Reich Argues against Stimulus Money to "White Males" and "Skilled Professionals"

(Via Michelle Malkin) Speaking as one of those "high-skilled (white male) persons who are already professionals"--who happens to be out of work and looking for a way to keep us fed and a roof over our heads, as a result of the damage that rampant leftist-ideology driven preference-based lending policies and forced energy dependence have done to the world economy--I am livid about this:

Partial transcript:

REICH: …”I am concerned, as I’m sure many of you are, that these jobs not simply go to high-skilled people who are already professionals or to white male construction workers…I have nothing against white male construction workers, I’m just saying there are other people who have needs as well.”

Yes, God forbid the jobs go to people with track records and experience. God forbid we judge stimulus recipients on the content of their resumes as opposed to the color of their skin.

There are other people who have needs as well.

Indeed. They didn't seem to have an issue throwing away billions of dollars to help the Bank of America... last time I checked there were "white professionals" working there.

Welcome to the Animal Farm.
