Hiring Lifeguards Who Can’t Swim in the Name of Diversity

Following the election of Barack Hussein Obama, it is no longer possible to take Affirmative Action to new extremes of stupidity — but that doesn’t mean moonbats won’t try:

To diversify the lifeguard force, Phoenix will spend thousands of dollars to recruit minorities even if they’re not strong swimmers, according to an official quoted in a news report. Blacks, Latinos and Asians who may not necessarily qualify can still get hired, says the city official who adds that “we will work with you in your swimming abilities.”

Most of the kids splashing around amid bobbing turds and spreading yellow clouds in Phoenix’s 29 public pools are of the politically favored black and blown persuasions, whereas most of the lifeguards are white, since whites tend to be better at swimming — or to put it in cultural Marxist terms,

In Phoenix public pool lifeguards have traditionally come from “more affluent parts of town” where schools have swim teams.

Fortunately our wise rulers have a simple solution to this intolerable state of affairs: hire nonwhites regardless of qualifications.

If only this anti-white lunacy were limited to Phoenix swimming pools:

Under President Obama we have seen a lot of this at the federal level through a variety of specially-designed government programs that give ethnic minorities special treatment at all federal agencies as well as medical and agricultural fields, among others.

Earlier this year the administration made history by hiring the government’s first “Chief Officer for Scientific Workforce Diversity” to mastermind a multi-million-dollar effort that boosts the number of minorities in biomedical research…

Scientific discoveries don’t matter in and of themselves; what matters is that they be made by nonwhites — or rather, that nonwhites be paid to pretend to make them, just as nonwhites will be paid to pretend to save drowning children at public pools.
