Thanks for adding some clarity. There are several stats connected to ethnicity that are more about poverty, education, and health than skin colour, heritage, etc. I wonder if looking at those issues and focusing on similar need rather than differences, if we would make progress for everyone. All of the above issues are certainly divisive, as you say, and apparently the skin colour of our leadership does not change that, especially if that is the primary descriptor of said leadership.

Call me naive, but how different are the policies that black voters favour? Don't good ideas merit enactment regardless of race, etc.? I wonder if the way forward is to focus policies that help everyone flourish, like access to education and universal health care.

Don't we all. The real test for FIFA is whether the 2018 and 2022 World Cups are moved. I don't care which overpriviledged weenie runs the thing.

I'm not American and therefore cannot ultimately vote for the man or woman who raises the most money, but if I could I would vote for Bernie because of his ideas. Guess where I live.
