So… he won! Well done America.
It’s quite impressive; black people in America make up 13% of the population (I got this from Google so it might not be right!) and 13% of 44 presidents is 5.7, so they’re only a couple behind now. A couple of women and Latinos elected and then they will be the most equal nation ever.
Think how many Prime Ministers we’ve had and we’ve only ever had white middle class men*. We are loads behind.
Let’s hope he does a good job. The biggest reservation I have is that his entourage have billed him as a kind of transcendental politician. He’s probably just an ordinary guy.
I’ve read his book, he’s got a lot of good stuff to say. I hope he (a) wants to and (b) is allowed to do some of the stuff he talks about in it. Good luck, Barack.
* Doesn’t count and you know it.
