Another needless government job

BILINGUAL SPANISH YOUTH LIBRARIAN
$44,056.80 - $54,204.48 annually

Multnomah County Library is seeking applicants for Bilingual Spanish Youth Librarian positions...
...We are seeking candidates from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds to enhance service to our multicultural community....
...The best candidate will be able to provide culturally appropriate services to Latino youth and families, in addition to serving all users and potential library users in their assigned community....

Doesn't hiring a worker to give special service to just one race seem a little, well, racist? Do the "Latino youth" have their own "culturaly sensitive" drinking fountain? Is this what that Multnomah County tax is for?

This is indeed another example of a wasteful public position. Love your blog - heard about it from the Lars show. You can bet I'll be a regular visitor now.
