True diversity

Snapperhead Soup comments:
Why is it that elite whites get to mix with the better kind of blacks like Obama who won't rob them or beat them up whereas poor whites must mix with the likes of Mike Tyson-types (via section 8 and etc)? ... 
As for elite whites, I say let's expose them to non-elite run-of-the-mill blacks. And let's see how long they remain 'progressive' and pro-'diversity'. ... 
And if we want non-elite whites to have a favorable view of blacks, I have a better idea. I say let's expose non-elite whites to elite blacks( who don't commit crime). That way, non-elite whites will have a more favorable view of blacks. 

I think this is an excellent idea. The Obamas should participate in an educational reality TV show in which various meathead white reality stars such as The Situation, Honey Boo Boo and others of that ilk, spend a month each as house guests of the Obamas in the White House.

Haven't you been saying for a while now that at least for Matt Yglesias, being beat up by a non-elite black hasn't changed his mind about anything?

Yglesias seems to have redoubled his desire for a vast tide of Hispanic immigrants to demographically swamp African-Americans.

Those much-vaunted Civil Rights Laws of the 50s and 60s didn't end segregation - they just made it so expensive that only 2 or 3 percent of the population can afford it.

Haven't we all been thinking this.

Matt can live in my old neighborhood, destroyed by black thugs, baby mamas and baby daddies who just keep making more thugs.

The director of Super Size Me did something similar in his reality show ("30 Days"?) from a lefty perspective. For example, he took a typical, American white guy and had him live with a Muslim family for a month so he'd get rid of his irrational Islamophobia. And he also took a white IT guy who was upset about American jobs going to India and had him live with a family in India for a month.

I wonder if someone could get away with doing the same thing from a non-lefty, non-didactic perspective? Play it straight, and do it under the aegis of expanding cultural awareness or something like that. Have an Upper West Side white person live with an African American family in the South Bronx or Bed-Stuy or somewhere for a month, and have someone from the African American family live with an Upper West Side family for a month (if no Upper West Siders volunteer, that could make for its own little documentary -- maybe bring in that Rutgers psychology prof for an explanation).

"I wonder if someone could get away with..."

Don't wonder, my friend, video production equipment is quite cheap nowadays.

If?

That's a short docu...just the Rutgers prof talking. Maybe we could run footage of the 'hood shot in Shaky-Cam under his voice.

elite blacks(who don't commit crime)

Elite blacks don't commit crimes? Maybe not street crimes . . .

Simply enact a Reverse Section 8 law that forces a "diversity satisfying" percentage of white elite liberal households to inhabit just one domicile in inner city ghettos - it would be a reverse on the elite of their NIMB hypocrisy. A Reverse Section 8 law would give our moral superiors a healthy taste of the medicine that they force down our middle class throats.

Oh My God. Honey Boo Boo is a real thing? I thought South Park was making that up.

To some extent this already happens and liberals adjust to maintain their shibboleths. In Montgomery County, MD there are many upper-middle class liberals whose children attend magnet schools where the magnet children are nearly all caucasian/asian and the non-magnet children are almost exclusively black/hispanic. The liberals will pester the school to have the magnet children be separated from the local children as much as possible (all in the name of safety, etc. of course). After they have successfully hermetically sealed their offspring off from the unwashed, at cocktail parties they will attempt to shame those whose children do not attend public school by braggging about the "diversity" at their children's school.
