 Well, I guess I must have masochistic tendencies, because when I learned that the UNITY conference would be coming to the Beltway this year, I volunteered to bring my divisively brown-skinned self back to the gathering. I contacted UNITY program co-chair O. Ricardo Pimentel, whom I once debated on immigration issues in Tempe, Ariz., and asked if UNITY would be interested in putting me on a panel to offer my ideologically diverse views on homeland security issues. He politely passed the buck, and I never heard back from UNITY.

 So, alas, I won't be joining UNITY's illusion of inclusion this year. No hard feelings. But I am hoping that some venturesome journalist will pass along my Media Diversity Test to the multicultural masses at UNITY. Test-takers get five points for every statement they mark "YES."

 1. I have never voted for a Democrat in my life.

 2. I think my taxes are too high.

 3. I supported Bill Clinton's impeachment.

 4. I voted for President Bush in 2000.

 5. I am a gun owner.

 6. I support school voucher programs.

 7. I oppose condom distribution in public schools.

 8. I oppose bilingual education.

 9. I oppose gay marriage.

 10. I want Social Security privatized.

 11. I believe racial profiling at airports is common sense.

 12. I shop at Wal-Mart.

 13. I enjoy talk radio.

 14. I am annoyed when news editors substitute the phrase "undocumented person" for "illegal alien."

 15. I do not believe the phrase "a chink in the armor" is offensive.

 16. I eat meat.

 17. I believe O.J. Simpson was guilty.

 18. I cheered when I learned that Saddam Hussein had been captured.

 19. I cry when I hear "Proud To Be an American" by Lee Greenwood.

 20. I don't believe The New York Times.

 I'm sure a large number of my culturally and ideologically diverse readers would earn a perfect score, as I did. What is the average score among UNITY attendees? Take the test, my fellow journalists of "diversity," and show us your true colors.
