Lewis Diuguid writes that “Missouri sided with McCain, but America passed the diversity test” (11/12, Opinion, “For every American, a time of celebration”). I read the full commentary several times to see if I was missing something but came up with the same conclusion each time.
Apparently, by voting for McCain, I either do not understand diversity, do not want diversity or it must be a racial issue that I did not vote for Obama. I take offense to this blanket Diuguid has thrown over those of us who did not pass his “diversity test” simply because we voted based on our basic principles and political ideals regarding many serious issues.
It will be difficult to sit my family down and explain to our six children, four of whom are white and two who are African-American, that Dad failed the “diversity test.”
