The Supreme Court handed down a decision recently, saying that schools should not determine acceptance based on race, effectively reversing decades of government-mandated "discrimination"; and the media and ethnic militants have been up in arms over it. Apparently (if I am sifting through the rhetoric correctly), due to the ethnic 'quota' system implemented back in the 60s, some 'white' students sued when they were not allowed to attend some particular school, because the school's present ethnic balance was heavy on the 'white' side, so any openings were reserved for 'minorities'...but even though there were no minorites wanting entrance, nevertheless the whites could not be accepted, even though there would have been space for them, because it would upset those government-mandated ethnic percentages. Or something like that..!
Chief Justice John Roberts worded it: "The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race."
Just to make something clear before we go on: the term "discrimination" is not a -negative- term, by itself. It has been made into a negative term by agenda driven militants throughout the decades. Certainly, to tell blacks that they must use a different restroom, like was the case years ago, is 'negative' discrimination. But to be offering a job, and have hundreds of applicants, of mixed races, and to choose a Hispanic or Oriental -because- they are Hispanic or Oriental is also discrimination. Yes, for the sake of said Hispanic or Oriental it might be a 'positive' discrimination, because they GOT THE JOB!; but it is "discrimination", nevertheless. A "clear distinction in options" (discriminate) is made based on race. The employer discriminates that there are so many whites, so many blacks, and based on a pre-conceived agenda chooses based on those racial statistics; not necessarily the applicant's qualifications for the job. A customer comes into my sign shop, looks at the color chart and discriminates between the colors and chooses "red" text; looks at the font chart and discriminates and chooses Eurostyle... or whatever. You go to McDonalds and discriminate between the menu options and make a choice as to what you wish to have for your meal. Fine wines are marketed to those with 'discriminating' tastes. Same with expensive stereo equipment, or cars. By the same token, a large group of people is assembled, of mixed races, and it is an -obvious- thing to discriminate -that- this person is white, that one is black, the other over their is oriental. If a person does not discriminate such differences, they are either blind, stupid, or brainwashed. What makes discrimination either good or bad is what people do with it.
Clear enough? Good! Now, to the primary topic...
So, now that the Supremes have handed down this ruling, the agenda-driven militants are whining: Now we'll have to figure out other ways to introduce 'diversity' into the education system.
I thought Education was about teaching "knowledge" (Reading, 'Riting & 'Rithmatic) But no! Apparently it is also about "diversity".
This got me thinking about some things...
True enough! This country had a terrible problem with negative racial discrimination, created by those who founded and settled it. It engaged in slavery. But then, when the slaves were emancipated, as a whole, they were never accepted by their former -masters- as "equals". In the 60s somebody got this bright idea to 'force' the kids together, so they developed quite a bussing scheme, to haul school kids miles out-of-the-way to put white kids in black schools, and black kids in white schools, by some sort of quota system. However, even by 1980, the resulting so-called "integration" never reached up to Bismarck,ND. I drove school bus there a couple years, and I still remember this one afternoon, the bus -full- of kids, and up the lane next to us a vehicle drove by with "USGovt" license plates, and a 'black' person driving. -ALL- the kids on the bus rushed over to that side of the bus with repeated comments of, "Look at the N-----! Look at the N-----! Look at the N-----!" Their comments (I could tell from the tone of their voices) were out of 'curiosity', because in those days there weren't any Negros/Blacks in Bismarck, ND. They had never seen a "person of color" before. But only knowing the terminology of their parents, they labeled the man a "N-----".
I understood their curiosity, because growing up in Japan as I did, in post-war 'rural' Japan, I was the village novelty to the Japanese kids. I was the "gaijin". If I ran an errand to the store to buy a loaf of bread, the entire village would be trailing me, and as I was making the purchase, behind me I could hear all the strained voices as everybody was trying to get a good look, "Gaijin wa nani o kaimasuka?" (What's the foreigner buying?") In Japan I never sensed animosity towards me; just as I did not sense animosity in my school bus kids that day in Bismarck towards that black government employee. Curiosity at that which was different. If you will: "diverse" from the 'local' known norm.
Depending on who one talks to, I suspect there are differences of opinion as to where things stand today, racially, in this country. And I suspect the opinions would vary depending on 'where' one was conducting the opinion poles.
But what are the -results- of ethnic diversity in America?
And, to set a 'standard' by which to make judgments, is not the prevailing race in America 'white'? Yes, there are lesser percentages of black, hispanic, oriental. But the predominant race is 'white'. Our predominant heritage is white Europe. Our language is English.
And yet, I find it a curiosity when various ads come in the mail (for credit cards, cell phones, cable internet, etc)... what are the prevailing races in the ad photos? Black, hispanic and oriental. Where are the whites? It has almost come to the point where any whites used are 'token' whites, but the majority of everything is minority slanted.
If one looks at music or entertainment, where are the whites? The prevailing form right now, "rap", is a predominantly "black" form. And at that, crude and vulgar "gangster" based. But if a white radio talk show host uses the same terminology the blacks use, he gets kicked out of his job. The music in its rock/jazz/blues forms are predominantly "black" forms. Yes, there were the Harry James and Glen Millers...but the majority are/were black. And today's white performers do so in 'black' style. Mariah Karry comes particularly to mind; a white girl pretending to be black; and pretty much everybody since. And what dance forms have resulted? Straight out of the jungle African voodoo pagan fertility gyrations and demonic sideways head/neck 'snaps'. And how many kids in school speak "English" anymore? Even white kids speak eubonics, and most don't even know how to "articulate" their speech.
This is what "diversity" education and "integration" has done? White America hasn't learned merely to -accept- black culture, it has -become- 'black' (in spirit)! And furthermore... the black culture for the most part has not offered reciprocity towards whites.
Now, today, it is a new thing: Islam. Islam, a religion by writ and imam fatwas, with the intent to destroy anything that is not Islam (if it refuses to convert); their ultimate goal is America's destruction. The Blacks never proclaimed such goals; they just wanted 'acceptance' as 'equals' to whites... to be able to sit in the same bus seats and go through the same doors, and not have to worry about KKK lynch mobs, etc.
Today's "diversity" education includes student participation in Muslim traditions: dress, behavior, reading from the Koran, and even bowing to Mecca 5 times a day.
Whatever happened to "christian" America? Many claim that America has "christian" roots. They claim that George Washington, and many of our nations's founders were "christian"; that American laws are based on the Bible and "Judeo/Christian values". (We have addressed the realities of these premises on other occasions, it is not our purpose here)
While voodoo is sticking pins in their dolls, Islam is bowing to Mecca, kids are holding their pre-class meditative Yoga positions...and Christians are holding their quiet prayer meeting....!
Christian kids are no longer allowed to hold prayer meetings! Class assignments are given to read in the Koran, but a Christian kid cannot even have a Bible sitting quietly on their desk, let alone to -READ- it!
Somebody adhering to New Age or some eastern religion can bedeck their necks with streamers of necklaces, pendants, earrings, or wear Muslim scarves and other garb...but if a Christian wears a necklace with a simple cross, they are hauled off to the principal's office. A satan worshiping rock musician can wear a (pagan) cross... but a (known) "christian" cannot. (Again: we're not addressing the fact that Christians should NOT be symbolized with the pagan cross. We're addressing the prevailing public understandings & perceptions of things)
By definition, "diversity" is supposed to allow the free, uninhibited expression of -ALL- THINGS, both cultural and religious. If a Christian shares with others their beliefs in Biblical concepts of righteousness and holiness, it is called "hate speech", and so the all-inclusive "diversity" -EXCLUDES- that which is diverse from their non-Christian values.
Diversity accepts -ALL- things -EXCEPT- those from God and the Bible. And they exhibit EXTREME HATE towards Christians while labeling the Bible as "hate speech".
So... where is their "diversity"? It's a sham! Hypocrisy!
Perhaps it is a wrong form of the word?
They keep saying "diverse" and "diversity", when by their actions of the past decades they really mean "diversion", from the root "to divert".
And here is where Bible translations in subtle things can have such profound difference in meaning.
Thus, too, is the deception of "diversity" education. It is not about DIVERSITY, but rather about DIVERTING....DIVERSION.
What does it mean to "divert" something? An airplane is headed to Seattle, but Seattle is socked in with fog, so the flight is DIVERTED to Portland. It changes direction and goes to a different place. A little tyke is running full-steam towards the hot BBQ, and the adult hand reaches down, holds the little one, turns their body to face a different direction so then...off-you-go 'having fun'. In this country road signs will indicate "Detours"; but in the context of the two thwarted car bombing attempts in London (6/29/07) I noticed on the TV news a temporary sign that said, "Traffic Diversion".
One of communism's tenets is to purposely corrupt the society it wishes to take over. Whether true or not, there were some who said that Martin Luther King was manipulated for the purpose of subverting America, and communism took an already-existing cultural 'clash' (racial unrest), and used the "civil rights movement" toward their goals. Well, it seems (to this observer) that the race relations are 'better' than they used to be in the 50s and 60s. But communism's primary goals have also been achieved. In advancing the black cause, all the paganism they brought from 'dark' Africa pretty much now -defines- our so-called "white" culture. There is not a whole lot, culturally, that is distinctively white anymore. And for those who thought America was a "christian" nation, Africa's paganism has pretty much totally usurped anything that might have been viewed as "christian". (even in the churches)
Now, if it is true that the "Vatican created Islam" [link] it is not at all surprising that Islam is on a global plan of world domination by the same oppressive militant tactics that Rome used to use: conversion at the edge of the sword. Rome was busy "christianizing" native cultures at the tip of the bayonet. Islam is engaged in Jihad. Same goals; essentially the same tactics.
And what is "diversity" doing regarding Islam? It is -DIVERTING- students -to- Islam by engaging them in participatory educational methods; physically -doing- everything that Muslims do in worship. Catholicism (Babylon) worships the sun, Islam worships the moon. Two peas in a pod.
The reason modern "diversity" does not include "[C]hristianity" in their lists of 'tolerance' ideologies is because the WHOLE POINT of "diversity" is to "divert" the world AWAY FROM GOD!
God's law says that two men should not behave together as a man and woman do. "diversity" is really about -DIVERTING- humanity away from God's Law: That's why the homosexual agenda has also become part of education's "diversity" curriculum. Abstinence is not tolerated because they are -DIVERTING- the youth away from God's Laws on morality and purity. "diversity" to talk about creationism isn't allowed because "in the beginning God CREATED"; thus educational "diversity" is about -DIVERTING- students away from God... -to- satan's lie.
The hypocrisy of it all is that it is not being "open-minded" at all. But rather, it is the planned funneling of humanity through the chutes into the corrals of corruption and rebellion. It is the same lie satan approached Eve with, "Did God -really- say? Oh, God knows that..." God is really trying to stifle you... there is soooo much more you could know and experience. Just open your mind to think of the possibilities. It's like the hippy expression, "Try it, you'll like it"; or, "Just go for it"; or like somebody I knew had the motto that they wanted to "try new things". Diversity of the "open mind", to tolerate and eventually accept anything and everything.... EVEN IF God calls it "sin". And that chute where -everybody- is trying the 'same' open-minded things leads to the corral of "death".
Have you ever noticed how "open-mindedness" does not truly allow an individual their -own- thoughts and actions? But it is "diversity" to the -same- pre-planned agenda, the same "chute" the activists want you to traverse. And -everybody- is "diverse" to the SAME THING.
It is not "diversity" at all, but everybody is being DIVERTED to that one and -same- "chute".
This is why God commanded Israel...
This is exactly what education is doing to our children regarding Islam. The pretext is that it is "Islamic hate" that attacked us on 9/11. But if only we would open our minds, we would learn that Islam is a "peace loving" religion. (As they conveniently leave out the parts where the "infidel" is to be tortured and killed.) And so the children 'practice' -being- Muslims. So, after they have pushed Israel into the sea, and come to America's shores, the nation will have -already- been converted; the children having been trained up to embrace the fatwas.
But what did God command?
Because there is a certain principle, which communism knows well, which is why they infiltrated through the teacher's unions and work through the education system. One of communism's doctrines states something on the order of: Give us a child till the age of 5, and they will be ours (communism's) for life. This is why the likes of Hillary Clinton work so hard to have government systems for pre-school day cares for children at a younger and younger age, because "it takes a village" to raise children.
Thus God's commands for parents to raise their children in Godly wisdom,
But in fact: DIVERT your child AWAY FROM SIN -TOWARDS- God's righteousness. God knows that "foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child" (Pr22:15a)
God never condones "tolerance" for sin. He says,
