I agree with Kieth. Diversity is not always a good thing. While it's true that a certain amount of diversity can add spice to a society, encouraging people to fragment according to race and ethnicity, is a racists dream! Think about it. A racist wants to fragment society so that he has a scapegoat.

It is not the 50's or 60's anymore. I see no reason to give special treatment to any race or ethnic group. By doing so, isn't that the very definition of racism?

There are some things that are extremely important to keeping a country and a society, strong, unified and healthy. Probably the most unifying element is common language. I'm not saying that having a second language is bad. I think it's a very good thing. It's the kind of spice I wrote about earlier...but as a primary language, this country speaks English, and it should remain so.

Good article - am clearly interested in this field of our industry - as well as how it affects and effects buying and reaching the minority-based audience. Isn't 2024 the year that the minority becomes the majority nationwide? What of ownership and buying then?
Thanks Sherman.

(Not sure if the first comment left is meant to be sarcastic..or maybe, at least, ironic?)

We have reached a point in time where society and the government must stop looking at issues with their racial glasses on. Remember back in the 40's, 50's, 60's... where we truly had communities. There were no black stations, hispanic stations, korean stations... we all were exposed to the same general stuff. Today we are segmented by race and we don't know each other anymore. And our newcomers aren't assimilating because they tune into their own ethnic station and tune everythubg else out. All stations should be English only.
