The Washington Free Beacon ^ | April 9, 2012 | BY: Andrew Stiles

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 BuzzFeed report Monday.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has come under fire from African-American groups in recent years alleging that the party organization has failed to award contracts to black-owned business despite repeated pledges to advance the interests such firms.

The Obama campaign did not immediately return a request for comment.

So you’re telling me that in circumstances where results are important to Obama, he uses an all-white staff? Isn’t that racist of him?

I can't imagine how bad that room smells with all of those unwashed hippies in it.

And, I'd also bet that every single one of them is thinking to themselves: "See! I can't possibly be a racist. I LOVE Obama!"

(yes, these are big assumptions, but i'm in a bad mood today..... it's been a long monday)

No. I see two or three Asians in there. “Our strength is in our diversity”, if I recall the loop recording correctly.

That's cuz those comprise the political wing. Of the military wing, you've already seen pictures of Rev. Wright's congregation. Apparently, the coalition forces don't do a whole lot of intermingling.

If you look all the way back in the left hand corner there appears to be one black man. I think he is mopping the floor.

Most of them are giving up another summer in Europe to participate.

I can smell the patchouli oil and clove cigarettes from here.

Not only are there no blacks, there are also no Pacific Islanders, “black” Hispanics (as opposed to those “white Hispanics”, Muslims, or kippah/tichel-wearing Jews either. Hypocrites!

...almost uniformly white...
How fitting.

Chocolate on the outside with white on the inside.
