Brazil's suspended president criticizes new cabinet's 'all white male' structure

By Rudaw 14/5/2016

(AP)--Brazil’s suspended president Dilma Rousseff has called her removal from office a coup. "So, there is a systematic blockade in that sense that, ok, it creates a propitious environment for a coup. How have they created a propitious environment for a coup? The environment is of impasse, of instability. They created this impasse, that is how it was systematic. I am certain that the impeachment is a process, that the truth is a tentative way of getting, indirectly, to the government or the presidency of the republic. Why? Because they do not have any way of getting to the presidency of the republic by way of a direct vote."

She also criticized the new cabinet picked by the interim president as being all white male with no women ministers. "I am very sad, that after so much time they don't have women or blacks in the cabinet. Why? It is about who we are, in a democratic state, it is fundamental for a country that has a majority, more than fifty percent (of Brazil's population) are women. It is a problem of representation. Secondly, because women have shown competence in all areas and there is no reason why they are not represented."

Maybe she has a point, but based on experience in America I am doubtful. Because when liberals do not get what they want, they play the race/gender card!
