The linked news story (fake news, really) is a month old, but it offers an insight into the minds of the diversity-obsessed journalists today who can only thinly disguise their hatred of white males. I believe the writer of this piece, Matthew Artz is a Jew.
Without justifying why, he apparently thinks that having nonwhite people in the Trump administration should be the President-elect’s first priority.

Trump’s White House: How white will it be?
So far all five of the Trump’s first picks for key White House adviser and cabinet posts have been white men, several of whom have been accused of being racist or anti-Muslim
From the moment Donald Trump first uttered his slogan about “Making America Great Again,” his critics countered that what he really wanted was to return to an era when white men ran the ship of state.
So far the president-elect is doing little to dispel their fears. Trump’s first five picks for key posts are all white males, several of whom are causing chills to run down the spines of civil libertarians.
Multiple news outlets Friday reported that Trump has settled on Alabama GOP Sen. Jeff Sessions, as his pick for attorney general; Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn as his national security advisor; and Rep. Mike Pompeo, a Republican from Kansas, as his CIA director. Those selections come on the heels of Trump announcing that Steve Bannon, executive chairman of the alt-right website Breitbart News, will be his chief strategist, and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus will serve as chief of staff.
The early appointments have already fueled fears that Trump is preparing to stock his administration full of hard-line white male loyalists.
But David Brady, a senior fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institution, said Trump might not pay a political price for doing so. “His supporters are not going to be upset by the fact that he did this,” Brady said. “Those are the people he cares about.”
Pompeo, a former Army officer, is a Tea Party devotee who played a leading role in the House investigation into the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.
Sessions and Flynn, two of Trump’s most devoted allies during the campaign, are the more controversial picks for a president who has been accused of fanning racist and anti-Islamic sentiment.
In 1986, the Republican-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee rejected Sessions’ nomination to a federal judgeship after hearing testimony from former colleagues that he had referred to the NAACP and other civil rights groups as “un-American” and “Communist-inspired,” according to the New York Times. One African-American colleague testified that Sessions referred to him as “boy.”
Flynn, who was fired by President Barack Obama as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, has claimed that Islamic law is spreading in the U.S. On Twitter, he shared fake news stories and wrote, “Fear of Muslims is RATIONAL.”
Trump’s early picks appear to be a break from the precedent set by former President Bill Clinton, who had campaigned on a pledge to assemble a cabinet that “looks like America.” One of Clinton’s first cabinet selections was Donna Shalala to lead the Department of Health and Human Services. He was also insistent on having a female attorney general, although his first two picks had to withdraw their candidacies before Janet Reno got the job.
George W. Bush quickly picked Colin Powell, an African-American, as his secretary of state. He was later succeeded by another early appointee of Bush’s: Stanford Provost Condoleezza Rice, who first served as national security adviser and is also African-American. She later went on to serve as secretary of state.
President Obama’s first official cabinet selections included Hillary Clinton as secretary of state and Eric Holder, who is African-American, as attorney general.
Trump’s predecessors picked neocons and losers.
The people want to win. Trump is picking winners. Doing the opposite of what Clinton, Bush, and Obama did is a good thing.
To put it another way, Trump is hiring on merit, hiring people with a proven track record of success in the private sector. Success in a government bureaucracy is exactly what we don’t want.
