So how’s that “leading us into a ‘post-racial America’ and a truly colorblind society” thing coming along, Mr. President?

From the Houston Chronicle:

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has signed an executive order directing the federal government to design a new strategy for hiring, promoting and keeping workers of diverse backgrounds.

Why can’t that “strategy” simply be coming up with better ways to gauge general competence and productivity? (pause for laughter)

The three-page order released Thursday directs the head of the Office of Personnel Management, a deputy director at the Office of Management and Budget and two other agencies to develop the strategy within 90 days. Agencies then have 120 days to implement it.

An Office of Personnel Management report says that in fiscal year 2010, the federal workforce was 66.2 percent white, 17.7 percent black, 8 percent Hispanic, 5.6 percent Asian/Pacific Islander, 1.8 percent Native American. It was 56.1 percent male.

Read the above percentages again. They’re fairly close to the breakdown of the general population — with the government actually employing a higher percentage of African-Americans than are in the population in general. The “diversity” of Federal employees does seem to reflect the makeup of the country — so what’s with the “Executive Order”? Sounds like even more mandated racism is on the way. And I’m sure it has nothing to do with warding off the Black Caucus’s impending mutiny against Obama — not at all… just a coincidence I’m sure.

Finally, if the president has a problem with the fact that there seems to be slightly more men than women working in government when compared to the percentage of the general population, Obama could easily remedy that by firing Biden as VP, replacing him with Hillary, and then resigning the presidency.

    The government is suffering from a lack of diversity. There's a severe shortage of people who have a clue.

    When Obama-Doom gets his eviction notice next year he will sign as many of those execu-ma-tive orders as it takes to get all da brudders right where he wants them. It's all part of the neverending *reparations* package. If you're white, you owe the black community.

    And he also signed an executive order regarding the Dream Act – providing amnesty for college students – going against what congress voted down. To hell with the people – march on oh Marxist one.
