See http://justcomm.org/jc-faq.htm#Q6.5 -------------------- FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS -------------------- Research shows that kids growing up in racially and economically diverse neighborhoods do better in life than those who grow up in segregated areas. I think it's interesting that Sharon thinks her son would be miserable in her community. I can imagine it's more difficult to live with people who have different politics, but wouldn't those respectful discussions make life richer? Not if he's the only Republican, but maybe if he had a group of moderate friends. What's wrong with attracting that kind of diversity? I understand the desire to look at other markers of diversity, but race is easy. Black people, even internationally, identify as so. It's ridiculous to assume they don't want cohousing when they aren't even represented in the movement. A community with racial diversity will have amazing cultural diversity as well. Crystal Farmer Sorry Fred I'm on my phone.
