In my area, there has ALWAYS been lots "Diversity". But they didn't care about that, back in the old days. It was a meaningless term to them. Even just fifty-sixty years ago.
All that DID matter was working hard and making money, whatever your ethnic background (and church, for most of them). When that's all you're focused on, then people get along great. And everybody prospers, oddly enogh.

Today, this phony push for "Diversity" has pushed all of that aside.

Right, there definitely wasn't and isn't widespread, well-documented discrimination in employment, housing, etc.

Yes, we all realize things were great for white Christians. They were not great for everybody else.

If it was so great and everybody prospered, why do we still have ghettos filled with black people?

60 years ago, African Americans weren't even allowed to use the same restrooms or drinking fountains as Caucasians in many parts of the country.

Sounds like they were getting along great back then, huh?

You're either lying with this quote, or lying with your listed location by your username.

Caribou, Maine is apparently 98.2% white.

Yes, that is extremely diverse

Purposeful, forced, artificial diversity for the reason of righting past wrongs, and for social engineering is a CROCK. Legal, organic, immigration is fine with people that WANT to assimilate and become Americans.

Diversity is a dirty word to promote division, infighting and help bring about the anarchy the liberals champion. The word itself is like the intestines of a No. Korean. Full of parasites living off the host.

There are still ghettos full of black people because of liberals. They want a dependent class of voters, so they do not implement policies that promote independence and upward mobility. Power is more important to liberals than actually helping the people they claim to champion. The best example is the left's dogmatic opposition to school choice.

Yeah, that's a hoot - a guy from Maine lecturing on diversity! I mean, did you work at the paper mill, as a logger or for the shipyard....or were you an alcoholic recluse. Now that's diversity!

Maybe it' the French Canadians he is referring to.
