    No. According to my logic, Obama cannot fully understand or sympathize with the problems or needs of whites, women and other groups that are specifically related to their whiteness, sex, etc. That's just basic logic that stems from acknowledging that you can't fully understand what you have not experienced.

    So what should a "representative government" look like now?

    Is our government truly representative?
    It would look like a third world country, which the United States will be, at this rate.

    Our government is already truly Representative. The people go out an vote. I realize in the minds of open racist and closet liberal racists(pretending to be a centrist) that a man should be given special privileges,office and status based on the color of their skin, but in our society people should be judged by the content of their character not by the color of their skin.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    That same thought crossed my mind as well.

    That is entirely up to the voters.

    That's true, but of course which politician can fully understand most people then. Romney can't fully understand Catholics. Michele Bachmann can't fully understand people who don't have bizarre voices in their head.

    It shouldn't "look like" anything in particular, since it's based on votes and not on racial make-up. My representative doesn't need to look like me, in order to represent my interests.

    Before we get our panties in a wad, keep in mind that 49.6% of births were white. So white births were still a plurality over all other races, it's just that when you add ALL of the other races, you get slightly more than whites.

    I'm not even sure how they count mixed race in this study. So a good portion of the "non-white" births may be half white. There are already very few people who can claim all white heritage anymore. Somewhere back in your family tree, someone wasn't white. Even Prince Charles is partially descended from the Romanovs, who had some Mongol blood.

    Whites will still be bigger than any single racial group for a long time to come.

    So since most agree that skin color and/or gender have no bearing on ability to represent, the only real reason things are so lopsided would have to be racism and sexism.

    Yes?
