Hiring or electing someone just because they are of different color is not a good thing, but a racist thing. I for one do not care what color the person is, but I do care what they do as a manager/President/CEO. Well you get the picture.
Now if you were talking about baseball when Jackie Robinson came in the majors as the first black player, that was a good thing for all involved as he not only excelled at his position he was actual a very good person and would not have intentionally hurt anyone even his opposition.
That is what we did not get when this color barrier was broken in the Whitehouse, what we got was discourse, attacks, defamation, division, crookedness, criminal behaviour, above the law mentality.
