One other follower posted this message in the comments: ‘Just pick a great person we need to stop this focus on skin colour that’s why we are being used anyway , it’s like dangling carrots , they will use race to entice you but it’s useless if they are not committed to doing good work , having black leaders doesn’t mean you get work done look at Africa and what the leaders are doing , let’s choose great character not based upon race.’
