Im looking at arkansas,, but I dont see to many members from there.. any residents care to post up about your state and racial diversity? this is what I think about diversity In my opinion, seeking diversity for the sake of diversity (or political correctness) has to be one of the biggest wastes of time and futile efforts I can imagine. I happen to believe diversity actually weakens society as a whole. Hypothetical scenerio- If you were seriously ill, would you want a <insert race of choice> physician (for the sake of diversity) or the best physician period? A few examples. Example 1-The minority quota system in education. Allowing less qualified individuals to be admitted to universities based on race (or having race taken into consideration), instead of based exclusively on academic merit. Lowering standards and expectations of people only weakens our society. Example 2. Women in the military for the sake of diversity. Women in the military DO NOT have to meet the same physical strength requirements (I.E. push ups, endurance running, obstacle course time) as the men. Would you want to be in the same foxhole with a person who couldn't phyically pull you to safety in the event you were injured? I do not believe our strength as a nation is based in or on diversity but simply allowing individuals (regardless of race, creed, color, etc.) to be the best they can be-based on their own individual skills, talents, and abilities. The proverbial cream always rises to the top. If I choose to hate, dismiss, or marginalize any person or group based on race, creed, color, religion... that is my individual choice. All the propaganda ads on TV and radio promoting any "liberal" agenda and all the government legislation in the world isn't going to matter. I am still free to think and feel whatever I want about anyone I want. It is my individual choice and right to associate with anyone I choose to. If you (generally speaking) hate me, ect., because of whatever reason- that's your choice. It's not going to affect my life one iota. I'm still going to do whatever I'm going to do in order to achieve and live the best life possible by playing the cards in life I was dealt. To illustrate how absurd the diversity belief is- Why aren't there any one- legged asian midgets with herpes in the NBA? It's not fair they're excluded nor actively recruited. .
