Black Woman: Another Milestone in Corporate America


This is Ursula Burns, who will become the first female (of African descent) of a major American Corporation.

Per the New York Times:

Ms. Burns is the first African-American woman to run a company this large. Xerox reported revenue of $17.6 billion in 2008.

By the way, I put her picture here for a reason: her hair is natural. She looks very professional to me.

Frankly, I’m tired of reading from the paranoid among us who think that everyone cares about our hair. Only we do, no one else. They care about the brain beneath the hair.

I salute you, Ms. Burns.
