    Why a racial proportion. Should be based upon the person, should it not.

    The person is chosen in accordance with their fame, but the quota has to be set on the racial proportion. We can't be having no straight white heterosexual christian money.

    You believe in racial quotas for this.
    An other areas where you support racial quotas?

    United States Demographics Profile 2014
    white 79.96%, black 12.85%, Asian 4.43%, Amerindian and Alaska native 0.97%, native Hawaiian and other Pacific islander 0.18%, two or more races 1.61% (July 2007 estimate)
    note: a separate listing for Hispanic is not included because the US Census Bureau considers Hispanic to mean persons of Spanish/Hispanic/Latino origin including those of Mexican, Cuban, Puerto Rican, Dominican Republic, Spanish, and Central or South American origin living in the US who may be of any race or ethnic group (white, black, Asian, etc.); about 15.1% of the total US population is Hispanic
    So white approx 80 - Approx 13 % black - Approx 15 % Hispanic

    So Native Americans, making up under 1 % would be at the bottom of the woodpile.

    As I indicated, we can look for two-fers. Obama is a black-white, kenyan-Hawaiian, Muslim-Christian and possibly gay depending on which stories you believe. He is like a 7-fer

    Kerist, don't take this the wrong way, but sounds like terms SA used under apartheid.
    I had no idea of what 2 two-fer-three fers meant.

    It means people who fulfil more than one category. For instance, under affirmative action, if a company needs to hire more blacks and women, they look for a black woman because she satisfies both requirements.
