Hah! :) I have you know that most of my blood originates in a non
European way.

I think you are missing my point. It isn't that it makes sense that a
non European person leads the group. It is that the membership has that
option. I am under no illusion that in almost every case imaginable the
Europeans will be the leaders of their own group.

The point is, the limitation shouldn't be there. The membership should
make the determination on who they want moving the group forward. That
is all.

I find it very interesting that most of the objections that I have
heard are the "idea" that someone who is not european may lead the
group when my only suggestion is not that someone who is not european
be able to, but that democracy prevail and that only the membership
makes that determination.

Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake
