"optional" essays

Which looks worse -- not including a diversity/hardships statement or including one that's just bad?  This suburban, middle class, athiest, heterosexual white girl couldn't come up with something that didn't sound horrid.

If you're not diverse then there is no reason for a diversity essay.  If you've never experienced hardships then there is no reason for a hardship essay.  I'm sure they could see through a fake essay if you're as normal as you say you are. ;)

What is the context where the application asks for the essays?
