Delusions can be powerful

Way back in the olden thymes, I was going back and forth with a liberal acquaintance about a topic related to his cult’s recent fixation on diversity. I no longer recall the details of the conversation, but at some point he said, “The reason we moved to Arlington was so our child could experience diversity.” He was speaking of Arlington Massachusetts, one of the whitest places on earth. He had moved to honkeyville, but he had somehow convinced himself that it was a rainbow community of racial and ethnic diversity.
Being a polite person, I laughed in his face. There are limits to civility. I doubt he has ever forgiven me for not only laughing at the ridiculous claim, but then proceeding to point out the demographic reality of his new home. Arlington is roughly 85% white and 10% Asian and those Asians will be college professors and professionals. The tiny black and Hispanic population is clustered in one area of town. You can drive around the place all day and never see a brown face that is not riding a lawnmower or leaf blower.


Interesting comments......

Diversity has always been the bane of our society.  Those who espouse it, fail to realize people are drawn to their own.  Used to be the reason families stayed together.

Now, women have become "liberated" and the family is almost a thing of the past.

Just because people live in their own enclaves does not mean they are racists.  Those groups are all citizens.  Those citizens are what makes America great. 

Of course, liberals have vilified diversity until people are beginning to believe it's a bad thing.  It's not.

Remember the comments, "One nation under God...", and, "United we stand, divided we fall.."??

It doesn't matter that we live in groups, as long as we act together as American citizens.

If people wanted diversity it would of happened thousands of years ago but it didnt.

Diversity is not always a strength.  And forcing it is even worse. In a terrible social experiment in the 1960's, the city of Chicago forced "diversity."  It took the form of busing students out of their home districts to other districts in order to force school integration.  So kids had to spend long hours on school buses to travel to a school a longer way from home.  No one liked it.

As Americans, we don't need to FORCE it.  We are all Americans and it doesn't really matter where we choose to live, work, go to church, shop, whatever.  My grandmother was threatened out of her home so she would sell to black people.  That to me is not how "diversity" is achieved.  We should all have a very powerful force in being Americans.  It does not have to be forced, shamed, or threatened.

Look at other countries and their "diversity."  Causes so many problems.  We need a common goal and language.  I say the more we have in common, the more strong we are.  Leave us alone!

Diversity WAS a strength, until the humanist progressives got ahold of it. In the days of "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free...." Diversity meant bringing in the best of differing cultures and peoples, and melding them with our own. Everyone had something to contribute, from foods and drinks to music and dance to engineering and science.  Diversity made us stronger than we would have been limited to fewer cultures.

But then progressivism came in and decided that diversity means everyone does their own thing separately. Melding cultures was declared "bad" because it "erased" cultures in favor of the melded one. Of course, the liberal politicians jumped on that like a pack of feral dogs on a package of wieners. Nothing like a self-proclaimed means of divide and conquer to give government all the power they need to attack basic liberty.

Humanism really is nothing more than a list of excuses for pure self indulgence. Sadly, beyond that humanism is also a whole host of excuses for government to usurp power and squelch liberty.
