Juan Pablo Galavis, a soccer star from Venezuela, is the newest "Bachelor" on the ABC reality show.

He`s the first Hispanic surnamed "Bachelor", and one news outlet put up this headline:

ABC Names First Non-White `Bachelor`, by Kimberly Nordyke, Hollywood Reporter,August 5, 2013

With this photograph:

Sorry, no! The name Galavis comes from Estremadura,where there is a noble family of that name, with coats of arms and everything.

In Venezuela, there was a Governor of the Federal District in the 1930s called Galavis.

I believe he shot a bunch of people, no doubt for reasons that seemed good to him. That`s Venezuelan politics for you, but it`s upper-class white Venezuelan politics, not the anti-white populism of Hugo Chavez,  Bolivia`s Evo Morales...or Tucson Congressman Raul Grijalva.

You don`t have to look up the history of Spain and Venezuela to know that, you can just look at the damn photograph.

See earlier my post on Marco Rubio:Marco Rubio, "Coconut" Or "Great White Hope"? and Diversity before Diversity: Judge Leander Perez  for more on this phenomenon.<
