No.....I imagine some places where I have lived have them.....and might need them

My opinion....my town right now .....does not need one

Below some links on what they do

As for diversity.....OK
but what about "preserving culture"

Is that a bad thing....?????
Do people have the right to preserve their original or current culture.....of THEIR town
and the inhabitants of that town

Should that not be a consensus mandate?

OK...no judgment on my part...BUT
Part of diversity IS the Red Neck Cracker Bible thumping south.....Right?

And most Southern Blacks... In Southern States where they are close to 40 or 50% of the population
most of them ARE Devote Christians

But I am not seeing
any national Jesus Day.....God day.....or States Rights Day
you have to do that privately......HHHhhhhmmmm?

and I am not a Christian......but diversity is diversity

So are we really coordinating diversity?
OR imposing an agenda

Or just a particular groups concept of diversity?

The biggest demographic in the USA is German

...lol....I ain't seeing no Wiener Snitzal Day
or Baron Von Bismark Day

Diversity?

Here is a map of diversity
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Some places may need a diversity coordinator
Some don't

True demographics
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

White- 223,553,265- 72.4 %
Hispanic or Latino- 50,477,594- 16.4 %
African American- 38,929,319- 12.6 %
Asian American -14,674,252- 4.8 %
Native Americans - 2,932,248- 0.9 %
Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander - 540,013- 0.2 %
Some other race -19,107,368- 6.2 %

So we destroy/discount/discredit the culture of some
to promote the culture of others?

and call that diversity?

28% get to change the culture of  72%
even in an area where none of the 28% live

Coordinator ??????
HHHhhhhhhmmmmm?

Coordinator of what?

Well, it looks like here, we need a diversity coordinator... we are getting another 70 refugees
from Congo, Iraq and Myanmar. From what I understand, they will be given homes, cars and all the help they need to train for jobs.

I worked(volunteered) as an English Speech
tutor for these types of people at one time (new to USA)
One is now a college professor, one has a US government job, and 2 successful business owners
They assimilated just fine

And my father "sponsored" 10 Vietnamese refugees(took into our home)....after Vietnam fell
Again...they all did well in the USA...assimilated just fine

So I am not heartless to their fate......and I respected their diversity from the get go

I resent the government telling people how to be......either way

but again.....is it diversity they need?
The USA is the melting pot.....Hell except for the Natives....we are all immigrants
What makes us a great place...lol...the melting pot.....not the extermination of natives

"Extermination of natives"??????...HHHHhhhhmmmmm?

Anyway

The "Diversity" agenda ignores that fact
It is about a redistribution of power
NOT respecting diversity


No judgment on my part

Should they not try to assimilate ?
or should everyone rearrange for their diversity?

Isn't not acknowledging the existing culture of where they now live.....
....just reverse ignorance?

and how would...Congo, Iraq and Myanmar
 react to you or I as a refugee in their country?

So what percent of the population will now be
of.....Congo, Iraq and Myanmar decent?

OK....and next question/thought
We talked on another question about Grassroots and "Advocates"

These refugees HAVE an advocate...( getting houses,cars,job training.....like the tutoring I have done)
.....the working poor already in the USA.....does not
Why is this?

Many are upset... saying we should be taking care of those here first because many have no homes, jobs or cars.
I wouldn't want to turn down anyone who needs help, but how does it work to bring more people to take the jobs some here might be able to use? I truly believe this is where a lot of prejudice begins because people have hurt feelings over things like this... feeling those brought here are treated better than those who live here.

Yes I agree.......on all levels
Not sure why these refugees get a piece of the pie saved for them......

I do see why someone might be resentful
"Ignorance begets ignorance"

I guess we would have to follow the money
and see just who is the man or woman or group behind their  advocacy curtain

Could it be foreign interest ......that lobbies our politicians?

They "foreign interest"......spends money on Politicians.....I am sure they get what they pay for

This is in one of the links I included

"On June 21, 2007, Moore delivered a speech on the House floor calling for the repeal of a federal rule enacted in the '90s meant to provide Congress with additional oversight on Liberia at a time when the warlord Charles Taylor led the country. Moore argued the rule was no longer needed, given the democratic election in 2005 of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Africa's first female head of state.

Moore, a Milwaukee Democrat, said through a spokesman that she did not introduce the measure as a result of the government's lobbying efforts and that the country's lobbyists contacted her office once they learned of her interest in helping the country.

Moore also has developed an interest in so-called "vulture funds" - investment vehicles that buy defaulted debt by Third World countries at a fraction of the cost, then try to make a profit by forcing the countries to repay them. The issue is a top concern for Congo.

Foreign lobbyists have been in contact with most members of Wisconsin's congressional delegation in recent years, records show.

Follow the money......
Most of the screwed up things in our world
have something behind them

pretty much the same things/types of people that have always been behind screwed up things in the world

And they are REAL GOOD at deflecting blame
they have had 5000 years of practice

I'm going to be honest here and say I don't keep up on much that's going on, but will take time to read the links and maybe.. even learn a few things.

I see I have homework to do. I never gave much thought to a lot of things and maybe... should have.
