Beware the spokesperson. Usually he/she is spokespersoning only for him/herself.
I'll give you a hint. When the media identify someone as a "community leader," and the person hasn't been elected by anyone, you can count on it: he's not a leader and the community has never heard of him.
He's someone who is looking for power and influence (maybe in a good cause , God knows) through a shortcut, especially since his chances of ever being elected a leader are minimal.

THE SAME GOES for "con- sumer advocates," "public interest groups," and "women's rights leaders": their causes rnav be just, honorable. righteous - and noble, but no one elected them to anything. The people they claim to be speaking for f]1"0bat:Hdyisa- gree with what is being advocat- ed in their name
