The city of Portland is sending 16 white male employees and managers, including Mayor Charlie Hales and Police Chief Mike Reese, to a three-day diversity training conference at a Mt. Hood-area resort this week.

The training, run by the company White Men as Full Diversity Partners, costs $56,000 and will be funded in part by Hales' office and the Portland Police Bureau.

According to Hales' office, the training focuses on eliminating racism, sexism and homophobia in organizations.

Yes, sending only the white males is racist and sexist.

Yes there are blacks who are racist. Listen to Sharpton, or Jackson, or Farrakhan some time.
