Similarly (well, only kinda, but still), the Obama administration recently sacked a USDA bigwig for confessing that she had discriminated against white farmers. It seems to me that this is a bit more complicated than it initially seems.
However, it's this comment that she makes in her defense that bugs me:
I was telling the story of how working with him helped me to see the issue is not about race," she said. "It's about those who have versus those who do not have.
Am I missing something, or is she defending herself by saying that she's not racist anymore because now she's a Marxist?
"Don't shoot--I'm Che!"
