Steve Sailer suggests creating 'ceremonial Head of State' role

In a March 26, 2014 blog post, Steve Sailer of the white nationalist site VDARE suggests that "a giant empire like modern America would be better off splitting the roles of ceremonial Head of State and utilitarian Head of Government, rather than in getting them all entwined."

If it was not obvious enough, Sailer's gripe is that America voted a black man President of the United States, a role Sailer apparently was under the impression was reserved exclusively for white people.

To ensure that this never happens again, Sailer suggests creating a "ceremonial Head of State" role so non-whites can feel like they have representation without all the hassle of actually giving it to them, instead of electing "a part time college professor to fill both jobs in a mediocre fashion."

Sailer recommends Oprah Winfrey to the position:

Having spent about 15 seconds in The Presence in 1987, Oprah remains the greatest natural politician I've ever met.

Personally, I think a giant empire like modern America would be better off splitting the roles of ceremonial Head of State and utilitarian Head of Government, rather than in getting them all entwined. The Premier or whatever we'd call him would, in today's culture, typically be some senior black entertainment or athletic figure: James Earl Jones in the past, Morgan Freeman today, Oprah tomorrow, maybe David Robinson after her.

Instead, out of that urge, we elected a part time college professor to fill both jobs in a mediocre fashion.

It will be hard for Steve Sailer to accept this, but it's the truth: Americans didn't vote for Obama because he's black (though the fact that white nationalists are so vehemently opposed to him is certainly a perk).
