"I've heard from a number of people already, both black and white, that their kids -- 7, 8, 9 years old -- take for granted now that of course a black can run for president. Of course a woman can run for president. There's a matter of factness to it that I think bodes well for the future."

You must have enjoyed McCain's "speech" in Louisiana last night, then.

Do you have a clue why? It is because schools have been FORCED to teach diversity and cram it down kids' throats. I taught for 30 years; in that tiem, education went from teachers educating children to being the one who taught them what the curriculum (from the state) force fed for diversity. Morals went out; diversity came in. if I was to do this all over, I would go to a private school or parochial... anywhere I didn't need to teach things which were destructive to society

The only problem I have with that statement is that the current hate comes more from the left than from the right. Also, it is a matter of unarguable fact that the diversity you speak of also = anti Christian in every way possible.

To me, that's a fraud and a sham.

It's also so very sad. It's THE single thing that turned me from ther democratic party to an independent- all the hatred in the name of diversity. I was ashamed.

Yes, but that's par for the course around here. And I plead "guilty" as well.
