Who can disagree with that kind of argumentation? Not me.

In terms of diversity, there are models of integration and multiculturalism that we should be looking at instead of assuming that we need homogenous groups to achieve social harmony. It is an interesting topic, and perhaps there could be a lengthier discussion about it.
Who can disagree, diversity wise? There's nothing more interesting than a 30 minute chat on integration and multiculturalism models that are superior to homogeneous models of mono-cultural harmony with a little jazz music on the side.

Or maybe John and Glenn could just keep talking about reality in 21st Century America, and leave out all the left wing jargon and nonsense.
