The problem that I was trying to address is this concept that a black should represent black people, a woman should represent women, etc

I think not that black can only represent blacks nor that woman can only represent women nor that old white men only represents old white men.

The problem is that a group of old white men likely will not have the input of women nor black nor hispanics that a more diverse group of representatives would have... for me this is more crucial in the court system where people remain in office for 20 or 30 years or more .... We need diverse judges and diverse representatives...
