since i dont have permission to create a poll, i would like to hear your input on this.

This is a extra credit class poll.

Do you think there will ever be a minority for a president. Minority as in.... everything besides the white male.

I need to survey about 50 different people so dont hold back


2 people can keep a secret as long as one is dead

absolutely, i believe every day we venture further from a white male dominated society. we may not see a minority become president in our life time, but eventually it will happen. in fact, i wouldn't be surprised if somehow they put a minority in as president in order to show that the country is not racist or sexist. sorta like how minoritys can get advantages in being hired because the company doesn't want to offend another race. the country has a large population of women, so if they all backed one woman for president i believe it would be easy enough for her to get elected

I think that there will be either a black male president or a white female president within 40 years, I am almost sure of it. Like Jon Stewart said (in one of his few serious moments) that more women governors means more chance of a woman president. And black males got suffrage before females, so I think a black male might become president before a women. But I am pretty sure one day we will have a minority president.

I think that it's possiable for someone from the minority to become a president, i'd say that probably soon you're gonna have a black president or something. I think a black president is the most close hint. But as BS said we may not see a minority become a president in our life time.

of course we will. as more and more of older generations phase out, racism also begins to phase out. I say this because many ol' folks are still stuck in the past and would never vote for a minority. This means more equal minded people will be voting in the future. However, a better question would be "Do you think a middle class or even low class citizen will ever be elected to any powerful political office?" My answer is no. Which is the primary reason why our government is functioning so shitt-illy.

ohfuk, it was possible for poorer people to become presidents in the past, because there was not as much campaigning involved. however, nowadays, you must advertise on tv, radio, telephone, etc. so its not really feasible for a low income individual to become president unless he is backed by somesort of party with money. BP, i highly doubt the next president will be black, i imagine it will be a slower process, first we will see a black person in the top 3 in votes, then as the runner up, and eventually win it. seeing as how no black person has really came close to winning recently it is not likely one would suddenly win.

typical 13 year old girl...btw you failed to mention you were 13 when you said gang

anyway getting off topic, there may be a black president but i mean why do you think no black guys run just look at(and forgive spelling) Collin Powell he'd be a decent president but how many months do you think he'd make it before some idiot KKK guy assassinated him so for your poll i'd say its definitley possible, but i dont know how long it'd last

the more she pisses me off, the more i wanna rape her......

BP, the next president will not be black.

BS, a black guy was in consideation for being a presidential canidate in one of the last few elections, ill try to find his name

cybernerd, if that was true, dont you think some black guy in politics right now would be killed? the KKK is still something like 50000 strong but the anti-KKK is a lot more powerful. but imagine what would happen if a black president was hit. it would be chaos. a race war might errupt. charles mansons proficy would come true...crazyness.

damaris, the average ages in ganges is low...something like 15 or 16. the vast majority off all gang members are between ages 10-24. of corse most dont ever do shit. some just get high. its one of those pathetic middle school things.

well Ohfuk you made a good point but still, i dont think this country is ready for a black president, and as far as anti kkk forces, well we have anti terrorism forces too but we still get shit like that DC sniper, and you have to admit the existing black officials now dont have as much power as the president and im sure white supremicy people arent exactly happy about any black people in politics, and it wouldnt be chaos look at history we put the japanese in internment camps, enslaved blacks, and now we look at every middle eastern person a little differently if there was a race war coming i think it would already have began

ok.. listen up because i'm only going to say this once:

there can NEVER be a minority as president. there can also never be a woman as president. why you ask? simple: minorities are pissed at the white man.. women are pissed at men in general... we can't have either of them in a position of power... because they will obscenely abuse the power of the presidency. it will be the worst possible thing for this country. so please... everyone.. never vote minority or for a woman.. it can only end in total and utter chaos.

oh and btw:
a damaris quote
Quote:
but minorities dont bullshit whites but what they will do is give more attetion to other thigns than for the rich ppl
umm.. do you know what income taxes are? do you realize the with the way it is set up now.. rich people pay more taxes than poor people? do you know how much bullshit that is? just because a person is smart enough to do well in business and make a substantial amount of money is NO reason for them to have to pay out more. it's totally fucked up. the poor pay so much less than the rich it's ridiculous. it really is. it makes me sick to think that my father pays out more each year in taxes than what most people make in one year. fuck that!

hmm, someone wants to hear my opinion, might as well take the opportunity. I agree that a minority president will most likely be white on the inside, and colored on the outside. Thats just the way it is. However said that thing about Abraham Lincoln proved my point. People who don't care about money make good political leaders. However, its impossible to run a campaign with middle-class wages in this day and age. Abraham Lincoln is regarded as the best President ever, and he was poor as a child. Just goes to prove my point. Damaris, as fleshy said, die.

fleshy, although most people know what your talking about with you rcomment of income taxes, some (damaris) might not. its not just that rich pay more taxes, they also pay a much higher percentage of their money to the government.

Married Filing Jointly
0 to 12,000----------10%
12,001 to 46,700-----15%
46,701 to 112,850----27%
112,851 to 171,950---30%

Head of Household
0 to 10,000----------10%
10,001 to 37,450-----15%
37,451 to 96,700-----27%
96,701 to 156,600----30%

Single
0 to 6,000-----------10%
6,001 to 27,950------15%
27,951 to 67,700-----27%
67,701 to 141,250----30%

Married Filing Separately
0 to 6,000-----------10%
6,001 to 23,350------15%
23,351 to 56,425-----27%
56,426 to 85,975-----30%

Higher incomes get 35% and 38.6%

The weight of the country is in the hands of the afluent.

But anyways fleshy, you have a very interesting opinion. Dont you think that more women/minorities in other government positions shows how they are continuingly gaining more power? although such a senario as a minority president "might" be a bad thing, people will not realize this because, well, people are stupid and a woman might get votes simply because other women voted for her and people might vote for her just cover up their own insecurities and try to not appear to discriminate. is anyone understanding me?
