race, sex, looks, religion...have no part in guiding how anyone should vote, they are inconsequential mainly because anybody seeking election will have assumes a position designed to attract the most votes.
In other words, with power folk, what you see is NOT what you get, so basing your decision on what someone looked like, or told you they believed would be a foolish and unreliable way to elect anybody.
Race and sex are also false positives, any power person will play the race or sex card to suit themselves, so the feminist may not be what she seems and the macho man may just as easily be homosexual and inadequate.
Electing someone because they were of a certain race, or rejecting someone for the same reason is also foolish.
People who stand for election are liars, the honest ones are knocked out early on by the professional liars, and if any honest politician does start attracting voters, the professionals will see that the media report some scandal, real or contrived, to stop the people voting for them.
People vote for the illusion that this person will change things into how they would like them to be.
It's a lie, all politicians are controlled by their backers, the 1% bankers, so you get whatever they want you to have, no matter what the politico promises.
