This chapter considers the evolving place of minorities in elective politics. It traces the roots of President Obama's victory in majority public opinion and determines the supporting attitudinal currents that can be determined over the years. The chapter tries to provide a clearer understanding of the arrival of a black President and reflects on whether the UK has witnessed the kind of parallel changes required for a British Obama.
