A way to get people to focus on something else, such as when somebody wants to take people's attention away from similarities between their own country and a near-dictatorship and distract them with a story about a country overseas somewhere.

Get the Diversion mug.
A program created by the government to help "troubled teens" who find themselves in a position to getting a charge against them. to keep them "out of the court" the kids are accepted into a diversion program.

When getting a ticket would have been a better option in the first place.

The NBA is very diverse because of all the black members.

The United Nations needs more diversity because there's too many white people.
