The lack of diversity among American presidents is appalling.
There has never been a President of Italian descent, or a President who publicly identified as gay or transgender. We have never had a Jewish President, a female President, a Native American President or an Asian-American President. Every single President has been Christian and just one has been Catholic.
My friend Cherylanne‘s seven year old was stunned to realize that every single American President has been male.

How can we responsibly continue to allow such a narrow segment of the American population to represent all of us?
Instead we have to believe that different perspectives are good for the nation. We have to trust that diversity and inclusion will take us in a positive direction. And obviously, we have to vote.
