Matthew Dowd, chief political analyst for ABC News, said white men like himself should give up positions of power so that minorities and women can have them instead.

Dowd wrote Sunday night in an opinion piece for ABC that it would be "morally right" for white men to trade out any leadership positions they have so that more minorities and women can take their place.

"Yes, let me repeat, we as white male Christians should do what real leadership demands and practice a level of humility which demonstrates strength by stepping back from the center of the room and begin to give up our seats at the table."

Dowd said it is up to white men to give minorities and women more leadership opportunities.

"Yes, we all have a purpose in this wonderful mysterious life, and our mission calls us to do that which is calling us in our hearts and souls," he said. "Maybe part of that mission as white male Christians is to practice real leadership by letting others step up while we step back."
