Why is it that blacks make up only some 13% of the US population, but some 17% of government employees?
You mean all this fuss and expense and effort yields only a 4% spread?
My belief is that the 17% you cite may be way low because of this administrations propensity for widespread arrogant and open discrimination against "Caucasians" in all areas of government employment. Their "chickens have come home to roost" already with numerous mistakes being made in the most simplistic areas of management. Unqualified individuals are being hired on an affirmative action basis and not on a standard of the most qualified.
