More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    recall the episode of the original Star Trek guest-starring Frank Gorshin as a half black/half white- literally, the colors running length wise down opposite sides of his body- being prejudiced against another similarly-colored being.
    Why?
    Because their coloration was on opposite sides of their bodies.

    There must always be a one-up group and a one-down group. Always. It's the idiot's way of claiming superiority. There is no basis in logic, usually. Just primitive fears of anything differing from self.

    It must be terrible to go through life so afflicted. How shut-out, isolated, suffocating a world must be that is willfully made that much smaller.

    And yet, when I bring up diversity, even some Progressives moan and rant. So far, not one of them who pushes back has bothered to learn what the initiatives are all about. They only feel an overwhelming need to "protect their own".

    But mostly, it's the Conservatives who stamp their feet and holler against anything that might dilute their fantastic world of racial hierarchy.
    Fuck them.
