There have been quite a few pieces in the news lately highlighting the overwhelming whiteness of Donald Trump’s cabinet, though most stop just short of addressing the question, “So what?”

CNN noted recently that white males “dominate” Trump’s top cabinet posts, while MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow sounded the alarm that the line of succession to the presidency appears to be 12 white guys.”

Liz Spayd, public editor of the New York Times, noted in her column over the weekend that, while the paper “can be relentless in questioning the diversity at other institutions,” its own newsroom is a sea of “blinding whiteness” — yes, that’s her own description, not ours.

Yes, the newly named team of correspondents who will cover Donald Trump’s mostly white White House is entirely white.

It’s worth noting that pasty white team, as those leaked John Podesta emails revealed, will include self-described “hack” Glenn Thrush and Maggie Haberman, a “friendly journalist” who never disappointed when it came time to “tee up stories” for Team Hillary … so the team’s not just white, but pretty transparent as well.

If the New York Times is truly concerned about diversity, it might consider looking more than just skin deep.

There’s no other explanation possible. The Times obviously is “alt right,” and yet far left at the same time.
