'...repackaged in the form of race preferences ... and, one presumes, workers of color in every workplace. ...' Since government-mandated racial quotas have become the pc norm, it's about time the government stepped in to ensure that all races are proportionately represented in ALL professional sports. We need more whites in the NFL and the NBA and more hispanics and blacks in the NHL. Free market be damned. What we need is diversity! OK, let's demand THAT.

There is an uplifting American feel about a university, a workplace or a neighborhood brimming with people of different races. It is the product of a nation assembled of people from everywhere else. From many places, one people.

Other nations have diversity of a sort, but no one can go to France and become French. I cannot go to Brazil and become Brazilian. The diversity of America, an assemblage of skin colors painted with a wide swath of history from immigration to slavery, has become a uniquely beautiful concept.

Leave it to government to screw it up.
