From what I've gathered from reading NavyDoc's posts, he seems to think that poverty is a moral crime.

So yeah, possibly.

Most of those links, I wouldn't trust the spin. But the Harvard one, it's a private college... they can add required classes as they see fit. Public Policy degree programs absolutely should include topics of race, we still have a massive race problem in this country.

Right wing media of course spins diversity classes as white privilege classes and I seriously doubt they're mandatory.

That's a hell of a leap. I grew up in abject poverty and was a fairly moral person.

I don't recall making a personal comment about you, so you're going to have to defend your comment.

It is not spin. The classes are called "White Privilege" classes.

The company who makes them calls the curriculum White Privilege.

All of this information was in the articles I linked to.

There are lots more sources. Go look them up if you don't believe me and
prove me wrong on the linked examples.
The classes are mandatory for many police (I just didn't include those links)
for the military, for many public school districts and teachers.

The goal appears to be to make white people feel ashamed of being white
and to realize that just being white makes them oppressors of all other humans,
at least that is what the articles I linked to said.

Things like this are what is enraging the petition signers
who are reacting to a constant barrage of shame and blame
directed to white people.
They are handling their rage over what they feel is an injustice
quite badly. But nonetheless, that is what is fueling this absurd reaction
toward the statue.

No. Rabid right-wing pundits adverse to diversity in the first place, telling you so doesn't make it true.

ETA: Furthermore discussions on privilege (not just white) are not about shaming or guilt. It's about learning the ways in which, by accident of birth, some start life out several steps ahead in life and others start several steps behind and that it can be considerably different for less privileged to do something so simple as walking down the street.

Take a look at our entire criminal justice system... hugely different experiences for white as opposed to black, rich as opposed to poor. Our criminal justice system errors cannot be corrected without acknowledging privilege. And that's just one example.

Discussing it doesn't mean you or I should feel guilty because we're privileged... it means simply that we should in the interest of fairness and equality and making our Constitution, Bill of Rights etc... mean what they are supposed to mean, do something to correct it.

Ahhhhh, DIVERSITY!

Ask our friends in the EU how that's working out for them!

So we should eject all non-whites from our country and our Constitution?

Gotta love the extreme emotional over-reaction of the left. How about treating everyone the same?

I was responding to a post in which the poster seemed to sneer at diversity as if it's a bad thing. Is asking for clarity a bad thing? I could have misinterpreted and I won't know unless I ask.

I'm all for treating everyone the same. How do you propose we go about getting there?

Is that what I said?

Or is it now politically correct to put words in someone's mouth?

Treating everyone the same, regardless of color.


"I have a dream where my children will grow up in a country where they are judged, not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

Sound familiar?


"Diversity" to the left is quite often just another flavor of racism.

That's my vote!

Be respectful and kind to everyone you meet.

Treat others well, and compliment people who are extra nice, or patient, or kind, or helpful.

Treat everyone the same, what a far right and truly heinous concept!

Did I stutter?

Let me repeat! "Ask the people living in the EU how diversity is working out."

BTW? I know you hate bankers as do I, but do a google on the head of Goldman Sachs telling the EU that they SHOULD take in EVERY refugee from Africa who wants to come in!!!!!

Your being played! PLEASE! Look up what I asked you to do?

Compassion is honorable, but to allow yourself to be played by banker scum?

I understand the refugee crisis in the EU. What does that have to do with diversity?
