"Diversity means that you have to start locking up your bicycle"

Putnam has been engaged in a comprehensive study of the relationship
between trust within communities and their ethnic diversity. His conclusion based on over 40 cases and 30 000 people within the United States is that, other things being equal, more diversity in a community is associated with less trust both between and within ethnic groups. -- Robert D. Putnam - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia [HT: Ilka and Belmont]

Your Say

My daughter and Son-in-law just had there garage set on fire after being robbed and graffiti-ed. High-dollar bikes were stolen.

The day before the police were called for loiterers. Lets just say their skin was darkish in color.
