HOT ANGELENO – Ralph J. Bunche

Ralph J. Bunche signing stuffSome people believe L.A.’s most important residents are the ones who have reality shows… but today’s sizzling Hot Angeleno was sexy cool in his own right. He didn’t have rock hard abs (that we know of), but he clearly worked pretty hard on other less-important things.

HiddenLA‘s HOT Angeleno of the Day: RALPH JOHNSON BUNCHE!!!

(August 7, 1904-1971) Orphaned at age 12, Ralph and his two sisters moved to Los Angeles to live with their grandmother, a former slave who “appeared Caucasian on the outside but was all black fervor inside.” As a teen he was an accomplished athlete who worked all sorts of odd jobs to help his family survive. He was the senior class valedictorian at Jefferson High School in South Central and began his college studies at UCLA (which was then located on Vermont where City College is). Then he went on to get a few other degrees and do a few other important things. And he helped to write some stuff too. Oh yeah, I almost forgot… then at 46 years of age he became THE VERY FIRST PERSON OF COLOR FROM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD to ever receive the Nobel Prize for Peace. OMG! TOTALLY HOTTTTT!!! (more…)
