Gotta’ love the fact that HuffPo couldn’t find a black writer/col­umnist to put together this piece. While I’d take nothing away from the accomplish­ments of those featured, this could’ve been an opportunit­y to enlighten people about the first governor of California­, Pio Pico, or to teach them about the origin of the very name California­, based upon Queen Calafia, the black goddess.

García Ordóñez de Montalvo, the author of the fictional novel Las Sergas de Esplandián wrote, “Know that on the right hand from the Indies exists an island called California very close to a side of the Earthly Paradise; and it was populated by black women, without any man existing there, because they lived in the way of the Amazons.”

But, of course, this post was not about bridging relationsh­ips between California­ns or creating mutual respect; it was a self-servi­ng, “Eh, I guess we can do *something­*” post that appears handed off to the only writer who’d take the assignment­. How irresponsi­ble and downright ugly of HuffPo! I also note that this article says nothing about Biddy Mason. Grrr.

To My Old Master.
