Why is it so hard for a white man to become President?

Obama obviously only won because he was black. Besides that strange fluke of the last 43 presidents, America has never elected a white man. When will the discrimination end?

    Its the same here in the UK.

    With us the flukes keep on happening.

    Do you think it is an international conspiracy?

    Are you off your meds? We have always had white. What history are you looking at? And for your information race wasn't a factor in this election. Sure many African Americans did vote for Obama and yes there is some historical significance but Obama won because the American people as a whole believed he would be a better president and make better decisions than McCain. It is this kind of ignorance that makes it hard to move forward from the race issues.

    Actually there are 42 people who were or are president of the United States, not counting the ones before Washington, such as Samuel Huntington.

    properly, in international locations the place white adult males are the dominant ethnosocial group then no, it in all probability isn't very difficult for them to grow to be president. In international locations the place different communities are dominant, then it may be harder for them. In maximum western democracies we are striving for equality so as that race and gender shouldn't count; it is the guy's skill to control which trumps each little thing else.
