A top adviser to Donald Trump on diversity issues is offering no apologies for the preponderance of white men filling the Cabinet and key jobs in the new administration, insisting that the lack of minorities reflected the president-elects color-blind approach to hiring decisions.
Bruce Levell, who spearheaded a minority outreach effort for the Trump campaign and now serves as an adviser to the transition team, said that Mr. Trump isnt looking to check off diversity boxes with his hiring decisions and thats OK with black and Hispanic Americans.
President-elect Trump doesnt really so much look at the Cabinet and say, Hey, I need a black guy over here and I need a woman over there, said Mr. Levell, executive director of the National Diversity Coalition for Trump. He fights very hard to put the best individual thats qualified who can run the agency for his administration. Most people of color are OK with the fact that, Hey, if this person is qualified and can do the job, then God bless him.

What> No African American transgendered midget position?
Does one want their doctor to be chosen with diversity in mind -— or ability??
What a bizarre approach.
What> No African American transgendered midget position?”
that walks with a limp and is on oxygen
Media says: “Diversitocracy: It’s got more electrolytes!!”
Trump looks at job qualifications besides skin melanin content? RAAACIST!
Liberals cannot even conceive the idea that you pick someone purely by abilities rather than by the number of boxes they tic off.
“Ability, not diversity, is key in Trumps color-blind Cabinet”
As it should be. Get the best.
The days of Participation Trophies are over. Back to the tried and true, Winners and Losers, which teaches to work hard and strive to excel. Ya gotta earn success has to be taught again.
Well said, it’s past time to do exactly that.
I can’t understand how we even allowed such stupidity in the first place. Liberalism is indeed a mental disease.
Color-blind? Sounds like they will all be Klansmen! Buncha rayciss!
This is what nondiscrimination actually looks like. It’s when you hire the best person for the job, regardless of colour, race, etc. It is not when you hire someone for the job based on their colour, race, etc.
I don’t know why this isn’t pointed out more when criticism comes their way.
Finally...a President who isn’t a lunatic.
I don't think they're necessarily lunatics, so much as they don't understand that policies that don't perform and provoke vast swaths of the productive, responsible citizenry are BAD policies by definition.
I disagree...they are lunatics...especially Clown Prince nobama.
Content of Character, not color if skin! Dr King would have voted for The Donald!
I noted that in the typical Democratic Administration, "virtue signaling"--by checking off the Diversity boxes-- is more important than picking people of ability.
