Feds still proudly driving out whites from employment as passenger screeners at airports. From the Transportation Security Administration site:

With less than 10 months to recruit an entirely new type of federal airport security work force, it is rewarding to report that as of Nov. 1, some 22 percent of TSA's screeners are African-American, a number twice that of the current civilian work force population. While 8 percent of the American work force is Hispanic, TSA's work force is already 12 percent Hispanic. Our numbers for hiring Native Americans reflect the labor force. Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders account for 4 percent of our screeners, compared with 2.8 percent of the civilian work force. Although whites make up 77.9 percent of the work force nationally, only 56 percent of TSA's screener work force is white. Minorities make up 41 percent of TSA's screener work force.

On Oct. 21, the last time we visited TSA, whites had an alarmingly high 58% share of all jobs. Though last week's 56% remains a concern, at least the trend line is down.

We should have asked DOT Secretary Norman Mineta to run for re-election.
