To me it means - Diversity. Not all one race. I think most people think of it that way. If a town was 96% any race, I would not call it "diverse".

Most people would agree.

IMO you'd be doing your kids a big disservice sending your kids to Red Bank Regional instead of Red Bank Catholic. ps, I'm not Catholic.

To Sheena12, I have no idea why you’re explaining diversity to me. I have no idea about how diverse Ocean Township is and no opinion about it. I don’t live there and I’ve not seen any statistics about it.You missed the point of my post, which is that Ocean Township and Ocean County are 2 different places. I posted that several minutes before somebody else, who then said the same thing as I did. Please take your condescending attitude somewhere else, and also learn how to get the main idea from whatever you read.

Oh, rich people, please stop pretending to care about diversity. We all know you're not moving anywhere remotely diverse and pretending to care doesn't make you any better than your rich friends who don't go through motions of pretending to care.

You want diverse, try Shrewsbury Township. No, I'm not talking about Shrewsbury Borough. We're the remnant of the original township from 1693. Population hit 1200 in the last census.

The problem is that you won't be able to buy a single family home. There aren't any. There is a condo complex, an apartment complex, and a co-op complex. One store, and a community center for the municipal government and town activities. Three streets, all with a speed limit of 15 mph. A large park in the middle with a playground and deer that come out to graze every evening.

State police at the former Fort Monmouth are our cops, we pay Shrewsbury Borough for fire, and the kids go to school in Tinton Falls. I'm white, my neighbors are black, white, Malaysian, an Asian/white mixed race family, Brazilians...

Now that's diversity.

Between the two = Little Silver!

Now if I only could afford a little sliver of Little Silver.

Diversity is infiltrated just about everywhere in NJ IMHO.

I think she quoted the wrong person. There was a clearly TROLL poster who posted:
"Further proof that "diversity" means "non-white."
To the OP: How about you concern yourself with the personalities, values, and behaviors of your neighbors instead of their skin color."

I live in Holmdel.
Yes, there are definitely hundreds of grumpy old conservatives who live in Colts Neck and mobilized against the vote. I know I'm gonna get a lot of flack for talking about conservatives that way, but I guarantee that no liberal would vote against the schools in this manner.
