difference between cultures. Although I am a liberal i do agree it has been taken to an extreme. People don't understand that other people's cultures do not need to be forced upon others. All that is needed is simple recognition. Everyone should be allowed to do their thing whether it is christmas, kwanza, or whatever. The difference is they should not have to abolish their own culture to avoid hurting other groups feelings. Wehn you played with your barbies on the playground, if another kid didn't like your barbie, that didn't mean you had to throw it away did you? No! the other kid just didn't play with it

A liberal euphimism or buzzword that polically-correct universities and corporations utilize to exclude whites (and sometimes religious persons, partucliarly Christians) in order to favor minorities and other "accepted" groups in the media--and that anything else that doesnt fall under the "diversity" label is racist, homophobic or narrowminded. This word has been twisted so much by the politically correct, that it soon will include pedophiles, rapists, drunkards, druggies, and those who practice beastiality by categorizing all of them as having a "disability." What crap.
Diversity is a modern day buzzword for STRAIGHTS, WHITES AND CHRISTIANS NEED NOT APPLY.

1) An old, old wooden ship, used in the Civil War era.

2) Variety, having many different forms of gender or ethnicity.
In addition, a lot of you have probably heard of the affiliates complaining about a lack of diversity on the News team.
