Another Desperately Needed Obama Initiative!

Wisely and courageously responding to a grave crisis that the American People are facing, President Obama issued an executive order establishing a "Coordinated Government - wide Initiative to Promote Diversity and Inclusion in the Federal Workforce." Here are a few of the deeply troubling statistics that demonstrate the systematic exclusion of African-Americans from government employment:

1) African-Americans are 13.6% of the population, yet they only make up 17.5% of the federal workforce, which means they are over-represented by only 77.7%!

2) Nearly 21% of African-Americans are employed by the government, as opposed to 17% of white workers!

I am confident that this brave initiative to increase diversity in our painfully homogeneous government work force, he will further improve its unmatched record for efficiency and cost effectiveness! Thank you, oh thank you President Obama for transcending petty election time politics!
