who really cares about diversity

The Atlantic decided to show some honesty amidst mass media + political correctness’ lip service to diversity, but lack of real life daily diversity: Maybe it’s time to admit the obvious. We don’t really care about diversity all that much in America, even though we talk about it a great deal. Maybe somewhere in this country there is a truly diverse neighborhood in which a black Pentecostal minister lives next to a white anti-globalization activist, who lives next to an Asian short-order cook, who lives next to a professional golfer, who lives next to a postmodern-literature professor and a cardiovascular surgeon. But I have never been to or heard of that neighborhood. Instead, what I have seen all around the country is people making strenuous efforts to group themselves with people who are basically like themselves.

    You, not you as a person but the general person, don’t care about diversity unless an you are, yourself, some how diverse, or different.
    Raised in an all white southern baptist church made me wonder if my church community loved “colored” people like me or just tolerated our differences.
