U.S. Senator James Webb’s column in the Wall St. Journal entitledDiversity and the Myth of White Privilege” argues that it is time to end government’s racial discrimination because you cannot solve the problems caused by discrimination by discriminating.  His article ends:

“Our government should be in the business of enabling opportunity for all, not in picking winners. It can do so by ensuring that artificial distinctions such as race do not determine outcomes.  Memo to my fellow politicians: Drop the Procrustean policies and allow harmony to invade the public mindset. Fairness will happen, and bitterness will fade away.”
