Today’s awesome black person is … Angela McGlowan! Let’s learn about the 1994 Miss District of Columbia USA!!! Take it away, Wikipedia.
Angela McGlowan is an American political commentator, best selling author, and CEO of Political Strategies & Insights (PSI), a government affairs, political strategy, public relations, and advocacy consulting firm based in Oxford, Mississippi, with an office in Washington, D.C. In 2010, she placed third in the Republican primary for a Congressional seat in Mississippi.
She’s a CEO! Not too many people are CEOs these days. And placing third in a Republican primary in the middle of Mississippi is … good, I think.
From 1999 to 2005, McGlowan served as director of Government Affairs and Diversity Development for Chairman Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation. She was directly responsible for the development and implementation of aggressive diversity initiatives within the Fox Entertainment Group and its owned and operated interests. She was also a lobbyist and advocate within News Corporation to Congress for federal, legislative, and regulatory policies supportive of corporate objectives
See, and people think Fox News is racist: they had a black woman running their diversity program! Not only that, but a former beauty pageant winning black woman. Fox News: Once you go black, you never go back.
Her book, Bamboozled: How Americans Are Being Exploited by the Lies of the Liberal Agenda, placed eighth on the Washington Area Bestseller List of the Washington Post for the week of Sunday, April 22, 2007
EIGHTH! Have you written a book that for one week was the 8th most purchased book in a given geographical area? I didn’t think so. You honkey racist.
She subsequently lost the Republican primary after coming in third place, garnering 20% of the vote. She was the first black female to run in Mississippi’s 1st congressional district, and left the race stating: “We lost the battle but won the war. A milestone was achieved for others to follow.”
Oh, ok. So that’s how her primary thing went. Hey, she was the first black chick to ever run. That’s cool. Ya know, one of the upsides to generations of institutional racism is that black people today get to do all kinds of “firsts.” Like, I’m a white Catholic. Do you think there’s ANYTHING that white Catholics haven’t done by now? “Ah, yes, I remember the first white guy to become a judge” said no one ever. Anyways. That’s enough for today.
