"Diversity is a poisonous influence on America"? That comes off as a demeaning, ethnocentric statement. There is a huge difference between the term "diversity" and the term "multiculturalism." "Diversity" refers specifically to race, while "multiculturalism" refers to cultural diversity - habits and customs (including those of immigrants from the UK, Ireland, etc. who are somehow never singled out. Are they all legal? Has anyone checked their status or are they not as unwelcomed as some?). I'm not a proponent of multiculturalism when, in the end, the citizen's loyalty does not belong to the U.S., but to the mother country. This contributes to the lack of national pride. However, I am also judiciously aware that, except for the same, select few, many Americans of other racial groups are grossly under-represented in American culture. In this sense, I become a staunch supporter of diversity.
