The so-called diversity movement is actually a re-segregation movement, much like the time of the KKK when Democrats resisted freedmen from ‘acting uppity’ (acting like free white men).
In the liberal, far-left world of academia, white people are not allowed to have a persona apart from that of persecutor/tormentor of all non-white skin colors.
What’s the evidence, you ask?
In nearby San Antonio, there is a “No Whites Allowed” magazine on the UTSA campus that will “create a space for “black and brown people, especially those who are queer,” according to The Washington Times.”
Rockwall ISD posts a “diversity score” of 0.48. You didn’t know? “a score closer to 1 indicates a more diverse student body”.
Proponents of the Diversity Movement promise a stronger society. The premise sounds good, so should we not act accordingly?
I quote from the Globe article:
“...the greater the diversity in a community, the fewer people vote and the less they volunteer, the less they give to charity and work on community projects. In the most diverse communities, neighbors trust one another about half as much as they do in the most homogenous settings. The study, the largest ever on civic engagement in America, found that virtually all measures of civic health are lower in more diverse settings.”
Colonial America was about as diverse as any geographical area on earth, at that time. There were religious divisions – Catholic, Baptist, Quakers, Jews, Lutherans, and others. Another diverse demarcation was along the lines of slave owners and abolitionists. In summary, with respect to ‘diversity’, America has been there, done it before, and we wore thirteen tee shirts to mark our territory.
The foregoing describes our colonial diversity. But something, some force, enabled us to overcome our diversity to unite for a common purpose. What was that something?
I refer to the Declaration of Independence, as I often do, for the most fundamental principle of good government: consent of the governed.
This document says Governments are instituted among Men for the purpose of securing our natural rights to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness (property rights). Furthermore, good government derives its just powers from the consent of the governed.
When King George III decided to strip British citizens of these 13 colonies of proper representation in Parliament, we easily overcame our ‘diversity’ as we united in the greater cause of good government based on our consent.
Democrats salaciously lambaste all so-called white people as ‘racists’. How many races are there? How about the human race? We are one race. Our blood and our organs are easily interchangeable – verify this with the Red Cross and the Organ Donor Registry.
Mark 12:30-31 is the cure for diversity: Love
Jesus commands us to love our neighbor. What is a neighbor? One usually associates this word as the folks next door and indeed they are your neighbors. The word actually means ANYONE nearby, the people whose lives you touch and those who touch your own.
In lieu of a diversity movement, I propose a unity movement based on God’s plan, the Bible.
