Jesse Jackson shakes down Silicon Valley to hire minorities: ‘Too many Asians and Jews’

Civil rights scammer Jesse Jackson is taking his shakedown shtick to Silicon Valley.

Emboldened by the shocking, shocking! news that  the hi-tech giants of the Information Age are overwhelmingly men who are white or Asian, Jackson told the USA Today editorial board Monday “the government has a role to play” in forcing the companies into line with what Jackson think they should look like.

In the Age of Obama, that means the strong-arm of the law, in the form of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Sane people shrugged. The NBA is overwhelmingly black, a lot of lawyers are Jews and elementary-school teachers are almost entirely women. So what?

Liberals and the media greeted the news with hand-wringing headlines like this one from PBS: “Google finally discloses its diversity record, and it’s not good.” (“Not good”? Says who?)
