My question to anyone touting “diversity” is always the same.

Along what lines of diversity, or in what regard are we talking about?

Race?

Culture?

Ethnicity?

Sex?

Education?

Ideology?

Sexual proclivities?

Family background?

Economic background?

The list could go on and on. Truth is the vast majority of people pushing the inanity of diversity don’t know. It’s just a dumb slogan like “defund the police”.


Don't you ever wonder why
In spite of all that's wrong here
There's still so much that goes so right
And beauty abounds?

The thunder rolls and the baby sighs
And the rain comes down
Don't you wanta thank someone for this?

If they meant real diversity then it would actually be a good thing, but all they mean is a diversity of color. There is plenty of diversity in a population white people, and simply adding a different color doesn't make it any more diverse in ways that are actually beneficial. There could easily be and likely is more diversity between two white people raised in different parts of the same country than between a black and a white inner city dweller. It's another one of those things where they take a statement that is potentially true and warp its meaning.

“Diversity” is a liberal code word for Reverse Discrimination.

Diversity is good, helps to hear perspectives from multiple angles.

The left should try it sometimes....

True, diversity should involve drawing knowledge from every possible source then discarding that which is not useful. Dull people can't tell the difference.

Like every other social scam, it serves one purpose- help Democrats get elected.

Does "diversity".....

Lower unemployment?
Increase the GNP?
Improve national defense
Decrease the national debt
Help overcome pollution , etc., etc,,,,?

Then why do we need more diversity?


The only diversity that brings value is diversity in thought, when challenged to both justify and sell that thought to others.
A man is a man is a man. He is either good or otherwise and either image is self created.


If the deplorable becomes the inevitable, it is only a small step to the inevitable becoming the acceptable.

The push for diversity has never been so debated until the generation of “I’m a winner, cuz my mom said, so” is being put into action by the generation that born and raised them.

Teach a child that everything in life should be fair, and you raise a socialist.

1) All the foreign labor has driven/kept the wage rate so low for that work, that Americans won’t do it..

and

2) The availability of “social services” (free healthcare, free food, free housing) has made it so people don’t have to work to survive, so they DON’T..

And “contractor” employers would rather hire a somewhat skilled illegal than a know-nothing teenager, so teens aren’t even working, now.

You take 2-3 generations of this behavior (it gets passed down to children), and whaddaya get???

"Diversity is our strength" is what we're told, but actually, it's is simply being used as a way to divide and conquer.

Diversity is basically discrimination against white men. I remember our company bosses talking about it as if it was a good thing that would bring different points of view from different cultures that the average white man would never think about. This was suppose to make us stronger. Seldom did it. It's hard to tell how many more qualified people have been passed up because of this.

Now that I'm retired,
Coffee in the morning
Beer in the afternoon
with a couple waters mixed in thru out the day, is diversed as I intend to get.

Diversity is a concept embraced by the weak in hope that the strong will include them. Sometimes the weak need a stomping to remind them that the strong don't care about them. This needs to happen soon.
