Dem senators threaten to block Biden nominees over lack of Asian representation

Miffed by the lack of Asian Americans in President Biden’s cabinet, senators Tammy Duckworth (D-Illinois) and Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) have vowed not to vote any White House picks who aren’t of Asian descent or from the Pacific islands. Talking to reporters, Duckworth said, ’There’s not a single AAPI in a cabinet position. That’s unacceptable.’ Hirono too said she won’t vote ’non-diverse’ nominees.

This is what happens when you play identity politics, it's never enough, once you play the game of identity politics their is no going back and your expected to keep playing the game for everything, and the people you think your making happy with start turing on you when you don't give them what they want every single time.

I had to google AAPI. The list grows longer by the day...is there a guidebook for all the identity groups? I cant keep up.

It is just baffling that the woman is overtly racist, in seeking clear cut racial discrimination in hiring for a government position, yet believes she is doing something virtuous.

I think the point she is making is that people already pick people because of race. For instance, Asian Americans academically and extracurricularly outperform every other ethnicity, yet they are not picked for powerful positions. Doesn't that seem odd?

I am surprised no progressive has questioned the “white” house and either painted it - or erased the words from history/future. ?

It is a shame that not a single Asian, that is what America diversity is all about be it republican or democrat .. what not America declare they are pro white country, so every nation can set the right expectations they will not be treated equal, either you bow down to them or you will be systematically sanctioned one way or another with other white nations... every non white nations know hypocrisy in play.

Stupid identity politics. Hire actual progressives. Mcconnell's wife is asian, would hiring her be progressive or help asian communities?

Sounds like everyone should take a DNA test so they can see who is the most racially diverse. Or does self-identification count, ala Elizabeth Warren?

So...."The Most Diverse Cabinet in History" isn't diverse enough. Also, anti-Facist, Racial Justice Warriors are choosing top government officials racially. 🤡🌍

Here's a novel thought, how about choosing whomever is the most qualified to do the job.

Wtf, that is pure racism right there! People should be hired based on their qualifications, NOT their ethnicity/race/skin color - this goes ALL ways!

Wow, isn't this racist on its own accord? I'm not claiming that racism doesn't exist nor am I claiming there aren't issues to solve, but this seems to push equality of outcome not opportunity. That whole concept I can't get behind, as it demotes the importance of skills and talents in order to promote some mysterious undefined quota.
