Tokenism is killing liberalism

Don Surber  "Introduced in 1959, the Barbie doll took off like a rocket in sales. Some black people complained about not having a black Barbie. So Mattel injected brown plastic into the mold, and you had a doll with Caucasian looks and brown skin.
"The New York Times hired Sarah Jeong for its editorial board because she is of Asian ancestry. That she is a racist sexist who is not talented enough to write a grocery list mattered not. She is the board's token Asian Barbie. She thinks just like the rest of the members. Only her skin is different.
"While she complains about white privilege, she sits on the board of the Newspaper of White Privilege Record.
"The left has pushed diversity for decades. Now it pays the price.
"Their goal is the Cabinet That Looks Like America, and not the Cabinet That Gets Things Done." . . .

. . . 
"No more. It went out of its way to hire people based on the color of their skin, and not the content of their character. Elizabeth Warren got her job not because she was a top-notched law professor but because they thought she was an Indian.
"Mattel solved its problem by creating a mold for a doll with African-American features.
"In politics, President Trump broke the mold of tokenism."
