    Misty Copeland, 32, has become the first black ballerina to lead the ABT 


    Maybe Blacks are taking over this country.


    Misty was born in Kansas City, but that wasn’t held against her.


    She’s appeared in a Diet Dr. Pepper commercial

    and went on tour as a dancer with Prince during his 20Ten tour


    “My fears are that it could be another two decades before another black woman is in the position that I hold with an elite ballet company,” Misty wrote in her autobiography last year.

    “That if I don’t rise to principal, people will feel I have failed them.”

    Well, you have not failed us. So dance my black swan.
