‘Almost Uniformly White’: How Diverse is Obama’s Campaign Staff, Really?
The Blaze ^ | April 9, 2012 | Mytheos Holt

Posted on 04/09/2012 6:37:27 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

In yet another example of its ongoing attempts to be “media savvy,” the Obama campaign has posted a photo of its staff on the campaign’s Tumblr, intended to show off the (presumably) totally cool and hip people working for Obama.

Why pay Blacks, when they will work for barry for free?

This article is stupid. Of course Obama's campaign staff includes many people of color.

That's a picture of the Obama campaign's Department of White People.

Almost universally white. I think I see a half-black person in the back, but he has light white skin unlike Obama. So there is a token negro.

There’s a lot more diversity at a Tea Party event.

I'd call them Chippies. They look like chips off the old hippy block.

The guy waaaaaay in the back just to the right of the blue picture might be black.

Jeeez, you would think at least 12 percent of them would be black.

Dead center, way in the back. To the right of the blue flag. Guy wearing black shirt, black hat. Hands just about to clap. To quote Zim, “He looks black.”

Diversity is only required for NON-LIBERALS. For White Liberals they do not have any diversity requirements because they are telling everyone else to have diversity and that should be enough. Remember that for liberals it is not about actions it is about talking...The same goes for paying more taxes (they want higher taxes but they find every possible way under the sun to pay the least taxes), living in diversed neighborhoods (they preach diversity but yet they live in lilly white neighborhoods), etc...

Yes this proves without any doubt that liberalism is a mental instability because no person with a stable mind and conscious would be that shockingly hypocrite.

I think they had to take a test ... liberal, white guilt, living off family’s money, not exceeding bright but bought a Harvard degree, potential communist, has sheepish tendencies, lives in basement at home, runs with scissors, etc.
