Oh, okay. "Will any European countries ever have a black prime minister?"
It's not the stupidest thing anybody's ever asked on DL.

Will the continent of Europe ever have a black Prime Minister. What's so hard to comprehend?
|by Michelle O'||reply 4||07/01/2013|
I understand what you're asking, OP. And yes, probably so, although which country and when don't seem clear at the moment. I'm seeing this happen near a body of water, possibly on or around the time of an election.

OK, I'll bite, OP. There is no Prime Minister of Europe. Europe is a continent, like Africa or Asia or North America. Just as there is no head of state for the US, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean nations, and Central America, there is no one person leading all the countries of Europe. The European Union has a leadership structure including presidencies of the Council of the EU and European Commission, along with rotating leadership among the 28 member states. Then of course there are 28 individual governments.
Could one of those one day be black? Depends on your definition of 'black'. But then, it took this much to explain the "Prime Minister of Europe" to you, so that's another discussion.

There are a lot of nitpicky fortysomethings on this thread. It's very obvious that OP meant a prime minister somewhere within the continent of Europe.

Peru had a Japanese prime minister so anything's possible.

OP is a rightwing shitstain.
|by Michelle O'||reply 19||07/01/2013|
OP never said there was a prime minister of Europe. He asked if the continent of Europe will ever have a prime minister who is black.
As one might have asked pre-Baldwin if the United States will ever have an openly gay senator? To name one example of how asking if a set of entities will ever have a phenomenon that is does not have a relation to the whole that is denominated by its definitional relation to a singular entity.
But you knew that.

Moreover, geography has nothing to do with how many prime ministers there are in Europe and identifying their geopolitical authority. Not even political geography deals with such an issue.
I love when people on DL jump on posters to criticize them for the way they frame questions or sue language and in doing so make countervailing linguistic errors.

Well if you want to get technical, the US hasn't really had a black president yet. Obama is black because he appears black, but he is equal portions black and white.

We still use the "one drop rule" y'all.

OP it is extremely likely that someone of mixed heritage will become a Prime minister in a European country, but you have to realize that the United States, through importing slaves well into the 19th century, has a relatively larger black population.
And for most countries, someone of mixed race will need to be a party leader to become prime minister.
Here's a question for you -- when will the U.S. have a woman president? Europe has had many, going back several decades. And considering that the US is half women, don't you think that's weirder.
Or how about a gay prime minister. We have one of those too -- first in the world, actually.
When you have more than one black president, as we have had several women, then we'll see if it's a pattern, or, more likely, an incredible candidate who was in the right place at the right time.

R13 here again.
Well, birdies, I saw there were plenty more posts since I last looked and clicked to see what further insights on the proposition had been advanced.
I am very happy to report that you are a bunch of unfocused sex-mad sillies, and I would like to buy you all a drink and put another dollar in the tip jar.
Play "Tangerine" please.

The Prime Minister of Europe here, to answer your questions about governing my varied and fascinating country!

During his war service, my husband noted Europe is just one big godless Hymietown. A brown has as much chance of becoming prime minister as gaining entry to Heaven.
I'm sure even you people agree.

Dear god would these idiots shut up about this. Racial identity is obviously a complicated concept. The mean percentage of white admixture for black Americans is already between 14-17%. 20% of black Americans have over 25% white ancestry. Obama for being a black American with significant white ancestry. The fact that is father was actually an African means overall his percentage of European admixture isn't even THAT much different from black Americans who have two "black" parents with signficant European admixture.
Obama has chosen to identify himself as a black American. If you saw him on the street you would just consider him a black American. He is therefore black in our society.
Also there are other minorities. What if a European country had a east Asian, south Asian or middle-eastern prime minister?
It is bound to to happen at one point.

Disraeli was Jewish by birth, but wasn't raised as such.
Ed Miliband, the current Leader of the Opposition is Jewish.
Also, the current chair of the Parti Socialist is of Caribbean heritage.

Europe might actually have a lesbian president at the moment.
(Lithuania just took over the presidency of the EU Council. The Lithuanian president, Dalia Grybauskaite, is oft rumoured to be a lesbian.)
