I remember at school in tenth grade health class we played a strange little game. We broke up into groups of four and each group had to choose 5 out of 12 potential, hypothetical people to bring with them into a bomb shelter and to wait out an Earth-shattering nuclear war with and then rebuild the world with. What this has to do with health is beyond me. I was placed in a group with three *******ed girls. One of the people on the list was a "black African militant". I thought we were just going to skip over him, for obvious reasons, but the girls insisted that we take him because "we need diversity". I think I remember the conversation pretty well. Me: "Why do we need diversity?" Other person: "Because it teaches people to be caring." Me: "Not really, diversity just causes problems." Other person: "No, we need diversity." Me: "The world would be a much better place if there was only one race. Besides, how will a militant help us survive?" Other person: "He could protect us." Me: "What are you talking about? He'd probably rape and kill us." Other person: "No, he wouldn't do that." Me: "Why not?" Other person: ".... well we need diversity." Me: "We need it badly enough to bunk with a black terrorist for years?" Other person: "He's not a terrorist, he's a person just like you or me." It went on like that for a while. It was the most idiotic conversation I've ever been a part of. Eventually I gave up and we ended up taking the militant. Fortunately, and to my great surprise, the super-liberal health teacher said that it "probably wasn't a good idea" to take him because he was pretty much a mercenary. I expected her to applaud our decision but I guess she has some sense.
