White House’s Susan Rice: U.S. national security agencies are too white

"In a White House often accused of being stacked with loyalists, President Obama’s national security adviser said Wednesday there are too many white people in key government posts, endangering national security because they think alike.
"Speaking at Florida International University’s commencement, Susan E. Rice, who is black, said a diversified government workforce is more likely to yield “better outcomes” than a predominantly white one.
"Referring to criticism that the U.S. national security workforce is “white, male and Yale,” Ms. Rice told the graduates, “In the halls of power, in the faces of our national security leaders, America is still not fully reflected.' ” . . .
So the pressure will be to lower qualification standards to increase the number of many of the right ethnic group. This was done long ago in the *Rampart Division of the LA Police Department with the result that many problems resulted with arrests and convictions.
*Ann Coulter comments at length on this issue.
"In a massive, detailed 2000 study of the effect of court-ordered affirmative action plans on police departments, economist John Lott found that the more minorities on a police force, the higher the rates of murder, manslaughter, violent crime, robbery and aggravated assault will be. Violent crime increased by a minimum of 3.3 percent every year after affirmative action policies went into effect -- and the spike in crime was highest in black neighborhoods. 

"The problem was not with black cops, Lott's study showed, but rather with the lowering of standards across the board, resulting in less-qualified officers of every race. To get more of MSNBC's "voices of oppression" on police forces, requirements are reduced for all recruits. (Just as quality declined at MSNBC when "voices of oppression" had to be added to their lineup.) 

"We end up with cops who are criminals, the Rampart scandal of the 1990s and great movies like "Training Day." . . . 
Liberals cannot be made to learn from history. TD
