From Daily Press…

ared Taylor, editor of the racial-issues-oriented American Renaissance, was scheduled to take part in an hourlong speech and question-and-answer session in a second-floor conference room at University Center.

His 40-minute speech, however, was followed by nearly an hour of spirited discussion with the crowd, with dozens of people raising their hands at each chance to ask a question.

During his prepared remarks, Taylor pointed to Denmark, Japan and China as examples of prosperous “homogenous” countries. Meanwhile, he said, companies spend an estimated $8 billion a year to train employees on diversity programs in the United States.

“If it were a wonderful thing,” he said of diversity, “they would seek it out.”

Taylor pointed to writings of historical figures to support his view, and he cited specific studies and some academic scholars who researched the costs of diversity initiatives and their economic yield. They also supported his view that increased diversity — specifically, racial diversity — was a weakness, he said.

Although he opposes forced integration, he said, he isn’t advocating forced segregation. Instead, people could associate freely, he said.
