I want someone who experienced pain to be president.

I want a president who is Hispanic or Black or mixed.

I want someone who knows the feeling of discrimination.

A president that fights and never gives up.

A person who came from the hood, the island, the street.

I want a president who has been abused.

Someone that’s been on welfare, who survived cancer.

I want a president who has seen murder first hand.
