First*

“The first _____ to do this or that” sensationalism sort of robs an individual of their individual achievement. Hey, this person did something phenomenal! But he or she was the first person of ____ to do that? Doesn’t that make it more phenomenal? N’aw, it just means white dudes been doing that shit since forever, when you put it like that. Why not celebrate an individual’s individual achievement, for a change, without making poster children, for a change?
