Lip Service

Democrats and assorted liberals like to make a big deal about "diversity." They usually use diversity to mean different skin colors and ethnicities, not diversity of ideas. So, this makes this story particulary interesting:

WASHINGTON - A lack of minority representation at the upper levels of John Kerry's presidential campaign threatens to weaken enthusiasm among black and Hispanic voters, two core constituencies, some Democrats and advocacy groups say...

A campaign staff's makeup suggests what the White House staff could look like if the candidate wins, said Lisa Navarette, a vice president of the National Council of La Raza, a nonpartisan Hispanic advocacy group.

The average voter may not focus on this, she said, "but for people concerned about the strength of the commitment to diversity, you would have to be concerned."

Many in the Democratic party disdain and insult minorities that don't adhere to the left-liberal agenda as not being "really Hispanic" or "really black," and they accuse the Republicans of being the enemies of minorities. Meanwhile, President Bush has one of the most diverse cabinets in history, and the Democrats have derailed the appointments of notable and exemplary Hispanics such as Linda Chavez and Miguel Estrada. What's wrong with this picture?
