Diversity: Is thy name a lie?
America, a country built on diverse beliefs, cultures, religions and ethnicities once united as a people strong against the foes of freedom. Have we lost the dream?
Today, August 29, 2016, I read an article about a black elementary school principal in Oregon who is celebrating her decision to prohibit students from pledging allegiance to the flag of our great nation. Her reason, “diversity.”
If offered the chance, I would ask this principal how she defines “diversity.”
Does not the denial of one’s right to Pledge Allegiance to the Flag of United States of America also deny one’s right to be diverse?
Does she, as a black woman claim the right to be diverse in her culture, beliefs, and religion?
I would chance to guess her answer is yes.
Then why, dear principal do you feel it contingent upon you to deny others their right to diversity?
