I could have sworn that this thread had something to do with a "first" involving African-Latin American Latin Americans. (Or is it African Latin American-Latin Americans? I can never quite remember exactly where that hyphen goes...)
And that assignment is very CONDITIONAL at best.
In truth many Blacks want it to be the "First Black __________________ THAT I AGREE WITH". From Colin Powell to Condi Rice, the list goes on.
The funny thing is that they don't realize that the "actorvist" types that they DO tend to support will NEVER BE THE FIRST BLACK SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY, SECRETARY OF DEFENSE or another Black Secretary of State. These are the 3 key departments in the Executive Branch. No FAKE REBELS who like "speaking truth to power" will EVER assume the role of an EXECUTIVE having to adopt policies and IMPLEMENT THEM.
A ROCK THROWER can stand on the notion that "She is RIGHT" and "See I told you so".....never having to insure that a single drop of oil must be fed to the economy BASED ON THE POLICIES that are enforced to keep the AMERICAN ECONOMY GOING.
