American Planning Association

There is never a dearth of bad news for pro-white bloggers to write about.  We simply do not have “slow news days”.  All we have to do is open any newspaper or magazine and within seconds we find anti-white propaganda staring us back in the face.  Often enough, it is interesting enough to write about.

But not this time.  Forbes Magazine just ran an article describing America’s ten greatest neighborhoods according to the American Planning Association (APA).  To my delight, the word “diversity” appeared only once:

In Boston the affluent Back Bay neighborhood, which contains Victorian brownstones and some of the city’s tallest skyscrapers, is another favorite (though not without some controversy due to the architectural diversity of the area, says an APA spokesman).

How refreshing!  The word “vibrant” appears twice – but without any reference to ethnic diversity.  On the contrary, the…

… committee of four examines several aspects of a neighborhood, including its sense of community and overall composition, its local character and environment and sustainability practices.

I have no idea what they mean by “overall composition”, but ethnically diverse neighborhoods are not known for their sense of of community, local character or sustainability practices.  This is due to the fact that an ethnically diverse neighborhood is simply a location where several communities coexist.  In order for it to be a single community, the various components would have to assimilate – losing its ethnic diversity in the process.  The greater its ethnic diversity, the less community cohesion there will be.  Of course there can be communities of various distinct ethnic groups that get along well and work together – but this can only be short-lived; absent rivalry and animosity, those groups will eventually melt into each other.

Could it be that groups like the APA are starting to recognize the above obvious truths?  Could it be that the iron fist of diversity is finally starting to rust?

    I don’t know where the idea came from (except ideology and wishful thinking) that residential neighborhoods are supposed to be diverse.

    Is diversity a good thing if young singles want to stay up partying at night while families are putting kids to bed? Or if children want to ride bikes on the same sidewalks senior citizens use? Or if people need to ask and get directions in Spanish, Chinese and Urdu?

    Neighborhoods work best when everyone has the same expectation of public behavior. To the extent there’s population for it, encourage everyone to live where their culture and values are normative.

    Even in super-majority White neighborhoods there is not a sense of community. If you have bad and/or weak families, you cannot have communities. You just have localities.

      Television, video games and the general erosion of family life have all taken their tolls on community. But a community does not have to be an ideal one in order to be a community.

      I once read an interesting essay suggesting “air conditioning” and “television” killed communities. The author said before “air conditioning” everyone sat outside in the evenings to keep cool. Neighbors socialized while the kids ran around and played. After air conditioning everyone just sat inside watching the idiot box.

        And then someone messed up by putting the Internet into every thinking person’s home, so we listen to discussions like this instead of the mind-control line.

    Well, the solution is obvious: Ban the internet and confiscate all air conditioners.
