First of all, thanks for referring to me as "Mr. Uncool". Very adult of you.
Also, looking at your following quotes, I notice some ad hominem, using words such as "stupidity" and "asinine" (note the correct spelling of asinine).
As a rule, when a person has to use these sort of petty insults it is because they can't effectively argue the original point. Guess I won.
It is both observable and statistically demonstrable that when non-white minorities become a substantial presence in a city, crime rises, school performance drops, and quality of life issues deteriorate. To say or think otherwise is either being dishonest or naive. Odds are great that an influx of "diversity" would not be a good thing for northern ID.
Another problem with the "diversity is good" crowd like the original poster is that they only seem to target their message at whites. I doubt he/she has posted anything in forums for cities that are 90+ % black or hispanic, and chided them for not being diverse, asking why there aren't more whites, why are they behind the times, etc., etc. The whole racial diversity message is very selective, and always aimed solely at white cities, states, and countries.
There, I'm done venting. I'm not politically correct or out to score points (or "reps") with anyone. Deal with it, and keep the petty insults out of it.

The statemennt asking for "...proof that racial diversity makes communities, schools, or industry better..." is as assinine as is the the query "what is so bad about there being a few areas of the country left that are mostly white?"

Has any one else here noticed the original "pot stirrer" is gone? It seems lidala started this thread for a reason and that is to bring out the nut jobs and try to prove a point. Well, it didn't work Moderator cut: off topic Let's drop this now so we don't start a flame war, and we can prove lidala wrong. It is not worth the time.
