Diversity Is Bunk

I attended one of the premier educational institutions in the United States in the nineteen fifties: P.S. 104 on the corner of 95th Street and Fifth Avenue in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. It’s still there. But as Dr. Thomas Sowell said about one he attended in those years, it might be the “same building” but it’s not the “same school.”

    Listen to Israel Zangwill’s famous 1904 play The Melting Pot in which he greeted new arrivals to this amazing nation of ours:

    …here you stand in your fifty groups, with your fifty languages and histories, and your fifty blood hatreds and rivalries. But you won’t be long like that, brothers, for these are the fires of God you’ve come to — these are the fires of God. A fig for your feuds and vendettas! Germans and Frenchmen, Irishmen and Englishmen, Jews and Russians — into the Crucible with you all! God is making the American.

        I think God had it right when he put us all on different continents to grow and achieve our own unique destinies. We f*cked things up when we said “Maybe we should invite some of those poor little kneegrows and sand people to come live with us…???”

        We were separated for a reason.

  • People don’t realise that the New World and its “melting pot” rigour have already achieved egalitarianism. No one cares about one’s bloodline nor are castes a factor in hiring someone. The same cannot be said in most countries whose problems people wish to duplicate.

    People have some kind of shame which is a neurosis. That’s their problem.
