Another Obama Czar Heard From: “Good White People” Edition


Why does the FCC have a “chief diversity officer,” and, even if there’s a good reason for that, why is he this guy?

Media Research Center has the goods on Mark “Good White People Have to Step Down” Lloyd:

Lloyd yesterday said “I am not at the FCC to remove anybody, whatever their color, from power,” and that we were incorrect in intimating that it might be something he’d want to do.  What we’d done was post audio of Lloyd saying:

“Because we have really, truly good white people in important positions. And the fact of the matter is that there are a limited number of those positions. And unless we are conscious of the need to have more people of color, gays, other people in those positions we will not change the problem. We’re in a position where you have to say who is going to step down so someone else can have power.”

Again, we were not exaggerating or distorting Lloyd, merely quoting him.

Do read the whole thing: His praise of Hugo Chavez, his scoffing at the First Amendment. Where does Obama find these characters? Did he meet them in church, or what?
