Your editorial opined "Election by council district makes a lot of sense, and should go a long way toward making the board more diverse in its racial and ethnic makeup. While no Howard council district has a 'minority majority,' at least two of them can claim significant minority populations."
Please inform your readers what the "right" makeup is for a board to improve its "racial and ethnic makeup." Please explain how melanin, skin pigment or ethnicity makes one qualified to represent another person with a similar genetic code. Do all (fill in the blank here with your desired racial or ethic group) think alike?
