Because the USA has diversity fever, and the only prescription for it is a Lateeenoh /Hiss-panic/ Person of Colour in the Oval Office. It is the only acceptable narrative. Get that through your head. No other option will do. Except for a Transgendered Lateeenah Womanista single mother.
It seems the trend-makers in the liberal and progressive media stratosphere have already identified the worthiest successor to Obama. And his surnaname is … Castro…. Ay Dios mio !!! Imagine anyone running for president in the USA with the surname Mussolini, Hitler, or Stalin. Or Pinochet, come to think of it. Kiss of death, for sure, for anyone with light pigmentation. But condescending neocolonial and neoracist attitudes toward skin color overcome all disadvantages and inconveniences in the Democratic Party. Tokenism rules! Besides, all politically-correct intelligent progressives know that the Castro brothers in that island just south of Florida have created a perfect utopia for their benighted, inferior Lateenoh subjects. There is no stigma on the Castro name. Just the opposite: the surname Castro evokes images of enlightened rulership, and, above all, progress for all inferior people of colour.
So, get ready, hermahnohs and hermahnahs: after four more years of Obama we are all predestined for eight years of Castro. And watch out, this Castro has a twin brother. So add another eight years on top of that.

Is Democratic Convention Keynote Speaker Julian Castro the Next Obama?
When Julian Castro, the San Antonio mayor, was announced Tuesday as the keynote speaker at the Democratic National Convention, the most common reaction among Democrats was “Who?”The first Latino ever tapped for the high-profile primetime address, 37-year-old Castro is the youngest mayor of a top-50 American city. Serving a second term after a 2011 reelection with 82.9 percent of the vote, the Stanford and Harvard Law graduate’s biography lists a number of accolades that make it clear he’s an up-and-comer. He made Time magazine’s list of “40 under 40,” and his life story is the embodiment of what we think of as the striving American. The son of a single mother, Castro and his twin brother, Joaquin, who also has a stellar résumé and is running for Congress in Texas, strike the same chords that Barack Obama did when he was selected to keynote the Democratic convention in 2004—that America is a land of opportunity where merit and hard work are rewarded.
While most national politicos had never heard of him before Tuesday, Castro has been a co-chair of the Obama campaign, and a campaign aide confirms he has been “a very effective surrogate on the stump.” As mayor, he has put into practice some of President Obama’s most cherished ideals by pressing a “new energy economy” and making educational attainment a priority. The Café College he established is a one-stop center to help students prepare for college.
Democrats cheered the choice of Castro—and the Spanish-language network Univision, which broke the news of his selection Tuesday, tweeted that the Castro story gave its website its best traffic day ever.
So, is Julian Castro the next Obama? Our experts debate his preemptive title on NewsBeast.
“He’s young, energetic, and impressive, exactly the kind of message the party wants to send,” says Matt Bennett, a cofounder of the centrist Democratic group Third Way.
