At the beginning of the year, I read an article from the Telegraph (a right-wing UK newspaper) and the headline was Is America ready to elect a black president.
Oh, that thud you heard was my jaw dropping to the floor.
I know that the UK has a much longer history than the US, but for all my searching, I can’t help notice that every Prime Minister has been white. 99% of them have been men.
So, does anyone in the UK have a smidgen of a right to wonder if the US is “ready” for a black president?
I didn’t think so either which why I posted:
Is England ready for a Black Prime Minister?

I can’t wait to hear an answer on this.
