Sexism, Racism and Politics

You’ll hear both Obama and Clinton supporters arguing that their favorite candidate has it worse than the other. I don’t know whether sexism or racism causes you more problems. As someone who’s trained in social research, I’m inclined to think that that would hard to measure (though I can think of some avenues that I might try).

That being said, if I were a presidential candidate and I had to choose whether people would shout things like “iron my shirt” at me or whether news anchors would joke about killing me, I’d choose the laundry.
