Younger people have been brain washed with cultural diversity and now they don't see any difference between a illegal alien and a citizen. How sad and pathetic.

I try and use businesses that don't have illegals working for them but it aint easy. The end is not far off for America, and to think it will be destroyed by its own citizens.

Cultural diversity is something you try so hard to resist yet it's all around you.

Los Rico, not for many illegals. They don't learn to speak English, and a lot are taught that portions of the US are Mexico. The winner writes history.

Los Rico Extraordinaire - IMHO cultural diversity is aka "Respect other people and other ways while they disresprect me and my ways." I shall be more than happy to meet anyone halfway and compromise with them on viewpoints and opinions as long as I perceive a like minded attitude.
Much to often I have witnessed others calling for or demanding respect while not dispensing the first ounce of respect in return.
Nothing new here I know, but to use cultural diversity as a method to gain respect is utterly void unless that cultural diversity flows in both directions.

AMERICAN MAN #13 - I agree with you, illegals are just that - illegal. If my previous post did not support that opinion then I stand corrected.
I am in your corner AMERICAN MAN, the illegals must leave of their own accord or be deported ASAP.

Having grown up in a very diverse area, there is a difference between cultural diversity and refusing to assimilate.

Cultural diveristy to me means that when you move to a new country, to remember who you are and where you came from but you also embrace the new land you live in, learn the language and take pride in it. You share your heritage with others but do not force it. This is what all the immigrants I knew did when I was growing up. Church socials were great as this was a time when every one brought a dish, often from their home land, and shared stories. But they all spoke English and there was no hypenation names.

Ironically, Liberals are some of the biggest when it comes to killing diversity in many areas. Are you aware we can not longer have Christmas, Valentines or Halloween parties in schools because someone may be offended. But we have to learn about other Holy days from other cultures and even have celebrations for them? Now, I am not a Christian but I was very offended when kids were told to stop celebrating X in schools because it was socially offensive to others, culturally offensive.

Cultural diversity is joining in the celebrations fo your neighbors and friends. I am never offended when I get a Christmas card.

Cultural diversity means sharing without force. Embracing who you wish to become while remembering your heritage. It does NOT mean forcing every this to bow down and cater to you and then use diversity as your rally cry. You can maintain your heritage while assimilating. My family did. Many of my friends who are immigrants have. But they are first and foremost Americans and proud to be so while teaching us about where they came from.
