Social Awareness 2
1)Media/Newa Immersion: Newspaper articles: President Obama has appointed a record number of gays to his administration, data shows
Well this article talks about How president Obama hasn't been moving fast to end the mititery's "Don't ask.Don't tell" policy. But alot of people have notice that he has appointed aloyt of openly gays officals since his election. A spokesmen from the White House says that Obama has placed about 150 gay men and women in alot of posts in his administration..For weeks he has been criticized by the gay community for not doing alot more to help abolish the rule prohibiting gays from serving openly in the army forces.Well the gay people of NYC seem encouraged at the progress president obama had made in only his two years in office.In the article a White House spokesman Shin Inouye said Obama is proud of his appointment of officials from the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender) community. "This number will only continue to grow."
This article impressed me alot. I like how Obama improved the gay community, and gave the Gay people of NYC more courage and faith. I will hope that this process will contuine and that gays will be ablle to particapate in the war like they ask to have more openly gays particate in the war. I would like to help make some of these suggestions come true and that we can have gay americans fell like everyone else. Wouldnt you??
