Irony or reverse prejudice?
New York – President George W. Bush’s cabinet is more diverse than National Public Radio, Tavis Smiley tells TIME in an exclusive interview. “It is ironic that a Republican President has an Administration that is more inclusive and more diverse than a so-called liberal-media-élite network,” Smiley says.Why is this "ironic"? It appears to me that the situation is rather seen through the eyes of a racist and political bigot than an example of "irony". The saddest part is that even the Instapundit himself took the racism and bigotry seriously instead of as a kneejerk narrative.
