Juliet Eilperin Compelled To Quote A Black Environmentalist
In this post-racial era, "The Washington Post" environment reporter Juliet Eilperin, left, is finally compelled to quote a black person because Lisa Jackson will be the new EPA administrator. Imagine that. Fate does have a sense of humor. We just noticed how it jumped out at us when Eilperin quoted President-Elect Barack Obama's EPA Adminstrator-designee Lisa Jackson.
Go back and check the record if you think we are just being 'overly racially sensitive.' This is not the first time we have pointed out Ms. Eilperin's proclivity for not quoting blacks on environmental and energy issues. Now, it appears, she has no choice. Too funny. Barack Obama is already making a difference.
