Throughout the U.S. history, it was all white male who held U.S. Presidency. However, this can't but change down the road. Is America as a whole ready to disregard the race, religion and gender when voting for her President? I think more ready than 60s or 70s, but probably not. What do you think will be different when a non-white person is elected for U.S. Presidency? As to WHEN that will happen, that's another issue which is uncertain.

I'm sorry I really don't know but there are many non-whites who occupy important positions

Yes, that is true. Such as Congress men and women, governors, lieutenant governors and etc. (However, even in that non-white category, I'm sorry to say there definitely and unfortunately is a racial hierarchy.) That is why non-white male US president is bound to happen.
