Obama’s nominees are all white, but it’s totally cool because Obama is black.

Or something.

Apparently, once you’ve got one black dude on the roster, your diversity requirement is satisfied.

SOLEDAD O’BRIEN, CNN: President Obama’s picks for his new cabinet members are raising some questions about diversity, actually a lot of questions about diversity. Where are the women, for example? Where are the people of color for example? Let’s take a look at his four newest choices, one thing notice about all of them? Anybody want to jump in, what do you think? Ding, ding, ding!

[...] Bill, I’m going to give you this one.

BILL BURTON, Senior Strategist, Priorities USA Action & Former White House Deputy Press Secretary: That photo that’s been so widely talked about, all of the folks in the White House, I mean, I don’t know if you are allowed to say this on TV, but Barack Obama is black.

O’BRIEN: Yes, he is.

Glad someone around here noticed.
