I almost feel as if...

they want you to parade your black staff around. Treat them like something special. It's clearly not color blindness, it's preference. They get you to fear this question, which then forces you to consider race. This is the norm, this is why an "entitled white girl" would write to ivy league schools, because she felt stepped on. Media pushes hard on these buttons so if an Ivy league school when questioned could parade around their diversity.

That question shouldn't have even been answered, and Rand fell into the trap. Michelle was happy to hear him squirm as well. We have to stop doing this.

Rand, maybe something along the lines of, "We hire the best staff possible, race or ethnicity isn't part of our criteria" Stick that in your pipe Meeeeeshell.
