    This week Barack Obama became the first black president of the United States.

    I am interested in the views of TSR members as to how they would feel about this country having a black, or Asian, or [insert minority group] here PM, assuming you agreed with his policies and saw him or her as capable of leading the government.

    we've had loads of these threads. And if "you agreed with his policies and saw him or her as capable of leading the government.", why should his/her race become an issue?

    Err... actually, Obama became the first black President-elect. Bush 41 is still the President. It's semantics, I know - but they're important, damnit!

    Disraeli was only Jewish by heritage, not religion.

    Enough with these threads.
    From most TSR users you will find people aying "If his/her policies are to your liking, why would race be an issue".

    A Jewish PM would be cool.

    As would any Human who maintains British values, as a matter of fact.

    Why isn't Catholic on the poll? As far as I know that's the only one who's not actually allowed to be PM.

    Jewish is a race not only a religion. He was Jew. Ergo we had a Jewish prime minister.
