WASHINGTON -- The head of the Arkansas NAACP on Friday challenged 3rd District Rep. John Boozman's commitment to diversity in the judiciary after the congressman announced six candidates for a vacant federal judge position.
Boozman, R-Rogers, forwarded the names of three whites and three blacks to President Bush, who will select one person from that list to replace the late U.S. District Judge George Howard, who was black.
Dale Charles, president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People's state conference said he thought only blacks should have been on the list.
Howard, who held court in the Little Rock-based Eastern District, was the first black federal judge in Arkansas.
Boozman said he looked for the best candidates for the job, regardless of race.
"I recall him saying race would not be his first criteria for a replacement, which I strongly disagree with," Charles said. "Him having said that then gives one the mindset to question whether he believes in diversity."

I’m confused, who’s the racist in this story????
Dale Charles is a Black Racist.
I judge people by their skin color. I hear it’s OK to do that nowadays.
For crying out loud!
What does that say about this racist organization.
What a bunch of racists.
Where is Je$$ie and Al $harpton?
If a white guy had said this, he'd be lynched.........
It's much easier to go by that than by their character.
Well,.....some are just more equal than others.
“I recall him saying race would not be his first criteria for a replacement, which I strongly disagree with,” Charles said. “Him having said that then gives one the mindset to question whether he believes in diversity.”
This guy needs a brain transplant.
‘Diversity = 3 blacks! You can’t make this stuff up.....’
Sure you can, Liberals did so about forty years ago....(chuckle)
Ahh, I see now.... According to the NAACP, apparently relying on Justice Brennan’s faulty notion of the cycle of racism... (i.e. it’s okay to discriminate against those who were the discriminators in the past), if one doesn’t consider race as a qualification, then one must be racist. And all along I had the miguided notion that Martin Luther King, Jr. wanted people to be judged on the “content of their character” not the “color of their skin”. Silly me.
Get your Liberalspeak straight. ;)
The race problem in the US will continue until the day comes when blacks listen to Dr. King and make his dream a reality. Whites have done all that they can to make the dream a reality. Now the task belongs to the blacks: they must end their racist ways.
Brutha Charles is a black racist. He should be fired immediately.
He is demanding that the constitutional rights of whites be violated because of their skin color. Watta twit!
