    I remember when I was at a big NY law firm in the late 90s and we started having mandatory, 3-4 hour "diversity training" I enjoyed wondering aloud why we needed so much time to learn that parties from different states could go to federal court.

    Gannett used to love all sorts of diversity propaganda meetings and mainstreaming initiatives. Of course, reporters at my paper were told that it was rude to flat-out ask sources if they were a minority over the phone, but they were told to try to find mysterious ways to get the info out of the source.

    Mainstreaming. A total waste of time.

    The White House rushed Tuesday to allay concerns raised by some civil rights groups about Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan and the hiring record of Harvard Law School when she was dean.


    While Kagan led the school from 2003 to 2009, 29 faculty members were hired: Twenty-eight were white, and one was Asian American.

    Surprised that they would bring this up now at such a critical juncture in her nomination process

    Ruth Bader Ginseburg was on the D.C. Circuit for 13 years. She had never had a single African-American law clerk, intern, or secretary. Out of 57 employees, not one was African-American.
