Diversity Threatened in the NBA

The Minnesota Timberwolves will be fielding a team this year that is only one third black.  That means that the Timberwolves will have a much higher percentage of blacks than the general population, though a far lower percentage of blacks than any other team in the NBA.  And this prospect is quite upsetting to Ron Edwards, identified in a Yahoo sports story as a "longtime Minneapolis civil rights advocate."  According to Edwards, the Timberwolves' decision to field a team that has more white players than Edwards wants to see represents a "nullification of diversity and a reversal of history."  Which tells you all you really need to know about what "diversity" actually means.
