Larry thanks for your comment! I definitely could have made it clearer about the politics within NY state. My partner is from upstate NY so we visit a lot. In this piece I was attempting to make clear that red and blue is not a full understanding of what is happening within a state, and also that we as a country and people have original sins we still need to work hard on regarding racism, sexism and classism.
