DIVERSITY EXCLUDES NOT INCLUDES...A Bit of a REPEAT
I love liberal academic terms. What I love about them is that I can make fun of them and like fingernails to a chalkboard it bothers intellectual elitists. DIVERSITY is one of those terms used by liberals that is supposed to be "inclusive" for those who are indeed "feeling" excluded, whether it be by race, gender, sexual preference or socio-economic status. However nothing could be further from the truth. The diversity bus is the most exclusive club in America. To belong to the diverse club, you have to be A. liberal B. oppressed or C. dumb as a rock, anyone else is kindly not allowed to climb on. Let me give you an example.
My son and I were bored last week during spring break and decided to go to our favorite restaurant to hang out, order a bunch of food, drink endless soda and play UNO. We were seated in a booth with another booth directly behind us being occupied as well. Many of you have experienced the annoying invasion of your conversation space by someone talking so loud you have no choice but to hear the details of their idiocy. The person in the booth behind us asked his lunch mate where she was looking to purchase a home. Miss Mover said she was looking in Gilbert. The loud speaking person I will call community Juggernaut, said "Oh NO you do NOT want to live in Gilbert"! Miss mover asked why not and community juggernaut said "There are way too many Mormons that live here and you do not want to live by all these Mormons". Miss Mover asked why not? Community juggernaut said, "Well they keep to themselves and don't talk to anyone but other Mormons". Miss Mover said really? Community juggernaut said "Yes there is no diversity in Gilbert, you need to move to Scottsdale there is a lot of diversity there". Miss mover said "Well you know I do want to live by people where I share some commonality" and CJ said "Oh you will have a lot in common, everyone in Scottsdale has a lot of money, but they also will have your same values and interests and it is much more diverse" WTF? And the conversation continued and I was dumber for listening, I am thinking about suing. let me say this first...I live in a neighborhood of about 150 residents, 12 of them are Mormons, WOW its an over-overtaking. We Mormons are busy. We are going and doing and don't mean to exclude anyone, but we are involved in family, church and community. If we do try to be your friends you think we are trying to convert you so you give us the stink eye. If we don't talk to you then we are exclusionary. Its a lose/lose for us any way you slice it. I have many friends who are not of my faith or ethnicity and so do my other Mormon friends, so this dude is a big fat liar. HE is in fact the excluder(that may not be a real word). Besides it sounds like he didn't like our value system so we are not allowed to ride the diversity bus because we are not the "SAME AS YOU". If we traded in our values we could ride, so I am wondering why is IT again you push "diversity" when you are in reality pushing "SAMENESS"? Just a question for the intelligentsia...again I will be waiting for your answer. Celebrate diverse people who share a not so diverse philosophy. I really am trying to understand. I don't get it. Do the voices in my head bother you?
Diversity is nothing more than an academic lib acting again like they give a rats ass, that's it. Fooled again diversetards. Celebrate your complete annihilation of true equality and cultural awareness, BY EXCLUDING. Cultural awareLESS.
