Is “McDonald’s CEO Black” racist statement?

It seems that this wouldn’t have been pointed out if he were white. It is an important milestone, but with a ?Black President, Black Coaches winning the Super Bowl, and lots of Black Executives at all levels it seems that this is not a necessary statement or headline. I can see that he is Black from his photo. I was more interested in his qualifications for the job and how he made it there.

    I’m just curious! Would you be as interested in his qualifications for the job and how he got there if he were white? Notice, I didn’t ask if you would be interested.  I said, “as interested.”

    Would you boycott Micky Dee’s or demand he step down if he wasn’t qualified ?
