Florida University Hosts Top U.S. Official Who Tells Students America is “Too White”

National Security Advisor Susan Rice recently told graduates at Florida International University that there are “too many white, male, and Yale"
staffers in the Federal intelligence community and they are “a threat to the security of America.
"Too often, our national security workforce has been what former Florida Senator Bob Graham called 'white, male, and Yale,'" Rice stated. "In the halls of power, in the faces of our national security leaders, America is still not fully reflected."
Rice, like her liberal peers who occupy positions of influence and power in the current White House, wants to force the government and companies to hire anyone but whites so there is what they call “demographic parity” throughout all governmental agencies. Structuring this demand as a warning that American lives are in danger from perceived international threats Rice and others broaden their to say that both diversity and lives are at stake,
"I’m not talking about a human resources issue," she stressed. "I’m highlighting a national security imperative."
It stretches credulity that a top official who essentially say that hiring someone with the right qualifications isn't as important as their skin color for the Obama administration. 
Rice went on to describe several potential scenarios that she says illustrates where and why this representational diversity will make all the difference in diplomacy:
"Moreover, we want our national security leaders to reflect America’s best self to the world and inspire others to follow our example. Not by preaching pluralism and tolerance, but by practicing it. Think of the LGBT person in Bangladesh who knows that someone at the American embassy understands who she is. Think of the Iraqi soldier, learning to fight alongside Iraqis from other religious sects, who takes inspiration from America’s own multi-ethnic force. Think of young Haitians drawn to converse with a Foreign Service officer who has dreadlocks like their own—or our Ambassador to India, Richard Verma, showered with rose petals when he visits his grandmother’s ancestral home in Punjab. That is how we build bridges and deepen partnerships in an increasingly globalized world."
Besides, she added, having too many whites are in the same room making decisions together means they all think too much alike and that limits the outcome of important issues:
"By now, we should all know the dangers of 'groupthink,' where folks who are alike often think alike. By contrast, groups comprised of different people tend to question one another’s assumptions, draw on divergent perspectives and experiences, and yield better outcomes."
To her critics speaking out after her academic address, Rice just doesn't believe in leading by example.
“The Obama administration is overloaded with the collective voices of the left and that makes it the very definition of groupthink,” said a graduate student who asked to be identified only as Richard for fear of reprisals.
“Universities today are not really open to diverse viewpoints, the far left has usurped freedom of speech and seeks to discredit and disenfranchise – sometimes even fire – anyone who speaks from a moderate or conservative platform,” elaborated “Richard.”
While President Obama says that "pluralism and tolerance," as Rice indicated, are the true values and pursuits above all else, there is less diversity in this Administration than prior ones and Obama’s relentless push to have his version of “diversity” accepted by the rest of America has led to widespread disdain for his leadership. Obama has pushed to punish law enforcement for what he says are “racist policies,” has supported sometimes violent marches in the streets saying they are “necessary” to call attention to inequality in America and has called for universal acceptance of Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay and Transgender communities even using the Justice Department to punish States that reject the admittance of LBFT’s into restrooms and social clubs where they have been traditionally restricted by gender.
“It is only common sense for a man to use a man’s bathroom and if the person has a penis, he’s a man and parents don’t want these types in bathrooms and showers with their sons and daughters and they should have that right, but Obama’s Department of Justice uses its heavy legal hand to force these results on Americans,” says Richard.
Rice, in her speech said failure to achieve Obama’s equality objectives means we will be handicapped as a nation.
"Without tapping into America’s full range of races, religions, ethnicities, language skills, and social and economic experiences, we’re leading in a complex world with one hand tied behind our back."
The debate rages and many feel how most Americans view this issue will have a large impact on who is elected the next President of the U.S. Clinton favors a continuation of most of Obama’s social policies, while Donald Trump has made it clear he will stop or reverse what he calls a “dangerous precedent and misuse of Federal power.”
