Worldnutdaily: Diversity is Bad

The Worldnetdaily has their usual slanted reporting as they clutch their pearls at statements from the mayor of Kansas City,Kansas (not Missouri) to a large Latino conference about the increasing diversity of his city. That city is now less than half white, which the WND makes clear they think is a very bad thing. Here’s what the mayor actually said:

“Kansas City, Kansas, is a city with no ethnic majority. Kansas City, Kansas, is 40 percent white, 28 percent Latino, and 26 percent African-American,” Holland said. “Our school district speaks 62 different languages by the children every single day. And Kansas City, Kansas, has a proud heritage of welcoming all people into the community, people who are not welcome in other places.”

Latinos started coming with the Santa Fe railroad more than 100 years ago, to build the railroad, he said. Another railroad, the Underground Railroad, brought African-Americans to Kansas. “If they could get across the river they were free and settled in a township of Quindero.”

“We continue to have a number of groups of refugees from around the world,” he added, mentioning the large Hmong community that came in the 1970s and 80s following the Vietnam War.

In recent years, the city has welcomed more refugees from other parts of the world, including Muslim Somalia, Afghanistan and Iraq, Hindus from Bhutan and Buddhists and Muslims from Burma.

Kansas City has also thrown open its arms to the LGBT community, Holland said, even though most of the state of Kansas leans Republican.

Wow, how horrible. A diverse, welcoming community that doesn’t look like a sitcom from the 1950s. Yeah, I can see why the Worldnetdaily would find that idea frightening. It challenges Christian right hegemony.

    So what is the Whirled Nut Daily going to do about the racial and ethnic balance in Kansas City, KS?

  • raven

    White xians are now a minority in 19 states.

    And that number is on trend to go up.

    World Nuts Daily main audience, white xians, have nothing to look forward to except genocide by jesus the sky fairy, who is already 2,000 years late.

    @ ^ raven : Better never than late in this ‘ticular case!

    The second point of significance is the recording angels remark that Heaven, not human beings decides who qualifies. I take that to mean that if I were not an atheist, I would believe in a God who would choose to save people on the basis of the totality of their lives and not the pattern of their words. I think He would prefer an honest and righteous atheist to a TV preacher whose every word is God, God, God and whose deed is foul, foul, foul.

    I would also want a God who would not allow a Hell. Infinite torture can only be a punishment for infinite evil, and I don’t believe that infinite evil can be said to exist even in the case of a Hitler. Besides if most human governments are civilised enough to try to eliminate torture and outlaw cruel and unusual punishments, can we expect anything less of an all-merciful God?

    I feel that if there were an afterlife, punishment for evil would be reasonable and of a fixed term. And I feel that the longest and worst punishment would be reserved for those who slandered God by inventing Hell.

    If diversity is bad how come any of the WND clowns write for the publication? Joseph Farah is of Lebanese and Syrian descent. He’s an Arab American, which by WND standards makes him an unacceptable non-white.

    timgueguen, Joseph Farah is one of the good ones. He hates the right people.

    You really don’t want to put in “La Raza” and Mark Holland as search terms.

    A name change to White Supremacist Daily is long overdue.

    Well, diversity is what it’s all about — no diversity, no evolution, no evolution, no humanity.

  • Synfandel

    No evolution?! You clearly don’t read Marvel comics.
