What a waste of tax payers money.
It doesn't matter the race or sex of a leader but the question is can they lead?
Do you want racial and sexual equality at the expense of the best person for the job? Ridiculous. Do you care what color your quarterback is as long has he can win the game?

I wonder what the reaction would be if you read that a new report says that there are too many black men leading the NBA or street gangs?

Your point is well taken about the basketball players!

I think short white men should protest. I think there needs to be a taxpayer study to check this out.

In the NFL, only 10% of Wide Receivers are white.. does this mean the teams in the NFL have to start recruiting more white wide receivers?

The argument is literally NO different, so if you stand behind the OP here, you better stand behind the evening out of NFL positions, and I sure hope you don't play fantasy football!

Maybe there's more white people at the top because theres a higher abundance of whites that join with degrees as opposed to out of high school? I swear to god, people are becoming dumber with the years..
Now we're going to have affirmative action in the Military.

This won't end well.
