When do you predict the point of inflection will occur for diversity?
Since the beginning of time, most populations start as one ethnic group that may develop subgroups of that population but always remain for the most part "same."

Arguably since the turn of the century, our government and other world government leaders have been pushing to make each other's country more diverse (multiple different ethnic groups) than ever.

But arguably, the opportunity cost of diversity is losing one's core ethnic characteristics. A group of 10 different ethnic people will never share 100% the same viewpoints.

At what point do these countries decide that too much diversity is ruining the core characteristics of their population/country?

At the point where the diversity takes precedent over competence.

I take it that you are white. White people are the only ones who complain about diversity. Could it be that due to assimilation that Caucasian physical characteristics disappear.
The thing that happen is that groups will then become seperated by class and religion

You do realize that half the point is to 'ruin' the core characteristics of said country?

Quick question; Do you or not believe that the founding fathers created the Declaration of Independence from a core ideology of what America should be?

I think Europe is much further down this path than the U.S. It looks like we will know the answer pretty soon.

yes they did, and they're all dead now. What's your point?

The Constitution is a rough outline, but every generation creates the America they want to see

I retired before I was able to see a female Cavalry Squadron CSM or had to sit in a meeting with a female Scout Troop 1SG.

Seeing how a CSM seeming only bitches about vehicle alignment and Medpros, I figure I left at the right time. If I wanted to get bitched at by a woman, I’d just stay home.

They don't. That's the entire point. When your world view revolves around demonizing anything and everything created by "the white man" the only end goal is destruction of everything.

Critical Theory at it's finest.

Oh lord you were Cav? You guys are fricking nuts. I thought infantry bubbas were crazy until I ran into your crew.

Not even sure how to respond to that to be honest.

Such a rough outline the United States Supreme Court uses its guidelines to rule on court cases every day?

Dad fails the brown paper bag test.

I am always mistaken for being Mexican if that helps haha.

Although, you asking that question is funny. Like there are qualifiers for having certain thoughts.

Pretty sad you box yourself in like that.

And If I have lived in Japan and Singapore, and these places ask very similar questions?

I am probably one of most widely traveled dudes on this board. I enjoy good food. I rail that the "World History” I learned in school was pretty much "European History". I am amazed at much of the customs that have developed in different countries. Just last night, I tried a new Japanese restaurant here in Duluth, MN, that is one of the most authentic Japanese meals I have had outside Japan, and learned its because the lady that owns it is Japanese and imports the ingredients directly.

In short, I am a BIG fan of exploring new cultures and adapting their best bits. That does not mean I want it in my back yard or for MY culture to lose its distinctive characteristics. In my opinion, too much emphasis on "melting pot" goals can wash out the layers that are so much fun to have.

I honestly don't understand the mentality of people who, on one hand, trumpet the values of multicultural diversity, but then get completely bent when you suggest that there are inherently things one culture does better than another.

At the end of the day, I just think it is one of the biggest examples of solutions looking for a problem. Let cultures evolve and intertwine organically, rather than that being a goal in and of itself.

America's shift from being a melting pot to a salad bowl is going to end up being the root cause of its decline and eventual downfall.
