During my years at my university, "diversity" came to mean "more black people" and nothing else. We had few Hispanics then (Ohio, you know), but large numbers of Indians, Pakistanis, Chinese, Arabs, and Koreans. That, apparently, doesn't count as "diversity".

There used to be these people going round with slogans bracketed 'an idea whose time has come'.

It was always apparent it was just talk, that they believed just talking was enough to 'end world hunger':


My favourite slogan was from Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz: 'What are words worth?'
