Ridiculous lead story and an even more insane quote

Lead -- lead!! -- story yesterday at Delaware Online.com: Racial diversity down in Delaware state government.

Reaction of typical "progressives": "My God!! We gotta do something!"
Reaction of normal people: "OK. So? Isn't competence more important than skin tone?"

Nuttiest and completely-devoid-of-reality comment of the article: "Racism exists in epidemic proportions in state government," said Silvester Beaman, president of the Interdenominational Ministers Action Council.

*Yawn*

Sooo....what exactly is the "correct" racial balance? Is it 50/50? What percent should be male vs. female? What about sexual orientation? If we're using demographic data, the current balance for black vs. white is 68.9% white and 21.4% black. It seems to me that's pretty close to the numbers cited in the article.
