When the late, great Rodney Dangerfield groused “I don’t get no respect,” the comedian had no idea that in the Obama age the catchphrase would apply to ALL white males.

While giving the commencement address at Florida International University earlier this month, National Security Adviser Susan Rice told graduates that too many white males make America less safe.

In particular, “white, male, and Yale” national security staffers, according to Truth Revolt.

“Too often, our national security workforce has been what former Florida Senator Bob Graham called ‘white, male, and Yale,'” Rice said. “In the halls of power, in the faces of our national security leaders, America is still not fully reflected.”

Keep in mind that U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power, Secretary of State John Kerry and Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter — all Obama administration officials — are white Yale graduates.

What’s even more noteworthy is that with the myth of “white privilege” being so prevalent today, white males can be so readily disparaged and no one bats an eye.

In Rice’s eye, diversity will save lives.

“I’m not talking about a human resources issue,” Rice emphasized. “I’m highlighting a national security imperative.”

Ironically, the same liberals who all but invented “group think” are now lecturing America that too many white people in the same room will result in constricted thought.

“By now, we should all know the dangers of ‘group think,’ where folks who are alike often think alike,” Rice told graduates, who likely did not catch on to her stereotyping an entire race of people. “By contrast, groups comprised of different people tend to question one another’s assumptions, draw on divergent perspectives and experiences, and yield better outcomes.”
