Great Moments in Diversity

In theory:

From the DNC website:

β€œThe DNC is committed to a policy of equal employment opportunity. It is our policy to recruit, hire, train, promote and administer any and all personnel actions without regard to sex, race, age, color, creed, national origin, religion, economic status, sexual orientation, ethnic identity or physical disability, or any other legally protected basis. The DNC will not tolerate any unlawful discrimination and any such conduct is prohibited.” The Democratic Party

From the 2004 Democratic Party National Platform for America:

β€œWe pledge to stand up for our beliefs and rally Americans to our cause. But we recognize that disagreements will remain, and we believe disagreement should not mean disrespect. Members of our party have deeply held and differing views on some matters of conscience and faith. We view diversity of views as a source of strength, and we welcome into our ranks all Americans who seek to build a stronger America. We are committed to resolving our differences in a spirit of civility, hope and mutual respect.
That's the America we believe in.”

Black Caucus: Whites Not Allowed

(H/T - Mark Krikorian @ NRO)

UPDATE: Let's not forget this recent tidbit from Crablaw: Baltimore Examiner: Black Mayoral Candidates to Unite to Prevent White Mayor?

Comments:
I hit another similar theme here a few weeks ago regarding a club of many of Baltimore's black political and business elite.

Perhaps Rep. Cohen saw Revenge of the Nerds, and misapplied the principle.
 
It is our policy to recruit, hire, train, promote and administer any and all personnel actions without regard to sex, race, age, color, creed, national origin, religion, economic status, sexual orientation, ethnic identity or physical disability, or any other legally protected basis.
Yet the Democrats support Affirmative Action which precisely hires, trains, etc.. based on race.
