Well - yeah.  Discriminatory as hell.  Why can't a black leader have white (or Asian or middle Eastern) girls in the troop?  Why do "white girls" need a "white leader?"

Where the hell do you live?

This was the original a d, I thought I'd change whites with latinas though to see if the response would be different:
