He would be the first black to run a Spanish-language station. At least in Houston.
Gavin, do You mean, the First “African American Man”?
Yes, black like Latinos not just gringos. We wanna help out too, this is why I’m an black activist.

I think Glenn can clarify that.

In England and in France people who are black are referred to as “black” not “Afrobritish” “Francoafrican”, Afroeuropean”, or some ridiculous euphemism like African-american.

The black people I interact with on a regular or semi-regular basis are called Samantha, Charles, Oye, Mary, Rich, Yag and Danny.
We consider them individuals, whom we call by their names.
On the rare occasions the discussion shifts to questions of race, society, politics and so on, we don’t use contorted labels such as African-whatever. We refer to them as “black people”.
I am white. Samantha, Charles, Oye, Mary, Rich, Yag and Danny don’t call me “white”. They call me by my name. They rightly expect (and receive) the same treatment in reverse.
Thank goodness we don’t live in a racist society.
