About 50% Of Joe Biden's Transition Team Composed Of "People Of Colour" by emkz: 11:51am On Nov 16
As President-elect Joe Biden prepares to take office in January, nearly half of the transition team laying the groundwork for his administration is made up of people of color, and women are in the majority.

Forty-six percent of the transition staff are people of color, according to new diversity data of the transition team provided to CNN, and 41% of the senior staff are people of color. The majority of transition staff -- 52% -- are women, and 53% of the senior staff are women.
The new diversity figures come as Biden is set to announce his Cabinet picks and senior staff for the White House in the coming weeks -- one of the first tests of his campaign pledge to build an administration that will "look like America."

Biden's first major step toward diversity in his administration came when he selected Kamala Harris, a Black and South Asian woman, as his vice president. In his first staffing announcement, Biden chose a White man and longtime adviser -- Ron Klain -- as his chief of staff for the White House.
The transition team's diversity also extends to its advisory board -- where 43% are people of color and 52% are women. Nine of the 13 members of Biden's Covid-19 advisory board are people of color and five of the members are women, according to the data.

CNN acting the script given them since decision was made to move against Trump.

Maybe it escaped your eyes, but sometimes in early February when USA was just registering its first coronavirus case, a Nairalnder made a comment that Trump will lose reelection because of Coronavirus.

I dismissed it then because I thought America might not be as hard hit as it presently is but I guess I was wrong.

There are many secret agents here on this forum who are privy to so many classified information and I'm sure that guy was aware of something we didn't know.

Again, I'm of the view that Pfizer deliberately delayed announcement of their vaccine to make sure Trump loses. Or why did they make the announcement just barely one week after the elections.

The forces against Trump prepared for him long ago. And these guys are not just after Trump, they are after something more.

"I am not down with this description "people of colour". It is derogatory IMV. So the people who are describing others as people of colour are not people of colour themselves? Same people who pronounce Iran as Hi-ran and Iraq as Hi-raq instead of Hee-ran and Hee-raq, respectively. And I do not believe "people of colour" should be given jobs because they are "people of colour", but given jobs because they are the best for the jobs. And I certainly don't expect CNN to make any news of it, it makes it seem as though they are being done a favour. I am not a person if colour, I am a person: I will treat you as a human being because that is what you are. Your skin is something you'd discard at death and is not of prime imporance."

it doesn't mean anything

The more they try to create diversity instead of merit, the more disaster they create.

The more they try to please everyone, the more they please no one and create lot of conflict.

Diversity is a scam.
