    What this doesn’t show us are pictures of the white people who are actually doing the real work.

    • IstvanIN

      County agents have to actually know something.

      Reminds me of “group work” at school.

      This is why our government civil service is a joke.

    • Yale2001

      Your right. Give blacks a big title and a suit or they will cry to the NAACP.

  • Yvonne Howerton, director, Acquisitions Management Division. looks like she acquisitioned herself a very comfortable (and expensive) chair. Also looks like she procured one for Ezekiel Dennison, Jr., director, Management Services Division

    First thing to do now that you are management at the USDA is to pick out “you” desk chair.

    Department of Agriculture? These five do not look like farmers to me. I doubt they were ever in a 4-H Club or Future Farmers of America. They look like urban black affirmative action hires, paid six figure salaries because of the color of their skin, not the “content of their brains” (to corrupt an MLK saying). I see the arrogance in their souls written by the smirks on their faces. “Hey guys, we sure beat old whitey at his game, dins we?” These five are the faces of somebody’s government, but not mine. I intend to do all that is legally possible to see that this fake government is one day brought to its knees and its leaders are sent to hell where they belong.

    We are ruled by Voodoo Diversity, so let your terrified racist imagination run wild, you are right.

    But at least for every black in failing upward into “leadership,” a White liberal was pushed aside, giving us something to celebrate.

      Their bosses are White liberals. These people are put in these positions merely as window dressing. Whenever there is a meeting, or a newsletter, or a photo-op these people by their appearance alone exclaim to the world: “See, we ain’t racist, we can all get along, blacks are equal to Whites in abilities, and ain’t diversity grand?”

    They are coming for their 40 acres and a mule!

    Dept.of Agriculture?
    Guess we should start saying goodbye to the food on our table.

    • We said “goodbye” to about $130 billion last year to keep food on the tables of the oxygen-wasters pictured above.

  • me

    It wasn’t long ago these Bantus were considered ‘livestock’, so it kinda makes sense, in a warped sort of way….

    • joesolargenius

      These Black people featured in this article were never considered livestock and in fact have had far more privileges than you or I ever will, these are the spoiled brats of America whom probably went to a Black College which sold them a degree so they could take advantage of affirmative action hiring practices !

  • connorhus

    And then we wonder how cases like Pigford became so big and with such huge undeserved payouts.

  • How ’bout that, obsolete farm equipment is managing the Agriculture Department.

  • OhWow

    Liberal logic:

    All black staff = diverse
    All asian staff = diverse
    All hispanic staff = diverse
    All indian staff = diverse

    • Nick A Siggers

      Bill Clinton, Anthony Weiner, Dick Morris, Teddy Kennedy, Bob Filner, agree – All Asian staff = happy ending!

  • IKantunderstand

    WHOOWHOO. Chugchugchugclicketyclackclicketyclack. Next stops:Harare,Pretoria,Johannesburg. Agricultural brainstormin’.

  • Daniel Schmuhl

    Pretty much a big useless bureaucracy that will continue to expand and provide jobs to blacks with no real skills.

    • I would love to see an intelligent articulate White get an internship in an all black upper-level management office in government, and then write about it truthfully – instead of trying to pursue a gub’mint career.

      A White female would have oodles of stories to tell about the sexual comments from black males. A White male could tell us how Excel was required but none of the management could figure out how C1=A1+B1 (4=2+2). Both could discuss how nail appointments (for both men and women, both manis and pedis on gov issued credit cards) were more important than work. They are getting their reparations people. Most are guilty of malfeasance and yet it will take 30 years to get rid of all of them – after Eric Holder and Obama.

  • Spartacus

    You can tell how smart they are just by looking at their faces .

  • JackKrak

    Old MacDonald had a farm – and then lost it when he had to deal with these people….

  • Yale2001

    O.K. we are now just handing out positions. Remember when it was truly the best and most qualified man/woman for the job. Remember when only the best and brightest got into highly intellectual jobs. So hard to watch a small minority of American’s absolutely bring America to it’s knees.

  • Biff_Maliboo

    What an honest-looking bunch.

  • WR_the_realist

    Did anyone else try to read the newsletter? The mind fog there is all too typical of what federal bureaucracies disgorge every day. Even the ones run by white people. The real purpose of government is to provide make work jobs for people who can’t hack the private sector.

  • shmo123

    The titles alone say it all. What, for example, does the “Administrator for Management” do? I’ll bet he doesn’t even know, but it sounds good. How about the “Acquisitions Management Division”? Buy pens and pencils? These people are nothing but bureaucratic bench warmers, with made up jobs, and official sounding titles to go with them.
