Black History Month: 12 African Americans who are greening the nation
The previous comments missed the point of the article, perhaps because they didn't actually read the article. Even in today's supposedly post-racial America it continues to be important that all people are reminded about the significant contributions of African-Americans.
SO tired of dividing the country into African Americans, Chinese Americans, Mexican Americans, whatever... If the headline said "12 White Americans who are greening the nation", people would cry racism. SUCH a double standard. It's 2011. Can we please get over what color your skin is--black, white, yellow, brown, purple... Who cares. We're all Americans, right?
