    Sigh. You don't read well do you. So many people who post ad hominem don't. Oh well. Too bad for you.

    Those who DO read well will see that the Heritage Foundation does a really good job recruiting a broad cross section of Americana onto their team. I would not see any need for the NAACP to be racially diverse, however, given the purpose and mission of that organization.

    What's racist about saying that one race is incapable of equaling the other without special benefits?

    Membership numbers count. Last time I looked, the NAACP was a political organization.

    Any program that awards any special treatment do to skin color is government sponsored racism.

    So how do you correct hundreds of years of government sponsored enslavement, torture, rape, and psychological abuse that was directed against blacks without having programs that are specifically designed to give blacks a boost to compensate for the extreme obstacles that were put in their path?

    Make sure they have the same standings in the law and the laws are evenly applied to everyone regardless of race.
