Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The FBI -- `Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity' -- Still Working on Diversity
... lacking personal skills ...
The white agent said that for years he had been unable to adequately handle the questions he faced when recruiting at [Historically Black Colleges, HBCUs] -- questions Talley would soon face himself.

Did the FBI kill civil rights leaders?

Did the bureau infect African Americans with diseases?

In reading this I am reminded of Kenneth Clark's interview with James Baldwin back in '63. This was shortly after Rbt. Kennedy famously convened a meet'n'greet of civil rights celebrity activists in Harlem; memoirs of this are only in books. (CThere were four Clark segments on youtube, I think.) Baldwin recalled gentrification rising in San Francisco around that time. He called it "Negro removal" and expressed his sympathy for cynicism among black youth to the effect, para. they've got no reason to be invested in this country.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
