Dem Senator turns on the diversity shakedown

Clarice Feldman
In the Wall Street Journal Democrat Senator James Webb attacks both the basis for "diversity" racial preferences and its negative impact, indicating it's time to end these programs.   

He's proven himself a political opportunist. Talking a conservative game to his constituents but voting lockstep with his party's far left agenda. So, it is clear that he sees himself in some political trouble and recognizes this issue resonates with many voters in his state.

But his statement is important as it is rare. Like Nixon going to China, without a Dem leading this charge--for the obvious reason--there will be no change unless Dems are in on it. Maybe unwittingly this administration will prove to be useful, forcing Americans to realize that the racial spoils system is corrupt, dishonest and dangerous, It has already been giving us numerous "teachable moments" about big government.
