Obama’s Race-Based Spoils System

Why is the color of their skin a “problem” for Barack Obama? As reported here previously, African-Americans are hardly underrepresented in the U.S. government. Though only 12 percent to 13 percent of the U.S. population, blacks hold 18 percent of all federal jobs. African-Americans are 25 percent of the employees at Treasury and Veterans Affairs, 31 percent of State Department employees, 37 percent of the Department of Education, 38 percent of Housing and Urban Development. They are 42 percent of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp., 55 percent of the Government Printing Office, 82 percent of the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency. http://buchanan.org/blog/obamas-race-based-spoils-system-4844
