Again, in context he wasn’t saying that.

OK. Let’s move on.

It was in that regard that you were challenged and in that regard that you (still) failed to respond.

I have indeed. If I need a background related skill, it is most likely that I will find that skill in those with that background. That’s relatively simple and not in the least controversial.

It is my thesis that you cannot articulate a justification for the assertion that hiring one “race” over the other is inherently “better.”

I never made that assertation. See above.

And yet, that is precisely the impetus behind the demands for “political” diversity.

I oppose political diversity. I’ve made that clear.

I am in general agreement, but I believe it wrong for a company to hire or not to hire based on immutable characteristics having nothing whatever to do with the nature of the tasks to be performed. I don’t believe this is contrary to libertarian philosophy.

I would agree that it traverses any sense of fairness. Whether or not that “fairness” should be codified into law is essentially the libertarian’s debate.
