Quote:
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) ― Click to enlarge1 of 1
Hines Ward started the Helping Hands Foundation more than three years ago to end racism against bi-racial Koreans. (File)


President Obama has announced he will appoint Ward to a post in his administration.

Ward has been picked as a member of the president's Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.

Ward has been reaching out to children in Asia for years through his Helping Hands Foundation.

Excellent! I don't care what anyone thinks about his politics either...this is quite the honor for Ward, and a great pick by Obama to have Ward as a member of this advisory commission.

I gotta say, this is a great thread title too. At first glance I definitely didn't think it was about what it was going to be about.

This is great for Hines and i'm sure he'll continue to excel with off the field programs.

Yes...and let's hope as Hines hopes that a biracial half black half Asian person can be well loved and equally treated even when not a superstar football player.
