    Sooooo do you have an opinion on this?

    Sounds like a good idea to me to raise awareness on how screwed up it is to select someone based on race and not merit.

    If we're supposed to be a colorblind society, nobody is seeing it - not even in Congress where it's not exactly all white, but does have a GOP majority.

    We should value people in society that want to work -- yet it is not 1950, much less 1650, anymore. In workplaces people will find peers/coworkers of all genders and colors and very few seem to care or, worse, to even be derogatory.

    Having said that, I'm not saying racism doesn't exist, or reverse-racism for that matter. But the PSAs were made in a time when Adam West made pop culture. Times have changed, better in many ways and worse in a few. But we have different problems now. The issues then and now aren't related.
