Affirmative Action for dolls...

You've heard about the dread Institutionalized Racism, which is well-known to be the only reason that certain minorities do not shoot ahead...(And I guess one would also have to surmise, is why certain other minorities do better than the majority race?) Finally, someone, or rather some wise government agency, is going to stamp this monster out! Donald Sensing writes:

...My wife is the director of a preschool and pre-Kindergarten run by a local United Methodist Church (not mine). Every year her school is inspected by the state's regulatory and licensing agencies. If the school does not pass the inspections, it can be closed by the state. There are a lot of different inspections at the school year's beginning.

Please note that this is a private pre-school.

Today she went shopping in preparation for an inspection coming up this week. It was for a doll. She told me that the state licensing agency requires that her school have three dolls of at least two different races.

Of course the school may have more than three dolls, but it may not violate the "two races per three dolls" ratio...

Do Space-Alien dolls count?
