Elected Presidency Race Criteria = Tokenism? These People Have A Different View…

Scrolling through various Facebook comments, it is common to see people of various races (especially the Chinese majority), calling out the racial criteria in the Elected Presidency a form of tokenism.

However, we spotted a few comments from minorities on various Facebook posts on mainstream media pages and even Bertha Henson’s wall which seemed to take a different perspective towards this new rule.
