say all you want about the govt, but there has not been a democratic country that has voted a minority in but the USA. what do you think will be the next?
I think Canada or the U.K. I dislike a lot of things about the U.K. but they do seem to have a system which could have the potential of having a minority minister. There just aren't that many minorities in politics there though because they haven't rigged voting and power blocs along racial lines like in the U.S.
There have been several examples over the years. Peru voted in Fujumori a Japanese minority, Argentina voted in Menem a Arab minority, and Jamaica voted in Seaga, another Arab minority.
Those are just recent examples but there are many more.
Oh wow I didnt know about those. are those guys all head of state/ highest position in executive branch?
Also, dont talk about dictator ships being held by a minority. tons of arab countires have minorities as head of state, simply becaue they have control of military
lots of countries....

How about Nelson Mandela?
What does it matter anyway? The president is just a puppet who serves the oligarchs and ruling elite. Obama is under a lot of stress and probably does not enjoy being President. Nothing to be proud of.

Britain had a Jewish Disraeli.
Russia had all German Czars and Czarinas after Peter the Great. Not voted in, granted but still, Germans ruling over Slavs. They had to change their last names and convert to Orthodoxy though (after Catherine the Great --who did not change her name).
They had also invited Vikings from foreign lands to rule over them way back.
The USSR had Stalin--a dark haired Georgian-- voted in by Politburo.
Now, no more, as pure ethnic Russians are elected. I guess they've had enough of "foreigners".
A brain is a terrible thing to wash!
