Why no diversity at wine tastings?

Please limit discussion in this area to local and state politics.

Why no diversity at wine tastings?

Postby baked goods » Mon Sep 09, 2013 9:00 am

I witnessed a lot of yuppies and those quick to signal their perceived social status talking about diversity at two wine tastings this weekend. However diversity wasn't being practiced onsite. Diversity seems to be required elsewhere, but not at wine tastings.

"Bottle vs. box" does not constitute a discussion of diversity. Most who attend wine tastings understand that boxed wine will not be presented.

It's not covered under the 2nd or 14th amendment. Therefore, we don't care. Now go drink a beer .

Apparently your presence fulfilled the quota for Mustelidae, so I don't see what you're complaining about.

He counts twice, because he fulfills the quota for Mephitidae too.

Meade's been trolling wine tastings? Did someone bring a box of Moscato?

Oh, and the reason there aren't more minorities at wine tastings is the same reason there aren't more minorities at Tyrol Basin. Not their bag.

Maybe he's complaining that no Mormons were at the tastings.

I was at the Middleton Wine Walk on Thursday night. Of the 250 tickets sold I saw 3 African Americans.

At the Northshore Inline Marthon in Duluth I saw 4 African Americans out of over 3,000 participants.

Why is there no diversity at inline skating events?

Also, I only saw 3 African Americans in Duluth the whole weekend. Why is there no diversity in Duluth?

Inquiring idiots want to know.
