And the significance is what? coz they are black?
It might mean something before black people could sit in the front of the bus, or before Chinese can only come to America to build railroads. But if Arnold can run for the governor, I dont really see any signifinace of that.

Althea was the first to win the French, Wimbledon, and US Open.

The Australian is the only questionable one, whether you want to pick Goolagong or Serena.

so you think because black people can sit in the front of the bus and chinese people aren't building railroads? there is no significance in the acheivement of "minorities"????

good thing I don't see any significance in the opinion of a Canadian!!!
