Great Moments in Minority Outreach

Mike has been a software engineer far longer than he would like to admit. He has strong opinions on baseball, software, science fiction, comedy, contract bridge, and European history, any of which he's willing to share with almost no prompting whatsoever.

      I think Mike may suspect that the good Congressman’s comments were in some way connected to the skin color of the people he was addressing. I’m skeptical, myself. I’m sure that such a thing could easily have happened to some dude named Sam Tate or what have you.Report

      Well, the title is basically sarcastic in that what the good Congressmen did was, in fact, the opposite of minority outreach.

      One might say that the good Congressmen played to type, as it were.Report
