First African American first lady? (Your input please)
JRM-2M6

Posted on 09/10/2004 7:49:12 PM PDT by JRM-2M6

Has any of you given any thought to this fact?

Teresa Heinz Kerry is the wife of Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts and the former wife of the late Senator John Heinz of Pennsylvania. Heinz Kerry was born in Mozambique, the daughter of a Portuguese medical doctor. She earned a bachelor's degree from the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa,

Mozambique Location : South-eastern Africa, bordering the Mozambique Channel, between South Africa and Tanzania

So if John Kerry is elected , Teresa Heinz Kerry could rightfully claim to be the first "AFRICAN AMERICAN FIRST LADY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" a rich white women

I much prefer Condolizza Rice...but then, she's not African. She's simply American.

Condi 08.
If there were more than a 2k cap, I would give it now!
She would be the most amazing commander in chief! Talk about the Reagan revolution, can you all imagine the Condi revolution? (Sorry Dr. Rice, I know you don't like being called Condi, but it is with all respect, just like we call Bush, W.)

Stranger things have happened. Bill Clinton was "the first black President", and Queen Elizabeth, it turns out, is of black African origin (among many other things as well).

It may be irony, but it is irrelevant and inane irony. It is just a waste of bandwidth.

The term "African American" is a PC term for black here in the USA. So no, she could try to claim that but she would be soundly rejected.

Being born in China doesn't make you Chinese.

Being born in America does make you an American. You confuse race with nationality.

Well, no, you're right... but at least he had some personality. She's a shrew with a screw loose who never learned the fine art of strategic silence.

What a load of tripe. Technically since scientists believe that life started in Africa, then I am an African-American several centuries removed.
Since I was born here that also makes me a Native-American.
Momma T's ancestors, having been slave owners in Africa makes her the first slave owner 1st lady of the last 2 centuries.

These are all AMERICAN WOMEN who's ancestry is from Africa..and were a part of American culture. Being a white American male I grew up with most of these ladies and more than what is just pictured here.. Even Lena Horn...she was still around when I was a kid. I don't remember third from the top.

I think that's Billie Holliday. Can't remeber if it's two Ls or one hehehe. If african-american is synonymous with black well they'd be more african-american than Mama T. When the term first came into usage, there were not a lot of African immigrants in America that it would cause any confusion. Even Eartha Kitt and Lena Horne aren't african-american, they're half white. I like American, it's a lot less confusing.
