Racially fair media representation should start inside Buckingham Palace.

Our society has made major strides with minority representation in the media over the past decade. However, we still have a long way to go, so the next step should be big.

Let’s make a minority Queen of England.

It’s 2017. It’s about time. No offense to Queen Elizabeth II, but she has had the role for long enough.

Here are 7 women of color whom would all be fantastic choices to be the new Queen, effective immediately.

1. Oprah Winfrey

The American media mogul would be a perfect fit to be Queen of England. She’s caring, universally liked, and very rich. Who better to wear the crown than she?

2. Indra Nooyi

The Indian-born CEO of of PepsiCo would have more business acumen than any Queen in history. A great choice.

3. Thai Ing-wen

4. Sonia Sotomayor

Another barrier-breaker in her own right, Sotomayor is the first Latina justice to sit on the United States Supreme Court, and would be the first Latina to sit on the throne.

5. Arundhati Bhattacharya

The first woman to be Chairperson of the State Bank of India, Bhattacharya was ranked as the world’s 25th most powerful woman by Forbes in 2016. A power fitting for the next Queen.

6. Michelle Obama

Already having served as First Lady of the United States for eight years with dignity and many accomplishments, Obama could make a seamless transition from the White House to Buckingham Palace.

7. Beyonce Knowles

The final and most natural choice to replace Elizabeth II, the American performer Beyonce has earned the nickname “Queen Bey” due to her immense talent and popularity. It’s only right that she becomes a different type of queen now. The Queen of England.
