    25 Percent of Obama’s Top Officials Are Non-White

    About half of the top decision makers in the Obama administration are white men, according to a survey conducted by National Journal magazine. That figure is slightly lower than it was when President Bush was in office.

    “Fifty-two percent of the top Obama officials are white males, compared with 59 percent at the start of the Bush administration and 60 percent at the start of Bush’s second term,” the magazine reports.

    Similar shifts in the direction of increased diversity have taken place among other demographic groups. “Women account for 34 percent of Obama’s top officials, compared with 26 percent at the start of Bush’s first term,” the Journal notes. “Racial minorities account for 25 percent of Obama’s top officials, compared with 20 percent at the beginning of the Bush administration.”

    The magazine gathered the information for the 366 top officials in the White House and federal agencies during a series of interviews for biographical sketches.

    Well what do you expect? The competence of politicians doesn't matter anymore, as long as there is diversity, anyone will do.

    Because he is a racial minority, Obama has sympathising feelings for his own category. But I'm agreeing it must be based on competence. Diversity for the sake of diversity is biased.
