Job Qualification Should be All That Matters

Don’t judge others based on the color of their skin. Our culture has been taught not to judge individuals based on their race/ethnicity, yet when I read that Trump had chosen Alexander Acosta for his Labor Secretary I found it very interesting that each side of the political media brought his ethnicity/race into their articles. CNN’s John King, Manu Raju and Dan Merica wrote, “If confirmed, Acosta — the son of Cuban immigrants – would be the first Hispanic member of Trump’s Cabinet,” and Forbes’ Maggie McGrath reported, “He is the first Hispanic nominee to Trump’s Cabinet.”

This is a double standard because why does his ethnicity/race need to be brought into the article at all. This is our government, not a popularity contest. I want to hear about his qualifications that make him a good Labor Secretary and nothing else.
