Court orders firm to use minority lawyers

Is it really necessary to have absolute representation in terms of race and gender? This is why I love the America of conservatives and not the new progressive America that liberals are making it into – in my America, I am valued as a citizen apart from my race, and my views are judged absolutely according to one standard. In fact, aren’t those supporting minority representation  implicitly stating that there’s something essentially different about minorities if we can’t represent each other even in a law case?! My gorge rises at it.
