No Motley Crew [LINK]

This is one word I will not yield:

Lisa Piel points out that the "diverse" musical group profiled in an article consists of "affluent, homogeneous white girls." To be truly diverse, she says it would have to include "a mixture of race and ethnicity," plus "socio-educational circumstances."

Please, can we stop playing this game? The D-word clearly referred to the personalities the young girls projected on stage, not their racial or economic backgrounds. It's perfectly okay for people with similar backgrounds to have "diverse" personalities. Still, I'd appreciate it if the more hypersensitive among us would tone it down a bit.

As yet, no comments:
