Diversity is not, in and of itself, strength (as the multi-cultis claim); diversity lends strength to shared beliefs.
And while cultural conservatives lament the commonalities our society seems to have lost, perhaps we’re gaining a new one:
On social media, the country seems to divide into two neat camps: Call them the woke and the resentful. Team Resentment is manned—pun very much intended—by people who are predominantly old and almost exclusively white. Team Woke is young, likely to be female, and predominantly black, brown, or Asian (though white “allies” do their dutiful part). These teams are roughly equal in number, and they disagree most vehemently, as well as most routinely, about the catchall known as political correctness.
Reality is nothing like this. As scholars Stephen Hawkins, Daniel Yudkin, Miriam Juan-Torres, and Tim Dixon argue in a report published Wednesday, “Hidden Tribes: A Study of America’s Polarized Landscape,” most Americans don’t fit into either of these camps. They also share more common ground than the daily fights on social media might suggest—including a general aversion to PC culture.
The whole thing is worth a read.
PC – like smug white progressivism itself – seems to be tied to income and education; there seems to be a correlation between being able to afford to feel “white guilt” and inflicting it on others.
Which, to be fair, is something anyone traveling through leftist circles in Minneapolis could tell you easily.
