    Diversity should be organic. Something that naturally comes about from consensual relations.
    Not something a government or elite entity plans to force onto a people.
    If for example Canada and Japan grows strong ties, gets along well, they'll naturally migrate back and forth creating diversity.
    But it's no elitist entity's place to cause chaos, triggering a migrant crisis to force migrations as we saw in Syria.

    Still catering to the things that only interest the overgrown children known as SJWs, are you? You need to stop, it only makes our social situation worse when you cater to every whim that a child has.

    This is a agenda. They are trying for lgbtq(gayness) and abortion and etc natural and making you accept it. They aren’t worried about us grown ups, they want the kids that are coming up because they don’t know anything. Why are they doing this and making it go main steam?

    It’s called “human emotion” because the school system in America is ill prepared to take on the immense chore to teach your idiot children how to formulate decisive words, which convey ownership of those thoughts into words, so we have this crutch in our society called emojis. If you use them, you’re only displaying how out of touch you are with reality.
