President Donald Trum celebrated diversity by becoming the first Republican president to acknowledge the LGBT celebration of Pride Month on Friday.

Trump said in a tweet:

“As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals on the basis of their sexual orientation,”

and went further :

“My Administration has launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality and invite all nations to join us in this effort!”

Reader says Diversity of thought is the most socially beneficial form of diversity

Reader says Diversity of thought is the most socially beneficial form of diversity.

Thesis. Antithesis. Synthesis. Repeat. This is the very definition of social progress.

“Small is the number of them that think with their own minds, and feel with their own hearts.” (Albert Einstein)

Diversity of skin color is a dying distinction over which paleoliberals, thugs and other hustlers are obsessed, solely for their own benefit. Someday we’ll wake up and find ourselves rid of them. What a blessed day that will be!

OTOH cultural distinctions are both particularly sticky and extremely consequential. The in and outs, ups and downs, benefits and drawbacks, of cultural diversity are therefore demonstrably worthy subjects of national discussion.

Race? Not so much.
