Poor But Happy forum user “webmanco” posts an excerpt of an article about Colombian General Luis Alberto Moore Perea and adds: “Here is another successful black Colombian, for those who think, blacks got no opportunities in Colombia.” A commenter from Cali, however, responds, “I would be happy to see how many black employees are employed besides the ones who are cleaning or cooking. (Hint: Not many if any).”
