Yesterday, CBC had an article that began: The RCMP made history in Regina Wednesday as Chief Superintendent Russ Mirasty became the first aboriginal to command a division of the national police force.

I find it sad that we are still celebrating firsts. Don't get me wrong, we should totally celebrate this. It's an amazing feat for an aboriginal to get to such a position in the RCMP. What's sad is that we haven't destroyed all these milestones years and years ago. It's truly a sign that we do not live in an equitable society yet.

I don't have the brainpower to expand on this thought.
