"A plethora of government-enforced diversity policies have marginalized

many white workers. The time has come to cease the false arguments and

He must plan on switching parties. The whole Democrat adgenda is based on social engineering and division in to groups competing for the table scraps of government programs.

Did this moron vote for the health care bill? Does he know there are built in quotas for medical schools and nursing schools?

He's a D. I don't believe him for a second.

Afirmative action is dead, Obama has replaced it with good ol’ fashioned Quotas.

Affirmative action is quotas. Just a more pleasant name.

Government-run diversity programs are illegal and unconstitutional. Every government agency that promotes them is breaking the law.
(some laws are invalid and illegal from the moment they are passed)

Webb is a very “Old School” Democrat.

Webb realizes he’s going to get his head handed to him in 2012 if he doesn’t distance himself from the Obama policies.
He’s still very much a D.

I don’t think there’s a Obama/Reid/Pelosi bill he hasn’t voted for.

The financial “reform” bill he supported also has race and gender preferences.

He’s up for reelection in 2012 and he’s scared that he’s going to be riding out of DC on Obama’s coattails.
