How to Measure Diversity
The problem comes when one sells diversity as a goal, as opposed to unity as a goal. 
 If we all all Americans together, regardless of ethnic origin, then we find it easier to have more tolerance for people wanting different things. 
 If we are hyphenated Americans, then the fact that we may want different things can cause conflict.
         To wit. The list in this articles was completely racist. America is NOT, as stated in the article, 62% white, 17% Hispanic , 13% African, 6% Asian and 1% Native.
         Instead, it is 45% white, 17% Germanic-America, 17% Hispanic-American, 13% African-American, 6% Asian-American and 1% Native-American.
         Anyone who says Germanic Americans are just whites is a vicious racist.

NBC’s Connecticut TV Station Won’t Air Megyn Kelly’s Interview With Alex Jones
Because NO ONE should be allowed to know what dangerously right-wing extremists think.
We should be surprised when we meet their views in public, so they have a better chance to defeat us.

Trump Announces Rollback of Obama’s Cuba Policy
Typical Trump, this is all cosmetic.    
Long before the relaxation, Americans could visit Cuba without any hassle about groups or cultural motives: one simply said one was a journalist and flew there.  The fact that your journalism credentials were the 4 people who followed you blog were irrelevant.  That will continue unchanged under Trumps new Exec order.  
    The only major change is that the Cuban military will now need a 3rd-party (paper) intermediary, so that business with them can continue as usual.

This Muslim Convert Is Changing The Conversation About Women In Islam
"For as long as she can remember, Bellaoui has never quite fit in."
That is one of the reason she dresses as she does: she is saying: "I am not of you. I am different and it is important to me that you know that I am different and not of your society."
If it were not Islam, it would be something else.
