i named two exceptions to my statement that i dont think the south is all that diverse.  you named 3 non-diverse places in the north in order to counter a point that i never stated (that the NE is diverse -- i only said some parts of it are).  if you dont see the difference between what i said and what you said, good luck in law school with that style of argumentation, but im seriously just not going to waste my time with this anymore.

...your idea of a barbeque include hot dogs and hamburgers


(i'll admit i assumed the opposite of your statement to make mine, not an overly farfetched thing to do in these types of discussions.  however, when's the last time you heard of a LS using point-counterpoint for instruction?  )

...you think 'cause your school has 3 black kids and a handful of asians that you're diverse.

3 black kids and a handful of asians would be considered diverse in Wyoming

oakland california is the most diverse area in the U.S.  NYC is the most segregated

but we northerners measure diversity as an appreciation for multiculturalism.. not race

have any of you ever been here?  really, have you?  or are you basing your lack of diverstiy in the South on preconceived notions of racism?  that's completely different.

ive been to all the southern states except mississippi and arkansas.  aside from the large cities like Atlanta and St. Louis, i didnt see much diversity.

The city of Atlanta is about 90% black and the suburbs are about 90% white; is that diverse?  Is almost all black diverse?  I don't know because diversity discussions are stupid as far as I am concerned.  I know people of various races and backgrounds because they are the people I have met along the way, but I don't give a *&^% if my friends are a diverse bunch.  It is funny how 'diversity' has become some pseudo-tool to measure toleranse or somehtieng.  Who gives a *&^%?

by diversity i wasnt referring to X% blacks, X% asians, X% whites, etc... thats why i disagree with the current affirmative action system.  i was talking about something more along the lines with what feminine hygiene product says above.  HTH.

So a bunch of white people who say they appreciate other cultures would be diverse?

I love the good luck in law school line.
