Promoting diversity is just a way for liberals to hide discrimination against white people. Why aren't they complaining about the lack of diversity at BET, the Miss Black America Pageant, the Black News Channel, or any of the other numerous organizations and institutions that exclude anyone who isn't black?

The guy I'm currently dating is Asian (Korean American)...the reason he would ask about an Asian community if we were to move somewhere is because he'd want to know where he might find an actual Asian Supermarket that carries some of the ethnic cuisine that a typical standard supermarket doesn't carry...he could care less about hanging out w/ other "Asians" as he is very comfortable hanging w/ anyone...but he does have certain things he likes that are hard to find outside of Asian markets.
If that's the case, why not just look up Asian Markets on Google maps. Why be asking for a diverse neighborhood? Those are 2 different things.

I am very glad I don't live next to you. Terrible attitude.

Diversity isn’t a strength. Unity is a strength.

How can it be both? (Please don't answer if all you want to do is cut-paste your usual mindless political-labeled bashing. There is no agenda here -- just wondering if anybody has any thoughtful ideas of how these two trends might play out.)
As a black man, veteran, and ex-pat, I'm going to move to the best neighborhood for my family (if I was married), kids (if I had any), schools, healthcare, career, and investment.

If that's a majority white and Asian neighborhood, so be it. If I'm the only black man, so be it.

Everyone likes the sound of diversity, until they realize how many groups refuse to assimilate. I'll take my chances with "racist white people" over Southside Chicago any day of the week, just like Lebron James, BLM, Colin Kaepernick, etc. who all live next to rich white people.

You think there arent white people at BET or the Black News Channel ?????

both have plenty of white people, and basically mean black as in culture, not color.

the black beaty pageant is different, thats just the equivalent of an HBCU, it exists because black people werent allowed to be in white pageants .

Because statistically racist white people aren't shooting at me every weekend, looting local stores after every viral police video, throwing trash wherever they want, blasting loud music from their cars daily, blaming their obesity on food deserts, blaming their job prospects on racist highways, claiming voter ID laws are racist, decreasing property values with crime and vandalism, etc.

This is why Lebron James, BLM executives, Colin Kaepernik, and Naomi Osaka all live next to those racist white people, when they could live anywhere in the world.

there are no statistical studies on the habits of racist white people when interacting with black people.

But the last time it was ok to be an open racist, a lot of black people died and or had their livelihoods destroyed by mobs of those people.

kind of weird to pretend you dont know anything about the history of this country.
