Pretzel Logic

The New Orleans DA is found guilty of discrimination after firing 43 employees and replacing them with blacks. The case seemed pretty pat, and the result bore that out, but the interesting part was his defense:

Jordan acknowledged he wanted to make the office more reflective of the city's racial makeup, but denied he fired whites just because they are white. In fact, he said, he did not know the race of the people fired.

If he didn't know the race of the people fired, how would he have originally concluded that the office didn't reflect the city's makeup?
