Vibrant Pittsburgh: Blacks must be part of diversity

There are 5 comments on the New Pittsburgh Courier Online story from Feb 13, 2013, titled Vibrant Pittsburgh: Blacks must be part of diversity. In it, New Pittsburgh Courier Online reports that:

Many have heard the rumblings, the comments. And when someone like Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl or County Executive Rich Fitzgerald touts a commitment to diversity and the next class of police academy graduates is all White-but includes women, the rumblings get louder; diversity does not mean Black.

In the hidden meanings of the Progressive Democrat, especially the type we have in Pittsburgh, YES IT DOES. AFFIRMATIVE ACTION means non qualified for the job black. Welfare mother means black female. Activist reverend means black guy who has an audience. Crack dealer means young black. Ho means black female. Rich guy means white male. RACIST MEANS ANY ONE WHO DISAGREES AND IS NOT BLACK..

All you have to do is read the media crap to see what I'm talking about. That's how they get to label every idea except Obama's as racist. It's the way they think. It's a mental illness, but, if you are honest you can find it every day in one form or another.

Affirmative action is a failure, and always has been. Placing someone in a position they are not qualified for, because of the color of their skin, is an absurdly racist concept. If Pittsburgh is such a racist town toward blacks, why would any of them stay here? Personally I would leave. You can get section-8 in more welcoming towns, like Atlanta or Miami. And those places are much warmer.

Pittsburgh is a very diverse city. You have lots fine folks of various Eastern and Western European descent populating much of the City. I've never been anywhere in America with more Poles and Slavs than Pittsburgh and that is the kind of diversity that we should be promoting to the rest of America.

you may ask the same question about the UK - it is cold and wet, and according to the negroes, we are terribly "Rascits". But they will do anything to get in.
