President Trump and the White House's spring 2018 intern class on March 26. (Shealah Craighead/White House)

The latest class of White House interns is a reminder that diversity in government isn’t an issue only at senior levels; it starts at the bottom.

Yeah. There’s a black guy. In a country where 1 out of 7 people is at least half black, and 1 out of 9 is black. There’s also seemingly no Asians, no native Indians, no South Asians, no Hawaiians...

It’s creepy.

It reminds me of Ottawa (shudder)
