For saying this to the press


“We also recruit at Harvard, Yale and Princeton, but I do find the conservative element (at Duke) attractive. It’s easier for us to relate certain topics (here) than with some guy with dreadlocks and a purple tie-dyed shirt, at least when it comes to the global war on terror.”

I think everyone quick to assume that there was some racial slight meant since most people associate dreadlocks with black people. I think a more nuanced reading would show that he was saying that a more conservative individual from say a Duke University...rather than some hippie dude (dreadlocks and purple tie-dye shirt).

I personally read the dreadlocks and tied dye shirt as a reference to a hippie/ultra-liberal. The position he cited stinks but I don't see what he should 'get in trouble' about...unless thery were actually discriminating against those who didn't share their views.

well suppose this dreadlocks hippie also attended Duke. I didnt take it racialy but more that he was judging people based on their apperance.

.........also there was this black fella dat de agency hired to be a analyst but when he started working they did not like his appearance and tried to get him fired becuz he wore a huge afro and his look was a bit shabby. Nethertheless they were unable to get him fired becuz he was the best analyst in his whole office. So we cannot sleep on people just becuz of their looks. I think that is what the Director is trying to enforce in HR.

then it would just disprove his assumption about the type of recruits one would find at Duke...not necessarily get him in trouble. Now before somebody come up in here with limited understanding, I ent saying mankind innocent of bias or nutten like that, all I saying is that it seems to me that folks interpreting his comments as having some racial undertone. I could be wrong though...
