    So is the diversity studies factory hiring? Or is this just another excuse to hate on white people?

  • One LibIknow

    RCC is garbage, and everything they feature is garbage.

    • Greg

      VERY EXPENSIVE at that!

      Time to abolish Reston’s special tax district 5.

    “He holds a master’s degree in diversity studies.” Thanks for the belly laugh.

    Mike M’s 12-step plan to achieve cross-cultural communication and understanding:
    1) Stop hating people because they disagree with you.
    2) Stop calling people you hate because they disagree with you haters.
    3) Stop calling people racist because they don’t believe justice, or anything else should be applied differently based upon race.
    4) Stop embracing every religion as diversity – except for Christianity.
    5) Stop buying the subtext that white males are evil.
    6) Embrace that this great country was founded by Europeans and built upon European principles. It’s OK.
    7) Accept the fact that European white males brought the planet into the modern world. It’s OK.
    8) Stop committing indiscriminate mass murder in the name of your god and stop being ambiguous about those who commit indiscriminate mass murder in the name of their god.
    9) Accept that residency in our great country is not free, it shouldn’t even be cheap. Current residents have a right to lawfully control the flow of population into their midst.
    10) Stop pretending that people’s interests are completely different based upon their gender, race, creed, ethnicity, or sexual orientation,
    11) White people, stop patronizing black people like it makes you an instant hero. It’s demeaning to them.
    12) Black people, ask white people who think you need patronizing to stuff it.
    . . . And to all a good night.

    As a multi-racial individual, i’ve got all tbe multi-cultural doversity and communication that i need.

    • Mike M

      Somewhere there is an on-line university wanting to stamp you your doctorate based on credit for “life experience.” Three hundred and sixty-five dollars, please.

  • Willie Reston

    When I hear a name like Josh Goldstein, I definitely think of hip-hop.

    • Mike M

      Producers.

    This comment was censored for political and religious reasons. So much for multi-cultural communication.

  • Nope

    Sounds to me like its just going to be a bunch of white people hating. I’ll pass.

  • RestonAssurance

    Sounds like a lovely concert. I enjoy learning more about other people. Multiculturalism enriches us. Unity in diversity strengthens us.
