The Diversity Fetish

At one time in America civil rights applied to white people. Back during those halcyon days there was something called private property. If a private college wanted only black females, the key word was "private." Now private means the government manages ownership, unless you're black. Of course, what non-black person could stomach being around all those racist blacks?

There is an uplifting American feel about a university, a workplace or a neighborhood brimming with people of different races. It is the product of a nation assembled of people from everywhere else. From many places, one people.

Other nations have diversity of a sort, but no one can go to France and become French. I cannot go to Brazil and become Brazilian. The diversity of America, an assemblage of skin colors painted with a wide swath of history from immigration to slavery, has become a uniquely beautiful concept.

Leave it to government to screw it up.
