Obtenebrating Obama...

Procol Harum eat your heart out. The White House wasn't recoloured but there's more ethnic and diversity problems than you might think in the Obama camp: his "team is looking to hire more African-Americans, a search that has stirred a debate among black Democrats about Obama’s record on diversity and its implications for his reelection". The more cynical amongst us would agree that 'the president and his aides have focused their attention on hiring more African-Americans because they are worried about black turnout on Election Day.' It's the incredibly non-diverse crowd of naive looking trendy, young whites that you can see in the picture that has caused the unseemly rush to get a few black faces involved; the BBC's utterly Obama-obsessed Mark Mardell could have mentioned that...but he didn't. Click on image to see more at Aces of Spades (no, I didn't make that up, honestly!) that earlier this month also listed the Top Ten Things Almost As White As Obama's Campaign HQ Staff...the 450 or so comments add a few more ideas!
