    16Dec2010 Discriminations


    it is always interesting to find evidence that the benefits of 'diversity' are so contradictory when you look at real world cases.

    Right: the lesson here is that SEGREGATION works.

    Why not extend the concept to entire societies?

    I prefer to see it as evidence that diversity has no intrinsic value other than what political correctness has bestowed.

    The interesting finding is how much better blacks do when they get to set their own standards and dont have to deal with the success of other races. I wonder if the teachers trained at HBCUs have better pass rates on state competancy exams than black teachers trained at more diverse institutions?

    American Thinker: The College Diploma Fraud


    this is a good article. I wonder how many people really do think that it is the piece of paper that is important rather than the knowledge it is supposed to guarantee.

    If you find an all-white society, please move there.

    Demographic trends show -- much to the consternation of the folks discussing the issue on NPR last night -- that that's exactly what people do. I have in a sense taken your advice in that I now live in a county that is 98 percent white. Of course, I still pay a lot of taxes to support the non-whites elsewhere, and that's the problem. In a neighboring county, the city is black (50 percent) and the suburbs are white (80 percent).

    The trend is the same throughout the nation. We AREN'T integrating. Racial groups prefer to cluster... it's practically a law of nature. Our efforts to disrupt this natural functioning have led to a lot of misery, annoyance and wasted money. But it makes liberals feel good, so we'll continue, I predict.

    Totally agreed.

    The problem is that not only does it lack intrinsic value, it

    1. Contains affirmative HARMS (see the work of Robert Putnam of Harvard, who has shown -- and he dislikes his own findings -- that people become repressed and anxious in "diverse" societies)

    2. Is enforced as holy writ by the media, the law, academia, and our political class. Diversity is mandatory, in other words... it is the official state religion of America. Questioning "diversity" is like questioning Rome's authority during the Inquisition.

    What we need, at the very least, is a "calling off of the dogs" on "diversity" and multiracialism, and to let things roll as they do without the EEOC filing lawsuits all over and political incorrectness being a huge social taboo.

    The crucial point to my mind is that "diversity" is based on a falsehood: that racial and ethnic groups have no biologically inherent differences, only superficial ones. Not true. Racial and ethnic groups are very real. They have proven the undercurrent of history. Disraeli said that "race is all" and he was right.

    And it's not just a silly liberal curiosity. It carries huge social costs, most of which are borne by whites.

    Cannot biologically inherent differences BE superficial?

    The truth is that in the "real" world, if people can't do the job, they get fired. Business is NOT a charitable organization.

    Have you noticed how many racist rants come from the right wing? Is it merely a coincidence the Republican Party is 90% white? And that Republicans have the most degrees ----> in Bible Study? And Republicans make up only 6% of scientists?

    Now get this, this is absolutely hilarious. There are organizations for scientists from Hispanic, black, gay, women, Democrat and Liberal. But if there is one for Republicans or Conservatives, I couldn't find it. Seriously, is that hilarious or what?:mm: It's like the group that's the most dumb rants against other groups who are trying to improve themselves.

    From gay man George Bernard Shaw:
    "I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it."

    Oh man, there I go again ruining ANOTHER thread with facts. No wonder right wingers call me names. Hopefully, they are only out looking for "scientific" websites made up of Republicans. Like THAT'S going to happen.
