A Change???

Someone said this to me awhile ago: here is how things work, in this country we have a hierarchy and it goes like this:

white man (our first choice)

black man (our next best choice)

white woman (a third option)

black woman (a fourth option)

all the other "minorities" (when all else fails???)...

Just makes me wonder if this is really about change or just following our comfort level?

Just wondering...
