It's the year 2020 and the US is just now getting its first ever African-American cardinal?

Well, they've had African cardinals.  Currently quite a few African cardinals.  First African cardinal was Laurean Rugambwa, and he was made a cardinal in 1960.

Ah. Ok. Thanks for clarifying.
Wasn't Tutu a cardinal?
Or was he even on the same team?

It's been a while

According to the Wikis, only 5% of African Americans are Catholic.  About 4% of U.S. Catholics are African American.  That does come out to about 3,000,000 people though.

He's stacking the diocese with liberal ( or conservative? ) cardinals!

They need relief pitching and to revisit the role of women in the church

Wrong denomination. He was Anglican (and a great preacher).

And the reason for this is most of the South was Calvinist type protestant, so that's the flavor of Christianity they were exposed to. The main exception was southern Louisiana and that is where you will find the majority of black Catholics.

I don't think Gibbs will go for that.

Our local news did not segue well from sports & I heard, "... and when we return, we'll tell you the name of the first black Cardinal who was named today!" I thought, "No, that can't be right." When they returned with, "And in the Catholic Church today ...,"  the penny dropped.  Just outta curiousity, I need to go a-Googling."

That's how come, when they go out, they order in Latin....the universal language

I keep looking for an old clip of Jack Clarke... not known for his athleticism but a pretty good ballplayer, making a leap catch on a line drive at first base.  Pretty much everyone in the booth was in agreement that they'd just seen an infielder rob a home run.  (Ozzie would have had the reflexes for it, but there is a lot less room for line drives down the lines than over in the gap behind short stop.)

He made a pretty good Cardinal.  Ozzie Smith for Pope.
