Do as we say, not as we do.
...... A photo of Obama’s “army” originally posted on the campaign’s Tumblr site (http://barackobama.tumblr.com/) and run in conjunction with a BuzzFeed story on the Obama campaign reveals a stunning lack of diversity among the president’s Chicago staff.

The Obama campaign’s Chicago headquarters has it all—from Jack Daniels and Ping Pong to bouncy balls and ironic desk mementos.

Yet the “army of twenty-somethings” campaign manager Jim Messina has assembled in the president’s hometown is almost uniformly white, according to photos contained in a detailed (http://www.buzzfeed.com/hastingsmillersmith/its-game-on-in-chicago) BuzzFeed report Monday........

Glock Talk has rules that keep me from saying.

So aside from that, The stunning lack of diversity is more than just race. Those people all look like they went to the same starbucks together between classes, because they think hanging at starbucks is cool.

"Dumb $h1*s" was the first two-word phrase that occurred to me -- but yours is certainly appropriate.

Yup -- a Klan rally couldn't be any whiter.

I've always believed that leftists like diversity in theory -- they just don't want to have to personally interact with any minorities.

Well, now it makes sense why Obama was playing with the Harlem Globetrotters today. (http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/04/hoopster-in-chief-puts-own-image-on-ball/) He had to...his campaign is staffed by the Washington Generals.

Maybe they represent Obama's white half, and there's another picture that represents his black half?

Asians are not considered "minorities"; take it from someone who is an Asian. When I was a kid, I applied for a "minority" scholarship and was told clearly that this was meant for Black and Hispanics only. That was >25 years ago, and all indicators I've seen, the race-division has gotten worse since.

Yeah -- I hear the word "minorities" used incessantly by agitators like Sharpton and Jackson, and leftists in general. But you KNOW the subtext of what they're saying is exclusively dealing with African-Americans.

What also baffles me is that women are deemed an equivalent "minority" by the FedGov, even though they constitute more than 50 percent of the population. And if demographic trends continue, Hispanics will constitute the largest percentage in this country -- will they still fall under the classification of "minority"? :dunno:

BHO is just a half black commodity rebranded as a black product and sold to gullible minorities by sales pitches written by white snake oil salesmen. (I'm surprised his ad men didn't put his face on the label of a brand of 40oz malt liquors.) BHO's election campaign only produced sound bites ambiguously offering "Hope and Change", and that was genius, because it actually came to pass. Most folks are now hoping for a change next election.

Stupid white college kids!

They are not going to like the kind of America that Obama and his merry men will leave them.

Being born white. It is no longer fashionable in progressive circles and they cannot remedy the condition with a make-over, no matter how much of Dad's money they spend.

...but he's so charismatic and his speeches make them FEEL so good! :upeyes:

Trust me, I was 25 when Obama was running for President. Talking sense to his supporters was pointless. They were emotionally invested in him.

Tru dat. Emotion over reason and logic is the battle cry of the progressives.
