Sydney Barber to be first black woman as US Naval Academy brigade commander

Midshipman First Class Sydney Barber will take charge as brigade commander of the US Naval Academy for the spring semester. This will be a first in the prestigious military school’s 175-year history. The 21-year-old from Lake Forest, Illinois, will wear the distinctive six stripes on her uniform and lead 4,500 midshipmen until she graduates with her degree in mechanical engineering.

Ok, and? People live and die by their commander's decisions, here's hoping she's the best for the job.

Hollywood is supposed to reflect real life, not influence it. Diversity hire is not a viable military option.
