The Bluest Eye (Vintage International)

Pecola Breedlove, a young black girl, prays every day for beauty. Mocked by other children for the dark skin, curly hair, and brown eyes that set her apart, she yearns for normalcy, for the blond hair and blue eyes that she believes will allow her to finally fit in. Yet as her dream grows more fervent, her life slowly starts to disintegrate in the face of adversity and strife. A powerful examination of our obsession with beauty and conformity, Toni Morrison’s virtuosic first novel asks powerful questions about race, class, and gender with the subtlety and grace that have always characterized her writing.

“You can’t go wrong by reading or re-reading the collected works of Toni Morrison. BelovedSong of Solomon, The Bluest EyeSula, everything else — they’re transcendent, all of them. You’ll be glad you read them.”–Barack Obama

The Helmut Norpoth model has correctly selected 24 of the last 26 presidential elections. Including the 2016 election. (Supposedly) 
Findings were released not too long ago. According to the model Trump has a 91% percent chance of reelection. http://primarymodel.com/  
What are your thoughts about this model or models in general  👇🗳as it relates to voting/ elections 👇Do you find them useful at all or no.
It does seem like Hillary was presented as if she were her husband Bill and that Biden was presented similarly as if he were Obama. They both shared  a significant link to the crime bill that Obama didn’t seem to have. Prior to this year, taking the strength of the economy into account, I would have betted on a Trump win confidently & hands down but with all of the antics that were pulled this year- with the race riots and Covid etc  it’s a harder call to make. 🤔

I will say though that I do think that a lot of the events that have taken place this year were orchestrated in some fashion prior to, with the intent of directly attacking Trumps “holy grail” (so to speak) the economy... the one thing that he had over all of the other candidates that would have essentially made him easily undefeatable. I don’t think that many of this years events were simply coincidental, not in an election 🗳 year. What are your 💭 thoughts about who will win ? Feel free to reply below 👇All comments are welcome 👇
