Posted on 11/29/2011 11:00:32 PM PST by UltraConservative
This week, in Oakland, Calif., America saw yet another stellar example of the glories of diversity. At a taping of a rap music video in that fair city, eight people, including a one-year-old child, were shot. When a classical music video goes wrong, somebody busts a string. When a rap music video goes wrong, somebody busts a cap.
Such observations, however, are now taboo. We're not supposed to suggest that the rap culture is any different from the classical music culture or that one is better than another. As white guy John Kerry put it, "I think there's a lot of poetry in it. There's a lot of anger, a lot of social energy in it. And I think you'd better listen to it pretty carefully, 'cause it's important ... it's a reflection of the street and it's a reflection of life."
You see, we recognize the value of diversity. And what's more, we think everyone else does, too. Hence the left's certainty that the election of President Barack Obama would win over the Muslim world -- his very ascendance would show the rest of the world that we find their cultures charming, praiseworthy and delightfully fascinating. "It's November 2008," wrote formerly-sane Andrew Sullivan of The Atlantic. "A young Pakistani Muslim is watching television and sees this man -- Barack Hussein Obama -- is the new face of America. In one simple image, America's soft power has been ratcheted up not a notch, but a logarithm."
There's only one problem: The Muslim world isn't hung up on skin color the way we are. Which isn't to say they're not racist -- they're busily snatching up black children for use as slaves or murdering them in Sudan, even as the BBC blithely claims, in the name of diversity, that "While Islamic law does allow slavery under certain conditions, it's almost inconceivable that those conditions could ever occur in today's world, and so slavery is effectively illegal in modern Islam." In point of fact, Muslim countries in Africa and the Middle East lead the world in human trafficking.

Rap music - As Dennis Miller would say: “If my yawn got any bigger they’d have to assign it a hurricane name.”
Agree with you 100%. Lets not let them water down diversity for the sake of being diverse. There is good and there is evil.
While having Sephardic Jews, Italians, English, Germans, Poles, Ashkenazi Jews, Irish, Polish, Yemeni Jews etc. enriches and STRENGTHENS the nation, the virus that is Izlam weakens and destroys a nation, destroys civilisations
yup, Islam will be destroyed by God in the end..it would be a good enslaving regime for the scum of the earth before meltdown..
The diversity mantra is a part of political correctness and political correctness is like believing one can pick up a turd by the clean end.
War is peace
Freedom is slavery
Diversity is strength
That fits well there, doesn’t it?
Political Correctness is nothing more than mandatory, enforced stupidity.
Indeed. Everyone knows that it is ignorance that is strength! Big brother says it is so, so it must be so.
In theory, Islam affirms the equality of all Muslims, but in practice, it largely privileges Arabs, genuine or claimed, over non-Arabs. This is because (1) Arabic is the language of the Koran, eternal and uncreated (and according to Islam, the Koran is only the Koran in Arabic; in any other language it’s merely a translation of the meanings); (2) Arabic is the language of heaven; (3) Muhammad spoke Arabic.
Thus, Sudanese Muslims of claimed Arab descent lord it over non-Arab Sudanese and consider it an insult to be called “black,” although they don’t look different at all, and self-styled Arabs are disproportionately among the top dogs in Pakistan, and can sometimes be distinguished by the root Sh-R-F (cf. “sharif”) in their names: Musharraf, Ashraf, etc.
Nothing to do with my point about American Muslims.
