I believe in solving problems, not sharing them.


I was listening to a segment on our local NPR station about Cambodians in Long Beach (?) whose population center was broken up into four different districts, and how this has prevented them from being represented "as Cambodians".

So I started to think about what being (or not being) represented "as a Cambodian" means.

What do "Cambodians" need that's different from what anyone else needs? Everything written in Cambodian?

I can understand how people might need good schools, road repair, and better policing and ambulance service, better communications infrastructure... but how does banding together "as Cambodians" help them achieve those goals? The only thing I can think of is that they're perhaps poorer than the surrounding districts, and since they're broken up they can't represent their ECONOMIC interests but .... ???

If you look deeper into the tactics of the illiberal, regressionist Left, you'll find that it is teeming with racism and that identity politics are designed to provoke self segregation. In the 90's and early 2000, race relations in the US were better than they ever had been, but in the last 10 years there's been some massive leaps backward, championed by the Left. It wouldn't surprise me if some of these groups start demanding their own drinking fountains and the colleges and large companies acquiesce out of fear of bad publicity.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

Maybe you should ask them instead of guessing? Your guesses tend to reveal you prejudicial nature and paint almost anything you don't understand in a negative light.
