Ya got to hand it to the Seattle City Council.... they openly state that they should appoint a "woman of color" to the vacancy left be Jim Compton, they then weed down the 98 candidates to the top 6 applicants, 5 of which are women of color and 1 white lesbian... and then choose whitey. I can not wait to hear the reaction from the "communities of color".
Just do not pay any attention to the law that states its illegal to discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting... cause after all, this is Seattle.
So here is my question... 98 candidates in a city that is 70 percent white and not one male and not one heterosexual white female makes the top 6. Einstein couldn't figure those odds. What was that Andrew came home from school saying the other day... "will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character".
