Affirmative Action Gone Mad!

Here's a case study of affirmative action gone mad! New Orlean's first black attorney-general fired 43 whites when he took office and replace them with blacks.
Eight days after taking office, Mr. Jordan fired 53 of 77 white nonlawyers in his office - investigators, clerks, child-support enforcement workers and the like - and replaced them with blacks.
Why did he do it?
Mr. Jordan has acknowledged that he wanted to make the office more reflective of the city's racial makeup, but he denied that he had fired whites just because of their race. In fact, he said, he had not known the race of the people fired.
Yeah, sure.
