    It's interesting that there's such an uproar with James Bond being black; what if one day, we would have a black queen/king or a mixed race monarch. Would there be the same uproar?

    I know it's not the same situation with Idris Elba but I'd like to see how this goes.

    It would be great.

    I am white, and anyone who judges someone on skin colour, is simply sickening, and deserves to be transported immediately to Mars to live a life alone, reflecting on this.

    No you wont. Did you see how she made the decision to go to another planet just because her BF's there?

    Owh, wait, probably you're made for each other

    I wouldn't welcome the day...because I'm a Republican.

    However. If we were to get a democratically elected, black/mixed-race chief of state...I would hold a street party. It would be a joyous, and nation-unifying event. I hope I live to see the day.

    And for the record...Rush Limbaugh's comments on a 'black/mixed race James Bond' are stupid. Stupid, stupid stupid. It's 2014. It doesn't matter what intention the writer had of James Bond, because it's not fit for the current world.

    Would make no difference as the royal family do nothing but make silly speeches.

    So you assume that there can be no black republicans? Right...

    Doesn't the monarch have to be protestant by law?

    Um..no. Of course there are black republicans in the UK....The first sentence merely hints at my hatred for the institution of the monarchy. It should end with Liz. Thus, no more kings and queens.

    The second sentence flipped the script on the OP's question, to consider it in terms of democracy.

    When...not if...the UK gets a democratically elected head of state, it will be a happy day. When and not if, that person happens to be black or mixed race, it will be a very happy day, and one which I very much look forward to.

    They changed it to permit a Catholic on the throne. After 400-odd years...it's nice to see some of those old boundaries finally starting to be challenge.

    Oh I see, fair enough then, that's far more sensible XD

    My mistake.

    Marriage to a Catholic now would not bar someone from ascending to the throne, but they would have to still be a Protestant.
