Competence, Diversity, Blah Blah Blah

I happened to catch this letter written down at someplace called the Daily Record and the thing I love about these op-ed pieces is that always go under the assumption that when people of color and their communities want people that look like them in positions of power - that they won't be qualified.

And it gets old.

I mean people of color or my peeps from the LGBT crowd - or both - aren't as qualified as anyone else?


Affirmative Action - or whatever you want to call making sure that anyone who isn't a white male (or wasn't a Vietnam Veteran) - is in place to make sure that white guys who aren't qualified don't keep on getting into positions of power over other qualified candidates.

See the difference?
