Vi Putnam Quotes

Robert Putnam, Harvard professor and author of Bowling Alone, has spent years studying the effects of ethnic diversity on a communitys well-being. It turns out diversity is a train wreck. Contrary to his expectation—and desire!—Putnams study showed that the greater the ethnic diversity, the less people trusted their neighbors, their local leaders, and even the news. People in diverse communities gave less to charity, voted less, had fewer friends, were more unhappy, and were more likely to describe television as "my most important form of entertainment." It was not, Putnam said, that people in diverse communities trusted people of their own ethnicity more, and other races less. They didnt trust anyone.28 The difference in neighborliness between an ethnically homogeneous town, such as Bismarck, North Dakota, and a diverse one, such as Los Angeles, Putnam says, is "roughly the same as" the difference in a town with a 7 percent poverty rate compared with a 23 percent poverty rate.29
— Ann Coulter —

Thou mutters, Miss Putnam. Speak up."
Like she couldn't hear. She'd hear Chess if Chess ran to the other end of the room, covered her mouth with her hands, and whispered "Fuck you," but she couldn't hear Chess standing four feet away from her.

— Stacia Kane
