While we're on the subject of obnoxious race-mongering, check out this article that was on the Merc's home page today:


Diversity lags in S.J.'s top posts
CITY'S SENIOR-LEVEL STAFF POSITIONS REMAIN LARGELY WHITE
By Edwin Garcia
Mercury News

San Jose touts itself as a diverse place to live and work, becoming one of the first cities in the nation without a racial or ethnic majority. But you wouldn't know it by looking at the top officials hired to run city government, who remain overwhelmingly white.


It's almost a daily event for the Merc to print some handwringing article about insufficient multiculturalism, which 99% of the readership could care less about. Today's homage to diversity was well-sourced, in that it allowed you to see for yourself just how "overwhelmingly white" the council was. The Merc published mug shots of all the top San Jose city officials.

I'm surprised there wasn't a Flash application that allowed you to turn the officials black or Asian.
