Diversity Thursday II: Electric Boogaloo

Ahhhh, the wonderful world of bigotry. This time from one-time Clinton Cabinet member Robert Reich --- and now an economic advisor for President Obama.
I am concerned, as I’m sure many of you are, that these jobs not simply go to high-skilled people who are already professionals or to white male construction workers. … I have nothing against white male construction workers. I’m just saying that there are a lot of other people who have needs as well. … Criteria can be set so that the money does go to others, the long term unemployed minorities, women, people who are not necessarily construction workers or high-skilled professionals.
Yes; some Americans are more equal than others, you see.

Don't say you weren't warned - it's all about the content of your character; right?.

Hat tip Cap'n Ed.
UPDATE: Michelle and Neil have a few words on the subject.
