Just what is that suppose to mean?

Dose it mean not the first 'black' graduate? We know that is not true.

Does it mean not the first 'hispanic' graduate" We should not believe that it not true, but I, personally, do not know.

Aaaaw! The person who is both 'black' AND 'hispanic'.

I'm going to label this shit 'invoking the color code'.

American society is always yelling about the 'race card'.

Yet America is constantly applying the 'color code' to Americans of African ancestry, known and unknown.

What an insult.

Why couldn't this soldier, even in death, be recognized for who she is/was, e.g. Jamaican-American, or Cuban-American, or Columbian-American. or Mexican-American, etc.

No. She MUST identified by her color and (ancestral) language even in death.

If someone identifies as any of the above people in the colour code, then you still can't say for sure that a person is identifing by his or her race. Its only their ethnic group because you'll find these ethnic groups have many races,small or large. A person of African descent if their hispanic should have the option to call themselves Afro-Latino American or African Latino ect .I think that description is more broad.
