Peter Schwartz Quote

“The core of racism is the notion that the individual is meaningless and that membership in the collective -- the race -- is the source of his identity and value. ... The notion of  'diversity' entails exactly the same premises as racism -- that one's ideas are determined by one's race and that the source of an individual's identity is his ethnic heritage.”

Weirdly written but accurate enough

E Archer, NYC

Right -- the collectivists identity themselves as a group. "Us and Them" rather than the individuals comprised. Diversity is an attempt to treat all 'groups' as equal even if it means granting special license to select individuals.

Martin Foster, Centurion

True - It's herd-mindedness!


Easy for Peter Schwartz, a member of the historical majority to maintain - as if he had some expertise in the topic.

Robert, St. Emilion

Again, another dumb quote not worth responding too!

If anonymous and Robert are against something, you know it's right.

Mike, Norwalk

anonymous, we understand the progressive / liberal - divide / distract / distort use of ad hominems; what is your expertise that you may so vehemently castigate the quote's author and wish to be taken seriously?
