LR: affirmative action report

Posted By on Tue, Jul 8, 2008 at 12:32 PM

Will web wonders never cease.

A reader shipped along to me a city of Little Rock spreadsheet compiling the racial and sexual composition of city boards and commissions.

Bottom line: Overwhelmingly white and male. Whiter than maler.

The count is 48 blacks and 215 whites and a smattering of other and 87 women and 176 men and a few men and women of other racial identities.

Study and report.
