    MY ENCOUNTER AS A UN NGO REPRESENTATIVE WITH THE WHITE HOUSE IS CONTRARY TO THIS REPORT. THE HIGH LEVEL OF INFLUENCE, EARNING POWER, AND APPOINTMENTS OF BLACK WOMEN AS OPPOSED TO MEXICAN AMERICAN WOMEN AND NATIVE AMERICAN WOMEN, BOTH INDIGENOUS UNDER UN CRITERIA, ARE OVER-REPRESENTED COMPARATIVELY TO ALL OTHER GROUPINGS. ALSO, WHY IS CANDOLEEZA RICE WHO IS THE FIRST BLACK WOMEN APPOINTED TO A CABINET LEVEL POSITION AS SECRETARY OF STATE NOT LISTED IN ANY OF YOUR ORGANIZATIONS REPORTS? MY NGO SERVES THE CONSEQUENCES OF IGNORING THE NEEDS OF GIRLS AND WOMEN IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND THE REST OF LDC REGIONS WITH SOMETIMES TRAGIC CONSEQUENCES. RARELY DO WE HAVE AFRO-AMERICAN WOMEN VOLUNTEERING TO HELP OR EVEN HOUSE SOME OF THE REFUGEES AND TORMENTED GIRLSNOT EVEN FROM WEALTHY DEMOCRATS AND APPOINTEES. VERY FRUSTRATING AND LEADS TO A SERIOUS COMPLAINT REGARDING TRUTHFULNESS. REALLY? TOO PARTISAN.
