    Finding the perfect balance between "most qualified" and "generating diversity" is challenging. The points you cite are good ones.

    Which needs to be the priority between the two factors?



    (am still pissed there aren't more white guys in the NBA....)

    Seriously. We could not have known how bad he would be at that.


    How could anyone who has been remotely successful in business be so bad at that?

    Well, there's also the problem of defining "most qualified". "Most qualified" for Trump includes being able to say nice things about him without gagging.

    That's a definite impediment to recognizing qualifications in the wider population.

    So your issue is less with the percentage numbers that the article is highlighting......and more just with the fact that Trump isn't very good at this President thingy.

    I can concur with that.



    And the reality is that "most qualified" is certainly a very subjective term.

    The longer this ass (and White Nationalists like him) are running this country, the farther the divide.
    Uprisings will not be at the fault of minorities. It will be Trump's doing.

    And liberals can't do a damn thing to stop it, can they?
