White people, must "step down so" "more people of color, gays" and "other people" "can have power." And thereby "change the problem" of whites running the show.
What do you think of this statement?

I think the focus should be on getting quality people in power. Simply having different races of people in power isn't going to fix anything. Corruption is the real issue and that problem can be fixed by getting people in office who have integrity.

It's a very racist, ignorant comment. But, since he's part of BO's administration, it doesn't surprise me. We all know BO has the same mentality many blacks have. They think the white man somehow "owes" them something because their ancestors were slaves.
What they fail to realize, or admit, is that people of their OWN color SOLD their ancestors into slavery.
I've got news for them, I'm not "stepping down" for anybody. I don't "owe" anyone - ANYTHING!

...unless we are conscious of the need to have more people of color, gays, other people in those positions we will not change the problem...
I disagree. Look around. Blacks, Latinos, women are all moving into positions of power in this country. We have a black president, a women Sec. of State, and a Latino woman justice. Making a conscious effort means not being color-blind, it's focusing on differences. Focusing on race and gender is discriminatory.

Step down from what?
I think he needs to schedule surgery (before any HC legislation passes, just in case) to remove the giant chip on his shoulder.
