How much money do you want to bet that the first living person on a U.S. Postal Service stamp will be black?

LA replies:

A thousand dollars!

Sophia replies:

OK, but only if the dollars are virtual.

I’m not going to bet you any real dollars, but I strongly suspect that the first living person to be on a stamp will be (a) black, and/or (b) a woman…. (go down the checklist).

LA replies:

I wasn’t proposing to bet you. I was saying I would be willing to vote a thousand dollars that the first person on such a stamp will be black.
