Colorblind

The Madison School Board meets tonight to reopen the naming process for the new elementary school. More on that later. For now...

Reason #51 why the Madison School Board should name the new school Stephen Colbert Elementary: Stephen Colbert exemplifies the true meaning of diversity.

Last time around, the MMSB chose Vang Pao in the interest of "diversity." But they had it all wrong. Instead of choosing someone who represents a specific ethnic group, they should choose someone who does not even know what ethnic group he belongs to. That describes Colbert, although not because he comes from a grab bag of ancestries. It is a fact that Stephen Colbert cannot see color or gender. He only sees Americans (he also cannot smell flowers). For proof, here is Stephen with his black acquaintance Alan.
